Adoption Fee: $400.00 We are a Wisconsin state licensed dog rescue -WI# 402433   ***We do not have a central adoption center at this time. All our dogs are in private foster homes within WI.

Our Weight Classes are as follows: 0- 25lbs - Small 26- 45lbs - Medium 46-89 - Large 90+ X-large If you are adopting an adult dog, which we consider 6 months of age or older, your adoption fee includes the following: Spay/Neuter, Rabies and Distemper shots, dewormed, flea & tick preventative, heartworm tested and microchipped. If you are adopting a dog younger than 6 months of age, the dog will be up to date on the shots as per the dogs age. The dog will be dewormed, flea/tick preventative and microchipped. We only spay/neuter our dogs by 6 months of age. If you decide to adopt a younger dog than 6 months of age, they will need to be spayed/neutered at one of our preferred clinics.

Story
Check out our Facebook page and YouTube channel for more pictures & videos of our adoptable dogs!Updated: 4/5/24 Dog Name: Ezra Sex: Male (Neutered) Estimated Breed Mix: Shepherd Mix Approximate DOB: January 15, 2023 Approximate Weight: 69 lbs.  Description: This is Ezra. He's a very friendly and lovable Shepherd mix. He's usually a little shy when he first meets someone. However, if you give him a few minutes he'll be your best friend. Ezra enjoys going for walks/runs, playing catch, playing with other dogs or just running around in the backyard. He also enjoys relaxing with his humans during the evenings. He is housebroken, and is very good about letting us know when he needs to go outside. When he needs to go outside, rather than barking, he will knock on the patio door with his paw. He does the same when he is outside and wants to come in.   Ezra has a lot of energy, so having a fenced in yard, for him to run around in, would be a definite plus. Ezra loves going on walks too. He enjoys meeting up with other people and dogs in the neighborhood. He is friendly with everyone he meets. If it's storming outside, then his next favorite alternative to a walk outside, is a trip to Blain's Farm & Fleet (or other dog friendly store) to walk around, meet people and get treats. He gets along great with other dogs as well. We have another smaller dog in our home, and they both get along, and like to play together. But, he would also be happy being the only dog in the family, getting all of the attention.       Adoption Fee: $350.00   ***We do not have a central adoption center at this time.
