Story
Meet Frosty! Oh! Hello, my name is Frosty. You can't sneak up on me like that, I'm deaf and can't hear you coming. If you just stomp your foot a little, then I can feel the vibrations. You could also be really gentle when waking me, or if I'm awake, you could wave your hand to make sure I see you. I'm a super good boy, and I must have been loved at one point because I'm a well trained gentleman. I go potty outside, I do very well with all the humans! I haven't met any cats, and I'm selective about my dog friends and would rather be able to show you all of my love without others interfering, so I would do best as your one and only. Now that I'm a 70-pound senior, I'm looking to be loved by humans who will want me forever! I really enjoy cozy, warm places to nap and will even wear a sweater to help me stay warm in the cold temps. Boy, no one told me it was going to be so cold in Wisconsin! I love to go on sniffari walks and play a little with my stuffies inside the house. But the thing I love the most is getting to spend time with my people. Snuggles on the couch or in the big bed, butt scratchies and getting pets are some of my all-time favorite things. Foster mom says I have the best personality and can be quite a goof from time to time. She says I've been the best house guest, and anyone would be lucky to have me in their home! I don't need to be in a crate while you're away because I don't chew on things that aren't mine, and I'd do awesome going anywhere you'd like to take me. All in all, I'm a pretty well-rounded guy just looking for someone who needs a loving companion to make their days brighter! I sure hope that's you! *Frosty has a neuter appointment scheduled for Jan 30, and can go to his forever home after that. *Frosty is being fostered in Plover, WI. Albert's Dog Lounge is a specialty rescue focusing primarily on senior and special needs dogs. Our process includes an approved application, reference checks, a homevisit, and then a meet and greet with the dog. Adoption fee is $300, ($550 for a pair).

Story
Meet Lynx, the perfectly charming pup with a name that's straight out of a DC villain playbook! This talkative and sassy sweetheart may have a villainous moniker, but she's really just a furball of love waiting to conquer your heart. Lynx was discovered on a country road, holding her own with five equally fabulous siblings. She's not just a lapdog; she's a lap-legend - cuddling like it's her superpower. Lynx has a talent for turning ordinary moments into extraordinary memories with her witty banter and adorable antics. If you're ready for a canine companion who can talk the talk, sass the sass, and cuddle like a champ, then Lynx is your leading lady. Don't let this villainous name fool you; Lynx is ready to be the hero of her own happily-ever-after. Adopt her, and let the laughter-filled adventures begin! Local adoption fee is $250 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $500 (includes transport to your area - $50 Temporary Fuel Charge will be added)

Meatloaf... its whats for DINNER!!! I will take a side of mashed taters and some GRAVY too :) I am actually the puppy, formerly known as HAMBURGER, but mixed with some love, spice and a little ketchup and turned into THIS BIG HUNKA LOVE!! (with a side of cute and silly too) I have a big heart and a big personality too. I want to be someone's really really good friend, and guess what?? I am even BETTER on the second day! Put a slice of Meatloaf between two slices of bread with more ketchup and you are feasting again for lunch! Anyway, enuff about food.. I am seriously getting hungry! The kind of hunger that can only be satisfied with a REAL FAMILY like yours! I am sweet and happy, I am goofy and happy and I am squishy and happy too! So if you have not figured it out yet... I AM HAPPY!!! I am pretty good with other dogs, I can share... if I have to!! I am kind of a couch potato, if you are into napping I am down with that. I can hike and do active stuff too, if you are into that. But just like after eating a big meatloaf sandwich, the best thing to do is to take a nap :) So look me up, here are my stats- I am lovely, and a solid 72#. I was treated for heartworms and am one big hunk-o-love ready for you :):) Be the bread to my Meatloaf!! ADOPT ME!!!! https://www.shelterluv.com/matchme/adopt/GDR/Dog Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $400 (includes transport to your area - $50 Temporary Fuel Charge will be added)

Story
It's a pleasure to meet you, my name is Walter! I like to greet people the old fashioned way, a tip of the nose, a meeting of the eyes, and a formal introduction of who I am. I've always kind of been an old-soul, at least that's what people tell me, with my wrinkled fur and gentle eyes. As an older gentleman I tend to have a bit more patience than these young whippersnapper pups. You'll find me waddling around quite slowly but my tail still wagging none the less! I have been known to snap when nervous, but I have come so far and I just need a little time and patience. Cause I just so want to be your big goofy friend! I have a soft and squishy face to go along with my squishy personality! I am great with my people and great with other dogs too. I am shy at the very first but am on the fast track to love! As a senior dog there's really only one thing I care about ... TREATS ... just kidding, it's being close to others. Being close to others helps remind me that I am here and my story is still being written with infinite possibilities. Perhaps you and I could write the next chapter together?

Story
Meet Turbo I was searching for a cheesy pick up line to use, but cheesy pickup lines, do not actually contain cheese....how do the human says....ironical. My name is ironical too, they call me Turbo but I cannot go turbo speed. When I was at the city shelter they took a video of me nudging my pink leopard print blankets around to make a little nest. From this video you could determine that my back legs did not seem to be opawrating at 100%. They thought, easy peasy pumpkin spice squeezy, he probably just needs FHO surgery and he will be good as new. Wrong. Before being taken to animal control, I must have endured a trauma to my head. This left me with some neurogoggleical, newrologsiscal, neurological challenges. I can walk and romp like the best of 'em, until finally my back legs just kinda give up and refuse to agree with me. Navigating steps and stairs is a big whoa, but with a little guidance, I can do some low steps. I need a one story house without a lot of stairs. Or a home with no stairs at all would be really ideal! The volunteers ordered me some socks to walk on smooth floors, I prefer carpet but I can manage both. I love everyone I meet. But due to my head trauma I appear cross eyed and have limited vision. In order to recognize a dog or a people, I have to get right up in their biz and sniff them. Some dogs find this action annoying but I can't help it, when your eyes don't work, you gotta use your snoozle. Therefur, I need a home with dogs and people that don't mind my personal space invasions. I am a space invader??? I thought I was a Pitbull??? My physical challenges make for some really comical moments. When you holler my name, I come running full-ish speed. My brakes don't work. I usually make a Seinfeld Kramer style entrance. I love to hear my name and be loved on, my run might be silly, but I feel like a white knight galloping in on a fierce stallion. You just have to use your imagination. The hope is that with lots of practice, my legs will get stronger and more coordinated. I need a home that understands that I might not ever be able to climb mount Kilimanjaro or even a mole hill. The nice thing about me is that I am quiet, don't bark, and never react poorly to any dogs or people, except for nipping a finger or two when taking treats, because my aim is off and dang it, I am just excited about the weenie. I can't see the weenie, but I can smell the weenie, so I just go for it. And in all honesty, finger tips and weenies are the exact same color. Sawry! I need an adopter or foster than won't mind helping a guy up into the vehicle or onto the couch. Remember, I can't navigate too many ups and downs, so flat grippy surfaces are best. I am voice activated and will follow you to the ends of the earth if you talk to me, whelp, maybe not the ends of the earth, but at least from the bedroom to the kitchen for a weenie. Do you want to be my friend? Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX)
