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.

Story
Meet Elvis. He’s one of a kind Bulldog mix. He just turned one in December. Mostly white with blue eyes. He has a clef lip . This does not give him any health issues, but adds to his character. I love this dog and have failed him. He has become dog reactive and doesn’t always get along with my other much larger dog. I am taking care of family member full time now and do not have the ability to work with him now. He has always been a cuddle baby. He may be heartbroken and will need patient, loving and experienced owner to help with this transition. It is important that he is the only pet in the household. I was unable to add adoption fee of 75$.
