Story
Hi I'm Gibler! I came in from Whitewater with Jesse, Joey, and DJ. I'm pretty easy going and love attention. I love my walks and mind my own business for the most part. Boy dogs are ok but pushy female dogs I don't care for.

Story
Hi I'm Joey, I'm sure Jesse talked about me already, but I'm the handsome one! I was a stray with 3 other dogs in Whitewater and then we came to Lakeland. I'm a bigger boy who does walk pretty well on a leash and more or less mind my own business. I'd prefer a home without other dogs so I can soak up all the attention myself.

Story
Tucker has a big heart and is a protector at his core. Tucker loves to play...but plays rough! Therefore, we recommend a home without kids or cats. He can be hot and cold with other dogs, so it's probably best he be the solo dog also. Tucker absolutely adores women and would love the opportunity to be her knight in shining armor. If you're looking to give this guy a second chance, he's waiting for you and the chance to love again!Ask about him today

Story
Hi I'm Jesse! I came in with 3 other dogs I was hanging with on the streets of Whitewater. We got to take a ride in a police car, yep all four of us together. Joey and I look pretty similar so we could be siblings, but were not talking. I'm kind of big but I do walk well on a leash and have good manners. I don't react to other dogs but I don't want to live with them either. I will make a great companion!

Good with kids, Not good with cats, Needs experienced adopter, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Rescued from Chicago at a year old. Very energetic, wants to cuddle and lay with you. Training was a bit tough since he was older in the beginning but he has the fundamentals down. He has a high prey drive, so small animals like cats, rabbits, chickens, etc is not a good match. We have 2 acres and he has jumped our cow fencing chasing deer. We are estimating he’s about 6 yrs old now, he is one strong dog. We always say he’s a bull in a China shop. Now that we have a toddler whose autistic and a baby his time has been limited with us. Our schedule has been all over the place and we can’t find the time to walk him or play with him. He’s good with the children but when he’s excited he can’t control his speed and runs into the kids I.e bull in a China shop. We love him dearly but don’t have the time for him. He’s good with other dogs his size, but the dogs don’t like him. He’s like that annoying dog who doesn’t know boundaries and space. Small dogs he tramples over trying to play.

Story
Hi there, my name is Slim Jim. Or sometimes it's Bubba. Or Bubby. Or Slimbo. Or Rambo. I have a lot of names. My foster family says I have a big heart, big smarts, and big farts!  I have a big heart because I love lots of stuff, like making new human friends and CAR RIDES. Seriously I have no sense of stranger danger and will try to jump in anyone's car for a ride. I love a good chew treat and cheeseburgers. I love my blankie and sleeping all snuggled up in my crate, so will you please tuck me in every night? I love snuggles and giving kisses, but maybe bigger kids would be best for me because I REALLY get into the snuggles and don't want to accidentally knock a tiny human down. I do NOT love the cold or rainy weather, but I love dressing up in my sweaters and jackets to stay warm! I love butt scratches, tummy rubs, all kinds of adventures, and learning new things.    Speaking of learning new things, I have big smarts in this big noggin of mine! I pick up on new tricks super fast and already know how to sit, lay down, shake, wait, back (to sit in the back seat of the car), cross (the street), and turn left (I'm working on 'right'). I am great at food puzzles, and especially love my snuffle mat. I am crate trained and super polite on my leash when we're out for walks. I even know how to use agility equipment and am learning how to use a doggy treadmill. My recent record is 13 MPH!   My big farts are not so bad if I use a puzzle feeder, because then I don't eat so fast. It's this stubby, snorty nose of mine, I can't help but take in extra air.   There are a few things I don't love, mostly kitties (I want to eat them) and other dogs (they scare me). I take a cheap, daily anxiety medication (cost is under $10/mo) which helps me be more comfortable and my foster family has done a TON of training with me. They are sponsoring a private training session for whoever adopts me, to set me up for success in my new home!    Also, because I have such big smarts I take some things as a personal challenge. Crates and fences, for example. I think they are puzzles to be solved! I need a beefier crate than most dogs and a solid plan to keep me in the yard if I'm off-leash, because if that fence isn't solid like Mount Everest I am outtie! But I don't chew on or damage things in the house, don't worry about that.    I've been waiting for a home of my very own for far too long! So if you're looking for a Very Good Boy who you can have a lot of fun with, please reach out and ask for me, Slim Jim aka Bubba aka Bubby aka Slimbo aka Rambo.         Approximate DOB: 2021 Foster Home Location: Madison    If you are interested in adopting one of our wonderful dogs, you can apply on our website: https://forms.gle/MGakwmFh92UiK9iM6     Please allow several days for us to process your application. We are a small, all-volunteer group and we are doing our best to work quickly! After the application is processed we will make arrangements for you to meet the dog that interest you. All of our dogs are raised in our homes and live with us until they are adopted. They live with us as part of our families so we know them very well and we can help you find your perfect dog!     Our adoption fees:  Adults (up to 7 years): $275 Seniors (8 years and up): $200     All dogs are spayed or neutered, dewormed, vaccinated for rabies, bordatella and distemper, tested for heartworm and microchipped.February 21, 2024, 8:11 pm
