Story
4-year-old Clyde is described as truly amazing by his foster mom. Despite his past, he is thriving and enjoying life to the fullest. His simple desires include a bowl of food, water, a comfortable bed, and belly rubs. He's been trained to wait patiently for his meals and to go outside only when given the signal. Although he still struggles with excitement-induced jumping, he's making progress. Notably, he recently greeted his foster dad by sitting instead of jumping, albeit wiggling with excitement. Clyde's gentle nature shines through when interacting with children, instinctively understanding the need to be delicate around them. He even follows commands from a two-year-old, earning treats and laughter in return. Remarkably, he shows no interest in chasing animals while indoors and is learning to respond to recall commands outdoors without pulling on his lead. However, his immense strength warrants caution around those who may not be able to handle it. In various situations, Clyde displays impeccable behavior, from resisting the temptation of food left unattended to interacting peacefully with other dogs. He's particularly fond of playing with his owner's son's dog and even took a nap on her bed. Despite never being confined to the crate provided, Clyde stays contentedly behind a baby gate when left alone. He shows no interest in the items in the spare room, demonstrating his exceptional demeanor. Overall, Clyde's foster mom struggles to fully articulate just how remarkable he truly is, emphasizing his love for life and those who love him in return.

Story
Meet Apollo, a 2-year-old Pitbull Terrier Mix with a story shrouded in mystery. Rescued from Madacc, her past remains a puzzle, but her vibrant personality shines through. Apollo is a ball of energy, always eager for adventure and exploration. She'll gladly join you for long walks or a game of fetch in the yard, bringing boundless enthusiasm to everything she does. And when it's time to wind down, there's nothing she loves more than snuggling up close for some quality cuddle time. But Apollo isn't without her quirks. She can be reactive around other dogs and cats, a trait that will require patience and training to overcome. She's a smart cookie though, and with the right guidance, she's sure to make progress. She's is looking for a special someone who can match her energy levels and provide the time and attention she craves. A fenced yard would be a bonus, giving her space to roam and explore safely.

Story
·Intake Reason: Transfer from MADACC·Weight: Known with: ·Cats: Unknown ·Dogs: Unknown ·Kids: Unknown ·Personality: ActiveGreetings, my name is Freya; that name means ‘lady' and I am hoping to be your precious little lady. When I was a young and crazy pup, I came to WCHS from MADACC (Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission) where I was a stray. I was adopted and lived with a person for about 6 months. There were a couple other pooches in my home and we got along fine and had fun when food or goodies like bones were not around. But if we were in the same room during mealtime, tensions got high and I felt I had to guard my goods. In order to keep peace in the house, my people decided it was best for me to come back to WCHS to find a home that might be a better fit for me. I am fine sharing valuable resources with people, just not other canines; this girl simply appreciates a little privacy when I am eating. I am a friendly and affectionate gal who may just fit on your lap since I weigh only 58 pounds; who wouldn't love extended snuggle sessions. In my previous home I was comfortable in a crate when I was alone so that I did not have to manage the whole house by myself; I could rest and relax in my comfy cozy little den. At bedtime, though, I got to share the bed with my person and that was fabulous. In my previous home I never had to develop a signal to let my person know I had to go outside because I was on a consistent and regular schedule. I have good house-training skills but still think it would be wise to give me plenty of opportunities to get outside until I understand the household routine; maybe I could even work on a nifty signal. I am an active lass who enjoys playing fetch and had a great time romping in my fenced yard. I do like to play with other pooches (as long as there is no food around); my mates do need to understand that I am a high-octane rough player who likes to have fun. I love car rides, Jollyballs and kiddie pools to splash around in on warm summer days. I am smart and like to learn; I already know the cues for ‘sit', ‘stay', ‘place/bed' and ‘gentle'. It would be lovely if we could take some classes together; perhaps we can practice obedience, rally, nose work, dog parkour or fun canine sports. I hope you stop by to make my acquaintance because I would love to meet you and start down the path of life together.#2

Story
Howdy, my name is Dallas and I am a fun-loving guy. I lived with a very nice family most of my life; I had some kids to play with, went to dog parks, had a fenced yard to play in and learned life skills like housetraining; I even lived with a couple kitties and was friendly to them. When I started to protect the furniture from my young masters, it caused some disruption in the home and I came to WCHS to find a new place to live. I was respectful of my person's things and had the luxury of roaming free when I was alone. I must confess that I am not a fan of crates and find them quite confining. At the shelter I am learning to be more comfortable in a crate because I have a soft-sided crate in my kennel that I can go into and out of whenever I want to. When I get to my new home, I would be willing to continue practicing with a crate; maybe you could take the door off one and make it available to me. A cozy blanket and some fun toys might make it inviting such that I could come and go as I please and become more comfortable hanging out in a crate. I am hoping for a calm assertive leader who will set some boundaries in a patient and positive manner because I am a sensitive lad who just needs guidance. A while back I lived with a Lab and also did well with a Ridgeback at my dog sitter's place; I have also been enjoying participating in the playgroups at WCHS. When I am around other pooches I would appreciate if no food or resources like bones are in the area because I prefer to enjoy those things in private. Speaking of eating, I would rather not use metal bowls; I find the racket they can make very unnerving. Perhaps a plastic or ceramic bowl would be an option; I could even enjoy my meals using a foraging mat to make it a fun and mentally engaging activity. In my previous home I had learned to sit by the door and whine when I needed to use the outdoor facilities. When I come into my new home it would be wise for me to have plenty of opportunities to get outside until we learn each other's signals and routines. I have been described as friendly, affectionate, playful and calm; I enjoy a rousing game of tug and think bubbles are wonderfully entertaining. I am a young lad who needs plenty of exercise to stay happy and healthy; I think going for walks is a spectacular way to explore and spend time with my person. Stop by to meet me in person because I think you will agree that I am 74 pounds of stupendous.#1

Story
**Ziba is being adopted out from her foster home, where she's learning sign language! Please call WCHS to set up an appointment if you are interested in meeting with her.**· Intake Reason: surrendered, owner was unable to care forKnown with:· Cats: lived with 2 cats, and liked to play with them· Dogs: went to dog parks previously, does well in WCHS playgroups; is in foster with multiple dogs· Kids: exposed to various ages· Personality: AffectionateGreetings, my name is Ziba and I am 40-pounds of special. My name means ‘beautiful' and I think that is very fitting because I am enchanting. My world is very quiet because I am deaf. Since I cannot hear commands, people have been using hand signals to communicate with me; I know the signal for ‘sit' and ‘good girl'. Because I could not hear you calling after me, I will be counting on you to keep me safe and out of trouble. I know that some folks who have a deaf pooch in the family use a vibration collar (no shock, please) to let the dog know you want their attention. I also appreciate it when humans do not sneak up on me or surprise me. In my previous home I had the luxury of roaming about freely when I was alone and also got to share my person's bed at night; that was fabulous. When I needed to go outside, I would sit by the door. When I first come into my new home it would be wise to watch me carefully and also give me plenty of opportunities to get outside to use the facilities. I must confess I am still working on becoming 100% when it comes to house-training. Lots of yummy treats and praise should help me develop that skill. I am a tolerant gal but I have a tendency to get overstimulated, so it would be great if we could work on some settle exercises. I am a smart lass and think it is important to keep my brain busy and engaged so I have been happy with all the enrichment I get at the shelter. I do enjoy romping with other dogs and am sort of a rough player but prefer not to share my toys with them; a girl has got to draw the line somewhere. I enjoy car rides and would love to be your sidekick as we go on many adventures together. I am friendly and outgoing but do prefer a slow and polite introduction to folks I do not know. Give me a few minutes and a couple tasty tidbits and soon we will be BFFs. I hope you stop by to meet me in person; I think it is lovely to increase my circle of friends and we could have a magnificent life together.#2
