These are the dogs we have here at the shelter.
You may notice below some dogs it will say "ADOPTION PENDING"This means that dog has one or more applications for his/her adoption. It does not always mean the adoption will go through (denied application, loss of interest, bad fit, ect.) but is there so nobody gets their hopes too high on a dog that might already have found a forever home. Thankyou!
Helpful Hint: Dont forget to check out our "little dogs" page. Anytime we have some smaller breed dogs we will have them on that page. It is located on the right side with the rest of our pages but only opens when you click on "Dogs At The Shelter". Also under our dogs page you will begin to notice the names of each dog. We have started making individual pages for each dog which contains more information and pictures. It is a work in progress so please be patient! Thank you!

DOGS HAVE THREE EYELIDS. THE THIRD LID, CALLED A NICTITATING MEMBRANE OR "HAW". IT KEEPS THE EYE LUBRICATED AND PROTECTED.
A DOG MOST LIKELY INTERPRETS A SMILING PERSON AS BARING THEIR TEETH, WHICH IS AN ACT OF AGGRESSION.
A DOG CAN LOCATE THE SOURCE OF A SOUND IN 1/600 OF A SECOND AND CAN HEAR SOUNDS FOUR TIMES FARTHER AWAY THAN A HUMAN CAN.

Maximus is a neutered Pit Bull mix that is about 3 years old. He is a very handsome boy who has a lot of energy. He would have to go into a home with an individual(s) who are familiar with the breed and who have a large yard for him to play in. He would have to be adopted outside the city of Antigo.
Lucy is a 2 year old Jack Russel Terrier mix. She was surrendered back to our shelter because her owner was moving and unfortunately couldn't take her with. She is a sweet girl who could use someone who has the time to finish training her. She loves to run and play so she would need a big yard to play in.
