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 SWEAT GLANDS IN BETWEEN THEIR PAWS.
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.
TOUCH IS THE FIRST SENSE THE DOG DEVELOPS. THE ENTIRE BODY, INCLUDING THE PAWS, IS COVERED WITH TOUCH-SENSITIVE NERVE ENDINGS
IT IS MUCH EASIER FOR DOG TO LEARN SPOKEN COMMANDS IF THEY ARE GIVEN IN CONJUNCTION WITH HAND SIGNALS OR GESTURES.
PETTING DOGS IS PROVEN TO LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE OF DOG OWNERS.
Brindle is a 2 year old Plott Hound mix. He came to our shelter as a stray. He is up to date on all his shots and neutered. He is an energetic boy who loves to play and have fun.
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.
Eili is a 4 year old neutered black lab male. He would be best in a home with older children and female spayed dogs. He has been at our shelter since April 2015. We would love for him to be in a furever home.
(ADOPTED BY HIS FOSTER PARENTS!!)
Petey is a fun-loving, full of energy boy. He is a pitbull, so he would need to go to a home outside of the city of Antigo. Petey loves to run and play and just have fun.
Lonestar is a neutered English Setter about 3 or 4 years old. He is a beautiful boy who is looking for his new forever home.
Tiberius is a neutered Pit Bull that is about 1 years old. He is a sweet and goofy boy who has a lot of energy. He would have to go into a home withn 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.
Help us provide long lives, full of love, to these animals.
