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

PETTING DOGS IS PROVEN TO LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE OF DOG OWNERS.

My name is Jo. I'm a cute little girl who would love to be in a home. I am a Collie/Walker/Coonhound mix and I'm about 5 months old. I'm pretty shy, but I will warm up to you and give you all kinds of puppy kisses. I have made some doggy friends here at the shelter, but what I would really like is to have a human friend too.

Hi everyone! My name is Sierra and I am a Husky mix. I'm about 5 years of age. I'm looking for a country home with a LARGE fenced in yard, a really TALL fence too, please, because I can jump fences. I have a lot of energy so I would need someone who is willing to take time with me and play with me, A LOT. Seeing, that I am a "Husky" type breed, I would have to go into a home with someone who is familiar with my breed or willing to learn.
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.
My name is Bubba and I'm a handsome boy. I came to the shelter as a stray and owners never came to get me. So, the wonderful people here at the shelter took me in, got me my shots and... they got me groomed!!! Aren't I handsome?? I was so matted when I came in, and boy did it feel good to get a bath and a haircut. Come and take me home with you!!!
Timber is a beautiful Alaskan Husky mix. She is about 6 years old and spayed. She is very shy at first but she will warm up to you once she gets to know you. She would need a lot of patience and understanding of her breed. Timber would be best as the only dog in your home.

Hello darlings. My name is Patsy and I am a 3 year old Bulldog mix. I have a lot of energy, which is how I can keep my girlish figure. I would simply adore it if someone would take me home and be my always and forever partner.
Howdy partners!! My name is Waylon, and I am a Pitbull/Lab mix. I'm a goofy boy who has a bit of energy. I love my treats and I love going for walks. And this snow stuff we have right now, it's pretty cool (no pun intended ;) ). I'm looking for my new forever home outside the city of Antigo, all because I have pitbull in me. So, if you're looking for a great friend, I'm your guy!
