  • Jack Russell Terrier Dog For Adoption in Negaunee, MI, USA

    Buster JR

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Jack Russell Terrier
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Buster Jr. is a special little boy! Buster would love a home that can keep him active, exercised and with some daily fun. Buster would also do best in a low-traffic home without children, as an only dog (cats do not seem to bother him), and an owner that is interested in working with Buster on positive training. Buster can be over-stimulated easily and doesn't understand how to reactive to those feelings. So he is working on being comfortable in those situation. He is a dog that takes a long time to trust. But Theresa, one of our wonderful caregivers, has made amazing strides with Buster Jr. To learn more about Buster's behavior and needs please contact UPAWS at 475-6661. We'd love to talk to you about Buster Jr.! WEBSITE: www.upaws.org

    Dakota

    Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Dakota can be high energy or mellow. He is very trainable and has a few dogs "skills" already. Crate trained. Self regulated eater. Bathes easily. Behaved for nail clipping. Has light seasonal skin irritation - Benadryl and medicated shampoo help. I have not seen him exposed to cats except at a distance wen he displays high curiosity. He behaves well with children. He does get excited around new dogs and people so you need to be ready for a 75 pound jumping around with excitement for the introduction. Same with new environments, he gets excited and wants to check it all out and once he knows the lay of the land he calm down. Dakota loves walks and anything to do with people or other dogs, scouting for rodents, and just knowing what is going on in the neighborhood. He growls when playing tug of war but he is only playing. He loves tons of attention! The more his "pack" is around, the happier he is. Dakota has lived as only dog but I think he would benefit from living with another dog in a home that is accustom to a stronger high energy dog. He has suffered with separation anxiety and another dog in the home around to keep him company when the people ae not home would be great for him and his anxiety. It takes a long time for him to be OK in a new place completely alone. He will whine and cry loudly when he is left alone in a new place until he is used to it. A home with a decent size yard would be appropriate. Email Charles at bulinski1987@gmail.com or phone him at (231)-445-5596 if you are interested in meeting Dakota. WEBSITE: www.upaws.org

Leyna is longing to find find a new home where she can be loved and spoiled for the rest of her days. She appears to get along with other most other respectful canines and people. What she would love most is a new loving companion that she can devote herself to. Can you be the retirement home that Leyna longs for? With Leyna's age, she does have some medications that are necessary to keep her happy and healthy. UPAWS will help to cover the cost of these medications during the transition to her new home though our "Extra Special Pets for Extra Special People" grant offered by Lil' Bub's Big Fund for the ASPCA and Maddies Fund. 3 months of Leyna's medication will be offered with her adoption. Leyna is currently in an Adoption Ambassador foster home. You can visit her in her foster home and complete the adoption off site- no need to come to the shelter. How cool is that?! If you would like to meet Leyna please call UPAWS at 906-475-6661 and we will put you in touch with her foster family. WEBSITE: www.upaws.org

    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Are you looking for a dog with superior focus? How about one who is smart enough to learn any puzzle you put in front of him? Are you a bit of a homebody and rather walk a back 40 than on a busy road? If you answered "yes" to these questions, we've got just the dog for you! Meet Austin, a 2 and 1/2 year old Plott hound mix. He's a great dog who just simply prefers someone who will devote and spend a lot of time with him. He can be a active guy who is so smart, he can even get out of wire crate. He just needs an avenue to keep his mind and body busy. Austin has a lot of love to give; he just can't contain himself, he blurts with joy. He has lived with children, other dogs and got along well. He can not live with cats or small animals however. Austin isn't for everyone but is you you're looking for a running, hiking, or agility partner, he is SO your man. Of course anyone, Austin has a quirk or two...well mostly just one. Anything with wheels drives is way too much for Austin to handle. Austin has been known to bananas when he sees moving vehicles, and he is quite sure he prefers a home where he doesn't have to see many of those. Though he can ride in the car without incident, it certainly isn't his favorite thing - did we mention he is a homebody?! Austin does well walking once he settles in, and he would love endless romps through fields and woods - he just is not a car guy! So this does mean that Austin's new family should have access to an area or place where they can walk him that isn't a frequently travelled road. The country life is best for this fellow. So, overall, if you're looking for a fun dog who will learn endless tricks, puzzles, games, and be a sweet and wonderful pal, look no further than Austin. If you have a place where he can run and play without encountering many moving cars, this sweet, sensitive boy may just be for you! Pet Adoption Sponsorship from a Austin fan.
