    Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Hi there! My name is Lucky and boy am I happy to meet you. You can probably tell by my looks alone, but I'm youthful 2 year old, beagle mix who is ready to become your best friend! I really like to be included in everything you do... checking the mail? I'd love to stretch my legs and tag along. Netflix and chill on the couch? Sign me up! Car ride? Yippee! Let's go already. I love my best friends so much that I don't like to be left alone. I've been told I'll be ok and that I can survive for a few hours by myself, but I get lonely and anxious. The staff and awesome volunteers at UPAWS recognized this, so they are working on teaching me that it is ok to be alone, but it's taking me some time to figure it out. If you have a little patience, I promise I will try real hard to understand. I bet long walks and brain games could help... I'd love to try that with you! The shelter is a lovely place, but it's not the place for me. I'm too stressed out here in the kennels and I need a new pal to bond with. I've been diagnosed with seizures, so I need a foster (or forever) home that understands that I'm a little special. The doctors have been awesome at helping me to feel good- so in order to stay healthy they have given me medicine that I need three times daily. Could you help me with that? I'd like to share my home with older respectful children and I may be able to tolerate sharing a home with a cat... but it has to be the right cat and I have to be introduced the right way. I don't want to share my home with another dog. If you can't tell- I want all of your love to myself! Do you think we could get along? If you can help give me the love that I long for, call the staff at 906-475-6661 or stop by the shelter to meet me. I'd love to sleep over at your place tonight! WEBSITE: www.upaws.org

    Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Meet our newest office doggy commander-in-“Chief”. We recognized that Chief is a people “person” more than a dog “person”, so we’ve given him a very important task away from the kennels during his stay at UPAWS… He is now in charge of brining smiles to our office staff and greeting visitors with gusto. If you step past our office door your sure to be met with his wide, silly, smile and a very happy tail wag. If your lucky you might even be gifted a toy to toss around with him too! Chief has shown us that he is a polite boy and while he is in the office he settles very well and enjoys snoozing on a nice soft bed while all of his people pals work. The best part of having Chief share our office is that he knows when to recognize that it is time for a break! He will happily bring over a toy, or a tug rope, for a quick game to keep your spirits up. After playing for a couple of minutes, he is happy to settle down again. We love this boy and we are sure that you will too! Chief wants to be an only furchild, but he may enjoy sharing his home with older respectful children (because of his exuberance for play- he may be too much for very young children). If you have questions about Chief, or if you think he may be a great addition to your family, please call our staff at 906-475-6661. Adoption Sponsorship from Tinos Bar and Pizza of Negaunee. Also from Michael Zakosek. FEE-WAIVED rate. WEBSITE: www.upaws.org

    Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) I don't how to describe Bruce in a way that will garner the interest he deserves. I've fostered Bruce for three months now and it has been an absolute pleasure. Bruce is a smart, sweet, fun, loving, and loyal dog. He makes me smile and laugh every day. I cannot keep Bruce at this time, but I want to help him find his forever home. When I met Bruce we weren't sure if he would welcome guests into my home, but he now welcomes company with ease. Bruce can be a frustrated greeter with some dogs, but recently he has been walking by other dogs and minding his own business like a champ. He is eager to please and is a very good boy. If you want to meet Bruce you can arrange to meet him just about anywhere as he is part of the Adoption Ambassador program. Because I've known Bruce for a good while now I can answer any questions you might have about him so you will know if he is the right dog for your family. Bruce will always have a place in my heart and I know he will find one in yours too. Call 475-6661 to set up a time to meet Bruce today. Sincerely, Bruce's Foster Mom WEBSITE: www.upaws.org
