Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Duke likes to be the leader and is quite intelligent, independent, confident and clever. He prefers making his own decisions but will listen to you if you make a good case. He longs to be partners in any adventure. Treat Duke like one and you'll both live happily ever after. Duke is super smart and knows many commands such as sit, lay, shake, roll over, high-five. He gets along with some dogs over others (submissive medium size dogs tend to be best) so bring your dog along for a meet and greet. He will not be placed with cats or small animals. Duke longs for a new owner who will continue to work with him with positive methods - Duke has so much potential for the right person or family. He would thrive as an only pet ideally, with a person or family who is willing to continue him training and take him on some adventures. Duke has been fully sponsored for his adoption fee by U.P. General Contracting. Fully paid rate. WEBSITE: www.upaws.org

We currently do not have detailed information for this breed. If you would like to provide such information, you can do it here:

Request to Add a New Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Harley loves all people and loves kids! He is happy cuddling and being lazy all day, but is also down to go for a nice, long walk. He likes playing tug of war, loves his stuffed animals, and likes enriching puzzle games. He does well with housetraining and will not wake you up in the middle of the night to go potty. Harley knows a few commands such as sit, stay, lay down, time for bed (go to kennel), come, and play dead. He is also kennel trained! Harley will be your number one fan when you come in the door after a long day at work. He loves giving kisses and leaning into you for attention, and will be happy to accompany you on the couch on lazy days. He is very smart and very intuitive to your feelings, if you're feeling sad he will stay by your side. Harley is not socialized with other animals, so he would do best with no other animals. Harley is not at UPAWS, he is being rehomed by his owner through our Home2Home program! If you think Harley will be a good fit for your home, you would like to meet him, or you would like to learn more about him, please call Breana at 248-931-2990, or you can reach her by email at BreShott@aol.com.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) We are heartbroken. Nico has been our best buddy for the last 3 years, and although we love him very much, we feel that it is best for our family to find him a new loving home. He is showing signs of anxiety around our baby, especially as she is finding her voice and starting to move. He has done okay with her so far, but will do best in a home without other pets or young children, and with an owner who can continue to work on his behavior. We would prefer to find him an experienced dog owner. Nico is hilarious, athletic, loving, snuggly, and sometimes full of mischief. He needs exercise and consistent training to be on his best behavior. He is still not great with other dogs (besides ones he knows), but has improved significantly with training and the familiarity of routine. We have worked with Sue Kapla of Canine Consultants, who has helped us tremendously, and we are willing to connect Nico's new owners with Sue to continue his training. Nico is not currently at UPAWS, he is being rehomed through our Home2Home program! If you are interested in hearing more about Nico please contact Matt by email at thomemd@comcast.net or by phone at (906)-281-5373. Nico has a rehoming fee of $100. WEBSITE: www.upaws.org

      Tank

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) This big boy is a very outgoing and his goofy puppy-like antics will keep you entertained. He is only 10-months-old but large and muscular. He has a strong personality and a free spirit and would do best in a home with someone that has had experience with positive training methods with dogs. So far, he appears interested in other dogs, but he's just very overwhelming so unless you have a well-structured home life, for the average person, we would say let's let him be the only dog in the home along with teenagers age on up. He's going to need your undivided attention for now. With his dreamy eyes and his handsome, beefy body.... you and Tank are bound to turn heads. WEBSITE: www.upaws.org

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Ollie is a delightful fella who thrives for love and attention. He is a real good dog who is house-trained, walks pretty well on leash and loves hikes, walks and outdoors (he has plenty of spark even though he is a senior). His best thing though is cuddling with his people pals. He likes older respectful kids and is OK with most dogs (please bring your dog to meet any dog you may be interested in to make sure they can get along). Ollie is a funny, charming guy who deserve a second chance at a loving home. Ask to meet Ollie outside of the kennels as the kennel setting makes him anxious with all the dogs and comings and goings. Open your heart and consider giving Ollie a chance, come to UPAWS and meet him today. His adoption fee is fully paid for by a Innovation Grant from Maddie's Fund to support UPAWS Golden Paws Program. Fee paid rate ($0). WEBSITE: www.upaws.org

      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) My name is Leo! I am a wonderful , happy boy however I do have a special trait, I am deaf. Because of this, my former mom had been teaching me American sign language, which I am learning very well. Although I am deaf, I love when people talk to me! Because of my hearing loss, I don't really enjoy busy kids or puppies as they are hard to keep track of. My former mom had a bed for me upstairs and downstairs, but I would rather spend my time cuddling with my people. I would like to live in a home with other dog friends because when I used to go to my Grandma's, she has two dogs that I used to love to play with. I am very curious and love to follow the dogs and people around to see what they are up to. I love dog toys, and I love them so much sometimes I shred them! Don't worry, I don't eat the stuffing or small parts! I love to cuddle and go for long walks around the town, along with the beach year around. While on my hikes, I have a collar that vibrates to tell me it's time to go back to my people. I want a person that's home more and continue to help me learn commands in sign language! It's fun to do things and learn together - I will be a loyal and devoted pal if you give me a chance! Leo will need to be placed in a home with a dog buddy as he does best with other dogs!! Bring your dog to meet him in our play yard! Call us at 906-475-6661 to learn more about this wonderful boy! WEBSITE: www.upaws.org
