    Kairo

    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) Meet Kairo! He may look big and tough, but he is such an amazing, sweet and affectionate dog - and we all think he is beautiful! He has quite a past life, he originally came from Puerto Rico and was rescued by a dog rescue in Maine - from there he was adopted by a kind person. Sadly, his former owner changed jobs and that required that she travel a lot. She loved Kairo so very much, but she just felt it was not fair to have him sit in a kennel in hotels rooms. She wanted more for him, a family to be with him. Kairo is a special boy who is very intelligent. He has a great heart and is very focused! He walks like a breeze on leash, takes treats nicely, and is respectful. He has had experience with other dogs - however it is best that they are more submissive. He loves attention and if he could be, he would love to be by your side 24/7. The biggest challenge in a home will be ensuring that his new family understands that Kairo has special needs as he is deaf. He will need to find a person or a family who can make accommodations for him while loving him just as he is. Although it was once believed that deaf dogs could not be trained, many people that love and care for them say deaf dog training isn't difficult. Kairo knows some hand signals, and new owner will benefit learning to use hand signals instead of verbal commands. But please don't feel sorry for Kairo, he is a fantastic dog who is just like any other dog, he just can't hear so he depends more on sight and smell. Dogs experience the world through their nose first, then eyes, then ears. Communicating with a deaf dog and learning their language will require time and patience and consistency, however it is a wonderful bonding experience. Kairo is unsure when people come and look at him in his UPAWS kennel room, he barks and doesn't show very well. Please don't let that deter you from meeting him as he is a wonderful outside of his kennel. Kairo would love a home with an active person who can continue to help him build his confidence and feel safe in the world and loved. Pet Care & Sponsorship for Kairo in honor of Spread Goodness Day! Thank you to the office staff of Stang Decision Systems. WEBSITE: .upaws

    Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Hi! Benjamin is my name, and I'm looking forward to finding a lifelong home with people who love and respect me for who I am. I am 3-years-old and a medium sized rat terrier mix. I'm a unsure and nervous in new situations and with new people. Once I'm feeling safe and secure in my new home, I'll love you like no other. Getting to that point might require some patience and understanding on your part, though. I long for a home with older respectful children 12 + and one that will not push me when I am worried. Once I know and trust you, my personality comes shining through and I'm a happy-go-lucky boy! I LOVE to play ball, LOVE to sit on laps and love my walks. Can you please come out to UPAWS and meet me. Please look past my initial timidness and give me a chance at a new wonderful life. I'll pay your kindness back with loyalty and unconditional love. I can live with: Cats: Yes - most likely - may be timid Dogs: Yes - bring dog to meet Kids: 12+ WEBSITE: .upaws

    Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) This lovely lady is Maggie! Maggie thrives in a setting with people of all ages...she cannot get enough of them! She is very intelligent and in her previous home she learned things very easily, including sitting by the door to let you know when she has to go potty. And did you say water? Because this girl LOVES water as much as she enjoys hikes in the woods and playing fetch. She enjoys being your shadow and best friend and would love it if you shared your bed with her at night.

    Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Sometimes walls get built and trust gets lost in the transition of being rehomed. That's the case with Chief. Chief came into UPAWS a few months ago a very happy, go-lucky, great with everyone and everything, but during the rehoming process he became very unsure of himself and has lost the confidence causing him to be defensive and unsure around new people. Once he knows you, he turns into that extremely happy, loving, and playful dog we all know he can be. He loves playing fetch and running around the pen playing keep-away. If you have a patient, understanding, and quieter home - please consider enquiring about Chief. I can live with: Dogs: Yes Cats: Possible - Lived successfully in the past Kids: No WEBSITE: .upaws

    Posted Breed: Cardigan Welsh Corgi / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) About Yahtzee Yahtzee would do well in a home with kind patient people who can give him the time he needs to become the loving companion he seems to want to be. He's definitely smart and we think would really enjoy learning more as long as it's done with force free positive reinforcement training. Quiet adult home and only pet please. If you would like to know more about this fella, please call UPAWS to inquire. (906)475-6661 WEBSITE: .upaws
