  • Mutt Dog For Adoption in Negaunee, MI, USA

    Arya

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Arya is a very energetic dog. She loves to play fetch and run. She is a very loyal girl, but is skeptical of new people and other dogs at first, but generally warms up to them shortly after an appropriate meet. she requires daily exercise, which means she would be best suited with a very active family, and probably one without kids until she calms down a bit. She is in need of some quality training, as her attention span is short, and she tends to have a mind of her own. If you are looking for a sweet dog, with a big personality, that you can train how you want, consider meeting Arya today! Arya is in our Home2Home program, so you can contact her owner Lucas via email at luchristnmu.edu, or give him a call at 906-360-5853. WEBSITE: .upaws

    Louie

    rescue
    Breed: Brittany
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Brittany (medium coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Louie is a 1 year old, neutered male purebred Brittany Spaniel. He is a very active puppy who needs a home where he can RUN (not just walk) a lot!! If he doesn't get enough exercise, he will take to chewing on your things! He will be an indoor house dog only, living outside is not an option for him. He sure loves his people and cuddles with me all night every night. Louie likes to give hugs and kisses and he will curl up on your lap like a cat. He is still learning his manners, so kids over 10 years old would be ideal. He is crate trained and is used to being crated for up to four hours a day. Louie loves to play with other dogs, but he does chase cats. He loves playing with squeakie toys and chewing on deer antlers. He has done well on his e-collar and responds to "Louie, here!", therefore, I ask you keep his name as he knows it well and I have used it in his training. He loves learning new things, so a home that is willing to extend his training of tricks and manners would be great. He's not a big fan of wet paws or the cold weather, so I got him a vest to wear for the cold days when he shivers and he really enjoys it. Louie is pretty decent with his potty habits, but still has an accident from time to time in the house. After a big family change (resulting in me being the only adult), I simply cannot give him the running exercise he needs. I want him to have the chance to have a better home than I can provide and if I cannot find him a better home, he will stay with me. I love him very dearly-- he's my baby boy. If anything were to ever not work with his new home, I would take him back. He is currently eating Purina One Smartblends chicken & rice and he currently receives 1 cup 3x a day. I can include his crate, blanket, bowns, leash, vet & AKC paperwork, and favorite toys. If you think you can give my Louie a better life and the exercise he requires, please feel free to contact me, and I am located in Ishpeming. His rehoming fee is $250. Louie is not at UPAWS, he is being privately rehomed through our Home2Home program. If you think you would be a good fit or have any questions about him, you can reach Rachel at 952-486-0680 or by email at rlshellumgmail WEBSITE: .upaws

She would make the perfect companion on long walks, or just lounging around the yard on a sunny afternoon.

    Posted Breed: Coonhound (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Hounds!! UPAWS has hounds galore! Six hounds were surrendered after their owner passed away. They are silly, happy, sniffing (and sniffing), lovable hound dogs with great temperaments. Hound Dogs are unique. While Hound Dog characteristics may vary more than with other groups, in some respects they are very distinctive. For instance, Hound Dogs are the only breed of dog that bays! Still frequently used by hunters, the hound dog will make nice house pets with their generally good temperament. Come out to UPAWs and meet the lovable Hounds! Ask to meet them outside of the kennels (as we are VERY full of dogs and the kennels are pretty noisy.) Questions? Call us at 906-475-6661 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Buck is a handsome, energetic 3 year old American English Coonhound! He is looking for an active home that will give him plenty of exercise and mental stimulation to keep him happy and healthy. Buck is your typical, all-American hound who bays with excitement and has a natural love for an outdoor adventure. He would love to spend his days with long hikes in the morning, a nice bone as an afternoon snack, and a spot on a nice dog bed or the couch in the evenings! He gets along with some dogs, so bring your dog for a meet in the pen to see if they can be friends. if you have any questions, please give us a call at 906-475-6661. WEBSITE: .upaws

Cody is a 5 year old, big handsome Plott hound sporting a dashing brindle coat. Cody has a simple mind and enjoys the simpler things in life such as smelling the flowers and leaves and taking in the sun on a nice warm day. He would greatly benefit from an active person to get him out everyday to check out the new sites and smells that the days bring. Because Cody can be a high-strung typical hound at times, a home with teenagers on up is recommended. He gets along with some dogs more than others (medium sized dogs on up please!), please bring your dog for a meet and greet. Could you be the home Cody has been dreaming of?

    Posted Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Hello, Hawk my name. Nice to meet you! I'm 5 years old and I worked hard all my life. Now I would like to live my best-ager-years more relaxed. Even though I'm a Treeing Walker Coonhound I am more on the chill side and pretty quiet. I love a good hike, but even more do I like my ears rubbed, my chest rubbed and a butt scratch. Heck, all cuddles are highly appreciated! I bet I would also love relaxing on the couch with you. I'm ok with other dogs and don't seem to mind cats, so bring your dog for a butt sniff. Maybe we'll become best friends forever! Come to UPAWS and meet me! WEBSITE: .upaws

    Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Talk about an attention-getter! Nahla is a gorgeous and striking dog. And there's such a loyalty there - such a desire to find someone and look after them and devote herself entirely to them. She would be a faithful companion to the extreme! Born in 2012, she likes to play, run, and have lots of fun. She's a terrific, easy leash walker, and has so much fun on hikes and play dates. Nahla is recommended for older respectful kids, and have a meet and greet with your doggy. She just needs that little extra time to get used to her new family. She is looking for someone to snuggle with and go on car rides down the country road, with the scent of Fall flouting through the open windows. In closing, Nahla is a staff favorite - we all adore this happy, sweet girl. And Nahla adores us! Come out to meet this little love and see why she is our favorite! Deb's Dog of the Month - sponsored in memory of Deb Danielson. Also pet sponsorship from a Nahla lover. Sponsored adoption rate $50. WEBSITE: .upaws

    Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Take one look at Samson and it'll be impossible not to smile from ear to ear. This is a big 8-month-old peppy Pibble youngster with a friendly, goofy personality. He'd fit best in an active, attentive household with patient adult only pet parents and as the only pet. He would love a large fenced back yard to play in! We'd love for Samson to find a home that will work with his unbridled enthusiasm! This fellow has lots of energy and he sure would love to channel it with you doing positive mental and physical activity. If you think you would be a good match, head on up to meet Samson today!

    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 thomemdcomcast or by phone at (906)-281-5373. Nico has a rehoming fee of $100. WEBSITE: .upaws
