She's a little picky about what dogs she can call friends but in general she's a friendly dog that is very good with people and of course enjoys her time outdoors.


SISU is a 10 year old neutered husky mix who came to us when his owner passed away. He's a special boy looking for a special home. He's a gentle giant and just wants to be everyone's friend, even cats and most other dogs! Sisu lived mainly outside his entire life, so he has been working very hard at one of our staff members houses learning inside manners and is doing great! He came to us with an injury to his knee and a large mass behind his front leg making it painful and extremely hard for him to walk. His pain is managed with a prescription and a series of injections that the vet has prescribed. Despite everything life's thrown at him, Sisu is a sweet, affectionate, loving, playful boy who deserves the world and more.

KAZ is a 4 yr old neutered male Husky mix that was recently surrendered. He is a strong dog who would do well in an active home as he loves walks and gets bored easily.

BELLA is a 4 year old spayed female Lab/Husky mix that was surrendered.  She's a sweet girl that's a little nervous when meeting new people and takes time to warm up. She doesn’t show well in her kennel; so if you come to meet her ask a staff member to take her out for you. She gets along with male dogs but is a bit dominant with most females. She loves her daily walks and does great on the leash! 


RODNEY is a 7 month old neutered male Lab mix that was recently found stray in the Watersmeet area. He's a friendly, energetic dog that is eager to please. He likes going for walks and is learning pretty well his basic obedience and leash skills.

 STORM is a 5 year old neutered male German Shorthair mix. He is a big, strong guy who also happens to be quite the looker. He needs a strong, confident owner who can keep him up with his training from our prison program, which he successfully completed! Storm has had a few bumps along the way, (which will be thoroughly disclosed to potential adopters) and must be adopted outside Gogebic county. He also needs to be the only pet in the home. Storm is a big, smart, goofy guy once he loosens up, and he would love a huge yard to gallop in!



JOSIE is a 1 year old spayed female Bluetick Hound mix that was recently surrendered. She is a friendly, energetic girl that lived with other dogs and older kids. She needs some additional leash training and is making progress on her basic obideience commands.


TROOPER is a 9 year old neutered male Retriever mix that was recently surrendered. He unfortunately lived most of his life outdoors so he needs some positive socialization to bring out his best. He is generally a sweet, quiet dog that would prefer to be in a one-dog household so he can get the attention and training he deserves. He is not accustomed to living with young kids so a household without kids is preferred.


ADONNIS is a 4 year old neutered male St. Bernard mix. This fun lovin’ guy is a big guy at 70 pounds! He came to the shelter with his friend, FREEDOM. He gets along very well with her but does take a little while to get used to other new dogs. This guy loves his outside time, and going for walks. He can be a little strong so could use a little work on his leash skills. He is very lovable and sometimes forgets how big he is and tries to be a lapdog! He may do best without small children, just because he may knock them over.


FREEDOM is a 3 year old spayed female pit bull mix. This girl is a very sweet, gentle lady who came to us with her friend ADONNIS. She seems to get along fine with other dogs and is ok with cats too! She is house trained and loves to cuddle! She walks well on the leash and enjoys going for walks.
