Milo

Gender:  Male
Breed: Feist
Age: 1 year old
Rehoming fee: $50 will include toys, treats and bed.

Why do you need to re-home your pet? Milo is a sweetheart, very loving and affectionate. He is also extremely rambunctious and energetic, and is always ready to run around and play. He does settle down if you’re home with him for a while and lay in your lap or next to you. We’ve taken Milo to training classes, and he has learned commands like sit and lay down, as well as come. He is eager to please which is very nice, but does have a short attention span. The reason we have decided we cannot keep him anymore is because he has extreme separation anxiety and hates being left alone, even though we have another dog to keep him company. If left out, he is destructive and finds anything to get into, he also can jump extremely high on countertops to take food or other things down. We began crating him and he has started knocking over his crate and pushing the bottom out and in some cases makes it so he can undo the latch and set himself free. Milo should be with people that are able to stay home with him as much as possible (he really is an angel when you’re home with him) or if you have a fenced in yard and can let him stay outside all day to play or go in and out as he pleases.

Where did you get your animal and how long have you had him/her? We adopted him from FVHS through the Green Bay PetSmart.

Is your dog spayed or neutered? Yes. 

What are two favorite things about your animal? He is so affectionate and loving, he loves to lick and love anyone whether it be people, dogs or our guinea pigs. He deserves so much love and affection in return, and the time we cannot devote to him to calm him down.

Does your animal live with other animals? If yes, please list age, gender, and breed and how they act around one another: Yes, a 1 year old terrier mix. Milo loves our other dog, he is a bit larger than her (he is 18 pounds and she is 10), but he’s like her big brother and licks and grooms her and plays and rough-houses with her, but is so gentle and never tries to actually nip or bite at her. We also have two guinea pigs, and he loves them too, he just wants to lick and cuddle with them.

Does your animal live with any children? If yes, please list their ages. No, but he loves kids. Whenever we’re out and kids run over to pet him he absolutely loves the attention and licks them and lets them pet and hold him.

Tell us about your animal’s personality. (likes/dislikes, activity level, special tricks, fears/phobias, etc.): He is energetic and loves exercise and to play, but also loves to snuggle up in your lap or get his belly rubbed. He loves cuddling under the blankets in bed at night and sleeping next to your legs. He is completely potty trained, and will only have an accident if he has been left alone long enough. He can sit, lie down, and come. He is extremely food motivated and will eat and drink until you take it away. Milo really is a great dog, and will give unconditional love to everyone in your family- he just needs to be in a home where someone is at home with him most of the time, or if they can afford to bring him to doggy day care every day-which unfortunately we cannot.

Has your animal ever bitten a person? If yes, please explain: No, he is incredibly gentle even while playing with other dogs. He may growl and bare his teeth if he is chewing on his bone, but he has never even moved to snap or anything like that.

Aries

Gender:  Male
Breed: Black short hair
Age: 2 1/2  years 
Rehoming fee: No

Why do you need to re-home your pet? I am looking to re-home my cat Aries. He is 2 ½ years old.  He is having some behavioral problems, he had a uti and it is now taken care of but it seems he got stuck in his ways at my home. I think he would do better without another dog around, he has currently lived with his sibling for years so he is good with another cat around. He is a little skittish around loud kids and hides until they are gone. Since we got a dog a year ago he has gotten overweight with stress and dog food around. I just do not think this is fair to Aries anymore, he needs a home where he will not have this stress. He will come to you for attention, cuddle next to you for hours when your sleeping, likes to perch high next to the window. Please help me find a home for him!

Where did you get your animal and how long have you had him/her? I got him as a kitten with his sister at the humane society in Green Bay.

Is your cat spayed or neutered? Yes. 

What are two favorite things about your animal? He loves to cuddle next to your while you sleeping. He used to run after a laser like crazy, but since he has gotten a little overweight his activity has lessened. I think this will change when he loses weight and is in an environment that is less stressful.

Does your animal live with other animals? If yes, please list age, gender, and breed and how they act around one. Yes, she lives with 2 other cats and a shih-tzu dog. She gets along with the dog very well and doesn’t mind the other two cats. She doesn’t get into fights with any of them.

Does your animal live with any children? If yes, please list their ages. No, but kids do stop over sometimes. He usually just stays downstairs until the noise quiets.

Tell us about your animal’s personality. (likes/dislikes, activity level, special tricks, fears/phobias, etc.): In the 2 1/2 years I have had him he had two uti’s.

Has your animal ever bitten a person? If yes, please explain: No.

Someone who can give her more time and attention can maybe get her diet under control and get her more exercise by playing with her. Can’t stress the sweetness of this cat enough- so lovable! She purrs as soon as you touch her. There is not much I can think of that she dislikes. Like I said earlier, she could use some exercise. She lies around most of the day.

Lady

Gender:  Female
Breed: Bechon poodle (and other?)
Age: 10-ish years old
Rehoming fee: No

Why do you need to re-home your pet? We do not have enough time for her.  She has to be babysat constantly and even when we are home we are too busy to watch her.  She is an older dog (about 10, we think), we have had her for a little over two years.  She is just not “re-trainable”.  She has accidents constantly even though we take her outside.  If a gate isn’t up she will get into trash, backpacks, clothes anything looking for something and then will pretty much eat everything.  We do feed her the normal two times a day.  I have a second job now so she has to be kenneled all the time, even when I am home because if she goes beyond a gate then she will have an accident.

Where did you get your animal and how long have you had him/her? A lady did not want to take her to the shelter so we took her in.  The lady did NOT tell us about her behavior.

Is your dog spayed or neutered? Yes. 

What are two favorite things about your animal? We walk her but she snorts the entire time, does not seem to like it at all but we do it anyway.  She constantly snorts around the kitchen.  She does snore which gets to be pretty funny.

Does your animal live with other animals? If yes, please list age, gender, and breed and how they act around one another: Yes, a cat that is 10 years old, they ignore each other.

Does your animal live with any children? If yes, please list their ages. Yes, a 15-year-old.

Tell us about your animal’s personality. (likes/dislikes, activity level, special tricks, fears/phobias, etc.): No medical that I know of.  Behavior-she snorts into the trash cans and will consume anything/everything in it, she eats her poop when she goes outside, she has eaten underwear, it seems like once in a while the steps are hard for her to get up but not all the time.  I have tried to correct these behaviors for the last two years and nothing has worked.

Has your animal ever bitten a person? If yes, please explain: She does not bite.  Welcoming dog.

Is your dog spayed or neutered? Yes. 

What are two favorite things about your animal? He loves to snuggle and he’s friendly with everyone he meets. Also, peanut butter and dog treats with blueberries cause diarrhea.

Does your animal live with other animals? If yes, please list age, gender, and breed and how they act around one another. We have another beagle, a 9-year-old female.  When no food is around, they do well together. They walk well together and do fine being outside together. However, when there is food involved, and more recently attention, Jethro will snarl and become physically aggressive towards our female. He does great with other dogs at the dog park, but would do best being an “only dog.”

Does your animal live with any children? If yes, please list their ages. Yes – a 15-year-old. He does very well with children at the dog park and when we’re on walks. He is very tolerant of being carried around and moved around on the couch/bed.

He does well with sit, lay down, leave it and come (when there are no other distractions). He does not know how to play (with balls, tug toys, etc), but loves to be petted and get attention. He shows signs of separation anxiety, and we crate him and give him chew toys and leave the tv on when we go out. Doing this, he does well for 5-6 hours alone. He sometimes has what seem to be nightmares and would snarl at our dog for no apparent reason, then go back and lay down, asleep. We keep him in a larger kennel at night, near my bed, and he doesn’t seem to have the nightmares there.  (He likes to be near people at night). He enjoys car rides, walks and going to the small dog park in Appleton. He’s a great dog, and we hate to give him up, but we can’t have him going after our other dog.

Jordy

Gender:  Male
Breed:  Shiba Inu
Age: 4 years old
Rehoming fee: No

Where did you get your animal and how long have you had him/her? He was the only surviving puppy from his group so they placed him with an older patch of puppies. When he was younger he was very good aggressive with other dogs. It has calmed down since then but we would still prefer a house with no other dogs. Also, his breed is known to be runners so a fenced in yard would probably work best.

Is your dog spayed or neutered? Yes. 

What are two favorite things about your animal? We got Jordy as a puppy from a certified breeder in WI. He is a pure breed Shiba Inu and we have had him for 5 years. He is very playful and once you bond with him he will become very affectionate.

Liberty

Gender:  Female
Breed:  Calico
Age: 9 years old
Rehoming fee:  No

Why do you need to re-home your pet? When we bought our house 3 years ago, we had two cats – Jubilee and Liberty. Unfortunately Jubilee developed a urinary infection that caused her to stop using the litterbox. She instead went anywhere else in the house with carpet. We tried everything our vet had suggested, but in the end she was too set in her ways (even after the infection was cured) and we couldn’t break her habit. She was a bit older (12+), so we very sadly had to bring her into the vet and put her to sleep. As a side effect of all this, Liberty picked up on some of those behaviors. She still uses the litterbox for peeing, but will poop on the areas of the carpet that Jubilee had previously marked. Again, we have met with our vet several times about different solutions for Liberty. As it stands right now, Liberty has to spend most of her time in the unfinished side of our basement. We can really only bring her out when we are home and awake, so she only gets a few hours of time with people each day. After about 2 years of trial and error, we’ve decided that we need to find a new home for Liberty. Ideally a home with mostly hard floors would be best, but we believe she would also do ok in a house that does not already have pet “marked” carpets. We briefly had moved Liberty to a friends house, and Liberty did not have any issues with using the litterbox there. Unfortunately, they had two large dogs (over 130+ lbs each) and she did not do well with the big dogs. She was always hiding from the dogs and really did not seem to be very happy there. She is currently back living with us. I’m hoping that through the Fox Valley Humane Association, we can find her a new loving home. We simply didn’t trust finding people through Craigslist and other anonymous methods of re-homing her. Libby (Liberty) is front-declawed and spayed. She should be up-to-date on all of her shots. If not, we can take care of that before she would go to her new home.

Where did you get your animal and how long have you had him/her? We got her as a kitten from a family friend.

What are two favorite things about your animal? She can be a bit shy at first, but once Libby (Liberty) gets used to someone she is very friendly and loves to cuddle. If she had her way, she’d spend her entire life on someone’s lap. Secondly, she is very loyal. She will always go towards the people she loves the most. Other than the obvious, this is nice for when we have visitors at our house that may not want her to jump on their lap.

Does your animal live with other animals? If yes, please list age, gender, and breed and how they act around one another. Not currently

Does your animal live with any children? If yes, please list their ages. Yes, ages 1, 3, and 7. She generally avoids the younger two kids, but will happily follow my 7yr-old around to be pet.

Tell us about your animal’s personality. (likes/dislikes, activity level, special tricks, fears/phobias, etc.): We have tried a variety of different foods, but she definitely prefers Purina ONE’s “Turkey and Chicken” mix. She does not care for wet food, and has stayed very healthy with the dry food. Like most cats, she likes to have a safe place to curl up and sleep – preferably with a blanket in the sunlight during the day.

Has your animal ever bitten a person? If yes, please explain: No.

Breed:  Domestic short-haired cats
Age: 4.5 – 5 years old
Rehoming fee:  $50.00

Why do you need to re-home your pet? We adopted this sibling pair early this year, however due to our infant son having allergy issues and our older son showing some allergy signs we have sadly decided to re-home them at this time. This is a sibling pair – male (Whiskey) female (Brandy).

What, if any, medical or behavioral concerns does your pet have?  None.

Where did you get your animal and how long have you had him/her? We got the cats at the Door Cty Humane Society and we’ve had them since January, 2016.

Boone

Gender:  Male 
Breed:  Bluetick Coonhound
Age: 3 years old
Rehoming fee:  No

Why do you need to re-home your pet? He is too much for me right now, I’ve been working long hours and he had a lot of built up energy through out the day. He goes for a walk everyday and is taken to the dog park a few times a week. He’s a good and smart dog, he catches on quick. I just feel I am holding him back because he is so energetic and I can’t keep up with him. I just want him in a loving home where he can run around and play all day.

What, if any, medical or behavioral concerns does your pet have? No medical concerns, only behavioral concern is he chews when anxious or left home alone. Doesn’t do it all the time just every once in awhile.

What are two favorite things about your animal? He’s very loveable, loyal and listens great!

Halligan

Gender:  Male 
Breed:  German Shepherd mix
Age: 9 months
Rehoming fee:  No rehoming fee. Halligan will come with his crate and additional supplies

Why do you need to re-home your pet? Halligan needs a new home that can meet his space and socialization needs. He has outgrown the house and yard that I am able to provide for him.

What, if any, medical or behavioral concerns does your pet have?: Halligan has a bit of a sensitive stomach that causes diarrhea when something unfamiliar (people food) is introduced to his diet. He is currently on Blue Buffalo grain free food. The diarrhea resolves quickly once he is given white rice, egg, or white meat chicken. Halligan tends to be overly excited at meal time, we have found it is best to put his kibble in a toy to slow down his eating. He is not food aggressive in the slightest. Halligan’s only behavioral issue is the recent development of a chewing problem. His favorite things to get into seem to be paper products (magazines, newspapers, notebooks) and the occasional shoe. We have been unable to determine why this new behavior has started since he has already lost all of his puppy teeth and has all adult teeth.

What are two favorite things about your animal?: He is incredibly entertaining! He loves to listen to people talk to him, his big floppy ears stand up and he and turns his head from side to side while he tries to understand what you are saying. Its absolutely adorable. Although he is a big dog, he is the best snuggler. He loves to be close to you and will hold your hand with is paw or rest his head on your lap. Halligan also loves to give kisses on request 🙂

Does your animal live with other animals? If yes, please list age, gender, and breed and how they act around one another.: Yes. This will be important for Halligan, and I will not re-home him to a family that does not have another dog. He currently lives with a 2 year old female black lab and its a monkey see monkey do situation. She sits he sits, she smells something, he smells that same something, she runs he runs. He has learned a great deal by simply having the other dog around. I believe he needs that continued socialization in his new home. They play VERY well together. He loves to chase her around the yard, play tug of war, wrestle, and then curl up next to her for a nap. Halligan has also been exposed to numerous other dogs on our daily trips to the dog park in Oshkosh. We have never witnessed any aggressive behavior from him towards another dog.

Does your animal live with any children? If yes, please list their ages.: Halligan does not live with anyone under the age of 15 but has been exposed to the neighborhood children ranging from 2 years old on up. He has never shown any aggressive behavior towards children. Instead he greets them with a wagging tail and smothers them with kisses. He does not quite realize his size yet and has bumped and tripped up younger children while trying to love on them.

Tell us about your animal’s personality. (likes/dislikes, activity level, special tricks, fears/phobias, etc.): He is an incredibly sweet dog with high energy. He is always looking to please and craves your affection and attention. He tends to get bored while in the house (regardless of how many toys are littered on the floor). He loves to be outside chasing and running, so he needs wide open spaces to do so. He also walks great on a leash without dragging you along. Halligan knows basic commands very well (sit, stay, come, shake, lay down) and has taken obedience classes to work on those things. He is a very quiet dog that only barks and whines while playing and wrestling with other dogs. Halligan doesn’t have any major fears – he’ll face off with the vacuum any day. We are very sad to be in this situation, we love this dog very, very much but despite our best efforts to get him to the dog park or for a long walk everyday we cannot meet his energy needs. I am hoping we can find him a great home with lots of wide open space for him to run and play. If you are interested please contact me so we can set up a time to meet and you have the opportunity to interact with this sweetheart.

Sid

Gender:  Male (neutered)
Breed:  Domestic Short-haired
Age: 8
Rehoming fee:  None

Why do you need to re-home your pet?  Family allergies

Where did you get your animal and how long have you had him/her?:  Fox Valley Humane Association

 

Does your animal live with other animals?:  Sid was adopted with his litter mate who passed away earlier this year.  He still resides with a 4 year old golden doodle. He and his brother were inseparable always playing and cuddling together.  Sid plays with the dog although not as often.

Does your animal live with children?:  Yes, our 8 month old.  No concerns with their interaction.  He lets him pet & pull on his hair gently.

 

About your pet:  Since the loss of his brother, without people or other animal interaction he meows more often.  We notice if we don’t actively engage with him the meowing becomes more incessant.  When brushed, petted, or snuggled more regularly he is extremely happy and quiet.

Loves to snuggle & be around other people and pets.  Did is no timid and likes to be where his family is. He needs more attention and/or another cat companion. He’s a typical cat that likes to sleep the majority of the day.  His favorite toys are the laser pointer and cat nip mouse.

MJ

Gender:  Female (spayed)
Breed:  Tabby
Age: 4
Rehoming fee:  None

Why do you need to re-home your pet?  MJ is one of 4 cats in our home. She does not like other cats and we feel like we’ve exhausted all routes to help her get along with the other three, who all get along fine. She’s not happy and has started to be aggressive towards the other cats. I’ve had her since she was a kitten and she was a pretty normal cat up until we combined two households – slept on my bed at night, doesn’t scratch up anything (front declawed), no litter box issues. She’s not a huge fan of dogs but she’s been around small dogs her whole life and doesn’t bother much with them. She’s getting overweight because we’ve had to keep her separated from the other cats (not fair to her but the other cats are now terrified of her).

Where did you get your animal and how long have you had him/her?:  MJ came from an individual whose cat had kittens and I got her at 8 weeks old and have had her for 4 years now.

She’s pretty chill and likes to sleep nearby. She’s cute. Used to be a little bit of a snuggler (on her own terms) and would let the kids lug her around and hug on her.

 

About your pet:  Likes the laser, likes to eat. No special tricks. She used to like to play more and “scratch” on a post (she’s declawed in the front) but lately she’s gotten pretty lazy and would rather sleep.

She sometimes tries to bite hands when someone plays with her (dangly toys) and she has tried to bite us when she was scared by something. Nothing serious or requiring medical treatments. If Jackson Galaxy techniques really work, it’s probably something that could get better if someone has the ability to play with her more and she’s getting exercise.

Rori

Gender:  Female (spayed)

Why do you need to re-home your pet?  Fiance is highly allergic to cats

About your pet:  She was found by a close friend at a young age and I took her in.  She loves to sleep near me and has to touch me in some way. Rori also loves to chase toys and pounce on them 🙂  She lived with my parents for a while and they have a 10 year old golden retriever. They ignored each other and were fine.  If the dog likes to chase cats then it will not be a good mix.

Rori does not like to be picked up much, but does cuddle all the time.  She is pretty laid back but does cry from time to time because she was attention :).  She is fine with kids as long as they do not touch her (she just hissed then). She will normally just go hide. She loves been scratch by her neck 🙂
