Meet the Fetch foster pups available for adoption

We spend time getting to know every one of our pups in order to find them the perfect forever home. Each Fetch dog has their own story to share with the world. Click on a dog to read more about its personality and story. New pups join Fetch weekly so make sure to check back regularly or tune to our Facebook page for updates. Please note that we currently have a wait list for adoption. There's a good chance you may not get the pup you apply for, but we will find a pup that is a great match for your lifestyle. Our adoption process can take up to two months. If you're looking for a dog sooner, we highly recommend that you foster with Fetch, or check out the Dane County Humane Society, Iowa County Humane Society, Green County Humane Society, or any other local Wisconsin shelters - they have many dogs ready and waiting for their forever homes. (Note: If a picture does does not have a link, that means we don't have their bios ready quite yet).

Fetch works with local dog owners to help them re-home their dogs. You can apply for these dogs through the same adoption process as above. Our service is to screen and approve potential homes for surrendering owners, but you will finalize the adoption directly with the surrendering owner. Fetch cannot guarantee the behavior and medical condition of these dogs, but we strive to provide all information that we have on them during the process.

Jack is a 6 year old terrier mix.  He wants to run and play in a fenced in yard for a short time but then he wants to come inside to cuddle.  He shows his love with licks.  Having room for Jack to run at home is important because Jack can be anxious in new situations and with new animals.  Sometimes his anxiety can cause him to react negatively with new dogs and most recently kids - which is why we have to rehome him.  The ideal home for Jack would be one where he is the only pet (cats may be okay - he lives with one now), no kids, and a fenced yard for him to run in - he will likely never be a dog that can go to the dog park.  An experienced dog owner would be beneficial.  Jack is crate trained, house broken, has been to basic manners classes, reactive rover classes, and agility classes.  He is a smart dog and it breaks our heart to have to rehome him.  Jack will go to his new forever home with his crate, leash, easy walk harness, remaining anxiety meds, dog bowls, and toys.

Kip is a 7.5 year old black Labrador Retriever Kip is a wonderful dog. She is sweet and will cuddle up with you on the couch. She will chase (but maybe not bring back!) balls that you throw her over and over again. She is a wonderful running and walking partner. Her dog daycare staff all adore her and she spends most of her days as the "lobby dog" hanging out with them and getting special treats. She is also well-trained and completely housebroken. She knows the following commands: sit, stay, come, lay down, take it, leave it, target, go to your bed and watch me. She would be most happy as the only dog in her home.

Nellie is an absolutely sweet 4 year old Bloodhound/Lab mix who would love to be in a home where she can be the center of your loving attention.  She needs an environment with no small children or other dogs.  She has no experience with cats.  Nellie gets a bit uncomfortable when she is on a leash; therefore, going for walks is not her favorite activity and becomes anxious when she sees other dogs.  If you have a large yard or a lot of land that she can roam safely and play fetch with you, she would be very happy.  She absolutely loves squeaky tennis balls, car rides, and FOOD.  She will basically do anything for a treat which makes her easily trainable. She is house trained, knows basic commands, spayed, and up-to-date on all her shots.  This precious girl is looking for her new favorite person to play fetch with, cuddle with during thunderstorms, and is willing to clean up any food you might drop on the floor!

Piper is a beautiful 3.5 year old terrier/cattle dog mix with a lot of energy. She is an incredibly sweet and affectionate dog and we don't want to let her go, but she doesn't get along with our elderly beagle or our cat. After two years, we've decided that it's not fair to any of them and that Piper deserves a better home where she's the only pet. She loves to play with toys, sticks, and especially balls, just not other animals. Her favorite thing to do is play a long game of fetch followed by a belly rub. She's very aware of her surroundings and will let you know if someone is coming to the door. She has a big appetite but has been maintaining a healthy 25lbs with portion control and scheduled feeding times (which she will remind you of).  Piper is very smart and already knows several tricks including sit, stay, down, high five, shake, and leave it. She's very motivated to learn for a treat or a good butt scratch. She is crate and house trained. She loves walks and does best when wearing a halter. She absolutely loved hiking at Devils Lake and would even slow down on the tougher climbs when we told her "easy". She barked when other dogs were ahead of us on the trail but stopped once we passed them. She loves to snuggle and will insist that you rub her tummy even if it's with your feet. She has been taught to stay off of furniture unless she's invited. Piper needs a family that will take her on long walks or runs and has plenty of energy for fetch and training. Since her experience with children is limited, we suggest she should be in a home with either no children or older children.

Tica  - 5.5 y.o. female, black lab I am fixed and UTD on all shots. I love to play fetch with tennis balls and go for walks. Do you like to run? Me too! I also love belly rubs, cuddles and entertaining. My family is very sad to see me go, but I'm ready to move on. They brought home this crying small human and I just don't know what to think. They don't spend as much time with me anymore and I'm kind of lonely. Will you play with me? Other things you should know about me: • I don't get along with other dogs. Cats are untested. • I'm not recommended to live with small children. They can come and visit though. • Please stay away from my food when I'm eating. I love food and I wait to be (verbally) released to eat! • Speaking of food I have food allergies (chicken, flax). A month+ supply of food from Mounds is $47. • I know many tricks - sit, stay, roll over, back up, lay down, leave it, bed, shake and more. • I'm potty trained and I can be trusted to free-roam the house unattended. Nobody's perfect, but I'm loyal. I have some rules, but I'm great for an active family(with older children) and no other dogs. Please call and speak with my humans to learn more about me!
