Elsa is a 2 year old female German Shepherd Dog.  She is a wonderful family dog who does well around young kids.  She weighs about 75lbs and is vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, crate trained and is just an all around great dog! She has been around other dogs and does well. Not sure about cats and other small animals as she would love nothing more then to eat a squirrel.

The only reason we are letting her go is our family is taking in some relatives and 2 of the kids are very allergic. It might just be a temporary summer thing but it could last longer and we have no where to put her.   A reasonable re-homing fee will be required upon adoption and it will be donated to a local charity.   Elsa is located in the Madison, WI area.  Contact Amanda at for more information on this wonderful dog!

We love our rescued dogs!



Luther was adopted in January 2015

Right now, we don’t have any dogs available for adoption.  We are looking for new dogs to take into rescue.  Also, we could really use some help from people willing to step and and become foster homes.


Louie was adopted in November 2014


Dogs rescued by NorthStar WI are taken in by area foster homes where they have are given a medical checkup, spay/neutered, are brought up to date on major vaccinations and are tested for Heartworm.


Mocha, a NorthStar WI alumni, was adopted in the summer of 2014

While NorthStar WI is based in Madison, WI, our dogs are fostered by wonderful families throughout Wisconsin and the Chicago area.  We do not have a shelter.  Our dogs can be seen with an approved application on file.  If you are interested in one of our available dogs – please fill out an application.    Learn more about our adoption and application process 


Charlotte, another NorthStar WI alumni, was adopted in the summer in 2014






Lucy is a 3 year old female Australian Cattle Dog. Like most ACDs, she’s very smart and is always willing to do work for you. She currently knows Go around me, Dance, Lay Down, Turn around, Shake, and High-fives. She also knows these commands; Leave it, Sit, Stay, Come, Off, ‘No’ and Lay down. This is one smart cookie and is looking for a new teacher and friend.


Due to some life changes, Lucy is in need for a new home where she can get lots of exercise and daily romps. Lucy does fine with cats and with children over the age of 10. She can be fearful of other dogs and needs further socialization and training on doggy introductions. A visible fence or containment plan would be advised.

Lucy is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and crate and house trained. She is located in Madison.  Contact Berit for more information at  608-772-8456 or for more information.



Thanks for checking for dogs with NorthStar.  Right now we do not have any available dogs.  Please follow us on Facebook  to be kept up to date on new dogs!
