Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). We are courtesy posting Lucy for another rescue in the hopes she will find a home soon. Lucy is always looked over. There is nothing flashy about her but this girl will make someone an awesome companion. She certainly loves to please you. Lucy is maybe 3 years old and is probably around 40 lbs. She is an excellent size. Lucy is probably lab and pittie and she is sweet. She was rescued from the Lorain County Dog Kennel. If interested in Lucy, please contact Vera @ 440-775-4101 or Peggy @ 440-984-7014.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      ROCKY

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound / Mixed (short coat). Rocky is a 1-2 year old Treeing Walker Coonhound mix. He weighs around 52 lbs and is at a good weight. He was rescued from a dog shelter in southern OH. Rocky was so shy that they asked for help where he could be in a foster home. Rocky had gone to their prison program and was trained by the inmates and really learned his stuff but still was remaining very shy. He is crate trained and knows his basic commands. Rocky is also housetrained and rides great in the car. He gets along great with dogs but should not go to a home with any cats. We believe he will be excellent with respectful children. Rocky would love a home with a child or two to keep him busy and a secure fenced in yard. The fenced in yard is a must for him and we would like an adopter to be an active person who will walk him daily and maybe do some hiking. If interested in Rocky, please e-mail hartmanshounds@gmail.com or call Peggy @ 440-452-1619.

      BROWNIE AKA ...

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chocolate Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Brownie came to us after being given up by her caregiver due to moving and not having enough time for her. She is right around 7 years old and currently weighs 51 lbs but could lose a little weight. She is a chocolate lab mix and has the lab appetite to prove it. Brownie is a little timid in meeting new people but once she knows she can trust you, she becomes your long lost pal. We were told she is not good with cats but we have not yet tried that for ourselves. She seems to be good with other dogs and is good with children, although we would like those children to be older, as in early teenage years. Brownie is housetrained and rides well in the car. She is a very loving dog. If interested in Brownie, please e-mail hartmanshounds@gmail.com or call Peggy @ 440-452-1619.

      DELSIE

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). ~~Delsie is roughly 3 1/2 years old. She was a rescue and her actual age is unknown. She's current on all vaccinations, spayed, and house broken. Her conduct in the house is flawless with the exception that she will destroy her toys in an evening (antlers hold up well but even kongs fall victim). I leave her out all day and she makes no mess. She'll bark at guests but is really quiet otherwise. Her conduct with people is fantastic. She's a licking, loving machine. Very great with kids however not the best with other dogs. For about 2 1/2 years I had two dogs and 99% of the time they were great. The other 1% amounts to a few fights between the two dogs which were caused by the other dog whom had issues due to being in a abusive home before I got her. Delsie is sweet, soft, petite, and the best cuddler. Very patient, loyal, and smart. Couldn't ask for a better dog if the timing for me was better. Unfortunately the timing is not great and Delsie really needs a family or someone who can play and enjoy her more than myself. I (Jan) had the pleasure of meeting Delsie today and what a sweetheart. She greeted me with kisses and tail wags. She is very petite, I would consider her a medium to small sized girl.

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Husky Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Husky / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (medium coat). ~~Thor is approximately 4 years old and weighs about 55 lbs. He had a very sad beginning to life and was rescued out of a hoarding situation last year. At this time ONLY people with experience handling abused and/or fearful dogs will be allowed to adopt Thor. Thor still needs a lot of training and assistance in figuring out how to “be a dog” and how to interact with other dogs. Thor is now able to walk up and down stairs, walk thru doorways, eat out of a bowl, and walk on a leash (with limited issues). He is UTD on shots, neutered, housetrained, & crate trained. He is getting better every day on leash walking. Thor is currently having some medical issues which we are attempting to get to the bottom of. Thor’s right eye has a damaged retina and cataracts. This means that he is partially blind in his right eye but does have some cloudy vision. For more background and up to date information please visit his Facebook Page, “Thor's Voyage”. He must have a home with a secure fenced in yard. Due to his background and some issues that he still has, Thor will not be adopted to anyone with small children or small pets. Thor seems to do better with female dogs versus male dogs, but still needs a lot of work interacting correctly with other dogs. If interested in Thor, please e-mail hartmanshounds@gmail.com or call Peggy @ 440-452-1619.

      rescue
      Breed: Beagle-Red Heeler Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Red Heeler / Beagle / Mixed (short coat). UPDATE: 10-10-17 Abby in foster home. Listens really well. Plays with the cats. Loves to play fetch. Being Crate Trained. Very active little girl. Is going to be a great dog once her confidence is built and she gets through her puppy stage. Abby was given up by her caregiver's and turned into a shelter because they felt she was too protective of her caregiver and kids did visit. She did live with older children and did well. Abby is housetrained and has all of her house manners. She is still very young so will need consistent training as well as a caregiver who shows her what is expected of her. She is only about a year old and only weighs 30 lbs. We believe her mix to be Red Heeler/Beagle so she will need daily activity. We would also prefer that Abby has a fenced in yard and her home should only have children who are in their teens. Abby will make a wonderful companion with a strong leader. If interested in Abby, please e-mail hartmanshounds@gmail.com or call Peggy @ 440-452-1619.
