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.

      Breed: Jack Russell Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Hound / Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Paco was saved from a rural shelter in southern OH. He came into the shelter with two other dogs after his person went to jail. Paco is a friendly guy, who is great with everyone. Sometimes he seems nervous, but, gets over it quickly. He is currently in a foster home with oehter dogs and cats and gets along with all. He would do best in a home with children at least 10-12 years old. Paco is probably about three years old and currently is 37 lbs but could gain a few. He loves to play and run alot. If you're active and looking for that pal to do stuff with...Paco is your dog. He is housebroken and has all of his house manners. He also does great in the car.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog / Mixed (medium coat). Mingo has just arrived into our rescue from another shelter that would have euthanized him due to medical - possible allergies and badly infected ears. He is now on ear meds and antibiotics to get him better. We believe Mingo to be a Catahoula Leopard Dog mix. He is 6-7 years old and weighs 78 lbs. We were told that he gets along with other dogs. Spent time with Mingo the other day. He rides rather well in the car and does know how to sit. He is feeling more comfortable with new things and progressing nicely. He does need some leash work which has been started. He is rather strong so it's important to get this going. He really seems to be a sweet boy who probably had a home at some point in his life but probably not a good one. UPDATE - 5/18/17 - Mingo has moved into a foster home and is doing great. He is housetrained and has learned how great going for walks is. He has also learned to walk much better on the leash. He does seem to do fine with dogs he meets on his daily walks. He is also fine with the cat in the home. If interested in Mingo, please e-mail hartmanshounds@gmail.com or call Peggy @ 440-452-1619.

      Breed: Husky-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Husky / Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Laddie is one of several Husky mixes rescued from a horrible living arrangement. He is currently in foster and trying to learn how to be a normal dog. It will take time and a lot of patience but we are going to give it a try. Laddie almost appears to fear other dogs. I think in the life he was forced to live, he was one of the low dogs and picked on and bullied. His snout has the scars to lead us to that thought. He is very food motivated and has learned to take treats from your hand. Laddie is about 5 to 5 1/2 years old and in the low 50's for weight. He is a husky mix possibly with some shepherd? His ideal home must have a fenced in yard and someone who will let him learn at his own pace with positive reinforcement. We don't yet know how he is with cats. We would prefer home where maybe there is only once other laid back dog and probably no children. Please e-mail hartmanshounds@gmail.com for more info or call Peggy @ 440-452-1619. Laddie is fully vetted.

      rescue
      Breed: Husky-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Husky / Mixed (medium coat). Thor is not yet ready for adoption but we wanted people to be able to see him and if interested and willing to wait until he is ready to find a home of his own. Thor will also need someone willing to work with him once they have him. He has absolutely no aggression but is close to being a feral dog. He is pretty much housetrained at this point. Thor lived his 3 1/2 years in a garage with many other dogs amongst their own urine and feces. They never left the garage or had human contact other than someone walking in and throwing food on the floor. He has some battle scars on his nose from the ugly conditions they were forced to endure. Thor is also blind in his right eye but the left eye is fine. He must have a home with a secure fenced in yard. More info to come as we have more to share. If interested in this beautify boy, e-mail hartmanshounds@gmail.com for call Peggy @ 440-452-1619.

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Pixie and Skittles are the sweetest dogs. They were given up by their people who had them their whole lives due to their child having severe allergies to them. They were taken in by a foster in Oct of 2016 with thoughts of potentially adopting them. That person and I both agree that she cannot give them what they need. She is unable to walk them and they do need to be able to go for walks. They are both around 9 years old, one is female, Pixie and Skittles is the male. They are good with other dogs, great with cats and lived with a young child. Their only habit is they do bark at certain noises but some of that could be boredom and lack of exercise. Pixie and Skittles are both in excellent health and are current on their vaccines and heartworm prevention. They are spayed and neutered. They both weigh about 50 lbs and could lose a little weight, especially Pixie. They are friendly with everyone they meet. THEY ARE BONDED AND WE DO WANT TO KEEP THEM TOGETHER. We would also prefer a fenced in yard for them. They can be left with the run of the house while you work or are out running errands. Please contact Peggy at 440-984-7014 or e-mail hartmanshounds@gmail.com if you are interested in these two sweet dogs. They deserve their happy ending.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). COURTESY POST: Contact ditrhdrescue@gmail.com Princess has been in the care of another rescue for almost 9 months now. She had been overbred, abandoned and then overlooked at the local kennel. She then found herself on the urgent list when they took her in. She literally had no clue what appropriate social behavior was. She just wanted to love everyone and every dog she saw. But,her approach was way too enthusiastic. Well, 9 months of patience and love,evaluations from trainers and consistent positive training is making her an excellent companion. Princess is 4-5 yrs old and loves all people. Her Tail is always wagging ( that's her trademark) and she shows everyone that the myth about pitbulls is just that,a myth. Princess is fully vetted and good with other dogs, older respectful kids, but, NO CATS Please. Contact ditrhdrescue@gmail.com

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Greta is a Pit mix, around 4 years old, 53 pounds, housebroken and crate trained. She Is living with other dogs and cats and can be a little overwhelmed when she first meets other dogs, so would need a meet and greet to make sure the other dog is comfortable with her energy. She would do better with teenagers and adults- she sometimes plays a little too rough for small children. She's been going on weekly pack walks with other dogs and is doing great.
