Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi everyone, my name is Posh, but I am also called Poshi Poo, Poshimus and a few other endearing nicknames! I am 2 years old, and I love life and everyone in it! I have lots of playful energy, love to go for walks, and am happy to chill out and watch some television too! I get along with some dogs, but would be best as a single dog. I love people most of all, and am happy to go wherever you want to go! She has been through formal training and would love to show you how smart she is. She walks well on a leash, and knows sit, down, heel, place, touch, and come, but is still working on 'drop it' because she loves her toys so much and hates to let them go - she will try to fit two in her mouth to avoid having to leave one behind! An active family without young children would be Posh's dream, she has an energetic spirit and loves to explore, but settles down when it is time to do so (and she's had enough exercise). She would love a family to continue her training, she is a really smart cookie! If you are interested in Posh, please click here to submit an application. Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescued pet! Our adoption fees are as follows: Puppies and Dogs (up through 7 years old) – $250 Dogs (8 years of age or older) – $100 Kittens and Cats (up through 7 years old) – $100 Cats (8 years of age or older) – $50 Adoption Application: http://www.hopeanimals.org/#!adoption-application/c1trs

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: Beagle
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Durham, NC
      Posted Breed: Beagle. Duffy is a sweet senior lemon Beagle (under 20 pounds, age around 8?). She is being treated for a non-contagious skin issue (her early pics show how much hair loss she had, but it's coming back now!) Here's what her foster mom had to say about her: "Duffy is a loving girl who just wants any attention you can give her. She is content snuggling up against you, giving nose bonks, or watching you in fascination. She likes to have her floppy ears and squishy neck rubbed. She will even lean into you for a playful wrestling match. Duffy enjoys being around other dogs for companionship and loves playing with puzzle toys on her own. She is curious about visitors who come to the house or children who happen to be out in the neighborhood. Duffy considers everyone her friend. She has yet to vocalize like a typical hound, but she can hold up her end of the conversation with a soft mumble. Duffy has adjusted very well to living inside the house with her family, but she still enjoys sunning herself outside in the yard with her foster friends when the weather is pleasant. This bubbly girl has a lot of energy to burn, so she needs to be exercised daily – either on a leash or in a fenced yard. She is a Beagle after all and can be distracted by her sniffer!"

      Location: Durham, NC
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Chihuahua. Hello! My foster is calling me Chug, and we think I am a chihuahua terrier mix. I am just about a year old, and weigh about 15 pounds. I am white, with brown spots, and I have an adorable underbite. I've enjoyed playing with bigger and smaller dogs, so I should get along great with any size dog. I do like to chase the kitties, so I would not do well with cats. I love to lay in the sun on the deck outside, and snuggle on the sofa when I come inside. I love to go for walks, and do well on a leash. I'm already neutered, and I'm current on my vaccines and preventatives. I'm looking forward to joining my forever family!

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Durham, NC
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler. Dotty is a very sweet senior dog, we believe she is about 11 years old. She weighs 26 lbs and has a beautiful white coat with tan spots, hence the name Dotty! She is extremely gentle and shy and gets along very well with other dogs. Dotty can be a bit timid, but is gaining confidence by the day. She does not seem to hear well, but that does not slow her down! Dotty is crate trained and walks well on the leash. Dotty is heartworm positive and undergoing treatment, so she is eligible for our foster-to-adopt program, where HAR takes care of her heartworm treatments through our vet partner, but you get to begin caring for her in your home and the adoption is finalized upon completion of heartworm treatment.
