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.

      Posted Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound / Foxhound / Mixed. Susie is a sweet hound mix who gets along with everyone! She loves people (adults and kids alike) and gets along well with other dogs. She's a pretty calm dog but also likes to play and go for walks (especially if she gets to smell and explore new places!). Susie likely spent most of her life outside prior to arriving at the shelter, and she seems very happy to be living indoors now. She's healing from a non-contagious skin condition and is growing back her beautiful coat. Susie is undergoing treatment for heartworms, so she is eligible for our foster-to-adopt program. You get to have Susie join your home while Hope pays the bills, and we finalize the adoption after her treatment is finished. Susie is about 5 years old and weighs around 38 pounds. She is house trained and crate trained, and is learning leash and obedience skills. She would love a house with a fenced yard, she loves to explore and has the typical Hound bark when she has something to say! If you're interested in Susie, apply for her today - she'd love to meet you!

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. Hi! My name is Beezy. If you like to unwind at the end of the day by snuggling on the couch and catching up on your favorite TV shows, I am the girl for you! I would love nothing more than to curl up in your lap or next to you. My second favorite activity is going on walks. I am house trained and leash trained, and my foster parents say I trot around the neighborhood like I own the place. I think that means they like my confidence and peppy attitude. I get along well with my canine foster sister, and I'm learning how to share toys instead of running off to hide them from her under the bed. She's being patient with me, and even lets me share the big dog bed with her! I don't love being in the crate when my foster parents are away, but a peanut butter-filled Kong helps me pass the time until they come back home. Despite my big girl attitude, I'm easily startled and nervous around new folks, and I would prefer to live in a quiet home without children or cats. I have what my foster mom calls "stranger danger syndrome," which means I don't like when people reach out for me before I know them, but once I have had a chance to get to know you, I am super affectionate and love to be in my friends' laps.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Feist / Chihuahua / Mixed. Hi! My name is Corey! I have a few funny nicknames, like Coreysaurus :) I am a senior about 11 years old, and weigh around 17 pounds. My favorite things to do include: burrowing under blankets, sleeping, and going for walks! My foster mom says that I am great on a leash and that I am a very smart and sweet boy. I love humans and saying hi to new people! I also like to hide and take naps in small hidden places, like under your bed, or in the back of your closet. I like small cozy spaces, so I'm pretty good in my crate if you need me to go in. I do tend to "sing" when you leave me, at least for a few minutes, just because I miss you, but then I calm down and go to sleep. I love to be held, and will even let you hold me like a baby! I may be a senior citizen, but I have a great happy personality with lots of tail wags! My foster mom gives me toys from time to time and I like to play with them (just for a few minutes, and then it's nap time!). I've been with Hope Animal Rescue longer than most of the other dogs here, and I'm not sure why. I'm such a great catch! Low maintenance, well behaved and trained, a great companion.

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed. Kodi is a goofy girl who loves to smile! We think she's a mix of bobtail and some sort of shepherd, but we aren't exactly sure. She is adorable though! She is house trained and walks happily on a leash right beside you. She is a smart girl who knows sit, stay, up, down, and shake with both paws! She wants nothing more than to be loved and adores cuddles. She loves fetch and squeaky toys, but long walks aren't her style. Kodi can make friends with people and calm dogs who respect her space, but is recommended in a home without children. She would love to find a family of her own to give her a calm and loving home!

      Posted Breed: Black Mouth Cur / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Meet Ozzie! Ozzie is a young lady who loves the three P's: people, playtime, and peanut butter. Ozzie is enjoying life outside of the shelter where she can curl up on her dog bed with a nice chew toy, and run around in the yard with her people and dog friends. This lovable girl has hyponotizing hazel eyes and loves to cuddle- even though she is 50+ lbs, she thinks she is 100% lap dog! Ozzie has gone through formal training with a professional trainer and is continuing to work on perfecting good manners with her foster family - especially learning to respect other dogs' and people's personal space - but she is eager to please and makng good progress! Ozzie loves other dogs but her big personality and enthusiastic play style suggests she would do best with easygoing dogs close to her size or larger. Ozzie will be a great, loyal companion for an active pet-lover or family who loves to laugh; she "talks" to other dogs while she's playing, does the moon walk, and likes to toss her toys in the air to play her own game of "fetch."
