Posted Breed: Mastiff / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Winston is very sweet, affectionate, and eager to please; he loves car rides. He is very athletic and would make an excellent running or cycling partner. He is smart and capable of laser-like focus. He is easily motivated to train with either food or toys. He knows sit, down, place, look, come, stand, out, leave it and heel. He loves to play tug and can play fetch for days. Winston is an absolutely amazing dog but he will need a very special adopter. The ideal adopter will need to have experience with dogs. Winston requires constant structure and guidance to reap all he has to offer. Age: 4 years Weight: 70 lbs If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application on our website at http://www.lasthopek9.org Questions? Please email adoptions@lasthopek9.org.

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: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Feist / Mixed. Petey is a stray from my area (I am sure another "dump"). He was living down by the sewage plant and running in the woods around the area. I wasn't able to catch him. The plant workers were feeding him and wanted him but never took him home. He finally made his way down by my house where he was almost run over by the fire truck. That is when I was finally able to nab him! Age: 1 year Weight: 18 lbs. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application on our website at http://www.lasthopek9.org/ Questions?

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. Ginger came to rescue when their elderly father went into assisted living. Ginger is very sweet but is nervous of new people at first. Once she gets to know you, which doesn't take very long, she is putty in your hands. She was a little bit spoiled by her dad, who loved her very much, and thinks she should share your meals. She will take a day or so to get used to new dogs, but once she does, she will hang out with them. Age: 8 years Weight: 6 lbs.

      rescue
      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. Romey is a 10 year young bundle of love. He may be middle aged for a chihuahua, but he acts half his age. He is lively and funny and sweet, always wanting love from his person. He is what I call a velcro dog, always at your side. He is a bit timid at first meeting new dogs, but loses that fear quickly and eventually wants to play with other dogs his size. He can be a bit vocal, so if you have neighbors who are picky about noise, he might not be the right fit. He is interested in cats perhaps a bit much for some, but he doesn't want to hurt them-he is very intrigued and wants to get them to play. Romey has a charming personality and likes every person he meets. He doesn't like to be startled and will get defensive quickly if approached from vehind, so perhaps best not to be with younger children who can't understand not to approach him this way. He is not crate trained but he is housetrained and is not destructive so can easily be left home free or confined to a room. He would also do well in a daycare where the small dogs are separate from the large dogs (by whom he is a bit more intimidated). Age: 10 years Weight: 10 lbs.

      Posted Breed: Husky / Mixed. Brosius is a very smart boy. He takes a while to warm up to new people, but does much better in a pack. He needs a home with other dogs and a fenced in yard (he cannot be left unattended, can clear a 4ft fence). He would likely be fine with older kids who respect his space.
