Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). Happy Hills Animal Foundation, Inc www.hhaf.org Hello, my name is Tippy. I am an adult male rat terrier mix. Me and my best bud Puddin were brought to the HHAF shelter when after there was a death in our family and their was no one left to care for us. The staff here say that we are like two pea's in a pod. I love spending time in the exercise yard and cuddling in my soft fleece blanket. I am currently talking applications for my new family. Apply Today!! 336-622-3620 office@hhaf.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.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Happy Hills Animal Foundation, Inc www.hhaf.org Hope American Pit bull Terrier Mix Spayed Female Birthdate: 2013 Hope is a very sweet pit mix who was wandering on a rural country road when she was found by a Good Samaritan who brought her to our clinic. It was obvious that she had given birth in the preceding four to five months but there were no puppies with her when she was found. Hope loves people and some dogs but we have to be honest and say that she is not always dog friendly. We can let her out in the backyard with other dogs in our adoption program and as long as they leave her alone to do her own thing or lay in a sunny spot she is fine. However if they try and engage her in activity she sometimes reacts adversely. We do believe a lot of this behavior is due to being in a kenneled situation. Some dogs can tolerate being in a kenneled situation with no ill effects and some cannot. Hope is one that does not thrive in a kenneled environment. With all this being said, Hope is still a good dog. Her ideal home would be one without other pets and with an owner or family who will be diligent in continuing her training in regard to leash walking and other commands. Another important aspect of training for Hope will be to talk her on walks where she will see new people and animals so that she will become more confident and self-assured. In addition, she would love a secured yard to lounge around in on sunny days. Could your home be the perfect one for Hope? 336-622-3620 office@hhaf.org
