Dog of the Week: Vega

Julia D Dog of the Week Leave a Comment

Vega is truly a bright star! She came to LHAR starving and heartworm positive. She has soared through her treatment and beefed up to become an affectionate pack member who loves to follow her people around and snuggle on the couch. She is now a big girl who loves to go outside for her limited walks. Her activity has been limited because of her heartworm diagnosis, but she would love longer walks. She will need some more leash training since she has become a big strong dog, and she should be back to full activity within the next month. She does not appear to be reactive to other dogs on leash and we have only heard her bark once in 4 months when surprised by another dog. She is very mellow and is relaxed through vacuuming, thunder, and fireworks. She enjoys car rides. Vega does not know how to play and ignores balls, sticks, and pull toys. She loves playing “where’s the biscuit?” and will happily search a room until she has found it. She is a smart, housetrained, kennel trained, and basic command trained affectionate dog who will become a lifelong companion for a lucky owner! She is about two years old.

Vega’s adoption fee is $250 and includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, a microchip with free lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.

Cecilia you’re breaking my heart….  We want to see this girl in the best possible forever home, she’s so sweet and she deserves a family to love and protect her as she’s had a rough start.

Cecilia is about seven years old and she’s so loving and affectionate! She’s also a unique girl with polydactyl paws! If your home needs the soft, sweet purr of a mature cat – meet Cecilia!

Dog of the Week: Goose

Julia D Dog of the Week Leave a Comment

Talk to me Goose! If you’re looking for a handsome medium-sized dog, you’re in luck! Goose is going to love having a yard of his own, he wouldn’t mind living with another medium-sized playful dog, and he’s good with elementary-aged kids or older. We aren’t sure about cats, he seems curious but hasn’t really been off leash or in a home setting with one. Goose is not a fan of the kennel, and he would love an owner who isn’t gone long days. He has done well not being kenneled while his foster family is at work. Goose is about two years old.

Goose’s adoption fee is $250 and includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, a microchip with free lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.

Cat of the Week: Ana

Julia D Cat of the Week Leave a Comment

This little lady is both loving and independent all at once! She loves chin scratches and head rubs but is not one to force herself on you. Her favorite things in the world are the perch by the window (in front of the bird feeders of course) and her cardboard scratching posts. She takes naps on both and spends her days going back and forth. She’s very chill and laid back. She does well with other cats and dogs. She does well with children but probably wouldn’t be a great fit for a young child that would always want to play or pick her up. She’s a little over two years old.

Ana’s adoption fee is $85 and includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, and a microchip with free lifetime registration.

Dog of the Week: George

Julia D Dog of the Week

This boy!  ALWAYS smiling!!! Georgie is a GREAT dog.  We mean, REALLY great.  He has amazing house manners and even knows a few tricks.  He kennels great but doesn’t need to be.  He lived a very hard life before coming to rescue, so while we’ve helped him get healthy (he was heartworm positive and completed treatments this Summer 2022), George does have some work to do on knowing that he’s secure and will never miss another meal. He’s best fed alone in his kennel, but is such a good listener you shouldn’t have any problems with this routine!  George would do best with someone who likes to go for walks or hikes, although he’s great at snuggling on the couch and watching tv or reading with. Georgie loves every person he meets.  He is prey driven, so no rabbits, chickens, cats, etc… for him, please.  He considers them “fast food.” George needs an owner that will understand the importance of monthly heartworm preventives, this will be especially important given his history.  George can be dog selective, he may not be well paired with another large or dominant male however, he has made dog friends of all sizes so an introduction will tell us all what will be the best fit. He is about seven years old.

George’s adoption fee is $250 and includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, a microchip with free lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.

Dog of the Week: Gabe

Julia D Dog of the Week

Hi! My name is Gabe, I am eight years old, and I love medium walks through the neighborhood. I would go on longer walks but my foster mom says I need to lose a few pounds before I can do long walks. Some of my other favorites include pets, belly rubs, and rolling around in the grass.  I’m a pretty easygoing guy, happy to just chill with my foster family. I lay around on the floor or sometimes I chill in my kennel with the door open. After my bedtime pets, I sleep nicely on the floor in my foster parents’ bedroom. I even sit nicely while you give my daily brush or trim my nails!  I’m potty trained and will give a little bark if I need to go outside. I do take a few meds daily and will need to stay on these long-term to help keep my heart healthy.   I did sneak out of my foster family’s fence chasing after a rabbit so a secure fence is important.  My foster mom tells me I’m just like a big, fluffy teddy bear! I’d love a home and a family of my own, I’m best paired with older kids.

Gabe’s adoption fee is $250 and includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, a microchip with free lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.

Dog of the Week: Houby

Julia D Dog of the Week

Handsome Houby is ready to be your best buddy! He loves going for walks and does great on a leash, but he’ll certainly enjoy having a yard of his own to explore. Houby is seeking a home with kids aged 12 or older. He’s a good-sized dog but came into rescue just a touch underweight so we’re working to help him gain a few pounds. Houby has good and playful energy, but may not be well suited to a home with other large male dogs or dominant personalities. Houby is about two to three years old.

Houby’s adoption fee is $250 and includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, a microchip with free lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.

Happy Tail: Jack

Julia D Happy Tails

Corey, Donna, and Jeff had lost their beloved dog, Paloma, and were looking online for a rescue from which they could adopt. Corey came upon Last Hope’s Facebook page and checked out our website. He was looking for a dog that maybe wasn’t perfect but would be a perfect fit for them.

He saw Jack and began the adoption process which Corey felt was pretty easy and thorough. Soon, Jack came to his new forever home and seemed to fit right in quickly. The adjustment period was easy for Jack. Now he rules the roost! He loves to play but good luck getting the toy from him. He loves it when you try to get the toy but never gives it up.

We’re so glad that Jack found a wonderful forever home and that he adjusted to it easily!
