Dog of the Week: Fuzz

Julia D Dog of the Week

Fuzz 2

I’m Fuzz and I’m a Husky mix. I am already neutered, house trained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs. Fuzz’s Story… Fuzz had surgery in March on a deformed front leg which was successful. He will have some soreness in that leg for awhile and especially after being very active. He needs a full year to recover the strength in that leg so he is considered a special needs dog.  He does love to run after a rolling frisbee and chase his foster canine brothers and sisters.  His energy comes in spurts and he tends to want to rest for a few minutes after running and playing.  He likes short walks and likes to find places along the way to lay in the shade and observe the world.  I would not consider him a good running or biking companion at this time.  Note:  It would be preferable for daily walks to be on grassy areas since he drags his leg a bit and the inner two nails get ground down to the quick. He can be a little stubborn at times so a family who has the patience to train a sometimes stubborn pup will be required as well as a fenced yard.

Fuzz

He knows the basic sit, down, touch and focus commands.  He is housetrained as long as you remember to let him out frequently and he is comfortable in the family.  If he is not let out regularly he may have some “excited” peeing – this is not on purpose, just accidental.  He has gotten much better at waiting until he is let out! He likes to play in the kiddie pool and bite the water.  I have had him de-shedded by a groomer in the spring and he has not shed very much after that, so once a year to remove his winter coat may be enough. Fuzz is looking for an active, loving, forever family to love.  He would also like to be with another active pup so he could have a chasing/wrestling partner.

Hi! I am Barclay. I traveled all the way from Egypt to find my forever home in Iowa.  I like it here, everyone is very nice to me.  I am about 1 1/2 years old.  I had a pretty rough time before I came to Iowa.  I am missing some hair on my body because of some very bad people.  But no worries now.. I am all healed up and really want a home where I can love on all my people.  I know lots of commands too.  I can sit, down, shake and I am crate trained. I love to play with toys too!  I really like it when someone rubs coconut oil on my skin, it feels really good! Everyone says I am a very handsome boy!  I would love to meet you!

Dog of the Week: Emily

Julia D Dog of the Week

Emily 2

Hi, my name is Emily. I’m an energetic 2 year old pit/terrier mix. I’m a really sweet and loving girl, at least that’s what my foster parents say. I love to give kisses, and I’ll let you rub my belly for hours on end. I enjoy snuggling next to you, laying on my back with all 4 legs straight in the air. My foster parents laugh at me, I guess it’s quite the sight. I’m also a great napping partner. I love playing with my foster brother. He’s a lab they say. He’s bigger than me, but that doesn’t stop me. We have the best time playing tug of war and running the yard together. We even snuggle together. I would enjoy having another dog around, but I also love being the only dog around and getting all the attention to myself. Really any home is fine with me as long as I’m getting affection.

EmilyI love treats, walks and playing outside. Although I do like to try to find even the smallest hole in the fence to see if I can go out and explore the outside world. My foster parents just have to keep their eye on me and not leave me unattended out there. But I’m happy to just bask in the sun and run laps around the yard until I’m worn out. I’m a girl, and true to fashion, I do enjoy shoes. My foster mom says I’m not enjoying them the right way though. I guess she doesn’t chew on hers. Who knew? There have only been a couple of casualties with flip flops. Now she just keeps them put away. I also do okay with kids, but sometimes if they are really little I just don’t know how to contain my excitement and can knock them over. Kids over age 5 would be great playmates for me! I’m anxiously awaiting my furever home. Could you be the one?

We have a new group of kittens in and they’re beyond adorable!

Eloise Caption Sully Caption

The spunky girl of the group, Eloise can be found climbing a plastic bag on the door knob. She gets
her name from the little girl in the Eloise movies.

Sully likes to jump up in the “Sully scare pose” from Monsters Inc.

Wyffel Caption Wrigley Caption

Wyffel is a very curious kitten! Was timid at first, but she has blossomed. In fact, she does the best with the dogs!

Wrigley is very playful but also laid back. He is always trying to escape his room and get into something.

Cat of the Week: Bandit

Julia D Cat of the Week

Bandit

Hi, my name is Bandit. I am a ten-year-old chocolate Siamese. The first ten years of my life I lived in a home with a situation of neglect and abuse. Critter Crusaders and Last Hope saved me and my brother Bear, a Sheltie. My foster Mom says she is touched by how deeply I love humans despite how I grew up. Thanks to Critter Crusaders I have gotten strong and healthy. The doctors believe I am blind and probably have been all my life due to a congenital condition. I just lost my last tooth, but I haven’t let it bother me at all. I eat wet food, but I really love my dry food and still eat it too. There are three things I enjoy most: Snuggling, playing, and lounging on blankets. Whenever you are near I will come and lay my head close to you. I love having the back of my neck scratched. A piece of string is my favorite toy. My foster Mom argues my blindness because of how well I can follow strings. I can always find the coziest blanket in a room. I have lived with a dog before. I currently live with other cats that are older as well as a kitten. I also live with a young child in my foster home. She is gentle with me and feeds me so I don’t mind her at all. Sometimes I play a little too rough with the other cats because I am still learning how to play, but I am learning and want to get along with everyone. I don’t have any teeth or front claws so I can’t hurt anybody. I hope to find a forever home with humans that will give me blankets to lay on and lots of hugs and kisses.

If you are interested in me you can send an email to adoptions@adopthope.org or fill out an application HERE. My adoption donation is only $25.
