Hope travels well and can't wait to get in the car if we are going out. She is very active and enjoys her walks. She can be quite strong on a lead but walks well in a head collar. She is very confident and social . Hope loves people and is always excited to meet them either at home or when out and about. She loves other dogs too and is always keen to play. She gets on very well with the other dogs in the foster home.
Hope is looking for an active home that can give her the company and exercise she needs. She loves human company so ideal for a home worker that can take regular breaks to walk and stimulate her.

dontgiveup


Note to adopters:

Lassie, Rin Tin Tin and Toto do not show up in rescue. We do not get the elegantly coiffed, classically beautiful, completely well trained, perfect dog. Many never had good veterinary care, kind or consistent training, or sufficient company. Some have lived outside, or left alone for many hours every day. When rehomed they are scared or depressed and anxious and will act out of character but time, patience and love will solve this. When you take on a rescue dog you need to be 100% committed to making it work, ride the storm but do not ever give up. We at rescue never give up on a dog. We know that a dog is a living being, with a spirit and a heart and feelings. Our dogs are not commodities, things, or garbage. They are part of lifes sacred creation and they deserve as much love and care and respect as Lassie, Rin Tin Tin or Toto. So please, please do not come to rescue in the hopes of getting a "bargain" or "a fully trained dog". Come to Rescue to give, to love, to save a life -- and to mend your own spirit. For Rescue will reward you in ways you never thought possible. We can promise you this -- a rescue dog will make you a better person.
