Ryder

Ryder - 4 year old Husky/ Shepherd mix female. House trained, friendly with most other dogs and very pretty...being a Husky type we hope to find her a home with someone that knows and understand this breed. They can be tricky on you because they are so darn smart. If you are an active person, she is right up your alley. She also likes to chill and snuggle at the end of the day. super sweet

Beth Ann

Some dogs show us who they are right off the bat and some wait a couple weeks...lol
Beth (mighty mouse) is NOT good with other dogs. She can be in small doses but would definitely do better as the only dog in the home.
She is an English Bulldog/PitBull Terrier mix according to our vet. So she has two bully breeds in there and she is stubborn as heck (keeping it clean for this post). About 2 to 3 years old. 
She weighs about 35 lbs and is VERY short.
She LOVES people and couches and beds and car rides and food...But no other dogs in the home.
If you are looking to have just one dog, she is perfect.

Hayes

Hayes - 5 year old American Eskimoo male. Hayes weighs 21 lbs. I love this dog! He is perfectly house trained, NEVER has an accident. He does okay with other dogs as long as they are not crazy hyper in your face dogs. Hayes has one flaw and one flaw only and that is he is timid with hand motions. This only last for a short time but he absolutely cannot go home with any children at all! he would do best in a home with structure and routine's as he has a little OCD himself. Likes his bed kept neat, his fur kept clean and his food tidy in his bowl. lol
He is very affectionate with his humans...But again terrified of hand movements and quick approaching things like kids.

Apple

Apple is still waiting for her forever family (needs to be the only pet and no small children please). She is house trained, very laid back and loving. Would be awesome in a home with older kids (teenages).

- She LOVES people
- She's potty trained 
- Is good in her crate while her humans are at work
- Total couch potato (most of the time), but is also down for an adventurous walk
- Walks pretty well on a leash
- Has the best pitty smile you've ever seen
- Is an independent lady, but also loves cuddling
- Always greets you with a wiggle
- Is the perfect client at the groomers and enjoys going (also calm and collected at the vet's office!)
- She needs to be the only pet to soak up all of the love and attention and no small children please.

We love her so much, and know she could make the right family so happy. If you're interested or know someone who is interested please fill out an application at hoperescues.com. 

Ruby Roo

Ruby Roo is an 8 year old female Boxer.  She is very active and loves to play fetch.  She does not do well with other dogs or small animals so it is best that she be an only pet.  She does have a special diet of Purina ONE Smartblend True Instict, canned pumpkin and yogurt with a morning Pepcid. Yes, she is spoiled.. :)

Ruby Roo's Sponsor is Beverly Tucker

Arrow

Arrow, a 5 year old German Shepherd male.  He is a BIG boy but oh so gentle with people. He has lots of energy & needs to be reminded once in awhile to mind his manners but he tries very hard to be a good boy
(Arrow may not live in the city of Alton because his owners let him run at large and he killed a 4 lb Yorkie. We still do not know if he meant to as the dog had no bite marks but it is what it is)
He will need to be an only dog and he will only be allowed to go home with an experienced dog handler. He cannot ever be allowed to roam at large again.
