Snookie is a 6 year old Shepherd/Pittie mix female. She is friendly but would do best with families with older children. She loves to play ball and get belly rubs but does not like to share her toys with dogs or humans. She is not aggressive but nippy when trying to take it away.. so we play "Trade-up" with great success.  

She is house trained and well mannered in the home. She has made friends at the sanctuary but a family who is only wanting one dog in the home would be best for her so she does not have to share. She listens well to commands and is very smart.


Meet Lil Miss Echo! a super sweet pittie that came to Hope Rescues via Alton Animal Control. Echo is a soft caramel color with some white markings, and weighs about 35-40 lbs. She came to Hope Rescues just after having her puppies, so she was very confused and frightened. Echo is believed to be approximately 7 years old. She is such a good girl and never dirties her room and she also know some commands. When she arrived at Hope, it was obvious that at one time she had been someone's special girl, as she had evidence of gold nail polish on her toenails. Echo loves to play ball and give kisses, and with her sweet smile and her lil' cocked ear, she'll win your heart before you know it! How she ended up being alone, is anyone's guess, but, all she wants now is to have a forever home and lots of lovin'... and maybe, just maybe, to have her toe nails painted once again~Echo would prefer to be the only dog in the home.
