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

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. 

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.

Malu

 

Malu is a beautiful 4 year old Blue Pitt Mix. She was left behind when her family moved and came in malnourished, hairless and covered in skin sores from lack of care. She is a very pretty and healthy girl now and she LOVES people, LOVES them all. But due to lack of socialization as a puppy she does not do well with other dogs or cats. She would love to have all the attention she can get, belly rubs, walks, car rides, you name it as long as she is with her person she is happy.

Sanford

Sanford - 3 year old American Staffordshire terrier. He is deaf but don't let that fool you he isn't hard to manage at all as he only wants to please you. He is GREAT with other dogs and house trained. He does great with people too but because of his deafness, he is easily surprised so he would do best in a home with no small children.

Clayton

Clayton is an 8 yr old Boxer mix male. He was the only survivor of a litter of puppies who were rescued from Union County Animal Control along with their mommy.Clayton has a neurological issue that prevents him from running like a normal dog.He is also partially blind in one eye.He LOVES almost everyone, dogs, (no tiny dogs or cats) adults, he has a wonderful nature even with this disability.  Because of this limited vision, he would do best with a home without small children. He will get to live a long happy life as his issue will not affect his years on this earth, just his ability to run like a normal dog. Please give this amazing survivor a place to call forever.

Clayton's Sponsors are Holly Robeen and Julie Poulos
