Facts about Tinker

  • Breed: Dogo Argentino
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Tinker is listed as special needs because she is deaf. That don't mean she is dumb. She knows sit, wait, give paw, give kisses and eat now. She is a very smart girl. She just wants someone who will spend some one on one time with her and let her know she is a good girl. She gets along with other dogs after being properly introduced. I don't know about cats as I have never seen her around them. She does not jump on you and will wait at the door until you ask her to come out. If you are interested in giving her a wonderful home please go to www.hoppershalfwayhome.com and fill out and application. Tinker says Thank you for looking.

About Hoppers Halfway Home Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are not a big place. We are an all volunteer no kill facility. We opened in May of 2011. We have had over 250 adoptions since opening. We opened the rescue because there were not enough places in our area to help all the dogs coming into the shelter. I can have up to 25 rescue dogs. That means there are 25 more getting out of the shelter than before we opened. There are two of us that work full time taking care of the 25 rescue dogs and my own personal pets.

If you are looking for a way to help the animals we would love to talk to you about joining us as a volunteer. We need morning, afternoon and weekend help.

We have at least one adoption event a month. We would love to have more but to do that we need more help.

Some of the things on our wish list are: Dog food. Dry adult and puppy, canned adult and puppy, treats, collars, leashes, sweaters, etc. We also need bleach, laundry detergent, fabric softener, Pine Sol, Odo-Ban (disinfectant) can get by the gallon at Sams Club. Paper towels, toilet tissue, baby wipes, etc. We can always use monetary donations for vetting, medicines, grooming, gas for transports, etc.

We are located in Harrodsburg, Ky. We are open Tuesday through Fri, by appointment, for you to meet our furkids. Our hours are from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.
