Hope's Info...

I am a special needs pet and up to date with shots.

Hope's Story...
Hope is a 9 week old mix breed. Hope is a special needs dog and is paralyzed in her back legs. She was named Hope because we are hoping for a very special family that will love her despite her handicap. Hope was fitted for a cart and now she has no problem running around. She has a fantastic, optomistic, sweet personality. She loves other dogs too. She will be the perfect dog to take to schools and pet therapy because seeing her makes everyone around her feel like if she's not complaining why should I? She only weighs 6 pounds so we think she'll be fairly small. The first step in adopting Hope is to fill out an application by going to www.animaleducationandrescue.org. her adoption donation is $150.00. HOPE UPDATE! 11/7/05 Hope had a revised cart made for her. She has already outgrown it. Hope has been to a surgeon who said that Hope's back hips were fractured in some sort of injury which damaged them. Surgery is possible but because it will cost over $10,000 and there is no promise it will work we have decided not to even try and raise the money. Hope goes to phyisical therapy beginning this coming Saturday. Our hope is that through physical therapy her legs will not get anymore scar tissue. Hope has no idea she's handicapped and is living a very full life. We are going to get her a new cart soon. Hope is learning to pee on newspaper. We are not yet sure whether she will learn to be housebroken. She is still so young (11 weeks) that only time will tell. Thank you to all those people who have shown their love and well-wishes to our little sweetie. 1/13/06 See regular updates on Hope on our web site at www.animaleducationandrescue.org

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hope, a Libertyville German Shepherd Dog/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Libertyville, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) puppy from a breeder in Libertyville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Libertyville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Libertyville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even German Shepherd Dog/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Libertyville paves the way for another one to be saved.
