I'm Jory, a 9 month old German Shepherd mix. I came a really bad situation where I wasn't really able to live up to my full puppy potential, so I'm just starting to do that now. I've started to do some puppy things like exploring everything with my mouth and have learned that getting petted and loved on is so fun. I am very timid and need time to warm up. It is very important that my forever family understands that I need lots of patience and activities, like obedience training, to help build my confidence and to help me be a brave boy. I am quite smart and am picking up commands very quickly. I'm working on house training and learning that my crate is my safe space. I'm also learning about walking on leash--it's kinda weird! Since I am skittish, I need a house with a nice high fence. I will be a big guy so a family with older, sturdier kids would be best. Another dog in the house to show me the ropes would be a great idea, too. My foster mom hasn't seen me around cats before. I am up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and neutered. My adoption fee is $250. Please apply at Thanks!

About Hearts of Hope Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Hearts of Hope's mission is to save homeless unwanted dogs. Pet overpopulation is a global crisis. Our local animal shelters are full of wonderful dogs that just need more time and help finding the right home. Many of our dogs come from these local kill shelters and others come from urgent rescue situations spanning as far as Beirut, Lebanon. Hearts of Hope strives to help as many dogs as possible. If we are able, we will help. We know we can't save them all, but it matters to the ones we can save.

Hearts of Hope Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dog rescue located in Grand Rapids, MI. It was founded by Director, Janelle McFarlane November 23, 2011. Our rescue dogs are provided with the best possible vet care, a safe place to stay and the love they deserve. We do not have a shelter facility. Our volunteer foster homes take these wonderful dogs into their homes until we find their forever families. Our organization is devoted to helping dogs in need and works diligently to find them loving forever homes where they can happily live out the rest of their lives.

Our Adoption Process...

1. The first step is completing our application at

2. If your application is approved, you will be contacted to schedule a home visit interview. We will bring the dog over for a visit and conduct and interview with you.

3. Then we will both take a day to consider whether it is the right home for the dog.

4. If everyone is in agreement, the adoption will take place and you will sign an adoption contract and commit to giving our rescue dog a forever home.

We are a non-profit organization. Our adoption fees are considered a donation to the rescue and they range from $150-$300. Our fees help us cover our dog's vet care, food, supplies and other expenses to keep the rescue running. All dogs must be spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, tested for heartworms, vaccinated and wormed as appropriate for age and checked for fleas prior to or within 30 days of adoption.

Note: There are no refunds on adoption fees. Adoption fees are considered a donation to the rescue and are tax decuctible.
