I'm Gunner! I'm a sweet (and handsome!) 8 month old Beagle looking for my forever home. I've got a pretty typical beagle temprament in that I like to be busy. It would be great if I found a family who would take me to obedience training, play with me outside, or even take me on long walks or hikes in the woods. I'm working hard on learning to trust my people and building my confidence. Before I came to HoH, I didn't always get a consistent or safe reaction when I messed up. My foster mom is working hard to help me learn new things in a safe way. Positive reinforcement only obedience training will help build my bond with my people and my confidence at the same time. I'm doing awesome with house training and I do well on my leash. I sleep nicely in my crate at night, but I might protest a little if I'm in it during the day. I'm even picking up commands that my foster mom is teaching me! I get along well with other dogs and am learning not to be quite so bouncy around kids. Sometimes loud noises (think air conditioners or law mowers) make me nervous. Really, I'm just a lovey dovey guy who needs a hug and a family who can help me grow. My foster mom says I jump like a gazelle so I definitely need a yard with a nice tall fence. No invisible fences for me, please. Getting zapped is not ok! I am up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and neutered. My adoption fee is $250. Apply to adopt me here:

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.
