Duchess is a sweet very laid back dog that just goes with the flow. She is housebroken, non-destructive and happy to be inside on a dog bed. She is great with other dogs big or small, non-reactive to cats, super sweet with children and adults. Duchess is shy at first, but warms up very quickly. She loves treats and is very receptive to training. She deserves her own forever home.  Duchess was rescued from a backyard breeder/hoarding situation and the owners were court ordered to relinquish the dogs. Eight all together. Hogan’s took Spice, Spirit & Duchess and helped a get the other five into other rescues. Spice loves being in a home and really appreciates being with her peeps and fosters siblings. She is a super smart dog and just wants her forever family. Duchess is learning very quickly how to be an inside dog, she has shown no signs of destruction, lets her foster family know when she needs to go outside to do her business and loves being with her foster family.

All of our rescues are temperament tested around children of all ages, small and large dogs and cats. They all have basic training, IE; sit; down, come and walking on a lead. We are not a shelter, we are a rescue and all of our rescued dogs are kept in individual foster/volunteers homes. This gives them sometimes their first taste of having a family and being part of that family. Also, it provides us with the understanding of each individual rescue to match them to your family lifestyle and dynamics. As soon as we receive your application back, we will phone you to set up a home visit/meet & greet. If you are out of our area, we would request another rescue and/or veterinary office complete the home visit.

All of our rescues are completely vetted prior to adoption. Also, completed prior to adoptions are heartworm treatments as needed, any medical conditions treated (IE; allergies, demedex, etc.) and any surgeries for dogs coming into the rescue injured (IE; car accidents, etc.). Below is the vetting that all of our rescues receive prior to adoption. We only pull dogs from shelters and approximately 80% of our rescues come into the rescue heartworm positive. Those rescues are treated for heartworms prior to adoption.
