Facts about Curly

  • Breed: Retriever (Unknown Type)/English Setter Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10535063

Curly is a special boy looking for a special home! He and his siblings were found living in a corn field down near Martinsville and they had obviously been on their own for some time.

Curly has some major trust issues and is going to need someone with a lot of patience and love to help him become a confident well adjusted dog. He is terrified of children and has some issues barking at men in his foster home as well. He adores his foster mom but lives in a busy family for teenage boys and is doing fine.

UPDATE from his foster mom 11/25: " He is doing much better. He has warmed up to my husband & isn't terrified of kids anymore. Just doesn't prefer them. He did just fine yesterday with 14 people over for Thanksgiving. He's come a long way."

Curly likes toys, absolutely must live with another dog, and should not have any issues around cats (his sister is living with one). He REQUIRES a five foot fence or higher. Please do not apply if you do not have one.

If you are interested in this sweet boy please be aware we are very concerned that if he should get loose, he will never get caught again. Curly does not try to escape but when scared will run, not think. Time and patience are going to be the best things for him along with a secure fence!

About Hope Marie's Fund

About Our Rescue Group...

Hope Marie's Fund is an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue for dogs, cats and other small animals. We primarily focus our rescue efforts on animals with medical or behavioral needs that are preventing them from getting the care/attention they need in our local shelters. It's through our assistance that they are able to get healthy both mentally and physically and find permanent, loving homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold a monthly adoption event on the last Saturday of each month from 12-3 at 4247 N State Road 135, Franklin, IN 46131.

Our Adoption Process...

At HMF our adoption process requires potential adopters to first submit an application expressing their interest in a specific pet. Once the application is approved a meet n greet will be scheduled for the potential adopter to meet the particular pet they are interested in adopting. If the meet n greet goes well then a home visit will be schedule and that is when we will bring your new pet home to you. Our adoption fees are $300 for puppies under 6 months of age (includes spay/neuter at appropriate age); $175 for adult dogs; $100 for mature/medical/special needs dogs; $100 for kittens under 5 months of age (includes spay/neuter at appropriate age); $50 for adult cats; and $35 for mature/medical/special needs cats. Our small animal (i.e., guinea pigs, hamsters, etc.) adoption fee is $25.
