Dutch answers to Boo-Boo. He is approximately 8 years old and is a rescue from a serious hoarding situation where he spent all of his time in an outdoor pen. He has come a long way since we rescued him and he is doing really well. He lives with 3 others dogs at his foster home and does great with them. He is sweet and loveable and loves to be petted (which wasn't the case when we first got him). He loves his treats which he didn't even know what one was when first introduced to them. Now all you have to do is say treat and he goes running down the hall and is the first one in the kitchen waiting for it. 

He wasn't potty trained, but has come a long way and the vet said it will get even better once he is neutered on Sept. 15th. Anyone who is looking for a sweet and affectionate little dog, he is the one for you. He still gets scared when there are loud noises, but he isn't as bad as he used to be. He is so comfortable now being an inside dog with air conditioning and sleeping in a comfortable bed every night with his brothers. He does sleep all night and only gets up when you do. He will follow you wherever you go. He still is scared of a leash but is slowly getting adapted. He doesn't run from you if he gets out of the house by accident. All you have to do is call his name and he comes right back.

About H.A.P.P.E

About Our Rescue Group...

HAPPE (Homeless Animal Protection, Placement & Education) is a local, all-volunteer, non-profit dog rescue group started in 2002. We are dedicated to helping save innocent dogs that are in shelters, were found as strays, or whose owners can no longer care for them.

HAPPE does not have a facility and relies on an incredible group of fosters to provide a loving environment until we find each dog a forever home.

We not only work hard to match our dogs with the right home and family, but also educate dog owners & the public about responsible pet ownership. Every dog deserves a second chance. Will YOU be a HERO to a homeless dog?

Our Adoption Process...

Our Adoption Process

At HAPPE we are dedicated to finding loving, forever homes for the dogs in our care. We work very hard to match the dog with the right home and family.

Once you find one of our Available Dogs dogs that you’re interested in learning more about, just contact us and one of our Adoption Coordinators will be in touch with you. They will talk with you about the dog’s personality, whether they are good with other dogs, cats, children,etc. They will also discuss your needs and make sure that the individual dog would be a good fit for your home and lifestyle. If everything points to a good match, we’ll arrange for you to meet the dog. After that, if you can’t wait to have this dog become part of your family, you’ll fill out our Adoption Application.

Once your application has been received, our Board of Directors will review it and we’ll get back to you with any additional questions or to let you know that you’ve been approved!

Please note that we are an all-volunteer organization and take each application on an individual basis, so an exact time frame can not be given for a decision.

Once an application has been approved, a trial adoption will be arranged. This trial period is an important step in making sure that you and the dog are a good fit together. We ask that you give at least one full week (7 days) to determine if you have found your new family member.
Home visits are required and will be made before or during the trial adoption by one of our Adoption Coordinators.
