Facts about Lady Hope

  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: #1234

I was rescued from a hoarder in Lucern. I was the last dog left from this raid at the pound and was scheduled to be destroyed. I lived my entire life on a chain with very little contact with humans and other animals. I was not even fed for days at a time. I'm currently working on trusting humans and other animals. I freeze when someone touches me but I don't growl or snap. I basically ignore other animals because I'm unsure, but don't growl or snap at them either. I haven't barked yet since I was rescued because I'm still learning how to be a dog. I m a work in progress and would do best in a household with adults that have the time and dedication to teach me how to be a dog.

Our Adoption Process...

All potential adopters are carefully screened through our adoption process:

- If you're interested in an animal, we'll ask that you fill out a questionnaire, which we will review to ensure you and the dog you are interested in adopting are a good match.

- You will be asked to submit to a "home safety check" to determine the level of safety and adequacy of the area for the dog.

- An adoption fee is required and you must sign the adoption agreement, which ensures that if, for any reason, you are unable to keep the dog, he/she to be returned to Forte Animal Rescue only.

- Finally, we personally deliver your new family member to your home.

- Any additional donation would be greatly appreciated, and this portion will be tax-deductible. The donation goes to pay for all of the other animals in our care, many of which come to us with injuries or medical conditions that require treatment. Forte Animal Rescue survives solely on donations and it is for this reason that the adoption fee is nonnegotiable.

- Forte Animal Rescue reserves the right to cancel the adoption process at any time if the home situation or adoptive family has been misrepresented, if certain information was withheld, or if the dog is determined to be a better match with another family.
