My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Hoagie!! We just love this smushy faced boy, he needs an owner who will help him to grow his confidence in the world; introduce him to new experiences and provide slow social introductions to other dogs and people.  We don't know Hoagie's full background, but it's clear he was badly injured before joining Last Hope.  His back end is weak, and x-rays have shown old injuries that have since fused.  Hoagie does take prescription medicine for this and will need to continue on this long-term for pain/joint management.

Hoagie might be a fit with another young, playful dog around his size or he would love to be your #1 guy.  He is not a fit with small dogs and is also not a fit with children under 16. He doesn't mind cats, as long as they have their own dedicated space should they want a break from him. Hoagie will love playing in your fenced in back yard, and then cuddling on the couch...but be warned, he's a snorer! Hoagie can be very wary of men, so he needs a patient and kind owner who is prepared for introducing him slowly to new people. 


Hoagie's adoption fee is $250 and includes his neuter, microchip, current vaccinations and preventatives plus a FREE basic obedience course at Cedar Run Pet Boarding in Hiawatha.  Last Hope requires that all animals be kept as indoor pets only, be altered and current on vaccinations and preventatives. Our adoption process includes reference and background checks, a vet check and a home visit as well as multiple meet and greets for dogs. Please submit an adoption application for consideration at
