Poor Irene has been diagnosed with Cushing disease and will require cushings medication for the rest of her life. With her Cushing Irene pees alot very frequently. She needs someone that will take her out every couple hours to pee. She sometimes needs to pee in between so foster mom has xlarge size pee pads inside which  she will go on. Also the same with overnight. She can't hold it an entire night even though she is on meds. She is on 2 different kinds of meds and requires a test every couple months to make sure meds are regulated. She is so sweet and friendly. She walks perfectly on a leash. She likes to be petted and be with people. She is great with other dogs and pigs. ** LOCAL CENTRAL PA APPLICATIONS ONLY **Her adoption donation includes spaying, vaccinations, implanting of a microchip, application of flea meds and worming.

Story
Isabel is looking for a hero. After being rescued from a hoarding situation, Isabel has no idea what it is like to live in a home, and she is very, very shy. She got the chance to go to a foster home for a long weekend, and her foster says that once Isabel got to know her, she was very silly, playful and puppyish when outdoors, but, she had never seen a tv, a microwave, or even a linoleum floor, so learning about the indoors is a work in progress. However, Isabel would love a home where someone is willing to be kind, gentle and patient with her. We have video to show you just how much fun this stubby-legged little dog can be, because, unfortunately, she is likely to hide from you when you come to visit. We know it is a tall order to consider adopting a dog who is so very shy, but we know Isabel is worth the investment of time and love, so if you are looking for a very sweet dog with very short legs, but a very big heart, you might be the hero Isabel is waiting for.

Story
Phoebe - Basset Mix - young (10 months as of February) - female/spayed - 40 pounds - black and white short coat With her hopeful big smile, her floppy ears that look as if she dipped them in a can of paint, and a movement style that her foster mom describes as “lumbering, clumsy, literally no grace to her movements”, Phoebe is as irresistible as it gets. This sturdy, long, low-rider came into care after inspiring a torrent of concern in rural West Virginia. Since then she has melted hearts with her gentle, sweet nature and her abject love of snuggling. Training-wise, Phoebe is what we call at Hedgesville Hounds a “blank slate.” This only means that she was never taught. But she is an eager and willing learner. Character-wise: Phoebe possesses wonderful traits that we cannot “train” into a dog. She is inordinately gentle, loving, responsive, and kind by nature. Adopter-wise: Phoebe will flourish with adopters who understand her need for consistency, security, safety, and encouragement, and will themselves find joy in guiding her. What does this mean in practical terms? It may help to start with Phoebe’s back story. Phoebe was abandoned in rural West Virginia in the depth of winter. She was cold, hungry, and sick, but she eluded capture by the very people she longed to approach for help because she was also frightened, and she did not know how to “bridge the gap” and get to safety. Eager to help a struggling dog who could not come to them, dedicated Animal Control officers set a humane trap, and Phoebe, who was very hungry, entered it. It is hard to imagine what might have gone through Phoebe’s mind when officers approached the trap once she had been captured. And for us, that moment exemplifies the most touching part of Phoebe’s character. The dog who emerged from that trap was…. grateful. Overjoyed, relieved and grateful to be warm and to be held. Cuddling and snuggling are mainstays of what we call Things Phoebe Wants Most in the World. Phoebe is a beautiful example of a dog’s capacity to trust and love humans even after those bonds of faith have been broken. At Hedgesville Hounds we marvel every day at the courage and faith that inspire both dogs and people to bridge the gaps of broken bonds, to begin over, and to learn together how to build a lasting bond. Phoebe’s adopters will need to be that kind of special people to this wonderfully special dog. They will need to continue to support Phoebe and guide her development in bridging gaps. Training-wise, Phoebe understands “sit” and “crate”. She is not keen on “crate” but she bravely cooperates. She is working diligently on her house-training skills, which she never learned because it was not possible for her. At the time of her capture, Phoebe suffered from a severe and aggressive urinary infection of longstanding, as well as Lyme disease, both of which we are treating. We suspect that whoever abandoned her might have confused her medical condition with a behavioral issue, and imagined that she was too stubborn to learn manners, and that may be why she was dropped off. Phoebe’s UTI is responding to treatment, as is her Lyme disease. She was recently spayed, and is fully vaccinated. Phoebe loves the dog and cat in her foster home. She has not yet met any children, but her foster mom is confident that Phoebe’s sweet and gentle nature would apply to children. Probably not to pet rodents, based on observations of Phoebe’s reaction to squirrels and rabbits. Her eye contact is open, soft, and direct. Phoebe’s energy level is fairly low indoors, and moderate outdoors when playing with her foster home’s resident dog. Ideally, Phoebe’s adoptive home would have a fenced yard, as she is still learning leash skills. Her humans ideally would be at home more than they would be away from home, and would lead a fairly consistent and quiet lifestyle. By this, we don’t mean that they need to whisper and tip-toe, but they will need to be aware that Phoebe is soaking up training while she relies on “reading the room”. She instinctually recognizes the difference between happy loud laughter and angry or mean human exchanges. We do not recommend that Phoebe reside in an apartment or townhouse because her bark is a big, bellowing howl. She does not use this voice often, but when she does it is impressive. Phoebe is currently welcomed on the sofa, and the reassurance that she is joyfully and lovingly welcomed there is slowly translating into her confidence to make longer, braver forays into the world of new people, with whom she is initially timid. Phoebe rides well in a car. If you are picturing your life with your new dog as one in which your dog adapts immediately to social gatherings, walks confidently past people on the sidewalk, and enjoys selecting things at PET Smart, Phoebe will not be able to support those goals - yet. She may never be able to do those things. But what we know for certain is that Phoebe will love her new family with immense devotion. And that her sweet and gentle nature will reward a positive and patient training style. In many ways, Phoebe is still a very young puppy with all the vulnerability and innocence that implies. For an adopter who sees her honest, eager, responsive, and incredibly loving heart as an opportunity to build a lifelong bond, Phoebe guarantees that she is willing to keep bridging the gaps. click here to send a non-binding application

Story
When Irish eyes are smiling, does that mean they are happy? Or maybe they had too many pints at the pub? My eyes are smiling, and I am a non drinker, just want to have full disclosure here! Even though my eyes were smiling in these pictures. I was desperate for help for my little one, Lewis. You see, he was dying...full of internal and external parasites he really had no fight left in him and I knew it as his mother... so I used my Irish eyes to get us saved. AND IT WORKED!! Our lives are do amazing now, Lewis is alive and well after some very intense care, and ADOPTED INTO AN AMAZING HOME!!! I am not ever producing more babies, so it is all good!

Story
This cute young man was thrown out at one of the favorite dumping areas to survive on his own. There are a few dogs there that people have been trying to catch but since he was new, he was easy. He has not learned how mean people can be yet. Santa is as sweet as can be and very well behaved. We took him to the vets and he is HW negative and is now neutered and UTD on vaccines. We will also microchip him. He is fine with other dogs and all people. He seems to be housetrained, as well. We are only guessing but he looks and sounds very much like border collie/basset hound and in that part of the mountain, it is likely. If you would like to add this sweet guy to your family and be his hero, please email omlc7@hotmail.com or dogs4mylife@gmail.com and we will send our info and application.
