Story
Young, smart, buffed Ned 🧡 has blossomed in his stable, consistent environment. He is finally ready for a family of his own. His life began as a fearful stray and he's transitioned into a loyal, happy friend. He's a pack pup and prefers the company of dogs and to sleep with his trusted human. He loves his 70lb female foster sister. Approx. 2-3yrs old, neutered, UTD on shots, microchipped, comes when called, takes treats softly, rides in a car well, good with baths, great on leash, uses a dog door, great house manners. His favorite part of the day is running off leash in the forest. He learned to swim a few months ago. He climbs mountains, leaps over logs and gallops through fields. He will bond if you take him on adventures. He is NOT a lap dog. Ned needs a patient human with no small children, an adventure lover and another dog (calm energy/well exercised) willing to welcome a skittish little dude with patience. If you have questions or would like to meet Ned, please fill out an application at hopeshavenfriends.org and his foster mom will make contact. This guy is fantastic and deserves to have the best adventures, lots of love and a safe place to call home. Ned is one of the many fosters that found safety with Hopes Haven apply at www.hopeshavenfriends.org

Story
We are the scruffy and ADORABLE puppies who were put over the fence at our foster mom's house in the COLD! You all know the story.... the house on the block that all the stray dogs and kitties magically gravitate towards?? Well, apparently they don't all get there by walking... we were actually just put over the fence into the yard and left there!! Luckily our sweet German foster mom knew EXACTLY what to do when she found us.... love us, give us shots, get us spayed and neutered and FIND US FOREVER HOMES! So that brings us to YOU. We are super cute and teeny chi/terrier mixes?? and we are looking for UBER responsible and loving families... not the kind who dumped us, the ones who understand that we are ALIVE and NEED LOVE AND FOOD AND PROTECTION. So if that is you and your family, you better apply like RIGHT NOW, cause these cute faces will be adopted very very quickly. ADOPT..........DON'T SHOP!!! OUR LIVES DEPEND ON IT!! Local adoption fee is $350 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $600 (includes transport to your area, $50 temporary fuel fee will be included)

Story
  Meet Allison- also known as Smooshy! She got her nick name due to the adorable wrinkly face she has when excited or confused. She is a sweet, snuggly, active little puppy that will fill your world with kisses and snuggles! She plays all day with the dogs in the foster home, and will run around with the big dogs in the yard for a bit before insisting on coming back in for snuggles and a nap, or maybe snuggles while Netflix binging and then a nap! Treat motivated, Allison has been easy to train and will sit and go potty without issue. A squirmy worm, she is still working on ‘stay’…Allison is not interested in the cat in the foster home, and will walk on by with no issue. She cannot, however, ignore the squirrels that run around above her in the trees. Sweet Smooshy will fill your world with delight! Allison is being fostered in The Dalles.  If you are interested in her, please apply for her here:    https://form.jotform.com/60136667457159 ##1862157##

Story
Introducing Travis!! Travis is a sugary sweet chihuahua mix with a real zest for life. He is just as enthusiastic about playing with his toys as he is about his displays of affection like cuddles and kisses. Travis is very funny and keeps us entertained with his zoomies and personal version of Floor is Lava. He sprints from beds to carpet, to rugs and back again. It is absolutely adorable. He truly has a zest for life that shows every day. As hard as he plays, he also puts himself down for deep, cozy naps to refresh. Travis is a big fan of curling up and snoozing for an hour- or three! Travis has some vision and hearing differences which require some getting used to but he is not bothered by them in the least. He does appreciate night lights, however, and can startle when surprised. He has never been aggressive. He has been a total joy to have around and has stolen our hearts with his cute, playful antics. Travis impressed us by figuring out our normal schedules very quickly. He is ready for work time in the home office and is always excited for story time in the evenings. Travis is working very hard on his potty training and shows improvement every day. His perfect human would have patience and understanding, along with a dedicated and gentle hand to encourage graduation from potty training to "trained." Overall, he is an absolutely exuberant little guy! Travis loves human interaction, playing with his similarly sized foster siblings, having plenty of toys to throw around, and a cozy crate to spend the night. Travis can be vocal when playing as he tosses his toys in the air and chases them down again. He would love for his people to join in on his games and play! Travis is a little guy, about 7 pounds with a personality larger than life. He is neutered, has had a dental cleaning, all of his shots, and is ready for his forever home. Travis is certain to steal your heart like he did ours. to meet him please fill out the application on OFOSA.ORG and his foster mom will be in-touch with you to meet him.

Story
We welcome you to meet Howard the troll! He is an elusive creature, rarely seen unless you try to cross his bridge, or sit at the dining room table that he's living under. Much like a real troll Howard can be somewhat hostile towards humans. Howard would much prefer to be out in wilderness, he honestly could have been a feral cat living in a colony somewhere wild and free. Howard loves other dogs and is great with cats but, unless you are some kind of super human who really works for his love he's likely to avoid you. He’s also much like a teenager who doesn’t want anything to do with you, unless of course he wants something. Howard didn’t have the best start to life, he lived his first few years in a hoarding situation. That is why he feels most comfortable with other animals and thinks humans are jerks. I mean really, can you blame him? With the right super person the best of Howard will come out. Howard needs a home that understands that he may never fully come around, that he won't be their lap dog or snuggle buddy. He would love to just live in a corner of you house, spend time in your yard, play with your dogs and eat your food. If you are looking for an awkward roommate who you only see every now and again, Howard is the weird dude you're looking for!
