Story
🐾 Meet Turk! 🐶❤️ Turk, a 2 1/2-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix, was rescued from an IL animal control euthanasia list almost 2 years ago, and he's been on the lookout for his forever home ever since. This loving pup is dog-friendly 🐕 and okay with cats 🐱, but he might prefer older kids for companionship. Turk can be a little slow to warm up to new people, so he needs an experienced owner who can give him the patience and understanding he deserves. But once he trusts you, he'll be your loyal companion for life! Turk is a water-loving pooch who adores swimming 🌊, and he walks beautifully on a leash 🚶‍♂️. He's also a quick learner and loves training sessions, so he's ready to impress with his skills. Turk would thrive in an active home, and he might even be a candidate for dog sports 🏅. But wait, there's more! Turk plays hard and cuddles harder! 🎾💤 Whether he's chasing balls or curling up beside you for a cozy cuddle session, Turk is all about spreading love and joy. If you're looking for a devoted furry friend to join your family adventures, Turk could be the perfect match for you! Adopt Turk today and give him the loving home he's been dreaming of. 🏡❤️ 💥Apply at: HAH Adoption Application 💥Follow us on Facebook: HAH Facebook

Story
Meet Lessa (white) & Lucinda (golden)! DOB: 8/2/21 These two precious pups are searching for a loving home together with a compassionate family and a fenced yard, where they can feel safe and secure. Lessa and Lucinda were rescued from a puppy mill & have had a rough past, but they're ready to embark on a journey of healing and love. Despite their traumatic experiences, Lessa and Lucinda are incredibly sweet and gentle souls. They may take some time to warm up to new people, but with patience and understanding, they'll blossom into devoted companions. Lessa is still learning how to play, while Lucinda is a playful ball of energy! Lucinda especially enjoys playing fetch with chews, bringing endless joy to those around her. They both have a soft spot for cats too! Both Lessa and Lucinda get along well with other dogs. Lessa's play style involves jumping all over the other dog and being in their face, while Lucinda prefers calmer play with her canine companions. These homebodies prefer the comfort of the familiar over adventurous escapades. They'll thrive in a home where someone is present more often than not, providing the stability and reassurance they need. Please note they can take time to warm up to new people & places. Additionally, they are best suited for a household without children or with older kids who are dog-savvy. If you're willing to give them plenty of love, time, patience, and understanding, Lessa and Lucinda will respond with steadfast loyalty and companionship. If you think you're a good match for them, we encourage you to apply. 💥Apply at: HAH Adoption Application 💥Follow us on Facebook: HAH Facebook Lucinda & Lessa’s adoption donation fee together is $650 (Zelle or a cash Only) & includes spay, dental, Heartworm & tick disease negative, up to date on shots, microchipped, dewormed.
