Story
English bulldog free to good home. I got her when she was 8/9 months old. (She’ll be a year this month). We have made some progress with her potty training but she does still have occasional accidents in the house. I have one other dog, and my parents have 2, She has nipped at all 3 of them on separate occasions. I cannot chance having her biting the other pups or my Nieces when they come to visit. (She’s never been around kids since I’ve had her, However the home I got her from did have children. A Home WITHOUT pets/children is highly preferred/needed. She needs/loves lots of attention. She loves cuddles and wants to be touching your face allll the time.

Story
Hey there, I'm Aubrey, the stunning 30-pound, 1-year-old female Plott Hound mix with a heart as beautiful as I am! I had a tough beginning, I was surrendered to an overcrowded kill shelter in Texas when I was just 4 months old because my owner had too many dogs. I was very, very scared, but thankfully Project Hope saw the pleading in my eyes and they saved me!I’m going to be honest with you here - I am a total sweetheart once I warm up to you, but I am just terrible at meet and greets! I don’t know what happens, I just get so nervous that I start acting all shy, and a lot of my amazing personality just flies right out the window. I really need an understanding family that knows it might take a few days for the true me to shine through. Then I’ll be on you like white on rice, I want nothing more than to be with my person. I love other doggos, but I haven’t had the pleasure of making any feline friends yet. I would probably do best in an adults-only household. I'm a spunky girl who loves nothing more than running and playing, so I'd thrive in a home with a fenced yard where I can stretch my legs. But hey, even if you don't have a yard, as long as we can go for walks and play together, I'll be one happy pup! After all that fun, I'm all about snuggling up with my favorite person for a nap. I'm potty and crate-trained, spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccines, so I'm ready to bring love and laughter to my forever home.My adoption fee is $300, and if you have any questions, just shoot an email to projecthoperescue@gmail.com. Ready to make my dreams of a furever home come true? You can fill out an adoption application by visiting our website at www.projecthoperescue.org. Let's start making memories together!

Story
Hey there, I'm Skymir, your lively 1.5 year-old male black lab mix, weighing in at a solid 40 pounds. My tail never stops wagging, and my heart is as big as they come. I found myself alone in a southern shelter when I was just a puppy. I was so scared, but thankfully a kind rescuer scooped in to save me. Now I’m here in Michigan (being fostered near Coldwater) looking for my forever family!I live for those moments of butt wiggles and playful romps with my foster siblings. Chewing on a good, hard bone? It's my idea of heaven. My playful spirit shines through in everything I do, from chasing squirrels to snuggling up after a long day. I'm a quick learner, especially when treats are involved! Training sessions are my jam, and I'm always eager to please. Sometimes I get a bit too excited and might jump up, but with a little patience and guidance, I'll get the hang of it.At first, I might be a bit reserved, but give me some time, and I'll warm up to you in no time. Crisp mornings call for cuddles in my cozy crate, while sunny afternoons are perfect for basking in the warmth of the sun. I would thrive in a home with a FENCED-IN YARD where I can run and explore to my heart's content. Whether I'm playing with another dog or keeping an active family on their toes, I'm happiest when I have company.I’m fully-vetted l, housebroken, crate-trained and ready to join your family with an adoption fee of $300.

I absolutely love to play, especially when I’m frolicking around with other doggy pals. I’ll definitely need a FULLY FENCED-IN YARD so I can run and play until my heart’s content. I’m also longing for a fur-sibling to share all my adventures with.I’ve got all the skills for family life down pat. From crate-training to housebreaking, I’m all set and ready to go.

Story
Hey there! I'm Daniel, the happy-go-lucky 9-month-old, 55-pound male black Lab & German Shepherd mix eagerly looking for my forever family! At only 4 months old, I ended up in an overcrowded southern shelter with a broken leg, but now I’m all healed up and ready for my forever home! I don’t want to brag, but I’ve been told that I would make a GREAT therapy dog! Also, get a load of these EARS - I move them independently like antennas, it’s very charming.Some important things about me - I’m good on a leash, enjoy going for car rides, and get along with everyone I meet. And, boy, do I LOVE water! You should see me swim! People say that I'm really smart and that I learn really fast. The secret to me learning new things is TREATS!! I love treats! Since I'm still a kind of young, I do need someone who wants to teach me how to be the very best dog I can be, make sure I get lots of exercise, and challenge my super smart brain! And, when it comes to chillin' out...I’m a great snuggler and love to settle down for a good nap. Give me a nice cozy dog bed and I'm set for the night!As you can see, I'm a handsome fellow who loves kids and other dogs. I haven’t been exposed to cats yet, so I might meet them with curiosity, but I think we’d be ok. Since I am still a youngster, I have a lot of energy, so need a family who will take me on walks or runs, play fetch, frisbee and tug of war, or best of all....I would really LOVE another canine sibling that I can play with! I will definitely need a home with a fully FENCED-IN YARD. I love playing with other fun dogs and respectful kids! (I'm trying hard to learn not to jump on people for attention). Due to my youthful energy, homes with babies and toddlers are not a good fit for me right now.I’m housebroken, crate-trained (though it’s not my favorite place to be), fully-vetted and my adoption fee is $350. I am currently being fostered in South Bend, Indiana, but if you're in Michigan, don’t worry, we can make it happen. So, what do you say? Are you looking for a tall, dark, handsome, smart, fun, sweet and energetic guy to join your family? If you have any questions, please email projecthoperescue@gmail.com.

Story
Hey there, humans! I’m Nohemi, the sweet and loving 3-month-old, female mixed breed (possibly a Miniature Pinscher mix) weighing in at a whopping 12lbs! My journey started off a bit ruff – I was found by myself as a stray when I was only 8 weeks old and ended up in a southern kill shelter, but thanks to some kind people, I've been given a second chance at happiness here in Fort Wayne, Indiana. And hey, if you're in Michigan, no worries – my foster Mom is willing to meet you in Coldwater!  Now, I am mostly blind in one eye due to an ulcer I had when I came into the shelter, but let me tell you, it doesn't slow me down one bit and I have no trouble navigating my surroundings. I zip around like the wind and tackle every adventure with gusto. I even walk great on a leash already! Sure, loud cars make me a tad nervous, but with a loving family by my side, I know I'll feel safe and secure. The only time I bark is when I am ready to go out and play. Speaking of which, I will require a FULLY FENCED YARD so I can run and play until my heart’s content.  I absolutely adore hanging out with other dogs – big, small, you name it! My foster siblings include Rotties, Pitties, a Terrier and a Chihuahua! I get along with all of them like peanut butter and jelly. I haven’t had the pleasure of making any feline friends yet, but my gentle nature suggests that we would get along just fine. And I love to give kisses to all the kids I meet. But watch out, I do still have those sharp little puppy teeth. I'm already a pro at sleeping through the night in my cozy crate (I never make a mess in it either!) and I’m starting to get the hang of potty training – I do need to go out about 5 minutes after I eat. And boy, am I a foodie! Show me a tasty treat, and I'll happily sit and give you my best puppy dog eyes. But, alas, I do like to jump when I get really excited. But who can blame me, I am still a puppy and new things are exciting!  I'm all set to join my new family – fully-vetted, microchipped and ready to spread love wherever I go. My adoption fee is $350. Questions? Shoot an email to projecthoperescue@gmail.com. Ready to take the plunge and make me a part of your pack? You can visit our website at www.projecthoperescue.org to fill out an adoption application. I can't wait to meet you and start our paw-some adventures together. Let's make some memories – furever!May 20, 2024, 3:40 pm
