Story
Sweet boy Wiley! This 12 month old pup is SUPER sweet!! He loves everyone! He's good with kids and other friendly dogs. Cats are unknown so we're recommending no cats just because of his breed and he may chase! Wiley's mom is a Norwegian Elkhound... his dad was the area's free roaming Rat Terrier mix. We assume because of his small size dad was small! Thankfully the owner allowed us to spay mom and they decided to keep her. Wiley is around 20 pounds. We know the pictures make him look bigger but he's not. His foster mom carries him around one handed with ease! He's a silly, playful boy who just wants to be with his people! Wiley, like his name sake can be an escape artist and will try to escape any breach in fencing so he does require secure physical fencing! He unfortunately was born under a barn and never had boundaries and as you all know ..that's NOT a good thing! Just like his dad he WILL roam if given the chance! Wiley would do fantastic in a home with children! He loves children and does very well with dog savvy, respectful children! ❤ When he's tired he will snuggle right up in your lap or right next to you! Preferably in your lap! Wiley is crate trained. He's crated at night & while foster family is not home and does well. Although he wouldn't protest sleeping with any humans! He likes to be with his people! Wiley is housebroken too! Bonus!! He will excited piddle occasionally but only if he hasn't been out for awhile and his bladder is full! He's a great little pup who just wants to be loved! ❤ Here's a note from his foster mom: We absolutely adore this little guy! He is such a love! His sweet & silly personality makes him the perfect little companion for just about any family looking for a smaller dog! Wiley is fully vetted including his neuter, age appropriate vaccines, rabies, bordetella, de-wormed, flea & tick treated, on heartworm prevention, and microchipped We adopt within a 4-hour radius of Toledo,OH Our adoption fee is $400 Note: We DO require a secure physically fenced yard for Wiley! https://www.deaconshope.org/adoption-application.html

Story
Behold Alazay! The furry giant, part mastiff, part bulldog, and all-around massive! Don't let his size fool you, he's a total cuddle bug! He absolutely LOVES kids of all sizes! He's a senior pup, but boy, does he love a good soak in the bath! You'll find him chewing away at rope toys and begging for butt scratches, but his favorite pastime is getting belly rubs. Attention is his thing, and he's not afraid to ask for it. Good for this guy as he needs to be the only pet in the home- more attention for him! He's all about playing and frolicking around, but watch out for his obsession with tennis balls – it's kind of his Achilles heel! A gentle giant, he's the perfect cuddle buddy for your lazy days. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Application: https://adopt.animalsfirst.com/signup/664c2ea080ba55b07a0e6299

Story
Meet Duke! Duke came to us originally from another shelter in 2021, and was adopted. Then, in 2023 he was returned through no fault of his own. He’s been in here ever since. He’s now almost 7 years old and has spent most of his years in shelters. He does not get along with other animals, which has really diminished his prospects of getting a forever home. Duke is a goofball, and a shelter favorite. When he’s doing tricks (he knows sit, lay down, shake, and speak!) he will scooch backwards while “sitting” to really emphasize that he is, in fact, sitting down. He also walks great on a leash, and LOVES to go for car rides! He even loves bath time here at the shelter! This boy loves toys, and especially loves to *destroy* stuffed toys. However, because he also loves to swallow toy parts, we have banned him from having them here at the shelter. He’s had a couple of surgeries to repair his intestines because of damage done by squeakers! He still gets Kongs, and other toys that don’t come apart. Duke has had most of his teeth removed, has “old man bumps” on his body, seems to have lost some of his hearing, and drools A LOT, but he makes up for all of that with the amount of love he shows, and the amount of fun he has. Although he’s spent so much of his life in shelters, his spirit is always up and he loves living life to the fullest!

Story
Meet Cheerio! Cheerio is a very sweet girl that recently learned that she loves to snuggle with humans! You could lose yourself in her icy blue eyes, and she'd love to also gaze into your treat-pouch.... oops, we mean eyes! Cheerio is very treat motivated and is learning some basic commands as well as how to walk nicely on a leash. One of her favorite things to do is sit in a human's lap, preferably in the sunshine and in the grass after a walk. She gets along with some of her siblings in playgroups, but if you have a dog already, we recommend a meet & greet before adoption. Cheerio doesn’t seem to be a fan of smaller children, so we would recommend ages 5 and up in her new family. Cheerio is spayed, microchipped, and is up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations. She is too young to test for heartworms. apply here: https://adopt.animalsfirst.com/signup/664c2ea080ba55b07a0e6299

Story
Meet Thor! Thor is a very sweet Staffordshire Terrier that is nicknamed “Potato” by our staff. He was recently returned after being adopted from GHHS last year. After living with cats the whole time he was with the family, he suddenly decided he hates cats and no longer wanted to live with them. If you are not a cat, Thor loves you and wants to be your best friend. He loves tennis balls, fetch and a good booty-scratchin' session! He has a very happy tail that is constantly wagging (and sometimes knocking things off of low tables!). He loves humans of all sizes and gets along with dogs just fine. Because of his size and energy level, we do think he should be in a home with children over the age of 5. Our Thor does have a high prey drive, so we recommend no small critters like cats or rabbits or chickens in the vicinity. We do require a meet & greet if you have another dog. Thor is neutered, microchipped, up to date on all of his vaccinations, and tested negative for heartworm.
