Hope’s information came to me from a television production company that is producing a new show for Animal Planet about dog rescue and adoption called Last Chance Highway:
Hope is a very calm Lab mix. This poor girl had been struggling on her own as a stray for so long that she might never have had contact with people. The moment she was rescued she just reverted into herself and showed no signs of being social. She has NEVER shown signs of being aggressive towards people or other animals, but she is very shy and will need a family that is willing to be patient and help this poor girl break out of her shell. Our rescuer got Hope vetted and spayed and found out that remarkably Hope was heartworm negative! A wonderful foster mom has taken her in so this loving dog gets the and attention she needs. Now several months later, Hope looks like a completely different dog and she is 100% healthy. Hope’s tail has started wagging and she is slowly, but surely building up a trust in people. Hope is an incredibly brave and resilient dog and she just needs a loving family to help her become more social.
We have rescued a “special needs” dog named Hope and we are hoping to find her a loving family that would be willing to take on her shyness and help her break out of her shell and become a beloved family member. Hope was rescued down in Mississippi and she is currently there in a foster home where she is being house and crate trained and interacting with other dogs, people and kids. Because of stricter spay and neuter laws and the overall better treatment of dogs and pets, our rescuer only adopts dogs to families in the North East through the rescued dog transport service PETS, LLC. The transport service drops of newly adopted dogs to families in PA, NJ, NY, CT, and NH.
UPDATE: Hope has found her forever home in New York!
