Dogs

Every week we have a wide variety of dogs/puppies up for adoption. The dogs have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and are microchipped. Please go to our FAQ page to learn about our adoption fees, adoption requirements, policies, how to adopt, as well as other things to consider before you adopt.

A pre-adoption questionnaire must be filled out by all prospective adopters. You can get a copy of the pre-adoption questionnaire by emailing the contact person listed in a dog’s bio or you may complete one at an adoption event. Our pet adoptions are held every Saturday from 11:00 – 3. If you would like to inquire about our animals (besides coming to our pet adoption) you may contact us via email. Please keep in mind that we are volunteers and have families and jobs but we will respond to your email as quickly as possible, especially if it is an emergency. All HB dogs, unless otherwise noted, are indoor dogs.

A word about ages: We do our best to accurately represent the ages of the dogs in our program. Sometimes we have good information on that, many times we do not. Working with sending shelters, our experience, and our vet we strive to make our “best guess.” There may be times when paperwork will not match what we’ve stated. Sometimes the birthday may be miss keyed in paperwork from the sending shelter such as a dog that is obviously an adult whose paperwork states they are 18 days old or a puppy who is listed as being three years old. In addition, many dogs that come into rescue have not had the highest quality diet and their teeth may appear “older” than they really are. Sometimes it may be a difference in opinion. Sometimes it may be an error in communication. While we try to be accurate we cannot offer a guarantee on an animal’s age.

HB Ages

Foster Homes Needed: We are always looking for new foster homes. If you have ever wanted to help, now is the time! To learn more about fostering, please go to our Foster Facts page. The dogs (and cats!) thank you for considering becoming a foster mom, dad or family!

Fonzi
Name: Fonzi

Breed: Beagle
Age: Senior
Sex: Male
Size: Medium
Description: Fonzi is a great older gentleman with a charming personality who is looking for a forever home for his retirement years. Don’t think that he’s content to while away the hours on the couch, though. Fonzi has all of the normal beagle curiosity and wants to be in the middle of the action, just like everyone else. He can be a bit shy in new situations, but he takes his cues from the other dogs, so a companion dog to show him the ropes would be best. Fonzi loves other dogs, gets along well with cats and thinks the toy box is about the best thing ever. His housetraining is almost there and he crates well, though in his foster home he is crated with another dog for companionship. Due to Fonzi’s age, we feel that a home with older children or adults might be best, as the chaos that comes from young children might be overwhelming for him. He would be fine with visiting children, however. Fonzi has the beagle bay, which we think is charming, but he only uses it when he has something important to say. This boy will truly convince you that adopting a senior is one of the great joys of life. Fonzi has been vaccinated, treated for heartworm disease in November of 2015 and microchipped.

She gets along easily with other dogs as well, both in home and when out being walked. Gretl does have a history of ear infections in one ear, is otherwise healthy.

Milo
Name: Milo

Breed: Coon Hound
Age: Adult
Sex: Male
Size: Large
Description: This is a courtesy post for a friend of the rescue.
Meet Milo! He is a four year old , 85 pound coon-hound. Milo is a sweet, sensitive, smart boy. He loves to play and be active. He gets along with most other dogs, but does not do well in a large group play setting (dog parks are usually fine, doggie day care is too overwhelming). Milo has not been used for hunting, but no doubt would be an amazing hunting dog (witnessed by the number of squirrels he has caught). He currently does not have a dog-sibling, but would love it if he did. Milo struggles with anxiety and does not do well with a lot of transition and unpredictability. He would do best in a quiet home with NO KIDS. He is a good watch dog and protective of his space, and makes a great security system. The other side of this is, it takes him some time to settle when new folks come to the home. Milo has responded well to training and can sit, stay, lay down and shake a paw. He is in good health and up to date on all shots. He currently takes an anti-anxiety pill once a day which runs about $8 a month. He may not need this if he is in a quiet environment, our home is not. We would love to stay connected to Milo and still be a part of his life. If his future adopted parents were willing, we would love to take care of him if they were to go out of town and help out when needed. Interested parties contact Angie at 612-501- 2986 or agwaiz@yahoo.com

Odie
Name: Odie

Breed: Chihuahua
Age: Adult
Sex: Male
Size: Small
Description: Odie is a 6-7 year old Chihuahua/Corgi who is well house broken and will do best in and adult home. He can be resource protective over food or objects he considers his, so he does not share with others – especially children. He is a quiet guy who loves sitting on the back of the couch watching the world go by. Odie does best if fed in a separate room, or in his own crate, as he does not want to share his meals with anyone. He can be the most loving and gentle dog, seeking love and companionship, but sometimes he just wants to be left alone. Odie’s an easy to live with dog, while he lives with adults and other dogs, even with the family cat. Please contact Cheryl cheryl.hwb1@gmail.com with questions or for a preadopt questionnaire.

Razzle
Name: Razzle

Breed: Belgian Malinois/Husky/Cattle Dog Mix
Age: Adule
Sex: Female
Size: Large
Description: Razzle is rambunctious, happy total mixed up mutt (best guess is Malinois/Husky/Cattle Dog?) who is all about having fun and enjoying every minute of life! She loves other dogs, loves to play with toys, loves to run, and is up for any adventure her family wants to take her on. She is working on her house/crate training and learning what is expected of her. She is wicked smart, loves food, and is eager to please so she makes training an absolute breeze but she’s just never had a home to spend time working with her. She is not good with cats…she thinks they are great, furry chew toys and would likely be best in a home with older kids due to her nature of herding/heel nipping (not out of aggression, out of play). Razzle can jump a 6 foot fence with ease so needs a home who is committed to lots of serious daily physical and mental exercise, supervision/leash in the yard even with a fence, and even better a commitment to a doggy sport like agility (she would be outstanding!). This girl is an absolute gem for someone who is willing to put the work and time into training her and the commitment to getting her the exercise she needs. Please contact Laura laurahhk9@gmail.com with questions or for a preadopt questionnaire.

Red
Name: Red

Breed: Doberman Mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male
Size: Medium
Description: Red is a young adult male Doberman ( mix?), an unclaimed stray who loves all people, and female dogs, can be a little selective as to which male dogs he likes– but hoping being neutered helps with that. This happy, bouncy dog is up for adventure and loves walks/runs, hunting squirrels in the yard, and being petted by anyone who happens to be near him. He is doing well with house training, about 75% trained, and crates for the workday. Red arrives June 11th and we are looking for someone who wants to adopt him then.

Rocko
Name: Rocko

Breed: Pit Bull Mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male
Size: Large
Description: Rocko is a big headed, big hearted Pit Bull mix. He is about 1-2 years old, 70 lbs, and for a big, tough looking boy he sure is a teddy bear. Rocko is great with other dogs though his first love by far is people. He let’s the other dogs get rowdy and play and while they’re distracted he snuggles up to his people for some love. He loves to play, loves his walks, and loves to swim and once he’s tired content to crash next to his people for cuddles and naps. After spending most of his young life being bounced around from home to home, Rocko shows significant separation anxiety when he is alone. Rocko needs a stable, experienced home willing to invest in a very sturdy crate and with the time, patience, and willingness to continuing with training to reduce the anxiety. He is working on his house training and manners in the house. He is the kind of dog who leads with his huge heart while his brain scrambles to keep up. He is young, highly trainable, and worth the extra effort in training though. We are all very in love with this big lug! Requirements: No cats. Home committed to training and working with the separation anxiety. Please contact Laura laurahhk9@gmail.com with questions or for a preadopt questionnaire.

Rover
Name: Rover

Breed: Lab Mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Male
Size: Medium
Description: Rover is a short, solid, very shy Lab mix who was a stray, but whatever he escaped from must have been bad. His skin crawled when he was touched, he would shrink away from contact, and avoided moving at all for fear of getting in trouble. This poor guy was scared to death. He went to a fantastic foster who is making enormous strides with patience and love. Rover absolutely loves being out in the fenced yard, would prefer a home with a fence with his adopter too, and does best following another dog for some confidence building. He is fine with cats, fine with kids although seeks out adults because they are more predictable, is learning to walk on the leash and to trust people. He is drawn to men, was comfortable with the foster dad right away. Rover is seeking a patient home willing to continue to invest time and patience and love into showing him this world is a good place. Please contact Katie kladams4545@gmail.com with questions or for a preadopt questionnaire.

Savannah
Name: Savannah

Breed: Bloodhound
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female
Size: Large
Description: Who’s looking for a new best friend? Savannah is a 2.5-year-old bloodhound, who is just about as perfect as a hound can be – raised with older children (12 and up), great with other dogs and surprisingly fine with cats. She is even housetrained! Savannah is, however, a big girl at over 80 pounds, so she will need some room to move around, along with a safely-fenced yard for daily exercise. She was surrendered to rescue when the wife of the home went back to work and the family didn’t have time for her daily exercise and attention. Her ideal home would have a family with a sense of humor, patience (or if you prefer, more stubbornness than she has) and a love of all things hound. If you don’t know anything about bloodhounds, please research the breed first, as their “all-nose” reputation is well-founded. They are bred to do a job, and they do it very well! Savannah adores people, and seems to have a particular affinity for men. She’s very affectionate, responds well to food (great for training!) and knows basic commands. Because she bonds so quickly to her people, and has been several homes in her young life, she is a bit of a diva, but she’s so sensitive that she’s easily corrected. She knows she’s special, and thinks the world needs to recognize it too!Please contact Jackie thedogmama@gmail.com with questions or for a preadopt questionnaire.

Shaylee and Caylee
Name: Shaylee and Caylee

Breed: Chihuahua
Age: Adult and Young Adult
Sex: Both Females
Size: Small
Description: Shaylee and Caylee are a mother (smaller one)/daughter combo who came into animal control together, and are so relieved to be in a foster home. The only thing better is a home of their own. These girls are so gentle, and loving, and quiet, and calm. Happiest place is on the bed, all snuggled up together, or in your lap, quietly sharing space. They like walks, love to soak up the sun, and do well with people, dogs and cats. Shaylee is about 5 pounds, Caylee about 12 pounds. We are seeking a home for them together if possible, they sure do love each other. House training is going very well and they are crated for the workday. Due to the small size, we are seeking a home with older kids/adults. Please contact Cheryl cheryl.hwb1@gmail.com with questions or for a preadopt questionnaire.

Star
Name: Star Thumbelina

Breed: Papillon/Chihuahua Mix
Age: Puppy
Sex: Female
Size: Small
Description: Star Thumbelina is looking for a home who embraces a challenge. This little girl has some unknown medical issues that may or may not need attention down the road, right now it’s undetermined after quite a few vet visits. Her adopter would be assuming responsibility and costs for these procedures if they chose her. She has a deformed knee, and while the hope is that as she grows it will lengthen and then she just needs a patella correction surgery, her hind leg may end up needing to be amputated at some point. Her adult canine teeth will also need to be pulled due to a mouth malformation as an adult. This peppy little puppy has some zip to her, she runs and wrestles and plays and does steps, learning the house training and is crate trained. At 4 months old and about 6 pounds, she won’t be very big, we think she is a mix of Chihuahua and Papillon. The needs she may have (likely will have) are expensive and will have some significant recovery time for her leg. She promises to make you laugh, love, and enjoy life every day she’s with you. Please contact Cheryl cheryl.hwb1@gmail.com with questions or for a preadopt questionnaire.

Tornado
Name: Tornado

Breed: Chihuahua/Papillon
Age: Puppy
Sex: Male
Size: Small
Description: Tornado is 4 months old. He is an energetic little guy who is much happier running circles around your feet than he is sitting on a lap. He is bright and a quick learner, doing well on his potty training and completely wonderful when left in his bed in his crate as long as he has some chew toys to occupy him. Tornado does well with children, but may be too mouthy (likes to nibble hands) for young kids. Tornado thrives in a chaotic foster home with lots of activity and will be happiest in that type of life. Tornado has hyperkinetic movements (tics) in his rear legs which he may outgrown, but it doesn’t slow him down in the least. If you are looking for a fun, active, companion who isn’t much into cuddling, then Tornado is your dog! Please contact Cheryl cheryl.hwb1@gmail.com with questions or for a preadopt questionnaire.
