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!

Cats
We also have a few cats available for adoption. Please click here to see their information.

 

Current Dogs Available for Adoption

Beanie

Name: Beanie
Breed: Chihuahua, Short Coat/Mix
Age: Senior
Sex: Female
Size: Small
Color: White/Brown
Description: Beanie is an older Chihuahua who has lived with adults who were very patient with her. She adored them and is a bit confused in rescue, but is giving it a game shot. Beanie takes a while to warm up to strangers, but once she trusts you she is a cuddle bug and quite devoted. She will do best in a quiet, adult home where she can be cherished. Beanie keeps her crate clean, but prefers not to be in it, as she can be quite loud when crated. She would make a wonderful companion dog for another low-key, small dog. For questions or a preadoption questionnaire, please email Cheryl at cheryladamshb1@gmail.com. Beanie has been spayed, vaccinated, tested for heartworm disease and will be microchipped upon adoption.

Blitz

Name: Blitz
Breed: Retriever/Terrier mix
Age: Puppy
Sex: Female
Size: Large
Color: Black
Description: Blitz is a very special, loving and sweet puppy who really loves her people. She loves romping in the grass with the kids, and gets along well with everyone she meets.

Budd1

Name: Budd
Breed: Poodle, Toy/Shih Tzu
Age: Mature Adult
Sex: Male
Size: Small
Color: Black/White
Description: Budd lived with an older gentleman and he really misses his best friend. Budd is good with other dogs, and has always lived with another dog, and since he is smaller than the resident housecat, he gets along well with him also! Budd would do best in an adult home, and though he would probably be good with visiting children aged about 12 years and older, he likes retirement aged people the best! A little quieter and more sedate – more like himself! Contact Cheryl cheryl.hwb1@gmail.com for questions or a preadopt questionnaire.

Carly

Name: Carly
Breed: Lab/Spaniel mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Female
Size: Large

She loves to play, especially likes swimming and chasing toys. She is doing well with house training but not yet 100%, previously an outdoor dog, and crates for the workday. Carly is very smart and loves to be worked with and learn something new. The pride on her face is evident as she masters a skill. Carly is being treated for heartworm before placement, and then is ready for her forever family to find her. Preferably a home with a yard to play in, someone to walk her, continue with training to show off her skills, and someone to pet and cuddle her.


Cisco

Name: Cisco
Breed: Chocolate Lab
Age: Mature Adult
Sex: Male
Size: Large
Description: Cisco is a happy go lucky 9 year old chocolate lab. He was a farm dog most his life and is enjoying the luxury of the house now. He does well in the house but does need some work on house training. He does well in the kennel when gone and at night. Cisco needs a fenced yard as he was surrendered for chasing cars. He loves to play ball and enjoys walking, snuggling, and playing. He is good with other dogs, cats and kids. He is afraid of loud noises like pots/pans and guns, so he would not make a good hunting dog. For a 9 year old he has a lot of life left and is very healthy. He loves to go hiking and putting his paws in the water. He is neutered and up to date on all his vaccines. Anyone who would adopt Cisco would have a best friend forever. He truly has a heart of gold. Contact Kristi at  kristi.adams@hotmail.com with any questions.

His two favorite things in life are treats and his people. He gets very excited when his people come home!

Age: Mature Adult
Sex: Male
Size: Large
Color: Red
Description: Fred is a big, teddy bear of a lab, who loves everyone, but is a big bumbling guy who needs some leash training!

Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male
Size: Large
Color: Black/Tan
Description: Goofy is a big, lovable, goofy clown of a dog! He finds the humor in life, and makes all around him smile at his happy attitude. Goofy is too bouncy and “mouthy” for younger children, and will benefit from some obedience work. Goofy would benefit from training, but is an affable guy who does want to please.. Who wouldn’t love living with their own living Disney character?! Contact Kristi at Kristi.Adams@hotmail.com for questions or a pre-adoption questionnaire.

Griffin

Name: Griffen
Breed: Terrier/Yorkie mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Male
Size: Small
Description: Griffen acts like a little monster at the Adoption Events, but really isn’t a bad boy at heart.

He loves his chosen person, and loves sitting in their lap and giving love and attention. Contact Ali at Ali.AdamsHB1@gmail.com for more information or for a preadopt questionnaire.

 

 



HollyName: Holly
Breed: Aussie/Cattle dog mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female
Size: Medium
Description: Holly is a girl who came from an abusive past. This is just a guess on our part, but she cowers when you pet her, flinches when you move quickly, and spends most of her day trying to figure out how to get close to you for pets and love without making waves and drawing too much attention to herself. She is just a sweet, sweet dog, very gentle and for now very mellow, although we hope with love and a good home some of her puppy side comes out and she gets peppier. She has always had a yard, so does not know leash walking that well although she sure is game to learn. She is good with kids and other dogs, and seems comfortable around cats although please supervise her introductions to them, as she does not live with cats, just passed them at the shelter. Holly needs a patient home with a lot of love, and she will reciprocate 100%. You may contact Ali with questions ali.adamsHB1@gmail.com

Hoopla

Name: Hoopla
Breed: Pitbull Terrier mix
Age: Puppy
Sex: Female
Size: Large
Color: Brown
Description: Hoopla is very people oriented and loves attention. She is a little shy at first, but warms up quickly and wants to be your best friend. She is started in her house training, but she is still a baby and will need to continue with her training with scheduled outside potty breaks and the use of a crate. Hoopla tries to do things right – she wants to please. You may contact Ali with questions at ali.adamsHB1@gmail.com

IzzyName: Izzy
Breed: White Shepherd
mix 
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female
Size: Large
Color: White
Description: Izzy is a one year old female white Shepherd mix, left to fend for herself and picked up by the pound. Luckily it’s a pound run by kind hearted volunteers who advocated like crazy for this gentle dog to get into a rescue. She came in skinny, heartworm positive (being treated), and obviously had several litters. Now it’s time for her to be a cherished family member and be loved. She does well with children and other dogs, has not been around cats so we don’t know. She is picking up quickly on the house training (previously an outdoor dog) and crates in an extra large crate for the workday, as she likes to stretch out. She soaks up the love and attention and turns right around to give it back. Her smarts and sweets combine to make her a heck of a dog. Please email cheryladams229@gmail.com with questions.

Jeb

Name: Jeb
Breed: Coonhound
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male
Size: Medium
Color: Black and Tan
Description: Jeb is a happy go lucky hound that loves to take walks and play in the yard. Not a hunter but a lover, he is house trained, crate trained, good with other dogs, and just a great dog. He never meets a stranger and would adapt to any family. Jeb came to us very skinny (still needs to gain some weight) and flies had been eating on his ear but he is looking and feeling so much better and looking forward to a life indoors. Jeb would do best in a home with a yard for him to be in, and being a Hound, although he doesn’t bay often, when he does you hear it, so a house rather than an apartment type setting would be best for him.

 
KnoxName: Knox
Breed: Yellow Lab (mix?)
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male
Size: Large
Color: Yellow
Description: Knox is mentally still very puppy, as all young Labs are. He loves kids and other dogs, is house trained and crate trained. He does like to test new people with the crate by singing the song of his people in there with hopes he found a softy who will let him out :) Knox does not do well with cats, and if your yard is fenced it needs to be a high one (6 feet), or he needs leash walks/runs. He’s an active, happy, outgoing dog who seeks a home willing to exercise, train, and love. He is this golden boy with a huge love of being outside, meeting new people and dogs, and a puppy in a grown up body. Knox has the smarts, loyalty, kind heart and joy that Lab lovers seek. Please email kladams4545@gmail.com with questions.

Liam

Name: Liam
Breed: Hound/Mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Male
Size: Medium
Color: Brown/Tan
Description: Liam is a very loving dog to his adult people, especially those who are able to set and maintain boundaries – especially with meeting other dogs while on the end of a leash. He does best walked with a Gentle Leader head collar, and needs a person able to redirect and reward when Liam gets overbearing. The biggest difficulty is that it’s difficult to determine which dogs Liam may react to, so introductions have to be made carefully every time. He gets along ok with the dogs in his foster home, but he knows he will never be top dog there, and follows the rules like a champ! Liam plays with most of his foster friends, puppies on up to larger sized dogs, he just needs people to remind him to behave! Contact Cheryl cheryl.hwb1@gmail.com for any questions.


Lucy

Name: Lucy
Breed: Spaniel mix
Age: Adult

Description: Lucy is an absolute love. She is gentle and sweet, and a great all around type family dog.

Breed: Pekingese/Purebred
Age: Mature Adult
Sex: Female
Size: Small
Color: Black/Tan
Description: Magic is an older Peke who originated in a breeding facility, and she carries some of the emotional scars of her life there.

Once attached, Magic is a very loyal, loving and devoted companion, who loves to crawl into a lap and give kisses. She bounces around her foster mom’s feet and wants to be wherever she is, and has a heart so willing to love. Magic would be so happy having someone to love her!

She is a very smart, easy to live with dog who is quickly learning the house training (previously an outdoor dog), crates for the workday, and loves to go for walks. She loves toys, sometimes mistakes the kids toys as hers so you get help teaching your kids to pick up after themselves.

Very social for a breeder dog, Music loves children, dogs and cats alike.

Nicky

Name: Nicky
Breed: Age: Senior
Sex: Female
Description: Nicky is an 11 year old alumni who was returned when her home life changed drastically and her family was no longer able to care for her. She has been raised with children, is housebroken, and an easy dog to live with. Nicky tolerates the other dog in the foster home, as well as the older cat, but would do fine as an only dog also.

Penny

Name: Penny
Breed: Pug/Beagle
Age: Mature Adult
Sex: Female
Size: Small
Color: Tan
Description: Penny came to us when she began acting out when she felt she was not getting enough time and attention as her family grew and became busier with work and time commitments. Without her people home enough (at least in Penny’s opinion!) she began barking and soiling in the house = one unhappy girl! We have found she does much better when there is someone able to be home with her for most of the day, probably not more than a 6 hour work day, and also someone willing to look past her darling face and set some boundaries on her behavior (and possibly use a crate!) Penny loves people, gets along well with other dogs, and is such a character, she will make you laugh. Please contact Cheryl cheryl.hwb1@gmail.com for more information or for a preadopt questionnaire.

Poppy

Name: Poppy
Breed: Chihuahua mix
Age: Mature Adult
Sex: Male
Size: Small
Description: Poppy is extremely loving and loyal to his adult people, but takes a while to warm up to strangers. He does ok with other smaller dogs, but his napoleon complex sometimes sends him charging after a larger dog. Poppy would enjoy a home with one or two adults, and would love a fenced in yard to keep him safe from himself and his turbulence with large dogs. Love him or hate him, Poppy is quite the character! Contact cheryl.hwb1@gmail for any questions or a preadopt questionnaire.

Sally2Name: Sally
Breed: Aussie/Spaniel mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Female
Size: Medium
Description: Sally is a beautiful dog who had a bad experience during her time as a stray. She is the absolute sweetest dog with people and does fine with smaller dogs, but was hurt by a bigger dog and is now fearful of them, which shows in her being reactive. She needs an adopter willing to do socialization and training classes with her around bigger dogs. Sally is a quieter dog anyways, she likes walks but is happiest just hanging around the house with her people. She’s a homebody. She is tolerant with visiting kids but prefers adults, likes her crate when left alone, and is house trained. She’s had some bad experiences and needs a patient, loving, homebody owner to come and fall in love with her so she can shower that person with love.

 
Sandy2Name: Sandy
Breed: Golden/Collie type mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female
Size: Large
DescriptionSandy is a very friendly dog who enjoys the visiting kids and other dogs. She passed a shelter cat test but has not lived with cats, so we expect her to be ok but recommend supervised introductions. She loves her toys, seeing the leash come out for walks, and playtime. Sandy is doing well with house training and is crated when left alone. She’d love a home with someone who runs, or a home with another dog to play with. Please email Cheryl at cheryladams229@gmail.com with questions.

TurboName: Turbo
Breed: Chihuahua, Short Coat/Mix
Age: Mature Adult
Sex: Male
Size: Small
Color: Black/White
Description: Turbo is a cute little middle-aged Chihuahua who came to us from a breeding situation and is slowly getting used to life as a loved housedog. He would make a wonderful companion dog for a lower-key, smaller dog who would be willing to help show him the ropes. He ignores the cats. As with most former breeder dogs, Turbo’s housetraining is a work in progress, though he’s improving, and he does his best to keep his crate clean. He loves to be carried around and introduced to new people and new situations. Perhaps the world is less scary from a human’s height? Turbo is a friendly little chi who will make a wonderful companion for an adult family with a bit of patience. For questions or a preadoption questionnaire, please email Sherri at sweeperjunkies@comcast.net. Turbo has been neutered, vaccinated, tested for heartworm and will be microchipped upon adoption.

Name: Willis
Breed: Lab
Age: Senior
Sex: Male
Size: Large

Description: Willis has previously lived a hard life as an outside dog, and is really loving the comforts of home life, inside, complete with his own bed and air conditioning, and a foster mom who gives him lots of love and attention. He is quickly picking up all his house manners, and feels like he’s hit the jackpot in his golden years.
