Canela would like to introduce herself as a 65lb, five year old staffordshire terrier/mastiff/american bulldog mix and a lady of strong convictions; she knows what she likes! Have a couch or king sized bed? She's there! Like doing movie marathons that last all weekend? She's in! Have another dog in the home? Yes please! Canela is a homebody; all about quiet time with her people. An exercise buddy, she is not. But a chill companion, she most certainly is! Now that her puppies have been adopted, it's Canela's time to shine. She has been spayed (no more puppies for this girl!) and has started her heartworm treatment. Canela's ideal home would be quiet and low-traffic; not lots of people coming and going. She likes to keep her circle of loved-ones tight. She was very shut down coming into the foster program after years of being on the run as a stray and will need a family that is patient and will give her time to adjust and gain her trust. Some non-negotiables; Canela will require a fenced-in yard, and another confident dog in the home, as she does better when she has someone to emulate when she is unsure. No kids, as their noise and high activity levels make her too nervous. Canela enjoys occasional silliness with her foster dog-siblings and will play-wrestle with them and/or a toy or two. Getting her exercise in at home is more her speed, versus going out in the neighborhood for walks. But she does enjoy cruising around town riding shotgun! Though she might have a few "must haves" in her forever home, she's a pretty low maintenance girl. Happy to just be. On your couch. Or your bed. She's not too picky! Her adoption fee is $250. show less

Freddie Mercury is a 6–7-year-old 10 pound snuggle muffin who resembles his namesake although he rarely sings.  Freddie is a true Michigander who came to us from Genessee County Animal Control. Freddie loved the sand at Lake Michigan beach, but the water was a bit cold for his tiny feet.  He loves to be petted and will wait patiently for about 15 seconds before nudging your hand to continue petting him. He is laid back but always ready for a jaunty walk.  Freddie is house trained, crate trained and rarely makes a sound.  His first bark was at a deer crossing his path on a walk. Freddie does ok out in public seeing other dogs but prefers not to interact with them, and has no interest sharing his home with other animals; canine and feline. He is fine with children who visit but his love of naps may not be the best fit in a home with children who want to play with him for long periods of time. Freddie has the cutest perky ears that are always listening.  He likes to be near his people.  He loves his crate and will walk in during the day just because it has a nice fluffy blanket in that is perfect for his nap.  Freddie is up to date on vaccinations, is microchipped and neutered.  Whoever adopts him will have a loyal companion who will allow you to scratch his back and ears whenever you want to. Freddie’s adoption fee is $275 show less

Meet Max! This handsome bully mix found a great home in 2020, but he came back into our care in 2021 after losing his adopted dad. Originally from Tennessee, Max traveled to Michigan with his brother at just 8 weeks old! This copper-colored stunner weighs in at 45 pounds and is about a year and a half old. High energy and intelligent, Max is eager to please and very food motivated, but he needs time and patience to help him trust strangers.   Max loves playing with his foster sister, snacking on fresh veggies, and a good game of fetch. A mix of physical activity and mental stimulation will help keep him relaxed and snuggling in his down time. Currently, Max takes doggy Prozac to help with anxiety around changes and meeting new people, particularly men. He would love a gentle and patient adult-only home with a fenced in yard. Dog experience and an interest in building his confidence through training are a must. Max loves to walk during quiet times of the day to smell the neighborhood. He has great recall, knows basic obedience, and even practices with his muzzle. He has met with our local Humane Society trainer and they are excited to continue their work with him and his new family!   Max can be selective about his dog friends but loves to have a playmate. He would do best in a home with a stable, confident dog who doesn’t mind his energetic antics. He is excited to meet kitty friends but needs help learning good boundaries with them.   We know that special family is out there who can work with Max and help him develop confidence and live a happy life.  Could that be you?  Max is fully vetted (neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped). His adoption fee is $250, and you can apply to adopt him at www.rescueofhope.com/adoption-application show less

Nellie didn't get a fair shake in life ... Not even a little. But we have promised her the rough days are behind her. She was found as a stray in Detroit and came to us after some pretty serious long-term neglect. We think she is around 8 but her teeth were in such terrible shape it's hard to tell. We are calling her a shepherd mix because we have to pick something but her tooshie wrinkles are the cutest thing you have ever seen. For real. Ever. Except for when she rolls around her back singing about how much she loves her yard. Oh and except for when she tries to catch treats in the air and they land right in front of her. Sorry, one more thing. She talks to you about everything. She tells you when she's happy your home, when she's hungry, when she has to go potty. She's an amazing conversationalist.     Nellie is super loyal and affectionate with her people. Once she trusts you ... You are the light of her life. She does best with slow introductions to new people so her ideal retirement community would be a home where guests give her time to warm up or where she has her own space while new people are there. She likes to be the boss of the other dogs in her foster home so she would do best with larger dogs who don't mind being bossed around but would LOVE to be the center of someone's world as an only dog. Nellie is completely potty trained and crate trained. She has had her dental completed and is current on her medical care and vaccines. She will get spayed next week and would love to be settling in with her family. Her adoption fee is $175.  show less

Are you looking for a running partner? Do you need help finding lost items? Always wanted someone to do almost anything for you just for a simple treat? Meet Sable! Sable is appropriately 7 months old, around 25 lbs, and appears to be a whippet beagle mix (Whipbeagle) who has endless energy, the best floppy ears, and a non stop sniffer! Sable is currently in a foster home where she has been busy learning her manners, taking lots of walks, and chasing her foster doggy siblings around the yard. Next to training time with her foster mom; running, sniffing, playing tug of war and squeaky toys are her favorite things! She is such a smart girl and would love someone who would enjoy to be involved in her continued training. She'd even probably accel at agility or scent work and would actually make a great detective! Sable could benefit from having a like size to larger, tolerant dog buddy in her forever home, but cats and smaller dogs are probably not such a great idea. Children should be older as she’s super fast, loves to chase, jumps really high and needs to continue to learn not to accidently puppy bite in play! This spunky girl should have a physical fenced in yard to safely get unleashed family play, exercise and plenty of sniffing time without her incredible sight and scent hound instincts taking her places she shouldn’t go. If you have the time to give her the exercise, training and love she needs, this pretty girl will give you her complete devotion forever. Sable is crate trained and potty trained. She is spayed, microchipped and is all up to date on her vaccines. Her adoption fee is only $275. Apply for her now at www.rescueofhope.com.  show less
