Meet Chickadee, a one year old Staffordshire Terrier/Cattle Dog mix (our best guess) who is as friendly as she is pretty! Chickadee will walk up to every person in her path to introduce herself- giving kisses with reckless abandon. She is a very happy social girl, who wants nothing more than to be by your side every waking moment (and will happily sleep right up against you at night too!). She is the very definition of a Velcro-dog, your personal space just so happens to be her personal space as well! She will be your number one snuggle buddy; so long as she gets her morning and evening exercise in. At least one mile for each walk, please! At a year old, she is still very much a puppy and learning what is (and what is not) appropriate to chew on, but is potty trained and crate trained. She is still working on not jumping up on people and keeping her mouth to herself (tends to be mouthy when excited), so even though she loves them, no little children for Chickadee. She will absolutely knock them down and nibble on them (with exuberant love). Because of rental breed discrimination, she does require a family who owns their own home and does not utilize an electric fence. She chews on any tie out or tether, so a physically fenced-in yard is needed. A consideration for potential adoptive families; she has been diagnosed with a lifelong virus that makes her more susceptible to illness, specifically upper respiratory infections, and will need immune support (and potentially extra veterinary care) to keep her at her healthiest self. Chickadee rides well in the car, has nice leash manners out in public and is very food motivated- she would love to further her learning in training classes! She currently lives with a cat who she plays fairly rough with, and would thrive as a only dog so she doesn’t have to share any of her people’s attention! But the right dog (who is mellow and lets her be the boss) might work too- meet and greet required. Chickadee is spayed, microchipped, current on all vaccines & preventatives, and her adoption fee is $250. show less

Meet Lola - a beautiful, silver brindle, 2.5 year old, 55 pound Staffy Mix with a squishy face, and adorable underbite. Lola is a sweet, talkative, silly girl whose tail is always wagging, and is looking for a forever family who just "gets" her. What she loves: car rides to anywhere are Lola's jam! A walk in the park or a hike in the woods is just ducky. Burrowing under the blankets to snuggle up with her people is the cat's pajamas. Treats and snacks are the bee's knees. Being with people is so much the bomb-dot-com that Lola needs her people/person to have a work-life situation where she is able to be with them more often than not. Additional plusses: this girl is smart, eager to learn and please, and grasps new things quickly - she already knows Sit, Shake, Down, and High Five, and is working on Wait, Stay, Leave It, and Off. She is house-trained, crate-trained, and is doing well with walking on a leash. The challenges: Lola is young, has energy, and has not had a lot of experience in the wider world, so her family must be committed to training, regular play, and exercise. She does great with meeting new people - and kids - but because she loves other dogs SO MUCH and is overly interested in small animals like cats and squirrels, she can come in HOT (like a comet!) around other animals. We have seen her interact beautifully with other playful dogs, including puppies, and she does great with her two foster (dog) siblings, but she will need training to learn to curb her enthusiasm, and acclimate more calmly in new situations. Lola’s zest for adventure will also mean that she must have a physical fenced-in yard. Lola is spayed, microchipped and current on her vaccines. Her adoption fee is $250. Apply to adopt Lola at rescueofhope.com/adoption-application/  show less

Some of us envision bringing home a new furry family member and can't wait to incorporate them into our daily lives - both in and out of the home. We want to show our good doggie off in public. We'll take them on walks, find dog friendly parks and restaurants, create an instagram account or tiktok featuring this newest love of our life....     Ranger's not your dog for most of that(yet).  Ranger needs a minute to get to know you, but given the chance he is fiercely loyal and protective to his people. He loves other dogs and would do great with a confident friendly playmate. Do you love routine and consistency? Are you up for the challenge of daily dog training? Are you happy hanging out at home? Are you looking for a running buddy? Do you have a camera and need a devilishly handsome new subject? If you answered yes to some of the questions above, you might be a great fit for Ranger! Ranger is nearly a year old, 60-70 lbs, house trained, potty trained, neutered, and up to date on vaccines. Due to his size and adolescent instincts, a home without children or young visitors is preferred. Also, due to breed restrictions often imposed by rental properties, renters will not be considered. To adopt Ranger apply at www.rescueofhope.com/adoption-application, his adoption fee is $275. show less
