Meet sweet Cooper, a nature-lover and Yogi at heart (you should see his Upward Facing Dog pose) who is looking for his forever family! Formerly known as Shy Boy and terrified when he arrived in Michigan, Cooper is showing more and more of his loveable, gentle, silly, and curious personality each day. Cooper has made excellent progress in his foster home, but will still need time, consistency, and lots of love and patience from his forever family to heal his heart. His forever family must have experience with helping shy dogs like Cooper learn to trust and develop confidence only using positive training methods. As Cooper’s fear response is to run, hide, and make himself as small/quiet as possible, his new home must have a physical fenced-in yard. A smart boy who wants to please but is young and only just learning about being part of a family, Cooper will also require behavior/manners training to understand what is expected of him. Cooper feels most shy around young(er) men and is sensitive to the energy of young children, so he’d prefer to become part of a family with older children and lots of female energy. Cooper is cool with cats, LOVES other dogs, and will do best in a home with a laid-back, but confident canine companion to show him the ropes. Cooper will be happiest as part of an active family – he adores going for walks, following his nose, and exploring the outdoors – but will then happily go home to relax and hang out. Cooper would be a fantastic hiking or running buddy. A lab mix and approximately 1-2 years old, Cooper is fully vaccinated, microchipped, neutered, and is also house-trained and crate-trained. Cooper’s adoption fee is $250. To adopt Cooper, apply at www.rescueofhope.com/adoption-application show less

Jig is an 80 lb. shepherd mix who made the trip to Michigan from Humane Society of the Delta in Arkansas. He is a majestic boy, a gentle giant and great with humans of all shapes and sizes. He is a bit of an introvert and likes lots of alone time throughout the day. That all changes when it's time to go for a walk -- he gets SO excited and will jump up as soon as you make a move for your coat. And jump is not an exaggeration, he really gets some air!  Jig loves all the interesting sights and sounds outside and sprints to find the source when he smells something interesting. Although he enjoys being introduced to new people, he is not a fan of most dogs he meets while out and about, and shows his fearfulness by barking at them. Jig can't get enough of digging treats out of his snuffle mat. It's one of his favorite things to do. Every now and then he gets in the mood to play and when he does, he's all in! Some of his favorite things to do are playing tug of war, chasing balls, and trying to catch treats in the air. Jig will need a quiet home with a fenced in yard.  Jig is heartworm positive and will have his first treatment at the end of January, and will need a family who will support him through his second treatment at the end of February. Costs for the treatments are paid for by Hearts of Hope. Jig is a super sweet boy who you can't help but love! He is neutered, chipped and up to date on vaccines. His adoption fee is $250. show less

Rocket is a beautiful, 3 year old blue heeler, australian shepherd mix that joined us from the Humane Society of the Delta in Arkansas in January. Rocket had a hard time adjusting when he first arrived, it took us 4 days to just get him out of the kennel but since then he's been surprising us with how well he continues to settle in. Rocket is house and crate trained, has learned sit, down, kennel, place, here and walks pretty well on leash. He does great with the resident dog and they love to play; Rocket will usually nip the resident dog's legs or neck to initiate play. While a total love bug with his people, he's wary of strangers and prefers to check them out on his own terms. When he gets uncomfortable he will growl, so we are looking for a quieter home without kids.  Though it takes time for him to settle in, Rocket is food motivated and wants to please. He will require someone who will continue to work with him on his confidence and continue to socialize him (not the meeting every human and dog around kind, but the getting him comfortable in different environments, sounds, smells and sights). He's not super high energy for a cattle dog mix, but does enjoy a good walk and LOVES to run around. He turns into a kid on Christmas when he gets to run free so a fenced yard would be wonderful. Rocket is looking for a home with another confident and playful dog, someone who is interested in continuing to work with him and preferably has herding breed experience, no first time dog owner and someone who is willing to advocate for him with strangers and is comfortable telling strangers "No" when they want to pet him.  Rocket is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines. His adoption fee is $250. Rocket is going through heartworm treatment currently. His exercise levels need to be kept to a minimum for the next couple of months and should he find his home during this time, his adopters will need to take him to his final treatment appointments and commit to keeping him on heartworm prevention for the rest of his life. He would strongly benefit from having another confident canine in the home. Please NO first time dog owners, no kids, no cats, no dog parks, or electric fences. Herding breed experience strongly preferred. Apply for Rocket at: https://rescueofhope.com/adoption-application/ show less

Meet Sundown, a sweet young boy with a rough start. He was brought to Humane Society of the Delta in Arkansas last October. He'd been shot at and hit by a car while running stray and was limping on his back leg due to a fractured hip. Thankfully he's in foster care with us now and his hip surgery was completed on Feb. 2nd. Sundown is still just a pup, so once he's all healed up he'll be ready to bounce around and play again. He's only around a year old and about 45 lbs. He's house and crate trained and walks well on a leash. Despite growing up in terrible circumstances, he's happy and loves people. Sundown loves to run and play and will need regular exercise. Training classes would be great for him! He'd love a fenced in yard for his zoomies! He's probably too exhuberant for little kids, but active older kids would be great. Cats and older dogs aren't a good fit, but he loves playing with other dogs who don't mind his goofiness. Sundown loves his snuggle time on the couch with his people, too. We can't wait to see him recovered and adopted to a loving home!  Sundown will need time to heal from his surgery, but long-term he needs someone active and patient who will continue teaching him good manners. Sundown is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $275 and you can apply to adopt at: https://rescueofhope.com/adoption-application/ show less
