Hope is a 2 year old JRT mix who is part of the Seven Virtue Dogs. He may present cautious initially. But he is all about his people. Once he's in the arms of his people he's a total cuddler and snuggler. If you let him sleep with you, he will sleep all night and not move at all. He's not much of an explorer initially. He really is a velcro kind of dog who stays with his people. Once he develops a confidence in his people he will become more adventurous.

The Seven Virtues are seven sweet dogs who we rescued from a terrible hoarding situation, one of the worst we’ve seen in our almost twenty years of rescue. The hoarders reached out to us and begged us to come take their dogs. When we arrived, we realized we didn’t have the capacity to take all 30-40 of them into our rescue and we called Animal Control to contact other rescues to come help with the rest.

Hope gets along well with other dogs. He can live with big or little ones. He is very dog savvy. He's an option once he is comfortable in his home (give him time, please!) he can go to doggy day camp or to the dog park. But he needs a significant bonding period at first. Hope is a dog who could stay home all day while his parents are at work. He's not a barker. Hope has always lived with cats as well. So he can go to a home with dog savvy cats.

Hope will need a home that has had a dog in the last 3 years. If there are kids they need to be at least 10 years old.

**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)

**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.
