ADOPTED 04-14-12 – Hope was named for the look we see in the eyes of all shelter dogs as they gaze out of their kennels as people walk by. Hope that their owners will come
for them, hope that someone will realize what a wonderful companion they will make, and hope that someone will rescue them before it is too late.  It is what I saw in Hopes eyes when I first looked at her shelter picture.  Luckily due to a great relationship between PAWS NELA and RDV Hope was pulled from a very high kill shelter so that she could travel north to find a family.

Hope is so very gentle, taking treats out of my hand she is very careful and my husband tested her with her food while she was eating he put his hand in the bowl and she just started to eat out of his hand. Take a look at this short video to see how charismatic she is!!”


Hope is a beautiful yellow lab mix. She is about a year old and can stand to gain some weight as she is only around 30-35 lbs.  It seems like Hope may not have had an easy start in life, she startles at loud noises and initially didn’t seem to know how to play or know what to do with toys, but she is learning.  She is very friendly with other dogs and loves young children.  Hope is very gentle and takes treats softly; her foster dad can put his hand in her bowl while she is eating with no issues.   She has been working on house training and leash walking and is doing well with both.  She likes to go for rides in the car and is good on a leash and in the crate.

Hope is coming north to New England in the next few weeks and we will update you on her progress as she learns how to play and live a joyful life. We hope that someday soon Hope’s forever family will find her and make sure that she is safe, loved and cherished forever. Maybe her family will love her so much they will tell others about all the dogs out there still gazing out of their cages with hope that they too will find a family.
