Introducing handsome Hannibal.   Hannibal is a 1 year old male English Mastiff mix who was surrendered to HOPE so he could find a wonderful home that can support him as he grows into the beautiful boy he’s destined to become.  Hannibal came to us with good manners, he knows how to sit, stay and lay down.  He is friendly with other dogs and ignored the office cat, however, due to his size, he should go to a home with out small dogs and any cats must be dog savvy.  This big guy walks nicely on leash and is keeping his kennel run clean, although he would much rather be lounging on a nice comfy couch!!   He does take a few minutes to warm up to new men but seems to like the ladies just fine. Also, due to his size, children in his forever home should be older so the chances of him knocking them down is minimal.  This big guy is a gentle giant who doesn’t know his size.  Hannibal currently weighs in at 140 pounds but he can easily gain another 30 – 60 pounds as his ideal weight when full grown is between 160 and 230 pounds.  Are you looking for a gentle giant to keep you warm during these cold winter days?  Do you want a dog that won’t get lost in the deep snow?  If you answered yes to either of these questions, please stop by to visit with the handsome hunk named Hannibal.


LITLLE JOE is a 3 year old spaniel mix that was found stray in Ironwood. Joe is a special little guy, as it seems he didn’t have the best life before coming to us.  After a few days, we gave him a bath and noticed he doesn’t like being touched in certain areas around his head/face. With that it would be best if he went to a home with NO small children. He can be very shy at times, but is a real sweetheart. Little Joe is just looking for a quiet home, where he can spend his days relaxing and receiving the love he deserves.

TYSON-Adoption Pending!

TYSON is an 11 month old bully breed dog who was found stray on Bundy St in Ironwood. He is a happy go lucky pup with the sweetest personality. Tyson is still a little unsure of loud noises, and new places but he doesn’t take long to warm up. Tyson seems to enjoy the company of other dogs, just as much as people. He loves to run around outside and play, and when he gets the “zoomies” we can’t help but laugh.


O ROMEO, Romeo, wherefore art thou home Romeo??  Sweet Mr. Romeo is a 1 year old male bully breed  that was recently surrendered to HOPE so he could find a forever home with his Juliet.  Romeo is a very handsome guy who weighs about 50 pounds.  He can be a bit timid in new situations, or around loud noises, but with time and a bit of patience, he finds his confidence. Romeo would make a very loving companion, as he always wants to be around people. He has made great strides since his first day here, he learned it’s okay to play with toys and most importantly to trust. Romeo is eager to please, and loves food, so he is easy to train. He does need to learn some manners, but overall he is the sweetest pup with lots of love to give. Romeo would do best in a home with children over 10yrs old as he can forget that he is a puppy. He does get along with other dogs, but needs to learn boundaries at play time, so supervision is required.  Cats are unknown at this time.  Who wants to shower this handsome guy with love and give him his happily ever after with a forever home??


Awesome ANN is a 5 year old hound mix who was recently found as a stray while having a great adventure with DAN but without any human caretakers. She and DAN have made their way to HOPE and they are looking for new homes where they can continue their adventures, but this time, with human supervision.   Ann is a very sweet girl, who walks well on leash, knows some basic commands and loves a good snuggle with her humans.  She keeps her kennel run clean and gets along with other dogs but seems to prefer males over females.  Ann has been cat tested and was approved by our office cat, she’s a little interested but not obsessed, so dog savvy cats should be okay.  Ann does well with children, but as a typical hound, she does love to follow her nose, so making sure the youngsters can keep doors secure will be necessary.   Don’t let Ann fool you though, she is still spunky and loves to run around and play and will need a home that is committed to giving her plenty of exercise for both her body and her hound dog mind.  Ann and Dan do not need to be adopted together.


Darling DAN is a 2 year old male hound mix that was found as a stray in Iron Belt while out on an adventure with ANN, but without any human companions.  They have both made their way to HOPE and are awaiting their forever homes.  When Dan came in he was very skinny, but we are seeing improvement in his weight everyday as he is a good eater!  Dan is a happy go lucky guy, who enjoys playing with Ann and the staff here.  This handsome fella is a big, young guy, and like most hounds, he can be a little mouthy, so he will need to be supervised around young children and would benefit from a refresher on training. We haven’t tested Dan with cats yet, so they are an unknown.  He seems to like his female dog friends better than his male dog friends.  Dan is a great young dog, with so much potential and love to give, he will thrive in a home.  He does have a lot of energy so he would do best with an active family that wants to work with and train a handsome young hound dog.  Dan would love to use his hound nose in scent work and unlike the hound in Elvis’s song “he’s not crying all the time”.  Who is ready to bring this sweet boy home??


This stunning girl is TWIX, a 2 year old mixed breed dog that was brought to the shelter so she could find a new home. It is pretty clear Twix has not had the easiest life, and from what we know, in her previous life, her main purpose was to produce puppies.  She doesn’t let her past stop her though, once Twix feels safe with you, she is the SWEETEST dog.  It does take a little while for Twix to warm up, and she seems to be more cautious around men, but with a few meet and greets, and a bit of patience, you will quickly win her over.  When she gets excited her whole body gets the wiggles, and it really is the cutest thing.  Twix is selective with the dogs that she likes and should probably be the only dog in the home as she has shown reactivity toward other dogs on multiple occasions.  We haven’t tested her with cats, but based on her energy, we are thinking no cats.  Children in the home will need to over the age of 12 as Twix could easily knock over a little one with her exuberance.  Do you have room in your home for this sweet girl?

CLEO – Adoption Pending!

CLEO is a 2-4 year old bully breed dog who was brought to the shelter recently from the same home as LIZZIE where they were primarily kept outdoors. Cleo is a friendly dog, with a lot of energy. She loves to run around and play. Cleo has a lot of spunk and personality, which can be over whelming at times. She loves people, and any kind of attention. Cleo hasn’t shown any interest in making doggy friends since coming to the shelter.  Cleo would make a great companion for an active family, who likes to go for walks but would also let her curl up on the couch next to them at home. She loves to learn, is very eager to please and even knows a handful of commands.


Lovely LIZZIE  is a 6 year old female bully breed dog that was brought to the shelter recently so she could find a new home. She is a very happy girl, who loves people and attention.  Lizzie can be vocal when she really really wants your attention, as she doesn’t like being left alone for too long.  This sweetheart spent a lot of time outside before coming to the shelter, so she wouldn’t mind having her own spot next to you on your couch so she can get some good snuggling in.  Lizzie is an energetic dog, and a very quick learner who can use some work with manners, but with guidance and of course TREATS she will do just fine! We haven’t tested Lizzy with cats yet and she does seem to be okay with other dogs, but of course, proper introductions will be necessary.  Who has room in their home and heart for this very good girl?  In exchange for a forever home, Lizzie promises to reward you with a lifetime of love and snuggles.


Sweet SCOOBY is a 2 year old male American Bulldog / Pit Bull Terrier mix that was recently surrendered so he could find a forever home that can help him grow into the wonderful dog he’s meant to be.  He is a big, friendly dog that is just getting used to being at the shelter.  He knows his basic commands but will need some leash training as he likes to pull when out on a walk.  Scooby would do best as the only pet in the home as he is selective with the dogs he meets and is too interested in cats for the cats to feel safe.   He will need to go to a home with no young children (under the age of 12) as he is a big guy who doesn’t know his size and could easily knock a young child over.   Scooby is a good boy with a ton of potential, who is really looking for his place in the world and he would love a home where he can be active, and receive a lot of attention.  He responds well to training and positive experiences, and is eager to please.  We haven’t ruled out Scooby living with another dog, but he has started to show signs of being dog selective, so he would need multiple meet and greets so he can decide if he feels comfortable around a new doggie friend.
