Love is 1 year old JRT mix who may have a little Beagle in him. He needs that soft, gentle, loving new owner that will just open his/her heart and welcome him in. He is going to be scared when he meets strangers initially. This is a dog who truly needs a rescuer's heart. He won't be perfect at first. But he will be perfect for the right home. He needs a home that is confident and can help him build his confidence. Ideally there would be another dog who he could trail after and find his confidence by watching.

He was a part of the Seven Virtues 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.

But Love has been in a new foster home that has continued to work with him and just shower him with unconditional love. It's amazing to see how much that has transformed him. We now know that in a home he will blossom. He loves his time to cuddle on the couch with his foster mom. He sits under the desk when she works during the day. He loves the cuddly fluffy dog beds. He loves to get buried in them. He has recently discovered the sun and the grass. He will roll from one end of the grass to the other end. It's kind of funny...

Love will need a home that has had a dog in the last 3 years. If there are children they will need to be 12 years old and be very dog savvy. They will need to be the kind of kids who have grown up with dogs their whole life.

**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.
