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 was initially shy when meeting folks for the first time but then he began to show a very different side. He settled into his new foster home very easily. He made friends with the 11 year old boy and they are thick as thieves now. Love will be perfect for the right home. He needs a home that is confident and can help him build his confidence. We all thought he might do best with another dog and then in his new foster home he's proven that he doesn't need another dog to blossom. He's doing it all on his own!

Here's an update from Love's foster! "Love is very affectionate and cuddly. He loves to cuddle on my lap. He often follows me around the house everywhere I go. He is also very playful and can play for long periods of time. He likes to play fetch with a small ball or with his plush toys. He sometimes likes to take the toy and just chew on it for a bit.

At night I put the fluffly bed in the crate and have Love sleep in the crate. The first few nights he cried for about twenty minutes but now he no longer cries when I crate him at night."

Love 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.

Love will need a home that has had a dog in the last 3 years (owned personally not a parent's or roommates dog and not petsitting a dog). He is an option for a home that is gone during the day- he's cool with staying home alone. If there are children they will need to be 10 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.
