Update 3/9/2016: Bailey is now 12 yrs old, but does not act that age. Has never truly gotten the concept of going potty outside. Does go into the fenced yard, but often potties in the house. Bailey prefers to lay quietly under a table and observe the action around him he weighs around 20lbs. He needs a fenced yard. Bailey loves to be put on the big bed to sleep at night. Original Listing: Bailey is a healthy eleven year old male Poodle. Born 02/20/04 he weighs approx. 15lbs. Bailey is not real social with other dogs and would prefer being the "only" guy in the house. Bailey needs a fenced yard and his house training is progressing but he will mark. Leash training is going slow as likes to walk between my legs rather than on the side. I think he feels more secure that way. He is easily startled and is quite timid. A quiet home with no children would be best for this little man. If you think you have the perfect home for me, go to www.hubbardshounds.com and submit an application. NO PHONE CALLS! Donation amount is $150.00
Update 2/19/2016: Beau is about 13 1/2 yrs old now. Beau is a sweet old man that prefers his own company to that of other animals. He is a space guarder. He was trapped running feral in a southern swamp and has many old physical injuries. Broken bones, even shot in the leg. He is terrified on leash and has to be carried if off the property and it is a challenge even going to the vets. Luckily he has been healthy in spite of his old injuries. He was treated for heartworm and other swamp illnesses but has not had any issues since the initial treatment. He does enjoy his person and the fenced yard. He likes to sunbathe on the deck in pleasant weather. He is potty trained as well. He needs a home with quiet , patient people and a fenced yard. No children and preferably no other pets. he deserves to be the star attraction!! Original Listing: Beau is approx 10 years old. He is about 35 pounds and is a Terrier mix. He was found running as a feral dog in the swamps of Virginia where he was trapped and turned over to rescue.He had a broken back, pelvic and hip that healed but not in great alignment. He was shot in the ankle at some point and has bullet fragments in his lower leg. His leg works but he does limp and it has the shape of a spatula. He was HW positive and had other swamp issues upon rescue. He is now HW negative and actually is fairly healthy at this point. He has the skeletal issues and his fractures are to old and numerous to fix per his Vet. His biggest issues are emotional. While he is friendly to me, potty trained, uses a doggie door and knows the routine, he is still unable to be walked on a leash. He goes ballistic...he has to be carried to the Vet appointments and he thrashes the whole time. He needs a securely fenced yard due to his fear issues and he needs an adult home that is quiet with a nice routine. He can be bed territorial with other other animals.

update 2/21/16-Carabella is a 12 year old sweetie pie. She is a puppymill survivor and comes with some fear issues. She knows the routine here now and is trying hard on potty training. She requires a fenced yard due to her fear issues and a no child home. She has significant spinal disk issues and would do best as an only dog. I monitor her jumping etc due to her back issues. She does well with other dogs but due to her being fragile, a home to herself would be best. Otherwise she is a healthy little girl with wild fairy hair. She has beautiful long eye lashes and really is very pretty! Original listing: Carabelle Angelina is a Jack a Poo Poo. Jack Russell/Poodle Mix. She is about 12 pounds and cute as a button. She has a lot of emotional baggage from her life in a puppy mill. She is about 10 years old. She can be a fear bitter but she is not mean. She has wild hair and could be related to Phyllis Diller:)) She has learned to use the dog door and will often potty outside. She does have a hint of seperation anxiety and does have an accident in her crate daily still. She is too fearful to walk on a leash at this point and needs a secure fenced yard. No children and a quiet home with reasonable expectations for this damaged dog is a must. If interested in Carabella, go to www.hubbardshounds.com and submit an application. NO PHONE CALLS! Adoption donation is $150.00
UPDATE 3/6/16: Chloe is a puppymill survivor with many emotional scars. She likes to be pet on her terms only and she still hates to be picked up. She is 11 years old and just a beautiful girl. She has eye issues and uses eye meds daily . She is now blind in one eye from cataracts. She is not completely potty trained. Will go out the doggie door but will also go where ever she is inside when the urge strikes. She is very sweet with other dogs and is a quiet little munchkin. She needs a patient family, a fenced yard, no kids and a kind gentle dog for a friend would be nice. Chloie is a 9+ year old shih tzu who came from a backyard breeder. Chloe is a very very sweet but damaged little girl. She tolerates being pet but does not like being picked up. She is just finally starting to venture off the deck into the fenced yard after 3 years here. She is afraid on a leash. She expresses her anal glands when you pick her up, that is how afraid she is. She is friendly and playful to the other dogs here and seems to get comfort from them. She likes her foster Mom and will follow her around but will not cuddle or seek out to be picked up.Due to her fear issues she is considered a flight risk and would not be a good traveling partner.She is also still learning about potty training. She is doing better but does not ask to go out and will still go in the house at times. If you have the home for Chloie, go to www.hubbardshounds.com and submit an application. NO PHONE CALLS!

UPDATE 2/21/16: Hi - my name is Ivy. I am a 12 1/2 year old Poodle/Bichon mix. I am looking for a forever home. Are you the one for me? I am still a bit scared, and will run when you try to pick me up. Once you do though, I am fine. I just get a tad nervous around people. A home with adults would be best. No small children please. I like laying around the house with my friends, so another dog would definitely be a plus for me. That dog could teach me new tricks! I need a fenced in yard to run play in please. I like playing with toys so would need lots in my new forever home! Give an older dog a chance. You won't be sorry! If you have any questions, please reach out to my foster mom at email@example.com. If you are interested in adopting Ivy, submit an application! Original Listing: My name is Ivy, I'm a 9 year old Bichon who was used to have puppies my whole life until I was finally rescued in November of 2010. I am very timid and nervous. I do like to play ball and chew my Nylabone. Patience and love is a must for me. I am doing very well on my potty training. I may make a mistake with my new home though, so please give me some time to adjust. I will need a secured, fenced in yard for my safety. Ivy should not be adopted to a home with small children. If you have the right home for me, go to www.hubbardshounds.com and submit an application. NO PHONE CALLS! Adoption donation is $100.00
UPDATE 2/21/16: My name is Reinee, and I am a 14 year old Poodle/Bichon mix. I have been around a long time, so I am sure I could teach you a trick or two if you pushed that adopt button. I am still very scared and a calm adult home would be the best for me. I need a fully secured fenced yard because when I get scared, I will run and run and run. That would not be good. My favorite pastime is sleeping in the many beds around the house with my buds, especially Ivy. We have lived together for a long time, as we were littermates in the puppymill we were rescued from. Please open your heart to a senior. I don't act like a senior, honest. When I am outside I play in the fenced yard with the toys that are outside. I am first in line for dinner too. I love to eat! Reinee is spayed, up to date with shots, microchipped, and on monthly preventatives! If interested, submit an application! If you have any questions please send my foster mom a note at firstname.lastname@example.org Original Listing: Reine came with Ivy, another little Bichon. Reine is 10 years old. She weighs approx. 17 pounds. She is a sweet old gal who is just starting to get used to home life. You see, she was a breeder for her first 9 years with very little contact with people. Because of this, she is very timid. She will allow you to pick her up, and once you have her, she will settle right down. But she is scared, so patience would need to be had with Reine. Reine loves the other dogs and gets along with them all. She has her favorite buddy Ivy, whom she just loves. Reine is still working on her potty habits. She will go outside, but she also will go inside, no matter where she is. We are working on this, and hopefully, we will at least get to pottying on the potty pad in the house. For some breeding dogs, this is one of the hardest lessons to conquer. They try very hard, but when you have been peeing and pooping in your cage for years, it is hard not to realize you can't do the same thing in a home. Reine needs a secured, fenced in yard. No small children and a quiet household would be beneficial to her. She does not like alot of commotion. I have not leashed walked her yet and do not plan to do so anytime soon. She would definitely be a flight risk if she ever got loose. If you can give Reine the home she needs, go to www.hubbardshounds.com and submit an application. NO PHONE CALLS!

Katie Bigelow is a large red Pom or Pom mix. She is about 18 pounds and is about 9 years old. She is a product of a puppymill and was turned over from another rescue due to her fear issues. She is progressing and now is almost potty trained, loves the yard, uses a dog door and comes willing for pets. She is protective of her person and her home and has bitten visitors. We are working on this. She has potential and we will continue to work with her. Her best friend is a big Lab here. She is attached at the hip to him:)) She can be snotty to some of the other dogs here though. Do you have a home for Katie? If you think you do, go to www.hubbardshounds.com and submit an application. NO PHONE CALLS! Adoption donation is $150.00
Update 3/9/2016: Lewis is thought to be 12-14 years old now although he acts much younger and maybe he is. He was surrendered from a commercial breeding facility and is really doing great. Although he doesnât ask to be picked up, he does LOVE to lay around on the couch and play with the other little dogs in the foster home. He is fine with other dogs, cats and pretty much everyone. He is doing pretty good with house training although I put a belly band on him to stop him from âmarkingâ. He does like to be outside in nice weather and was even playing with Gordy last week. I donât know if he will ever be âfullyâ housetrained, but he definitely knows to go potty when he goes out. He is completely vetted and would love a home of his own! When his hair is short, he looks like a poodle, but if his hair grows out, he looks more like a cockapoo! Whatever his breed, he is a sweet little guy! Lew is a 8-10 year old poodle/maltese mix. He is a puppy mill survivor so is still scared. He is a good little guy though, never any biting or nipping. He just cowers when you try to pet him. He does however, go outside now. He likes to get treats for going out, he is not 100% reliable about pottying outside, but he does go out to potty. He is neutered, up to date with shots, microchipped, hw negative and has had a dental. He is completely vetted and ready for a new home. If you are intersted in Lew, go to www.hubbardshounds.com and submit an application. NO PHONE CALLS ACCEPTED! Adoption donation is $150.00
Update 4.29.17 Jillie is a special needs Min Pin. She had water on the brain and has an intellectually disability. She has seizures and balance issues. Sometimes has trouble with mouth coordination. She is not potty trained. Just doesn't get it. Jillie is a sweet girl that has her special friends here. She is a gentle girl. She is 11 Years old and about 9#'s. She is a slow learner but has learned the routine here. She likes to be close to me but picking her up disrupts her balance. So unless I am sitting I have to just allow her to be my little shadow. She has recently been diagnosed with an eye issue where her pupils don't constrict to light. She is learning to wear her doggles. I have to tighten them slowly as she gets use to them. Jillian is adoptable to the right home. No expectations, and gentle acceptance of her disability. No children and a fenced yard are needed. She does poorly on a leash. She is a sweet little girl that wishes you all a safe and happy year! Jillian Rose is an adorable, 8 years old, dilute Red Miniature Pincher. She is about 8 pounds, is hydrocephalic and has a seizure disorder and balance issues. She is developmentally delayed in learning and is not potty trained.

Adoption donation is $150.00
Update 12.12.16 Blu is a sweet little black dog with a sad hx. Before he was 6 months old, he came into Hubbard's Hounds with a broken jaw. He had been abused as a puppy and he carries the scars with him still. He is a small lab mix about 50#'s. His jaw has been fixed and he has no issues. He is 3 years old now. Most of the time he is a fun loving, affectionate dog. He is playful and gets along with the other pups here. But is frightened of any surprises. Even if I come out of the shower with my hair in a towel he takes an aggressive stance. All it takes is me to smile and tell him it ok and it's me and he rushes in for attention. But he sounds scary and was returned due to this. He does not like men. And the surprises and fast movements of kids is really not ideal for him. He requires a fenced yard, a friendly playful dog, no kids and no men. He has that here and he is wonderful except for momentary little blips. He has never bitten but if really afraid I am not sure he wouldnt. With that said, he is a funny, pleasant, playful, affectionate little dog in the right home. He sleeps in bed and loves to cuddle. If you can give this little abuse survivor a home that meets his needs, pk ease apply. He would love his own home. --- Do you need Mama's little helper????? I have just the fellow for you! He helps with the laundry when I am trying to fold it. He takes the garbage out. He brings me my shoes, (and then takes them away again).He tries to help me undress by pulling on my pants. He helps pick up anything on the floor. When he tracks in he rolls all around in the mud to clean it up:)) He cleans my feet when I am trying to get my socks on. As you can see he is a hard hard working little boy. Oh, did I mention he is a medium sized black dog that is all puppy. He has recovered from a fractured jaw that he came to us with. He is neutered and up to date on boosters. HW negative and on preventative. He helps keep the others dogs in shape with his non stop playing. He is a sweet little boy and is very loveable. He is still making up for his lack of socialization , but is an eager and smart student. Blue Bayou is a joy. Plain and simple. And he needs a family just as wonderful...could that be you?

UPDATE 12.8.16 Havoc is a super-handsome, athletic, 80-lb pit mix who would love nothing more than to have a person(s) to call his very own. His favorite activity is playing ball, followed closely by chewing on toys and just having family time in general. He has gotten along with other dogs in his foster home and others on play dates, but he benefits from calm and relaxed introductions (like social walks) so that he doesn't get over-excited or anxious. Havoc is crated in his foster home overnight and when the humans are out (which is usually only for 4-6 hours at a time, several times a week). He did develop anxiety problems with previous adopters who needed to leave him alone 8-10 hrs/day during the week. But Havoc does very well with his schedule and with being crated in his foster home. He could potentially work up to more regular crate time with patient, gradual training and/or with someone who has experience properly handling anxiety (so that he doesn't revert back to being anxious/fearful). He is a sweet but goofy boy who is medium-energy in general, but will occasionally get the crazy zoomies and tear around like an adorably uncoordinated maniac. For this reason, but also more because they make him anxious, he would do best in a home without young children. He also cannot live with cats or other smaller animals. He loves to run and jump after balls (his foster parents found some strong rubber ones that hold up better than regular tennis balls) and he'd love to go on hikes or really just about any trips at all--he loves riding in the car! His foster mom has been working on leash walks with the help of a properly-fitted prong collar that is making a huge difference keeping Havoc focused on her during their outings. Havoc's biggest "issue" is his occasional anxiety. However, it is very easy to redirect him and there are many easy 'tricks' to snap him out of it; he really does great in his foster home! He is a genuine buddy dog who just wants someone to be around, and the only real requirement for that someone is patience! In return, Havoc is guaranteed to give you millions of: goofy looks uncoordinated attempts to catch a ball droopy, sleepy eyes very handsome photos adorable thumping tail wags thumping tail wags that turn into full body wags kisses anywhere that he can get to couch snuggles deep stretches accompanied by funny noises and much much more... Please let us know if Havoc could be a good fit for your home! --- Havoc is a wonderful dog who has, sadly, been returned to us twice! We love having him so thatâs okay with us, but heâs a fantastic buddy dog who deserves to have a family of his very own! Havoc is just over a year old, ~65lbs, and is very handsome with a great tan and white coat. He adores playing with his foster sister and is a big hit at the dog park. He is house trained (using a dog door to fenced yard to potty) and stays in his crate overnight and when his humans are gone. He is a strong chewer so needs appropriate toys, and he loves chasing after balls (luckily, weâve found some rubber ones that hold up much longer than tennis balls!) He is super athletic but still needs to work on coordination, lol. He loves to go-go-go if there is something exciting happening, but is medium energy overall and loves to curl up and nap as long as heâs near his family. Havoc does not do well around small children as they make him very anxious. He can occasionally be nervous around some adult humans, especially if they are nervous of him, but there are easy ways to work on this with him and he adjusts well! He had some anxiety issues when crated/left alone for long periods of time in a previous home, but we have found that as long as we can get him past the state of anxiety, he does just fine. And he would love to have additional dog siblings! Havoc loves to travel and just wants to be around his family, whoever they may be. He will need someone who can be patient with and work correctly on his anxiety issues and someone who is home much of the time would be ideal, just to help ease his transition. Please consider adding Havoc to your homeâhe is loyal, funny, handsome, and will give you more love than you could possibly imagine! If interested in Havoc, go to www.hubbardshounds.com and submit an application. NO PHONE CALLS! Adoption donation is $250.
Willow was released from a commercial breeder at 7 yrs old. She is totally blind. Has been spayed, microchipped and is up to date on vaccines es. Willow is not any way near being house trained. Does not at this time want to be picked up or touched. She responds to my voice as she will tilt her head when I talk to her. She has come a long way though since coming into rescue. She no longer sits in the same spot with her head hanging down. She has learned to navigate the main part of the house and she LOVES her food.

Bella is approx 11 yrs old and weighs around 21lbs. Known bite history, Miss Bella wants to be touched on her own terms. Does not allow herself to be picked up and will attempt to bite. Originally from a commercial breeder, Bella exhibits many traits that most probably will not change. She will have to be accepted for who she is as she has been in her foster home. Loves to go outside. Will come when called and loves to be talked to. She is very attached to her person and will follow closely. Bella is spayed, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, on flea and HW prevention monthly and has had a dental in the last year.

8.23.16 Katie is miniature poodle who is just as sweet as can be. She doesn't do well on a leash, but in a fenced yard is good about going out. She came from a puppy mill, going to be used as a breeding dog and probably was. She is not a fan of puppies or young dogs who want to play. She really just wants a lap! She is about 8 years old now and the groomer said she did great! Very friendly and ready to make new friends. She loves attention. If you are interested in Katie, go to www.hubbardshounds.com and submit an application. I know she would be grateful! Adoption donation $100 and she if fully vetted!
4/17/17 Ringo Bear is a nine year old Boston Chihuahua mix. Ringo has been in fostercare about 7 years. He is a dog with a significant bite hx. He has a startle reflex and comes up snapping. He has improved but has not completely gotten over this. He hates to be restrained for procedures. Otherwise he is a loving, playful wonderful fellow. He is really a good little fellow who tries to be good. He has not bitten here but I respect his issues. He is potty trained, crate trained and verbally responsive. He has learned to remove himself from things that stress him . He goes to his open crate. He comes out when he is ready. He is not an unpredicable biter. He is very predictable. Ringo would love a quiet home with a person that can read his needs and respect them. No children. Oh yes, and he prefers a pillow with a sturdy pillow so he can burrow inside. Sooooo cute. Ringo needs a very special person, a quiet home and his pillow. Ringo said you better go mow your lawn now and get off the computer! === 3/5/2016 - Meet Ringo Bear. He is a feisty little man. We believe he is a Boston Terrier Chihuahua mix. He is about 15 pounds and built like a tank! He is about 8 years old. Sadly he had a rough start in life and ended up in a shelter. He was pulled and went into foster care where he severely bit his foster mom. I have him now and have had him for a few years with no biting. However that is not because he wonât try. I am fast and use care with him. He has issues with Cherry eye which have been repaired 3 times. They have been good for awhile. He is a very touch reactive dog. Will bite if startled. Is also a doll of a little man. Very sweet and kissy most of the time. Due to his significant bite hx and his continued issues he is not up for adoption. He is a forever foster. If you like to donate toward his care this would be very appreciated. He really is a sweet fellow and very cute and sweet most of the time.
Joey is a Jack Russell terrier who weighs approx 23 lbs. he is house trained and a fenced yard is a must!! Joey does have some fear aggression and has bitten in the past when he gets overwhelmed. Joey needs a quiet home as excessive activity does bother him . Joey takes a bit to become comfortable with his person , but once he connects, he is very loving and asks for attention. Joey gets along with other dogs, but would be most comfortable either as an only dog or with another like personality dog.
5.3.17 Calamity is around 50 pounds and loves to run around the fenced yard and go for long walks. She is good with all people she has met but because of her size and energy would probably be best in a home without very young kids. She is housetrained and loves her crate. She will sleep either in her crate or in bed with her person. She can be mischievous and enjoys getting into everything, so she will need someone with patience and time to work with her. She is learning how to play with toys and will sit and lay down for food. She is not a barker and loves to be petted and rubbed and snuggle up on the couch at night. If you think you have the right home for Calamity submit an application! Adoption donation is $200. 2.25.17 Calamity is a two year old, loving, energetic dog looking for a home. She is currently working on leash walking and loves to go for walks and rides in the car.
Owen is a sweet little guy. He is not a fan of large dogs unless they leave him alone, then he is fine. He is doing great, is pretty social, and doing well going outside to potty.

If you are interested in Owen, submit an application! He would love a home of his own. Adoption donation is $150. Visit www.hubbardshounds.com to submit an application.
9.20.17 Darla is a sweet girl with a curious disposition and a tendency to be anxious, especially around new environments and people. She is nervous with strangers and should be introduced to new people slowly, preferably not while out on walks. If you live in a multiple animal household, introductions should be done slowly as well - she seems to be okay with cats, but tends to be a little over curious when meeting them. While Darla does need sufficient exercise and toys to keep her stimulated, her energy is pretty low - she does not get out of control or destructive. Darla is crate trained and knows basic commands, but has trouble listening when overstimulated. We are working toward improving this, and she is doing well. Overall Darla would do best in an active family, but probably not one with a lot of strangers coming and going. Children would be fine as long as playtime is observed, cats are a a possibility, and dogs we are not sure about. 6.21.17 Darla went to the vet today and did wonderful. She is happy and affectionate, even gave the Dr. a big kiss! She is a big girl at about 77 lbs, but is not fat at all. She is, we believe, a lab/aussie mix. She is a bit nervous, but has come a long way. She is completely house trained and never soils in her area! She met a puppy today while on leash and did excellent, but I was told she is not good with other dogs. I don't know about cats, but she likes kids. She will need a home with a fenced yard and an active family. She will also need time to adjust, it will not be an overnight adjustment and if you are interested in adopting her, please realize it may take a few weeks for her to be completely comfortable with you. I had all her shots updated and she was tested for HW, lyme, ehrlichia and anaplasma. She is lyme positive, but has no clinical signs at all. She did get her first lyme vaccine today and will have another in 30 days. If interested in Darla, go to www.hubbardshounds.com and apply. Please be sure you are willing to give her the time she needs. She is about 3-4 years old.
Tiger is an older guy who lost his Mom. He is very sweet and gets along great with all the dogs in his home. He does pretty well going out, but is an older guy so does have some accidents at times. He recently had a dental and lost most of his teeth so I'm sure he is feeling much better now. He has also had a couple very small seizures, but nothing to the point of needing medicine. He is completely vetted and ready for a new home. His adoption donation is $100
Rocky is a 9 year old long haired dachshund. He is completely vetted and has had a dental also. He is totally blind, he can see nothing. I ordered a halo for him but it has not arrived yet, which is a device that will keep him from running into things. He is a very sweet boy although he does NOT like cats. He can't always find the cat, but he will bite at him when he does He is fine with other dogs although he runs into them which some dogs do not like. He also likes people of all ages. He is a very gentle little guy, but will need the right home with someone who will take time to take him for walks and guide him. He loves to get in your lap and snuggle. If you are interested in Rocky, go to www.hubbardshounds.com and submit an application. His adoption donation is $200.
