11.22.17 Bailey is a senior poodle that still has lots of energy. He is doing very well with the other dogs in his foster home and gets along with all. He still has issues with pottying outside, but tries real hard to be a good boy. He loves attention and to sit in your lap. He is on thyroid medicine daily now, but seems to be well controlled. He is completely vetted and ready for a loving home. Apply on our website if interested in Bailey or any of our dogs (He is fine with cats and kid, other dogs) 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
2.25.18 Beau is a 14 year old terrier type dog that ran a feral pack in a Virginia swamp area. He was eventually trapped and found his was into rescue. Hubbards Hounds is the second rescue he has been in. Beau was a truly feral dog. He came heart worm positive, had several swamp based diseases, as well as old fractures of femur, pelvis, hip as well as being shot in the ankle. Needless to say he walks with a limp . He has been here for years. He allows pets, knows his routine. Is crate trained and potty trained. He uses the doggiedoor into a fenced yard. He is space protective and can be dog aggressive. The others give him a wide berth as a rule. He does have one dog here that he will share a bed with. He does not tolerate being leashed. We believe he may have been tied and abused at some point. I have to carry him into the vet. He has been remarkably heathy once he overcame his initial issues. He does have a benign recal growth that is small that we are watching. Due to fear issues it would be hard for him to be left at the vets. It has not changed in 2 years. Beau continues to look for his forever home. He requires a kind, gentle home with no kids and no other dogs if possible. Or one larger gentle dog would be ok. Fenced yard.He is an older , damaged fellow that just wants a kind retirement home. A sponsor would be great till one is found?2.25.18 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.

331.18 Please help us find Havoc a home! Havoc is a 3 yr old lab mix who had a rough start in life. He survived two life-threatening situations (parvo and a later intestinal blockage that required open abdominal sugery) before he was even 6 months old! Being in a vet hospital for all those months meant he missed out on prime socialization time when he would have otherwise developed the confidence youâd expect from this handsome 80-lb lovebug. This means he can be extremely anxious in new situations (whether meeting people, going to new places, seeing other animals, etc.) and he does not do well when left alone. That said, Havoc has thrived in a great foster home for the past couple years where theyâve patiently worked on managing his isolation distress and other anxieties. He trusts his human mom & dad and older canine sister and is just a big, happy goofball 95% of the time. They are even able to crate him while theyâre away for a few hours at a time. Unfortunately, his comfortable foster home situation is about to become very scary for him due to the impending arrival of a new tiny human (babies and young children make Havoc VERY anxious.) For Havocâs well-being (and baby safety, of course) he needs to find a new home situation, and unfortunately all the foster homes in his current rescue are full. Another stable foster would work, but a forever home would be even better. He needs a home without children or small animals and very patient human(s) who have experience working with anxious or troubled dogs. Havoc has shown signs of fear aggression (dog and human) in a couple of situations and, because of his size, will need a confident and experienced foster/owner. Havoc loves toys, chasing (and chewing/destroying) balls, walks beautifully on a leash (his foster mom uses a short leash and prong collar to help keep him focused on her during walks) would be a great running/hiking companion, and basically loves to just âhang outâ at home. He adores going on road trips, rides wonderfully in cars & trucks, and he especially enjoys RV adventures. Havoc does very well with the dog in his foster home (a senior female) and, when slowly introduced in order to form a trusting relationship, has done well with multiple other large dogs as well. Please help us find Havoc a new home where he can feel secure enough to share all the love he has to give. His current rescue and foster parents (based in Central NY) are willing to do whatever it takes to keep him safe and would consider helping with training costs, etc. to make sure he finds the right person/home where he can be successful and happy, like he deserves. Contact us through Facebook or at email@example.com for more information, and please share this pageâthank 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!

She has certain friends she will share with but she is dog selective. Unfortunately she is not potty trained and will also soil her crate. She is about 20 pounds and very pretty. We believe she may have been born blind. She is special needs. Requires a kind and gentle home with limited expectations, willing to allow her time and space to grow at her pace.

11.22.17 Neeko is about 4 years old now. He has been with us since before he was a year old. He certainly can be a little stinker at times, but if given time to adjust, he is the sweetest little guy. He comes off as very nippy and growly upon meeting him, but within a short time, he is in your lap wanting loving. He does pretty well going out to potty, he does try to mark once in a while, but not often. He will not be homed to anyone with children or the potential to have any in the near future. He is fine with other dogs and cats, but does prefer to be the one and only center of attention! He is fully vetted and is ready to take the plunge to a new home with the understanding that he will need time and patience to adjust. His adoption donation is $200, if interested please apply on our website. Neeko came into rescue at about 10 months old as an owner surrender due to behavioral issues. Was a rapid fire biter if asked to do something that wasnât on his terms. He is doing much better, but still reacts quickly on an ocassion that he gets upset. He is a barker and loves to just sit in the yard and bark. Cannot be adopted to anyone with a close neighbor or apt living. He has a high pitched voice. He is just so darn cute and I donât think he is a Jack Russell. He is more like a Maltese mix. Does need a fenced yard. Neeko does ask to sit on his persons lap and will lay quietly. Neeko weighs approx 13lbs
UPDATE 2/19/18: Anna Rose continues to do well. One would never know she has cancer! She loves to be out in the fenced yard and would love to have someone to take her for walks. She is great about going outside to potty and doesn't really mind any kind of weather. She would be a great walking partner, she is calm and really just wants a place to lay her head. www.hubbardshounds.com to apply. Anna Rose is a senior lab who is looking for a place to live out her life. She does good with the small dogs in the home, but would love to be an only dog or have only one sibling to take walks with. She is somewhat shy with new people, but is always friendly. She has a liver tumor which means she may live for just a short time or possibly a long time. I have had her for at least 2 months and she is doing great. She does take proin for leaking twice daily, but it happens! She is a sweet girl who will always be safe with her foster family no matter what happens. If you are interested in giving Anna Rose a home, submit an application on our website.
Little Roscoe is available for adoption now. He would probably do best in a home with children over 10 and would do wonderful in an all adult home because that is what he is used to. He lived with just his Mom until she got sick and then moved in with family. He did OK with the 3 year old, but lost patience quickly. He was with just him Mom for his first 8 years of life so that is what he is used to. He is in a foster home with a few other small dogs and one very friendly lab and is doing great. He is housetrained, completely vetted, microchipped, and had a dental so he is all ready for his new home. If you are interested in Roscoe, submit an application on our website. He wonât be here long! His adoption donation is $200
Maggie is another hound mix that came to us in horrible shape. Lived outside her whole life with little care or food. She is the sweetest gal and very calm. She wants nothing more than to snuggle on the couch with you! She loves people which always amazes me when they are treated so badly by previous owners! She hasn't had one accident in the house so is doing great on the potty training. She doesn't mind the other dogs, but also doesn't really interact, mostly stays to herself and snuggles. We are estimating her at about 3, but she could be older, it is hard to know. She is spayed, up to date with shots, microchipped and will be available in about 6-8 weeks after she is treated for HW disease. If you are interested in Maggie or any of our dogs, go to www.hubbardshounds.com and submit an application. NO PHONE CALLS. Adoption donation is $250
