Willow

Willow is a poodle mix puppy mill survior who is blind. She came into rescue pregnant. She had her puppies and all have found homes. She was a wonderful mom. Willow is about 9 years old. She is still terribly afraid of people. She has started exploring her surroundings and generally is dog friendly unless they invade her bed. 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.
A fenced yard is needed although she is very afraid outside. Once the weather improves we will continue working on that. No small kids and only gentle dogs.

If you want to help and are unable to adopt Willow, consider becoming a sponsor!

Roscoe

Little Roscoe is available for adoption! . 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  is doing great. He is house trained, 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.  His adoption donation is $200

Sally

Sally is a beagle mix who is around 2 years old, but of course, we are never sure. She is a sweet, very active, playful little gal, and has completed her first heart worm treatment, so she will be ready for adoption soon! She loves to play, but needs a little help with personal space. She is NOT font of cats, so it would be best in a  cat free home. She is VERY energetic and needs an action home. She likes kids, but given her energy she may alarm some toddlers.

 

If you are interested please submit an application. NO PHONE CALLS! Her adoption donation is $250

Havoc still looking for his forever family…

Havoc - posing collage (shrunk)

This very handsome lab mix just turned 3! He had a rough start in life–battling parvo as a tiny puppy and then undergoing open abdominal surgery to remove an intestinal blockage when he was only a few months old. After finally recovering, he was brought to a foster home in Ithaca, NY thanks to Hubbard’s Hounds. Because he spent his younger months in a vet hospital, he missed out on prime socialization time that would have helped him become the confident boy his size and stature (solid 85 lbs!) would otherwise suggest. But, with time and patience, he has done very well in his foster home and he has a lot to offer the right person!

Havoc is easy-going around the house and is typically a medium-energy pup. He very much enjoys relaxing around his favorite people and he is happy to nap pretty much anywhere!

Havoc walks very well on a short leash with a properly fitted prong collar (this helps keep his attention focused on his handler) and he’s a fabulous running & hiking buddy. He also loves going for rides in the car (short or long) and his foster mom often brings him along to run errands when the weather is appropriate. He has done some backyard agility work to help build confidence and is generally eager to please although, when he gets over-excited, he sometimes gets the zoomies and tears around like a giant goofball. He loves playing w balls (there are some hard rubber kinds that last a bit longer than tennis balls) although he tends to enjoy HAVING the ball, as opposed to dropping it for fetch over and over again. He also likes rope bones and other chew toys, but because he can make short work of some toys, his foster mom is very careful to make sure any small pieces are removed so he can’t accidentally swallow them.

As mentioned, Havoc can exhibit some anxiety, although there are a lot of ways to snap him out of it. Currently, isolation distress (being left all alone) is his biggest challenge, so he would do best in a home where there could always be someone with him. He has adapted well to his foster home (solid routines are key for him) and they are currently able to crate him, alongside their dog, for several hours at a time, several times a week. He may not be ready for this in a new home right away, but patient training should help. And when his foster family goes out of town, they have had housesitters stay with great success (Havoc doesn’t necessarily mind WHO is with him, just prefers that SOMEONE is.) 🙂

Havoc cannot be in a home with small animals because of his prey drive & size, and he can appear dog selective although (like his other ‘quirks’) it is really just a matter of managing his anxiety. He benefits from calm introductions (like long walks together, over multiple meetings) in order to build up trust and has done well with other dogs in this way. Finally, Havoc cannot be in a home with young children because they honestly just scare the bejeebers out of him. Older children who are dog savvy (and can understand how to read his mood and the need to behave calmly) may be okay.

This handsome buddy has been patiently waiting for his forever home and would really love to find his person–could you be that family for him? Please email hubbardshoundsinfo@gmail.com if you want to learn more about Havoc, or submit an application today!
