German Shepherd Dog • Adult • Male • Large

House trained • Spayed/Neutered • Current on vaccinations • Prefers a home without: Cats and Young Children

Denver is a very special boy. He lived in a junk yard and was totally ignored and not socialized. He was also starving, so we began feeding him through his fence. His owner was not receptive to us and he was rarely there anyway. Chain of Hope kept Denver fed all through last winter. He finally escaped from the junk yard and when the owner tried to get him back in there, Denver, of course, would not go to this mean man. Finally the guy gave up and told the neighbor he didn’t want him anyway.

Chain of Hope trapped him and brought him to our facility. We had never touched him. He was very nervous, but he let us pet him that night. We began a journey of socializing Denver. We went very slow with him and let him come to us on his own terms and time. Denver has made amazing progress! He loves affection and being pet. He can also still be a little skittish. He has never shown any aggression ever. He just doesn’t have his confidence where it needs to be. It is a slow introduction with everyone new, a little slower with men but he does accept people and then just wants tons of love! Our trainer is a man and Denver does very well with him.

Denver is in a play group and LOVES playing with other dogs. He would do best in a home with another dog. He is too interested in cats! Denver is crate-trained, although he would prefer to not be in one! When we do leave him out over night, he does not potty or destroy anything. He’s a good boy!

Denver is about 2 yrs. old. He’s a big dog, weighing in at about 80 lbs. He is a true gentle giant. Denver needs a 6 ft. privacy fence. He had tested positive for heart worms when we rescued him and he has completed his treatment, is doing great and has no restrictions.

We would love to talk more with you about Denver. He does have a lot of requirements, but we know there’s the right home out there for this precious boy where he can continue to thrive and continue to heal his heart.

Beagle & Pit Bull Terrier • Adult • Male • Medium

Spayed/Neutered • Current on vaccinations

Bogie is an adorable Beagle/Pit mix, about 1.5 yrs. old. He lived on a chain his entire life until he was finally rescued by Chain of Hope. We love this boy!

Bogie fetches balls and plays well with other dogs. He is in a play group and does pretty well. He likes people too, but can sometimes be a little shy. Basically, he came off of being chained to a fence and we have been working on socializing him. He is responding really well and is having a lot of fun at Chain of Hope. What he’d really love, though, is a loving, forever home of his own.

Bogie is neutered, vaccinated, on heart worm prevention and flea prevention. He is crate-trained and very close to being house-trained. He loves playing with toys and usually has a toy in his mouth! He doesn’t seem to mind cats either. We love showing Bogie what it’s like to be loved and cared for! He always has a big smile on his face and that big tongue hanging out!

If you would be interested in fostering or adopting Bogie, please fill out an app! Bogie is waiting for you!

Hi! Are you looking for snuggles? Good, I love snuggling. What about cuddles? OMG I am the best cuddler! OK, last question. What are your feelings regarding hugs? Holy cow I absolutely love hugs too! Well, if you really, truly like a snuggler, cuddler and hugger, then no need to search any further, because frankly I am already the best out there and only getting better! My name is Ruby and I have the sweetest, gentlest disposition in all of puppy-land. Before Chain of Hope took me in, I had some kind of traumatic injury that pushed my knees up further than they should have gone. I was walking a little funny, so Chain of Hope took me to some fancy schmancy doctors at the University of Missouri to find out what was going on. That’s when they figured out about this past event that happened. They said I healed a little funny and time will tell more, but under strict orders I am to act and play like any other puppy! Good, because I was going to have real problems if anything got in the way of my snuggles. If your life could use more sweetness and love, please submit an application for me, Ruby, and a volunteer will be in touch shortly!
