Poppy, Labrador retriever and pit bull terrier mix
Poppy is a female Labrador retriever and pit bull terrier mix currently housed at Last Hope K9 Rescue.
No other pets please: Poppy is looking for family without other dogs or cats. Poppy would prefer a home without small children. She's already house-trained. Poppy is already spayed, and she has had all her shots.
Notes from Poppy's caretakers:
Do you enjoy spending time with "your people?" So does Poppy. She's selective about who she allows in her crew, but once you're in Poppy's club, you have VIP access for life. This girl is incredibly loving, snugly, loyal, goofy and fun. She's down for whatever you're feeling that day, whether it's a nap in the sun or a hike in the woods.

Felicity, Jack Russell terrier mix
Felicity is a female Jack Russell terrier mix staying at A Place for Ace.
Felicity will get along great with your other dogs. Her ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. She has had all of her shots, and she is spayed. She's already house-trained.
From Felicity's current caretaker:
Two years old, playful and can get jealous of her "person." She attaches to humans quickly, and if she is adopted into a home with another dog she will need to learn to share. Her favorite activity is wresting dogs her size. Felicity is high energy so a home with a fence is a must.

Sammi Nova Space, Labrador retriever and pit bull terrier mix
Sammi Nova Space is a female Labrador retriever and pit bull terrier mix currently housed at Last Hope K9 Rescue.
Sammi Nova Space is ready to make friends, and she's happy to keep company with other dogs. She has been vaccinated and spayed.
Here's what Sammi Nova Space's friends at Last Hope K9 Rescue think of her:
Sammi is a big goofball who loves all humans and dogs after having a proper introduction. Sammi can get overly excited when meeting new people and will jump, so a home with older kids would be best as she could easily knock over a young child. She's a very energetic dog who loves to play tug of war, sometimes will playfully nip your arm and entertains herself extremely well if you give her a tennis ball.

Here's what Bishop's friends at Last Hope K9 Rescue think of him:
Bishop is a big, happy boy that would love nothing more than a person to snuggle with and a place to hang out and play. He is a very smart boy and knows lots of commands. He is crate trained and potty trained.
