About Howie

Adoption Fee: $575

Howdy, meet Howie! Howie is an incredibly smart dog who thrives for a job. He needs an experienced and active owner that can continue to challenge him mentally and physically. Howie has lots of energy that he can sometimes focus on learning some new skills. He does amazing with obedience and loves to learn. It takes him no time at all to learn something new, and we can imagine that he would excel in obstacle courses or something similar. Even though he may need mental and physical stimulation, Howie also likes to have a good time and can be extremely silly, goofy, and has an awesome personality once he starts to trust. This 2-year-old Pitt/Hound mix is very food-driven and loves toys and playing fetch. While his trainer doesn't feel he's best suited for young children or small pets, she does think he would do best with a submissive yet confident dog. Howie has been exposed to horses and donkeys and has been completely fine with them. He loves hanging out with his people and does completely fine indoors. He will alert you to let you know if someone is in the yard, but once he’s told it's okay, he loves to get attention from them. Howie needs to have an owner that will set boundaries for him and make sure they stick to them. He’s very easy to correct and loves any type of positive praise. Think we could be a dynamic duo? Apply today!

We are entirely volunteer-run and foster-based, so we do not have a physical facility, and we cannot guarantee a dog is housebroken or cat/kid-tested. Pre-approved adopters can arrange a meet and greet for dogs over 6 months old who already in New England, and the adopter is expected to travel to the dog's location. Applications must be submitted at HarveysHope.org for consideration. We estimate it will be 1-2 weeks before you hear from one of our volunteers, depending on volume at the time of submission. Thank you!

Meet Annie, the life of the party! When Annie is around people and other dogs, she struts around, giving everyone playful hellos. This social butterfly is all about interacting, and she does her "rounds" with lots of excitement and pizazz. Her real best friend at her temporary home in the South is a similarly-sized male dog, so we could see her living her best life with a playmate (preferably male, too, since she doesn't love the competition of another Queen Bee) in her forever home. She loves a good pet almost as much as a good party. Annie has undergone heartworm treatment, and we're pretty sure she's in the clear, but are waiting on the final results. If you want to foster or adopt this precocious personality, apply to foster or adopt today!

Aurelia is a resilient lady who is ready to find her family! Her name means "the golden one" which is fitting because she has a heart of gold.  This 5-year-old pit mix is a funny girl who can be found shaking her toys around on the lawn. She loves, loves, loves food, and truly enjoys keeping humans company. Aurelia was abandoned in the woods with her baby, Plum, who was adopted earlier this year. When we found her, Aurelia was completely emaciated and heartworm positive with serious gastric issues that have taken months of special food to try to fix due to the damage it did to her body. While she is still on special food, she's been recovering really well and will be finally ready to come up north this summer to a foster or adopter.

Looking for a loving sidekick? Balboa might be your guy! This incredibly sweet 5-7-year-old dog loves hanging his head out of the window on car rides, accepting lots of treats, and rolling in the grass. He just wants to be with you no matter what! While Balboa didn't always have it easy, he's gotten overcome a lot with his strong, joyful spirit. Balboa came to us paralyzed because he was shot with a BB gun. The BB is still in him, as it would do more damage to remove, but Balboa didn't let that dampen his enthusiasm. While he initially lost a ton of muscle mass, he's a fighter and is doing good on recovery, walking on his own. He has just successfully completed his heartworm treatment at our vet in South Carolina, so he is ready for his furever home!

Bambi is approximately 8 years old and is looking for her forever home. She is good with other dogs smaller than her once proper introductions are completed. She is learning some basic manners with our South Carolina boarding partner while she waits for her forever! Unfortunately, it is evident that Bambi was abused in the past and is extremely submissive upon corrections for unwanted behavior. She will drop to the ground as if you are going to hurt her, even with a verbal "no" or if you redirect her mouthiness with a plush toy. She will need to work with a behaviorist in her new home. She would do best in a home with another submissive dog or as the only dog getting all of the loving. She would not do well with a cat or children under 10 years old. She really dislikes having her picture taken, but we promise she is happy! This 55lb mama gave birth in Texas to a litter of puppies who were eaten alive by fire ants. Her one surviving pup, Flower, was adopted and now that Bambi has completed her heartworm treatment, she eagerly awaits a home of her own. Please apply to foster or adopt this mama today!

Blizzard is an outstanding husky dude with all of the wonderful weirdness of the husky breed and a bonus side of actual listening, including coming when called! I know, right, we can't believe it either...lol. Blizzard is a husky lover's dream, he's everything we love about the breed, but this also means he may be a bit too quirky for casual dog owners who are suckered in by those dreamy blue eyes and stellar good looks. Blizzard is around 5 years old with moderate energy, a leggy, larger size build, and a tight, plush coat. He's a goofy dude with many silly expressions and a penchant for plastering those triangle husky ears flat to his head in the most adorable fashion. Blizz is housebroken, crate trained, and fully vetted. He's good around the house, non-destructive, and tends to like to hang out where his people are without having separation anxiety issues. He does prefer a larger size wire crate and will show signs of containment anxiety in a smaller crate or a plastic crate, so a wire crate of at least 42" long is a necessity. Blizzard loves toys and is decent at sharing the fun once he's had a minute to be suspicious about your intentions of taking his prize away. He tends to be pretty vocal in play, but of course, he is, because husky. Around the house he's generally quiet until he needs something, then the husky noises come out to play. Drama? Of course, there's drama, he's a husky! All in all, his drama is amusing, he's not particularly prone to tantrums and is compliant for brushing, bathing, and normal husbandry stuff. He does have a smidge of resource ownership over a food bowl while he's eating, but it's easy to work around and falls into the category of husky quirks more than problem behavior. Blizzard loves to play and does some excellent zoomies, but he's not super high energy; a few trips around the yard once or twice a day seems to satisfy him. He gets along with other dogs with the fairly typical husky suspicious nature when it comes to making new friends. He's not at all ugly, but he will be standoffish with a new pal and watch them for a bit before he decides if they are worthy husky playmates. Blizzard's pack mentality is pretty well developed, so suspicion is to be expected. We think he'd do best with dogs who are at least medium-size or larger, as small breeds and cats would probably not appreciate his play style. Our boy's perfect match would be someone who's got husky experience, but he could also go to a bonafide dog person who has experience with other opinionated breeds. His ideal person would be someone who is already familiar with positive reinforcement training, he's not the kind of guy who will be tolerant of a heavy hand. Blizzard is more of a furry housemate with thoughts and opinions on the way things should be done than a basic life accessory dog who blends into the background. He forms a very strong bond with his person and is an absolute delight to live with, but he's a husky and they're a lifestyle, so we're going to hold out for a stellar match for this amazing guy.

Camo (FKA Pugsy) can blend into any situation! This almost-two-year-old Beagle mix is the most kind-hearted dog, and despite weighing 36 pounds, considers himself a lap dog. Camo loves creatures of all kinds- cats, dog-savvy older kids, men, women, and dogs. He just loves everything about life does not have a mean bone in his body. He thoroughly enjoys playing with toys and long walks (with a harness). This sweetheart lived with a family for the last year or so, but they no longer felt like they could give him the life he deserves, so he has moved in with one of our fosters in New England until we can find him a family who has the time to give him the love he deserves. If you think this good boy would make a good addition to your family, get your application in!

Cole (fka Pepperoni) is a little bit like most of us after the past year- introverted and unsure he's ready to be social. At just three years old, Cole is a super shy boy who is looking for an experienced adopter to take it slow. He may take a moment to realize he can trust you, but once he comes around, he'll let you pet him, and he's sweeter than sugar. He is friendly and doesn't show aggression with the other dogs at his current foster home in South Carolina, but often just prefers to keep to to himself. This cutie loves a good bone but isn't always treat motivated. Cole came from the big Harris county pull we did in Texas during the winter storm. He has successfully completed his heartworm treatment at our vet in South Carolina, so he's finally ready to come up to New England to a foster or adopter.

The key to Emma's heart is a snuggle and a hotdog. Can you count all the ways that she smiles? This 3-year-old sweetheart is from Harris County, TX. Weighing in at about 50 pounds, she's been determined to be a Staffy/Basset mix. You may not be able to tell from her pictures, but she's a low-riding girl. Emma has received her vaccines and been spayed, so now she is just waiting for someone to take her home forever! Our boarding partner in SC says that Emma is absolutely the sweetest girl, all around! They love her! They said "Emma is going to be someone's best friend! She really just wants to hang out with you, no matter what you're doing." She has learned to sit and is really close to mastering "down," and isn't a fan of being in her crate; she's a little social butterfly and loves to be around people. The shelter told us that Emma was cat-friendly, but she wasn't a big fan of the cat she met with us, so we're going to suggest she isn't in a home with cats. Apply to foster or adopt Emma today!    Please note: Our dogs are rescued from high-kill situations in the South and brought up to New England for foster and/or adoption.

At 3 yrs old and just 45 lbs and 18” tall, Grace is a perfectly sized low-riding pocket pittie. She is a sweet, mellow dog—except in the presence of squeaky toys, which she dismantles with great delight. Grace loves the warm weather and is happy to lie out in the sun for hours. She is not fond of the cold but will patiently allow her foster parents to put on and take off her coat when needed and let them clean her paws when she returns inside. Grace loves belly rubs, snuggles, and trying to occupy the exact same space as her humans. Her dislikes include baths, rain, and feeling left out—if there is something interesting going on, she wants to be there! Grace loves car rides and doesn't mind hanging out in her crate.  Grace loves humans and will probably do best in a home as the only pet. We have also been told she does not like kitties and hasn't had a bunch of experience with other dogs. She has been around kids as young as 1.5 and based on those interactions she appears to be fine with dog-savvy kids that let her go to her safe space if she needs some quiet time. Based on foster home observations, Grace would be perfectly happy to get out all her energy playing with toys, doing puzzles, and running around a fenced yard or a couple of short walks a day. Grace has shown herself to be a willing learner, happy to learn new behaviors and puzzles with the aid of treats. Grace will need to work on leash-walking skills in her new home. Luckily, Grace is incredibly food motivated and thinks just about any treat is high-value, so training should be pretty smooth. Unfortunately, Grace's previous owners did not keep her on heartworm prevention, so did have to undergo treatment, which she successfully completed. Now that she's heartworm negative, she's available for adoption! Grace is a local surrender from Connecticut who gave birth to 10 puppies just days after being rescued. If you adopt Grace, you can join the Harvey’s Hope alumni group and meet all her puppies. If you want this snuggly little lady in your home, apply today!
