About JoeJoe

Adoption Fee: $575

Hi! JoeJoe here! I’m a shy 2-3 yr old and just 8 lbs of cuteness. How can you not want to just take me home?  I am a handsome chihuahua/Papillion mix who loves spending time with a small doggie friend, or a human that I trust. I am timid right now, but think I will make a great lap dog with a little love and patience. I grew up in a household with 30+ other dogs like me, where I was used as a breeding machine, so I don’t know much about human relationships or the world outside. 

My former owner surrendered me when she could no longer take care of us all and, as I’m sure you understand, new people and situations make me nervous. For example, I do not like to be picked up. It makes me think of unpleasant things, like medical treatments. I had to do a lot of them when Harvey’s Hope rescued me, like: neutering, vaccinations, and having my cherry eye surgically repaired, which unfortunately came back. I am not eager to go for more surgery anytime soon, so if you could just love me the way I am, I promise to love you despite any flaws you may have.

My foster mom says I am an adorable little man who does a happy dance when I see people I trust. I have been making a lot of progress since moving in with her, and while I may not have received the love and attention I deserved early on, I am getting a taste of that life now. I know my basic manners, and am working on crate training and house-training. Give me a snuggly warm blanket, a cozy dog bed and some plush toys (unstuffed is best or you’ll have a blizzard of fluff) and I will be a happy pup.  If you are kind and patient, I think I could be a wonderful little companion. I promise that I am worth the effort.

JoeJoe is looking for a quiet, calm, adult-only home with an adopter who will be able to spend lots of quality time with him. A small doggie sibling would be wonderful, too. JoeJoe was rescued from a hoarding situation where he was never taught house manners, or taken for walks, so he is just learning about a leash and how to go potty outdoors. He uses pee pads inside, but ‘outside’ is still very scary. JoeJoe is not a dog for a first-time-owner, nor should he live in a large apartment building type setting with too much going on. Likewise, he will not be placed with young children, as their unpredictable behavior would frighten him. JoeJoe is dog-friendly with other small dogs, but is overwhelmed by large ones and has not been tested with cats. Once this little fella warms up to you, he accepts and yearns for attention. His dream human would be someone who is patient and experienced with shy little guys. If you think you can show JoeJoe that the world is not always a scary place, please fill out an application.

Axel is a happy, easy boy who was found as a stray and spent some time in boarding with our partner in Georgia where he played all day with the other dogs and puppies. The vet thinks he is a border collie mix, but he is definitely a mutt. At just under a year and 55 lbs, he will be a medium to large dog when fully grown. An absolute sweetheart, Axel warmed up to family life immediately on arrival at his New England foster home. He is already crate trained and housetrained and hasn’t had a single accident since he came up. Axel loves to go for walks and is great on leash. He also enjoys a good game of fetch-- his foster mom says he drops his ball at her feet for to throw over and over and over. Axel is a fun pal who is still a puppy, but easily redirected from destructive behavior with bully sticks and toys. He does really well in the car, and really in every situation he has encountered so far, looking to the humans for reassurance when unsure. He is dog-friendly, just a little shy at first. It is unknown how he is with cats but is OK with kids over 12. He just doesn't know his size. Axel is curious, gentle, and eager to please—he lives for pets and getting loved on.  He has a medium energy level and would be happy with a family that will love him, take him for walks, and play fetch. His adopters will need to be committed to following through with obedience training. Axel will make an amazing companion and is sure to fill a household with love.   Please note: We do not have a physical facility and the dogs are not located in Hudson, NH.

Bambi is approximately 8 years old and is looking for her forever home. Bambi is good with other dogs smaller than her once proper introductions are completed. Bambi 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.

Is your confident resident dog looking for a little sister who is a gorgeous smartie-pants in a medium-small package? Belle just might be the dog for you! Belle is an approximately 2-year-old Australian Cattle Dog (Heeler) fully grown at about 30lb. This fun, clever girl loves to get her energy out by running and playing with other furry companions. While initially, she can be a bit skittish, after few days, she feels right at home and shares her sweet, playful self. She is good with other dogs and children over 6 (not tested with younger kids) but has not been cat-tested. Belle was rescued with her litter of puppies when they were only days old. Now that the Ben & Jerry Ice Cream pups are weaned and off to their homes, it's mama Belle's turn. Belle’s perfect home would be one with an active, patient family committed to proper training for heeler mixes. They will have a securely fenced yard and will make sure never to leave her unattended outside because Belle is an incredibly smart girl and will find a way to explore the world outside the fence otherwise. Belle is a very sweet and loving pup, and with a confident doggie sibling to look up to, she will thrive. Please note: We do not have a physical facility and the dogs are not located in Hudson, NH. We are a foster-based rescue and dogs can be located anywhere in New England.

Blizzard is a 5 year old husky and weighs about 55 lbs. He loves to be outside, and is excited to run around, but quickly settles down in the house. He is very affectionate and is always happy to give kisses and receive pets, or to chase a ball and play with dog toys. Blizzard is working on house training, but is crate trained and walks well on a leash. He is quickly learning basic commands and is a fast learner, especially when treats are involved!   Blizzard’s ideal family will be active and walk or hike with him at least twice a day. He would also make a good running buddy. The home will have an active dog for Blizzard to play and run with, and a large yard with 6ft fencing. While his first response is to be tough with other dogs, once he sees the dog won't play until he backs off, he settles right in—and it is important that he has a playmate. His future family will have dog-savvy kids, or a kid-free home, with no small animals that he would want to chase, and will understand that Blizzard is a vocal Husky. Blizzard’s adopter(s) will also understand how important it is for him to continue and be consistent with his training program. He has entered a 6-8 week board and train program and will be available for meets around April, but you can get pre approved to be his new family today!   Please note: We do not have a physical facility and the dogs are not located in Hudson, NH. We are a foster-based rescue and dogs can be located anywhere in New England.

Hi! I'm Buddy! I was a local owner surrender that they hold Harvey's I had worms. Come to find out, it was heartworm disease. Harvey's Hope did not hesitate and immediately started treatment, so now I'm ready for my forever home! I need to stay within 45 minutes of my overseeing vet in Lowell, MA due to needing bloodwork 60 days after my adoption to ensure I am getting better. Harvey's will cover the bloodwork at their vet until I am heartworm negative. The vet thinks I'm a Chi- JRT mix, about 2 years old, and I've rounded out at 19lb (I should be 15, but quarantine and crate rest...). I go right in my crate with a "bedtime" command, I have mastered "sit" for a treat, and I am about 90% potty trained (my treatment was hindering this). My foster home has other dogs (5lb to 50lb) but no kids or cats. I did meet a cat at the groomer and I wanted to go after it, so no cats for me. I also met an 8-year-old girl there, and she liked to snuggle, so I really liked her. I can be very wary of new people and fast movements with a tendency to fear bite, so please no little kids or chaotic households. I am a heavy notification barker so apartments, attached condos, duplexes, etc. would not be ideal for me. I am a serious creature of habit and I do NOT like missing a meal. I will absolutely let you know if you get off schedule by a few minutes and cry until you make my breakfast or dinner. I'd like a laid back house that enjoys playing ball once in a while (because I am really good at it when I get zoomies), is consistent with crate training, has lots of toys and blankets, and knows how to manage a little dog's diet because I could eat till I explode. Even on my worst days, I STILL scream to be fed at 7am and 5pm on the dot. I'm hoping to find a forever home where we can take it slow and really bond. I can be temperamental at times (did I mention I'm part chi?) so my new family really needs to be familiar with my breed and know I will likely never be a social butterfly with new people or dogs. This means I wouldn't be good at dog parks, either. I just like routine and my close circle, like a lot. Think we can be best friends forever this time?   Please note: We do not have a physical facility and the dogs are not located in Hudson, NH.

This pretty little mama is Celeste. She is around 2 yrs old, about 40 lbs, and just days after giving birth to her 7 puppies, she was dumped with them at a shelter in Georgia. Despite the fact that Harvey’s Hope was beyond full capacity, there was something about the look in her eyes, and we just couldn’t turn her away! Celeste is absolutely terrified of humans, and with just cause: humans failed her when she needed them most. For now, Celeste remains in Georgia, taking time to raise her fluffernutters in the care of our vet partner. She and the babies will head up to New England to find their forever homes sometime in mid May. We are still getting to know her, but will update her bio once we do. For now, we know that she is looking for a home with a kind and patient adopter, to make up for the abandonment she has experienced so far. If you think you could be that person, apply to make the rest of Celeste’s life one filled with comfort and love.
