Check out Hope, a 1-year-old female black-and-tan hound mix. Hope is this week's Humane Society of West Alabama's pet of the week. She has a smooth, shiny black and tan coat, and she weighs about 43 pounds, even though she seems like she is all legs!
Hope is a very sweet dog that is full of energy. She is still like a big puppy and gets so excited to see you. Because she has been in a shelter environment for so long, she will need some help with socializing and training. But her loving personality will make it all worthwhile. When the HSWA's volunteers have taken Hope out for play dates, they've said she was calm, responsive and happy.
Hope does have too much energy for an apartment, and she will require a fenced-in yard. She seems to do well with other dogs and should be fine with children 12 and up, just not younger because she is still a bit jumpy. She has started on her crate training. Hope is up-to-date on her vet care, is spayed, is heartworm negative, and is microchipped. She is on heartworm and flea/tick prevention.
Come meet this fun-loving pup and see what a great gal she is!
