Hope is a 2 year old JRT mix who is part of the Seven Virtue Dogs. This week he's wearing a Superman Cape at his foster home because he is starting to feel like a brand new man. He learned how to run up and down the stairs, walk on a leash and hasn't had an accident in his house. That's the stuff of heroes!

Give the boy a few days to settle in but then he is all about his people. Once he's in the arms of his people he's a total cuddler and snuggler. If you let him sleep with you, he will sleep all night and not move at all. He's not much of an explorer initially. He really is a velcro kind of dog who stays with his people. Once he develops a confidence in his people he will become more adventurous.

He's currently living with another dog who has taught him how to play. They're currently in a tug-o-war competition. It's 2 to 1 in the other dog's favor. We're rooting for you Hope! Hope has lived with big and little dogs and he makes friends where-ever he goes. Sure it may take a few days but if you're looking for a friend for your dog, this is your man. Hey, btw, our little man Hope also is good with cats. He grew up with them. So bring on the cats.

The Seven Virtues are seven sweet dogs who we rescued from a terrible hoarding situation, one of the worst we’ve seen in our almost twenty years of rescue. The hoarders reached out to us and begged us to come take their dogs. When we arrived, we realized we didn’t have the capacity to take all 30-40 of them into our rescue and we called Animal Control to contact other rescues to come help with the rest.

Hope will need a home that has had a dog in the last 3 years (owned personally not a parent's or roommates dog and not petsitting a dog). If there are kids they need to be at least 10 years old.

**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)

**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.
