Good with kids

Hugs is an 9 month old Yorkie mix. He weighs 13lbs. He was a rescue from the shelter. He won over the staff with his shy demeanor but then he began to blossom with their love. He originally would hang out at the back of the dog run but then when our volunteer went to meet him, she got down on her knees and he came up and put his head on her lap. It was love.

Hugs lives with other dogs and finds his confidence with other dogs. He will head towards another dog before he does people initially. But when he knows his people it's nothing but love. It just takes someone willing to go slow at first, not grabbing or acting too quickly with him and once he loves you you could dunk him upside down and he'd come back up with kisses to smother you. He's was a snuggler and a cuddler within 48 hours with his foster home. They gave him space and time and soon he was dying for their affection.

Hugs will need a home that has had experience before and 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 children they need to be dog savvy and at least ten 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.
