#572 Hope, Female, One Year Old

Hope had a rough start. We don’t know her full background, but we know she was held in a shelter for 6 months in west Texas. She had very little to no activity for long periods, and it was very hard on her. She is very loving and craves attention plus loves to snuggle and play. Because her early days were sheltered in a tiny area, she can get easily overwhelmed or afraid of new things. She needs someone who loves her and wants to be her hero to help show her the world.

Hope is very pretty and weighs 32lbs, approx 20mos old. She is a border collie mix, likely Australian cattle dog per the vet. She is very athletic and LOVES to run & chase balls. She is looking for a patient family who can help her overcome the trauma of her early months in tiny enclosures. Understandably, she can be distrustful upon 1st meeting, but warms up quickly! She is best with older dogs or solo. She is not good with cats. She is kennel trained & very good on a leash. She would thrive in a home that is patient without too much stressful change or high foot traffic. She would be an amazing running buddy. She needs someone who would continue her training, be devoted, and help her become the loving girl she wants to be!
