A Special Dog Who Needs a Special Home


Hope is a super affectionate two-year-old Terrier mix who loves every person she meets and has quickly become a staff favorite here at ARF. In fact, she loves people so much, she is now our go-to-girl for school and nursing home visits. While she has a heart full of love for people, she is not a fan of other dogs or cats. As sweet as Hope is, anyone would be happy to have her as their one and only.

When she arrived at the Adoption Center, Hope had severe swelling in both of her front wrists. She was seen by orthopedic specialists, and while unable to determine the exact cause of the swelling, they were able to advise us on treatment. With restricted activity over the past month, her condition has improved greatly. Most of the swelling has subsided and she is now able to walk with only a mild lameness. At this time, no further treatment is required. However, as she ages, it is possible that Hope may need further treatment if the condition worsens. Should this occur, ARF is willing to support Hope’s needs at a veterinary specialty hospital of our approval.
