This lovely lady is back with us after several years due to the recent passing of her human, who was the father of one of our regular volunteers.  Our volunteer had expected to adopt Hope in honor of her father.  Unfortunately, her current oldest Dobe and Hope don't get along, so that plan went by the way.  

You can read all about her in the original profile below. Suffice it to say, she was a happy part of her adoptive home these years since she was placed, and she’d love nothing more than to be with a family once more, as soon as possible.  She’s easygoing and agreeable – just a lovely, sweet girl. One of our volunteers said “Hope is one of the sweetest dogs I’ve ever known. She loves to snuggle with you.

Also, her coat will fill in and regain its shine now she is on better food and supplements. 

So go ahead and read her original profile, and see if she may be a match for your home. You won’t be disappointed if you do. 

What a touching story comes with this dear Dobergirl.

She came to Elijah's House because her mom fell on hard times and had to move to a rent-assisted apartment where pets are not allowed.  This double tragedy (hard times/surrendering beloved pet) was actually a triple tragedy, because the owner had rescued this dear girl when she was a mere two weeks old and had hand-raised her since then.

She had discovered the crippled little baby when looking at a litter; she saw that there was trouble with a leg and that the puppy was not able to get equal access to her mom for nourishment due to her injury.  She realized that it was virtually inevitable that the puppy would die as a result, so she took her home and nurtured her to adulthood. 

They've been loving and constant companions since then, and it is extremely sad that they must be separated now.  That having been said, this dear Dobergirl has now been rescued twice and is doing very well as she awaits the arrival of a new family that will love and care for her in the absence of her first human mom.

Her left front leg has not developed properly.  It has a fused elbow and resulting atrophy.  Thankfully there is no pain associated with it, and she uses it in a limited way as she plays and nests.  Aside from this obvious deformity, she is an absolutely fabulous girl.  She has a beautiful dark blue coat. (although due to the hard times, she did have fleas when she arrived and had a little indication as a result of scratching/biting.  That's all clearing up nicely now that the fleas are gone.)

She is happy, healthy, sweet, playful, and loving.  She has no difficulty jumping in and out of an SUV; she loves going for rides; and she even likes baths.

In short, this is a perfect little Dobergirl who, through no fault of her own, has one leg that isn't just right.  It presents no problem for her whatsoever, and she has the gift of life and good health thanks to someone who rescued her and nurtured her until hardship circumstances interfered.  Now she awaits another rescue by a family that recognizes her beauty, sympathizes with her circumstances, and has a heart of the kind that is drawn to the beautiful companion that she is.

If you're that sort, make an appointment to meet her once your application is approved and spend a little time with her.  I'm guessing that if you do, she'll be in a loving home again in short order, and that the HOPE of both a lovely dog and a loving family will be fulfilled in the process.
