Hope

Hope– The Cuddly Collection

Yellow Female, 1 Year, 50 lbs

Do you have any idea about the power of hope? It makes the day brighter, life happier, and makes troubles fade away. I should know! When hope entered my life in the form of Rescuers, my whole life changed! And when I was named “Hope”, wow, everything came together for me. Now, I am ready to share the power of Hope (that is me) with a very special family of my own.

So, before I tell you how wonderful I am, let me tell you how I went from being hopeless to Hope Full. You see, I was one of many homeless dogs living on the streets. I ended up living under a bleacher and when I was lucky, people dropped enough food to keep me from starving. But the food dropped really wasn’t very healthy and I got very thin. On top of that, I had blood sucking ticks stealing my energy little by little. And if being homeless isn’t bad enough, not very many people were nice to me. Some kids even took a sharpie and colored my feet black. I got to the point where I had no hope, I was afraid to trust, I was exhausted and dirty. Then one day a human angel saw me and coached me out from under the bleachers. Something about her gave me my very first tingle, the first ray of hope that I can remember. When I went up to her and gently licked her hand, my whole world lit up!

I was delivered to a Foster Family who belongs to a group of people known throughout the land as the Defenders of Dogs, the Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno. I was made a member of this elite group and given a badge – a pink heart – that filled my life with happiness. Baths and plenty of good food, a few four-legged foster brothers and sisters, and I am completely out of my shell! I am house trained, crate trained, gentle, oh, and did I mention, completely squeezable, huggable soft and sweet! I love to play, I love my toys, I love a walk, oh, and did I tell you I love to be petted and I am very, very soft? So, what are you waiting for – adopt me and you will never again be Hope less!

Hope is available for adoption from the Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno. Remember, young dog like Hope is a commitment of 15 or so years, and requires an upfront investment in training, and regular exercise. Hope is a cuddly girl who gets along with people, kids, other dogs and even dog-savvy cats. She is learning to walk on the leash, and enjoys going for walks with her human.
