Dog of the Week: Kismet


Hi, my name is Kismet which means “fate” or “destiny” and I hope I’m destined to be your best friend. My foster mom tells everyone that she thinks I am an English Toy Terrier with possibly some Chihuahua mixed in. She says that means I have both beauty and brains! The vet told me I am two years old and weigh 10 pounds.

Kismet 2I love to cuddle under the blankets with my foster mom and sleep next to her every night. I entertain myself by playing with toys and toss then snap them in true Terrier fashion. I am fun but not too energetic and my foster mom really appreciates that! She wanted me to tell you that I would do best with a single person or couple who spend time at home. I do get nervous around kids so I would be happiest with an adult – maybe even an adult all to myself because I can see myself being a princess!

I am up to date on my vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. For more information about me, please contact An adoption application can be found HERE.

Dog of the Week: Mila


Mila is terrier mix. She is an incredibly sweet, lovable, and loyal dog. She loves to be around her people all of the time—she always has to be in the same room as them. She loves attention and especially loves a good belly rub. She gets along really well with other dogs and hasn’t met a person that she doesn’t like. Mila does really well on a leash and knows how to sit and stay. She does really well in her kennel and doesn’t bark unless the other dogs in the house start barking. She is very quick to learn and motivated by treats. Mila doesn’t mind being in her kennel at night to sleep and during the day while we are at work. Mila has made a lot of progress potty training. Mila has not been cat tested.

Milah 2Mila came to us a couple of months ago as a puppy with demodectic mange. This is a mange caused by tiny mites that are present on most dogs but on some their populations explode. Puppies are susceptible. Mila was treated and her hair has grown back in where it had thinned from the mange. This type of mange can wax and wane for several months so she may need to be treated again if it returns.

Mila is up to date on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. She is nine months old and weighs about 35 pounds.

Dog of the Week: Oz

Oz 3

Oz is a very stable dog – great with people of all ages, dogs and dog savvy cats. He has his share of energy so he needs somebody who will ensure that he gets the exercise he needs. He is best walked using an easy-walk harness which helps him walk without pulling so much.

OzOz is a dog that will attach himself to one person. He is friendly to everyone but during his time with us it was very clear that he had a favorite person. Oz is a super dog that has been exposed to many different situations and has always been perfectly behaved. You will love this dog the minute you meet him.

Oz is up to date on vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. Oz is approximately a year and a half old and he weighs 67 pounds.

Dog of the Week: Ted


Hi! My name is Ted and I’m a 4-5 year old Jack Russell Terrier. I’m a jack of all trades! When I’m inside, my favorite place will be cuddled up next to you or playing with my toys on the floor. I think squeaky toys and rope toys are amazing! When I’m outside, I’m a brave explorer and would love to have a yard to run around in.

I grew up in a home with 41 other dogs and didn’t get a lot of individual attention, but I am loving life now! I’m learning to sit and down, have good indoor manners, and love attention and treats so I should learn fast if you’re patient with me. I’m a great walker and happily go in my kennel when my foster family is away and sleep in my kennel at night. I would do better in a home without cats (they’re fun to chase!) but I get along great with my doggy foster sisters. I’d love to meet my forever family and come cuddle with you!

Dog of the Week: Cisco

Cisco is a Chihuahua mix and he’s looking for a quiet forever home. Could that be yours?


Hello, my name is Cisco and I can be a shy dog. I’m looking for a home I can call my own with people I can trust. I am very shy around new people until I get to know them. When I am unsure, I hide under the bed or in my kennel. I am getting better at coming out of hiding when my foster mom calls my name. When my foster mom sits on the couch I like to sit on her lap and take a nap.

Cisco 2I get along with other dogs and children just fine. I like the warmer weather because we get to go on walks and I am good at walking on
a leash. Sometimes my foster mom lets me sleep in her bed at night, now that I’m better with my house training. I sometimes slip up, but I am trying. I would like to be in a home in which I don’t have to be in a kennel all day long. I am a fun-loving dog after I get to know you and I am looking for my forever home. If you think we would be a good match, please come and meet me.

Cisco is neutered and up to date on his shots.

For more information about Cisco, please contact Correy at or call her at 319-310-5448. You can complete an application HERE.

Dog of the Week: Amber Rose

This week we introduce you to Amber Rose. Okay, she may have a nearly toothless grin, but she’s all heart and a great little dog!

Amber Rose

Hello there! My name is Amber Rose and I’m a 12 year old terrier mix. My foster mom says I’m the sweetest thing ever. I love to snuggle on the couch with people, but I’m also content to sleep in my little dog bed. I’m very good about letting her people know when I have to go outside.

Amber Rose 2My only flaw, and honestly, my foster mom thinks it’s cute, is that I don’t have a lot of teeth, so I need my dog food soaked before I eat it. I am disinterested in cats, and I like other dogs. After I get over my initial shyness, I am warm and loving. I am easy to live with, too. I’m not much of a barker and I don’t need a lot of exercise, although I’m always up for a walk.

Amber Rose is up to date on her shots and house trained. If you would like to meet Amber Rose please email Sonia at You can also fill out an adoption application HERE.

Dog of the Week: Ziva

It’s Monday again, which means it’s time to meet another great Last Hope dog of the week. This week we are featuring lovely Ziva. 


Hi. My name is Ziva and I’m around seven years old. I’m a little timid and cautious, especially around men, but once I trust you I’ll be your best friend. I currently live with my foster family and I have a doggy best friend I grew up with named Mr. Brooks. My foster family has another dog and cats, whom I don’t mind living with.

Ziva 2I’m pretty mellow but I can be playful when the mood strikes me. I like to eat. I like to eat A LOT. My foster family has to feed me separately from my other furry family so I don’t eat their food, too. I like car rides, especially if I get to put my head out the window. I like to have some peace and quiet for my naps. A quiet home would really suit me well. I’m not sure how I’d do with children.

Recently, I found out I have something called Diabetes. It’s not too bad but I have to have insulin twice a day. I’ve been spayed and am up to date on my shot. I really hope to find my forever home!
