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!

If you’re interested in getting to know me, contact You can fill out an adoption application HERE.

Dog of the Week: Ali


Ali 2Ali is a lively nine-year-old Australian Shepard/Husky mix that is equally happy chasing a Frisbee or tennis ball as she is quietly watching TV with her family. She knows “sit,” “shake,” and “down” and is working on “give” for her toys. She currently lives with her foster family and a black Lab and is fine with other dogs. Cats are also okay if they are used to dogs. Ali likes to sleep on the floor by her foster family’s bed but she would love to find a forever home where she could sleep peacefully knowing she’s finally home.

She is spayed, house trained, and up to date on her shots.

For more information about Ali, please contact The adoption application can be found HERE.
