Introducing Alfie!! Alife is a 1 year old Brittany Spaniel/Beagle cross (we know that for sure because he had a DNA test done), although he looks larger in the pictures the guy only weights about 25lbs, small stature and long legs.

Alfie, is looking for a very specific home. He was surrendered to us for fear biting his owners. We know that Alfie lived the first 6 months of his life with very little human contact and then was surrendered to the shelter which was a very overwhelming experience for him. Luckily for Alfie, a nice couple came along and adopted him, even put him though heart worm treatment. If it hadn't been for this nice couple, Alife wouldn't be here today. Unfortunately, for Alfie, he hasn't been able to overcome his fear, and will bite if he feels cornered and overwhelmed and for this reason (his previous owner had children)he was surrendered to us. What we've learned about Alfie is that he will bond fairly quickly with a new person if they are patient with him. Alfie is currently in a foster home and very quickly he began to trust his foster mom and became comfortable. Truly he is a very affectionate and loving dog.

He gets along great with other dogs, they actually seem to help him feel comfortable. Alfie is looking for a very specific foster or permanent home that will be very patient with him, and without children. Someone who has experience with a wonderful but fearful, anxious dog would be ideal.

f you are interested in adding Alfie to your family, please go to www.hcwdogrescue.com/adoptionapplication and complete an application.

Introducing Paul!!! He is a 3 year old small but mighty Sheltie, Pug, Beagle.....basically he's an adorable mutt. He has a thicker body build than his sister so I would say he is a small/medium sized guy. He weights 25-30 lbs and is full of personality. He came to us from a local shelter with his sister Annie, and he is excelling being at the rescue. He absolutely loves toys, he and Annie love playing tug of war. Paul will sit for a treat and we are working on teaching him other things as well.

He currently is residing at our rescue and he uses her doggy door religiously to go outside and do his business. We are working on introducing him with other dogs but so far he and Annie are having a blast.

Will update as we know more about his and her personality.

If you are interested in adding Paul to your family, please go to www.hcwdogrescue.com/adoptionapplication and complete an application.

Give a big HCW welcome to Bella the beautiful Beagle. Bella is 5 years old. She was surrendered to a local shelter because her families living situation changed and they couldn't take her with her. Bella belonged to a little boy, although they are no longer together her love for children continues. She is fine with other dogs, honestly she could take them for leave them. At some point in her life she evidently had a hematoma on her right ear, so if you notice that ear is shorter that's why. Her ears work great and are perfect if you ask me.

She is currently in a foster home where her foster mom has discovered that Bella is more of a laid back take it easy kind of beagle. Here is a list of her favorite activities:

* laying on the couch with a soft blanket watching TV
* laying in the humans bed under the covers anytime of day
* laying on the porch watching the deer In the field
* laying in the backseat of the car for a good ride

Is anyone noticing a trend here, she is on the lazy side but she will get up for food, water, treats, and she is delighted when you get home, talks to you the whole nine yards!! Seriously this chick couldn't be any easier, she isn't destructive so she doesn't require a crate and she is very house trained.

If you are interested in adopting Bella please follow the link to submit and adoption application: www.hcwdogrescue.com/adoptionapplication
