Rusty had himself a wonderful time getting out and walking around town, all thanks to Amanda Henry!!! It's so great for these guys to get out, socialize and see new things. Amanda had only great things to report about how well behaved Rusty was on their walk. Some special person out there is really missing out on this guy. He's a total love bug with a great temperament and personality! If you think Rusty may be a good fit for you visit our website and complete an application www.hcwdogrescue.com

Say hello to Howard! He is another dog that we pulled from Daviess County animal Control to keep from being euthanized, so we don't know anything about his history, but since he has been in our care he has been a sweetheart. He plays well with dogs of his same energy level, he and Pretzel have a blast romping and rolling in the grass together, playing in the pool and chasing balls. We aren't sure about this gorgeous guys blend of breeds, but we believe he is an Aussie blend. He's around a year old. His deep and soulful eyes are sure to steal your heart! If you are interested in Howard, visit our website and complete an application or inquiry! www.hcwdogrescue.com

This beautiful little girl is Jenna. She is around a year old and a dachshund/beagle blend we believe. Her gorgeous Merle coat makes her very unique. She has tons of personality and energy and plays well with other dogs. She's a very sweet girl that is sure to steal your heart. Thanks so much to Amanda Henry for getting her out for a walk around town yesterday, she looks good in yellow, don't you think???

Everyone please help us welcome Pretzel! This playful girl has such a great personality. She loves to romp and roll with other dogs, splash in a pool or play fetch. She has such a puppy face and personality, but the vet believes she is around 3 years old from looking at her teeth. She was pulled from a kill shelter that was euthanizing for space, so we aren't sure about her history. She has the most beautiful blue coat with light brindle undertones and gorgeous eyes! We aren't sure of her breed but we believe she is possibly Weimaraner mixed with possibly Doberman/lab. If you would like to learn more about Pretzel or complete an application, visit our website www.hcwdogrescue.com
