Every week, I’ll be featuring adoptable pets from local rescue groups. This week, I’m sharing adorable adoptables from Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA). Ready to meet this week’s pups, Bubba & Hopper? Here we go…
First up, meet Bubba! This handsome Bloodhound mix is approximately three years old. Here’s his bio from FOHA:
“I am one of the lucky dogs (pun intended) that got to go to the Super PetExpo. It was so much fun! Everyone stopped to pet me and say how handsome I am – and of course everyone had to stroke my beautiful ears.
My favorite FOHA volunteer disccovered that I absolutely adore children. I wanted to say ‘Hi’ to all the kids. And I was so good with all the other dogs. What a day!
Bubba is a fun, happy bloodhound. He has a zest for life, and he is very smart. Like most bloodhounds, he is always investigating and loves attention. FOHA saved this sweet boy from a local county pound.”
Do you have the perfect home for this happy hound?
Up next, meet Hopper! This Pit Bull/Hound mix is looking for the perfect home. Here’s his bio from FOHA:
“Hopper has had a tough life. He was found as a stray wandering down a parkway, and his paws were very sore from his time on the run. Because his paws were painful, he would hop when he walked, which earned him the name Hopper. Hopper is now all healed from his days as a stray and anxious to find his forever home.
Hopper is a friendly and affectionate boy who wants nothing more than to love and be loved. He loves to go for walks, but he is strong on the leash and will need someone who can teach him leash manners. He also loves to have you throw his special red toy so he can bring it back to you so you can throw it again. When you are done throwing the toy, he loves to sit beside/on you on the couch and cuddle.
Unfortunately, Hopper was diagnosed with a medical disorder called lymphangiectasia. He is fine as long as he is fed a special food and takes medication. We would love to find Hopper a forever home OR foster home with someone to take care of him and make sure he gets the medication and special food he needs. In you are interested in fostering Hopper, FOHA will cover his medical expenses…all you need to do is give Hopper the TLC that he craves.”
FOHA also has monthly adoption events at the PetSmart in Gainesville and at the Treasure Hound in Chantilly. To find out more info on these events, click here.
(If you have your eye on a specific pet, please email for information
first – not all pets will be at the monthly event. However, there are a
lot of awesome pets in need of homes, so if you’re in the neighborhood,
stop by and meet some of them!)
