Hi, my name is Hopa -- though my foster calls me Iris -- and I came from a Reservation Partner. I currently weigh 50 pounds.

I came to Ruff Start with puppies and the puppies are grown and now in their forever homes.

When I arrived I was very shy and timid.  I now come to my family for petting, get along great with the other dogs in the house, and am very eager for someone to teach me how to play with the rope.  I am totally housebroken and sleep on the floor by my foster parents.  I like to spend time outdoors and am so ready for someone to take me on a walk.  I don’t fight the collar, and am very responsive to learning new things.  I also jump in and out of the car and travel without a kennel.

I might be a little shy at first, and like to lay under the kitchen table, because I used to hide under a camper before I was rescued.  I am getting better about laying in the sunlight and exploring things I’m not quite sure of.  I have been around kids, greeted new people in the house and they can pet me also.  I will make a great family dog, as everyone I meet I want to get to know.

I am so ready to meet my new forever family and lead a happy life.

If you are interested in getting to know me better, please fill out an adoption application at www.ruffstartrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application . An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
