Hope is an 8 year old Shepherd mix who was abandoned when she got sick. She is leishmania positive but has received her treatment and blood tests have shown that her organs are still okay. After being abandoned, she wanted to return to her family so badly that she jumped into a strangers car when she had the chance, which was when she was brought to the shelter for protection.
Hope is best as the only pet in the house as she has been trained as a guard dog. She is not aggressive and has not been trained to attack, but she does bark. She is a sweetheart though who is very playful and loves water!
We are looking for a family that doesn't mind her guarding behaviour, but will not use her as a guard dog. We want her to be a dog who has a home, not a dog living outside.
Due to her leishmania, she will need to get regular blood tests every (6 months-1 year) to make sure that her organs stay in good shape. She is getting her titer test soon and can come to Belgium in May!
