Foster Hero Needed! 

Seriously how is this snuggle bug still homeless! Hope is a pretty chill dog in general, but when she is allowed to cuddle she immediately scoots as close as she possibly can to you and then passes out into the deepest sleep.
She is still looking for a foster home for over a month now (this is in her temp foster home on the weekends only)–yep, that’s right, this could be yours day in and day out (she’s seriously so easy).  So if you know anyone who wants 65 pounds of love in their lap without having to pay for any expenses, send them to us and have them email [email protected] or fill out the app here and email it to us please http://www.ocpbr.org/foster/foster-application/
Hope info: We rescued her from Orange County Animal Animal Shelter on 8/7/17. She is around 3 years old, her skin was badly infected so it’s very clear she was neglected and she has been used over and over again in her young life for breeding…her poor nipples and skin are so very low hanging. She is crate and house trained.
