Meet Valentine

A funny Valentine to brighten your whole year

Meet Valentine! Valentine is in a foster home in Spokane WA and can be transported to your area. (See information below in the “Adoption Donation” section.)

Valentine is a happy labrador retriever/Catahoula Leopard Dog mix. Catahoulas are known for their energy and playfulness, and Valentine has both. Silly at heart, she loves to leap from across the room, landing in a “let’s play” position in front of the resident dog. Valentine has a fondness for running around outside (she bunny hops across the yard!) and enjoys walks, too. She would be a great candidate for agility training. Valentine relishes searching through her pile of toys to find the one with the best squeaker. She plays well with other dogs and has befriended her foster’s cat (she’s not deterred by its grumpy personality). Valentine does have a herding dog personality, so older kids would be better companions for her.

Valentine has packed a lot into her short life, and she is enjoying the chance to be the young dog that she is. She and her nine puppies were saved from euthanasia in Texas before journeying to Washington to begin a new life. Valentine feels secure in her crate and can amuse herself quietly for hours (but she won’t turn down an opportunity to nap on the couch). Valentine sleeps through the night and her house training is progressing well. She sits patiently for her snacks and meals and is working on other basic obedience commands. Valentine is working on her greeting manners, so a busy household with lots of new people coming and going might be overwhelming for her at first; consistent expectations and training will set Valentine up for success.

Funny Valentine is starting a new phase of her life, and she seeks someone to share in her adventure. Valentine’s ideal home? Lots of love and toys; fun walks or opportunities to run in a yard; dogs and cat siblings would be wonderful but not required; and older kids. She’d never turn down treats, either! Like a butterfly emerging from its cocoon, Valentine is stretching her wings and pivoting from protective, alert-mom mode to trusting pup willing to let someone take care of her. If the thought of sharing that journey with her makes you smile, maybe this Valentine is the one for you!

Adopting from Path of Hope Rescue

• At Path of Hope Rescue, our goal is to make EVERY DOG. WANTED. We are primarily a volunteer organization that focuses on transporting pregnant dogs and puppies from Texas, the number one kill state in America. The dogs we rescue are in poor living conditions and on euthanasia lists in shelters that are inundated with unwanted animals. We want to give these dogs a chance and bring them to the Pacific Northwest to find adoptive, loving homes.

• Our adoption process sets us apart. We specialize in learning about you and your family to find just the right fit for you. Our Matchmakers are not only good at what they do; they will also guide you through the entire process.

• Our Minimum Adoption Donation is $550 for puppies under a year and $450 for dogs one year and older. We are a WA state registered non-profit and rely heavily on adoption donations to cover the expenses associated with saving lives. Our dogs are spayed/neutered prior to adoption; microchipped with free lifetime registration; and up to date on DAPP, Bordetella, and Rabies vaccines (when age appropriate) and heartworm and deworming. Adopters can also earn a $100 training refund if they attend (6) hours of any in person training course.

• We are 100% foster based; our dogs are fostered in loving homes where they are house and crate trained and learn basic obedience and leash skills. Dogs experience socialization opportunities with people, places, and other animals, and they receive the attention required to become well-rounded, healthy, and affectionate dogs that they would not otherwise receive in a shelter environment.

• Our commitment does not end when the dog is adopted. Path of Hope offers post adoption owner support including information on making the dog’s transition to your home a smooth one; recommendations for Preferred Trainers; advice on pet behavior and wellness topics; Facebook litter groups to keep in touch with fellow adopters; and invitations to local rescue hosted events.

• Adopters may choose to travel to Spokane to pick up their dog or use our monthly transport option, Puppy Delivery Express, for an additional delivery donation of $250. Puppy Delivery Express currently delivers dogs throughout Washington and to parts of Montana, Idaho, and Oregon.
