Editor's note: This is a weekly series called "Pet of the Week" where we feature a companion up for adoption from Last Hope animal rescue.
Mr. Handsome is a 5-year-old Basset Hound mix—though he looks almost purebred—who loves people and would make a great, easygoing family dog.
Mr. Handsome is from the Joplin, MO, area, where his family lost their home in the tornado of May 2011. They then lived in a FEMA trailer, but when the trailers were taken away the family couldn't find a new home that would allow them to take Mr. Handsome with them.
He really needs a stable, permanent home, as he was with his original family for his entire life. He doesn't like puppies, but is good with grown dogs and children.
Adoption fee is $200, cash only. Contact Sue at 612-242-9909 or firstname.lastname@example.org to meet him, or come to Last Hope's adoption event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Saturday at the Apple Valley Petco.
See Mr. Handsome and many other dogs and cats looking for homes on the Last Hope pet rescue website.
