Black mouth cur mix

Keebler is a young man with an old soul!  He is quite mellow around the house, and prefers affection to almost any other reward.  He has been socialized with children of varying ages, and does very well with other dogs.  He is not trustworthy with cats. He can be shy and cautious with new people, but once he warms up he is a big cuddler!

Border collie/blue heeler/hound mix

3 years old

Lucky is a 3 year old male, border collie/heeler/hound mix. Lucky is a sweet fellow, loves to play and to please. He has had a rough start in life after being found as a stray with injuries likely resulting in falling out of a pickup. But he is on the mend and entered the Powder Pals Program at the end of October where he loves to learn new things! He would make a wonderful family dog!

Powder Pals is a cooperative program between New Hope and the Oregon Department of Corrections Powder River Correctional Facility in Baker City, OR in which inmates train dogs to correct behavioral deficiencies, including dogs that have been neglected and abused.  This gives an otherwise difficult-to-place dog, often facing euthanasia, a chance for a future and placement into a loving home.  
Program costs include acquisition of infrastructure to house and handle dogs, medical and temperament testing, training materials, and daily operating expenses.  The program is operated by volunteers, including experienced dog trainers who volunteer to teach inmates dog training, handling and leadership skills.
