Available Dogs

Leonard
Male Dachshund, Chihuahua, Young

Leonard is a 1 year old dog who arrived with his brother Giro. Leo thinks he is the leader when in a pack of many dogs and he is shy with new people. He has lived in a foster home with many dogs and a foster home with adolescent children. Leo is aloof when you first meet him and after developing a relationship he snuggles in bed, plays around the house, and "talks" to the neighbors in the yard.

He had been snappy as a puppy when startled or touched without his permission, so we do not recommend him around novice dog owners or young children.  Leo does well with true dog people and a calm confident adult leader.  He will need some time to adjust, so a slow trasition for this Doggie is a must.

Maggie
Female Pit Bull Terrier, Terriers (Medium), Adult

Maggie is an adorable young dog that was picked up as a stray. She had a close call with the grim reaper once she arrived at the shelter due to her dermodex.

She was welcomed to our rescue, her condition was treated, and healed up nicely. Maggie has gained weight, been spayed, and is house broken. She would make a great companion for someone who needs a buddy. She is smart and likes learning new tricks and commands. Maggie loves her owner so much that she wants to protect them. She is a great only dog in the home or a home with the right larger gentle dog that allows her to be opinionated. She loves playing with her foster brother, but loves her human attention more.

If you would like to meet this young female, please apply at www.havendogrescue.org

Minnie2
Female Miniature Pinscher, Chihuahua,

Minnie is a rather dominant female min pin mix and she has quite a bit of energy. She is a love in general but she can be rather defensive with new people. Particularly men. She needs an owner who is a stong leader and another quite energetic pup too play with. If she is given some space she will come around rather quickly to a new home. She is not a dog that will enjoy being home all day alone so a companion for her will be important. She is an excellent martial arts teacher to her siblings :) Apply havendogrescue.org

Dash
Male Chihuahua, Terriers (Small), Adult

Dash has been with us for a long time. He was escued from the euthanize list at a local shelter as he was extremly fearful. Dash made a large amount of progress here at his first foster home, learning to co exsist with the other dogs and lose the fear he had for me. However he was still terrified of new people. We recently moved him to a new foster home and he is doing great with evetyone in the 5 person family. Dash needs love and devotion. For this he will never leave your side. He loves his people and seems to be adapting to new people much better now. We think Dash is finally ready to go to a new home with people with will allow him to be scared in the begining abd let him work through it. 

Dash is approximatly two years old and we want him to succeed. He is handsome and snuggly and enjoys his walks and play time, If you can commit to giving Dash at least a week to try out then please let us know. All of our dogs have had difficult pasts and we need to send them home with people who are compassionate and willing to work on the FOREVER HOME!. please apply at havendogrescue.org

Chica
Female Terriers (Small), Shih Tzu, Senior

Chica is a busy little ole lady who we were told was a breeder dog and looking at her condition we do believe this to be true.   She is partially blind, but still very active aand quite agile for a senior. She can be a bossy boots but she settles down quickly.. She is fond of the other dogs once they realize she is the boss LOL. She mothers the youngsters at the foster home and teaches them the wrestling skills they will need to get by in the real world. . She runs plays barks and does her thing without any real restrictions

Chica needs a home where the people want to help her succeed.  She loves people and will come to anyone who calls her name. She looks a lot less pretty than the pups she has produced over the years  so she needs a chance for people to give her a chance to show her sweet side an give her a stable home. If you can commit to giving her at least a week to try out then please let us know. All of our dogs have had difficult pasts and we need to send them home with people who are compassionate and willing to work on the FOREVER HOME!. please apply at havendogrescue.org

Velvet - Mini 3
Female Chihuahua, Miniature Pinscher,

This sweet little girl was horribly neglected and eventually arrived at the shelter with a mouth full of horribly infected teelth and gums. She had 34 or her 36 teeth removed as soon as she arrived. She is spayed and has a super soft coat that feels like Velvet. She needs a family who will give her a few days to warm uo. She loves her people and used the dog door  well and would love a compqanion to hang out with all day and be loved on. This is a dog that we think would do well with respectful kids and she loves to play outside. She is house broken and weighs about 10 lbs. she has has a lot of vettig so this little girl should be good for quite some time as long as her family gives her a chance to adapt. Velvet would make an excellent family pet. Devotion to this dog is not negotiable. We need someone who will love her uncondiotionally. She has been thrrough enough already.  Apply at havendogrescue.org
