Female Chihuahua, Basenji,

Ashley is a goof ball.. She likes playing and she likes cuddles and she likes to collect things in her bed. Shoes, toys etc. She does well on a leash and loves doing the school run with mom or dad. She is nervous with new people.but she really is quite playful and thinks she is fercious. She would make a great companion for someone who is home alot or she would be a great family pet for dog savvy older kids. who would like an affectionate little friend. She does take a little while to warm up so her owner will need to be patient in waiting for Ashley to come arround. She is a very sweet, well behaved girl. and seems to do best with one or two people. She is currently in a home with older kids and she does just fine but has her favorites.  apply at www.havendogrescue.org

Male Dachshund, Chihuahua,

Leonard is a 6 month old puppy and he and his brother Giro are a bonded pair. He has been snappy in the past when startled so we do not recommend him around novice dog owners or yound children. Giro is more relaxed of the two and Leo tends to look to Giro for guidance.  We are working with him on being more relaxed. He is chipped, fixed and up to the date all his shots. Please apply at www.havendogrescue.com

Male Dachshund, Chihuahua, Baby

Giro is a 6 month old male, was rescued from a hoarder and had little experience of people up until the dogs were removed from the property. He and his brother Leo where feral when they arrived but they have improved significantly. We feel as though these two would be best in a home together and will not be suited to young kids. Savvy owners will find these two quite entertaining and affectionate. Patience is a necessity.

Male American Staffordshire Terrier, English Mastiff, Adult

Meet Sonny! This sweet boy is a 2-year-old, 60-pound pittie mix. He has a medium energy level and enjoys exploring the neighborhood on walks as often as possible, loves fetching tennis balls in a yard, enjoys car rides, but mostly just wants to be with his human. He's an excellent couch snuggler, and likes to fall asleep with his head on your lap while you watch TV. He gets along with most dogs, and is eager to greet new humans with a gentle sniff to get his head pats. He is crate trained and the mere sight of his favorite treat sends him running for the crate to be tucked in for the night or while his humans are out for a while.

Sonny is a gentle soul looking for a forever or foster home where he can receive the consistent love, structure and guidance that will help him thrive. Experienced dog owners, particusis. larly bully breed experience would be best. Homes with older children would be best, and other dogs are OK on a case by case basis. www.havendogrescue.org

Female Chihuahua, Rat Terrier,

Cute gentle little girl that likes to snuggle and is very much an indoor dog that loves a lap to warm. She is 3 years old and about 10 lbs.  She ideally likes to be with one person so a mom with older kids or a retired active person would be ideal. She like to wrestle with her foster siblings too.

Female Pit Bull Terrier, Terriers (Medium), Adult

Maggie is an adorable young dog that was suffering from demodex. She was a stray and had a close call with the grim reaper at the shelter. She has since been treated and is healing up nicely, has gained some weight, and shes been spayed and is house broken. She would make a great companion for someone who needs a buddy and she does well with other dogs in general.  She can be possesive of her owner with other dogs and this is a newer behavior we have started to see. For this reason we think she would be great as an only dog but in general she loves to [play with other dogs.  If you would like to meet this young female, please apply at www.havendogrescue.org

Female Japanese Chin, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Adult

Jazzie was surrendered to us due to her owner becoming homeless. Jazzie has been nervous since coming to the shelter.

Female Harrier, Terriers (Medium),

Maple is a playful puppy that loves toys, balls, rolling around, and running. Maple loves to come roll and worm under us in bed to cuddle and play.

She has been using a doggie door and enjoys the outdoors with fresh air & bird sounds. She uses a crate to sleep and when it's open during the day she will take voluntary rest breaks in her crate.

Toy availability is a must for her.  Maple is mid puppy training and still needs direction on what is a toy and what is a shoe/sock. She is learning the difference in playing with her dog friend vs her human friend. 

Maple was stray for 3 months so she still show areas where she will freeze and need your gentle guidance to feel safe and learn.  But she is young and likes to learn.

First greetings are slow but doggie/human friendship grows quick with this sweet girl. 

Male Poodle (Miniature), Maltese, Adult

Pierre is a sweetie, he is friendly, confident, happy and loves attention. He is scheduled to be neutered next week and we are working on housebreaking. He is good with older kids and most folks in general.
