Elroy ~ Namaste ~

Elroy ~Namaste~ WOOF FACTS: -Male, American Staffordshire Terrier/Bulldog/ French Bulldog-mix, 7 years old, 50 lbs. -Big personality—from silly antics to warm and fuzzies with his human -Best smile (teef)!  -Crate-trained, housebroken, knows some commands, good house manners -Needs time to trust due to fear-based behaviors—then he steals your heart -Adult-only home required -Is more comfortable with women -At this time needs to be the only pet in the home -Walks well on leash; can display leash reactiveness    Introduction to Elroy: My name is Elroy… you can call me Bubs (that’s my amateur wrestling alias, wink)! I say that because I have a BIG personality. Sometimes I’ll show it by, starting with a happy wag of my tail, strategically throwing my body into a solo-suplex right onto the living room rug (WrestleMania-style)—all in preparation of getting a full-body rubdown from my foster mom, or sometimes it’s just when I decide it’s time for some zoomies. After acting as a class clown to gain the affections of my foster mom, I make sure to steal her heart even further with my good manners and gentleness. My foster mom will be the first to tell you that despite having some behavioral flaws (I mean, who’s perfect?), I’m entirely manageable and an absolute delight. I do, however, require a patient, mature household who respects my space and understands that I need time to feel comfortable and to build trust. She’ll also tell you that when she recently became my foster mom, after about an hour of giving me space, and following our first walk together, I completely broke out of my shell. I sit nicely while I wait for my food and am gentle when receiving treats. And when I wants me some lovins, I lightly rest my paw on her arm or leg to let her know. I am timid with new people so slow introductions are necessary for me to flourish. Some people get too close too quickly, so keeping me on a shorter leash, especially around small children, is important, as some people, and mostly kids, have no concept of personal space. I’m eager to learn and follow the direction of my human. While I prefer a quiet environment (I happen to partake in yoga activities, “Namaste”), I don’t mind jamming to some trap music when my foster mom is in that groove. I’m an excellent supervisor of chores (don’t even mind the vacuum), and recently, I’ve taken my supervisory chores outdoors and oversee the gardenscaping activities that are happening in our yard. I enjoy chewing on my Nylabone and playing with my rope toy. I must warn you, a good game of tug of war will throw me over the edge of excitement into full WrestleMania mode (or full zoomies)! BTW, I LOVE an evening ice cube and am very skilled at catching treats that are tossed my way.  Elroy’s Background: I was adopted several years ago through Rescue Haven Foundation (RHF). Sadly, I was returned, and RHF found that I am less trusting now due to things that I experienced in my prior home. However, I am currently getting all the TLC that I need and want. So my inner spirit is more apparent, and my soul is more at peace. Elroy’s Typical Day in Foster Home: Our daily routine consists of a morning walk before breakfast. Although I am housebroken and have not been destructive in the home, I currently stay in a crate when my foster mom is out for the day, and I do great with that situation. As a matter of fact, some mornings after I’ve eaten, on my own, I go back in my crate to get some more rest. When my foster mom is home for the day, I’m mostly right by her side, wherever she is. And sometimes I rest my face right on her foot while she’s working in her home office—feeling connected to her brings me peace and joy. We go for another walk later in the day or early evening. While I walk great on a leash, I can display reactiveness with some dogs, loud, large trucks, motorcycles, joggers and bicycles. I respond best when you can get ahead of it so I wanted to make you aware of this. Evenings, I have dinner, and then I’m pretty chill, mostly relaxing or vegging with my human. We go outside once more so I can do my business before bedtime, and then tomorrow, it’s basically “rinse and repeat”, same routine. Elroy’s Forever Home: If what you’ve read above has made your heart feel warm and fuzzy, RHF will gladly speak with you to answer any questions you may have and provide you with further information. RHF is also offering support from our positive-based training network to guide my new human(s) while I acclimate to my new home. We want to make sure I am happy and safe. I will surely become your BFF, provide silly antics to keep you amused, and show my gentleness to steal your heart. Please fill out an adoption application and ask for Elroy (you can also use my WrestleMania name, Bubs—RHF will know who you are asking about). I’ll perform a solo-duplex in preparation of my full-body rub down! Just make sure you have an ice cube for my nightly treat. ELROY'S WISH LIST: https://rescuehaven.org/wishlist/Elroy show less

Jackson - Senior Mush Specializes in: Snooze. Walk. Repeat. Jackson’s Woof-Facts: Male, boxer mix, 12 years old, 80 lbs.  Up to date on vaccines Well-behaved in the home Housebroken Has a tumor near back of leg and is heartworm positive; otherwise, bloodwork and organ function are all within normal range; current decision is to not treat these medical issues since quality and vitality of life are wonderful as he is happy & relaxed. I’m Jackson, a boxer mix, who’s a big mush! Deservingly, I like to receive extra love and attention. You see, the family that I was part of for 12 years dumped me at the shelter, providing nothing more than my name and age to the staff. Therefore, I’m sure you’ll wholeheartedly agree that the love and attention I’ve received since under Rescue Haven Foundation’s care is what I truly deserve. I’m a senior boy, however, I can get around like a champ, and sometimes I even act like a puppy (young at heart, they say!). My most favorite thing of all is when I sit on the floor alongside my human to receive some pets! Are you up for that? Read on to learn more… Jackson’s Typical Day in Foster Home: Likes sleeping in (who doesn’t–woof), but is OK when woken up at 6:30 to start the day Eats meals at his own pace; loves drinking water; takes medication with ease Thoroughly enjoys going on walks–gets excited when he sees that his human has a leash-in-hand in preparation for their journey Sun worshipper–finds the rays shining through a window and hangs out right in that spot Sleeps peacefully in crate Jackson’s Forever Home: Willingness to go on walks to enjoy those outdoor journeys together Fenced-in yard ideal but not required Not a big fan of steps but can do them; may bark if you are on a different floor of the house (can I get a shout-out for “ranch-style house”?!?) If you’re looking for a big mush, please fill out an application at rescuehaven.org ask for Jackson show less

Squat – aka Pepe~Specializes in: Deep crush on his canine companion. I’m Squat, and I’m a happy, funny, sweet little boy! Although my foster parents like to call me Pepe (and I do answer to that name), I believe my nickname could have been “Low Rider”. You see, my body type is “short to the ground”, and when I’m playing and running around the yard, I take the most adorable little steps. I’m friendly with people – I like to put my head in the lap of my humans and jump on the bed in the morning and at night to show them my affection. However, I’m not yet a big cuddler; unless, of course, we’re talking about cuddling with other canines – then I’ll cuddle until the cows come home! My foster parents feel that my love for other dogs is completely endearing! I’m very playful with my canine buddies, and sometimes I don’t understand the full concept of personal space; therefore, I’m very happy that my canine BFF, Bianca, doesn’t mind that one iaota. Squat’s Woof-Facts: -Male, mixed-breed, about 5 years old, 38 lbs. -Neutered, up to date on vaccinations -Medium energy level -Crate-trained – include a frozen Kong with peanut butter and kibble, or a raw bone, and he’ll stay settled in this crate for about 4 hours  -Housebroken; still marks a bit so working on that -Southern boy found as a stray; came to New Jersey from a shelter in North Carolina Squat’s Typical Day in Foster Home: -Understands the daily routine -Wakes up early and foster dad takes him in the yard for a quick potty break while foster mom and canine siblings are still sleeping. While he’d love to wake them all up and get this party started, he knows he has to go back in his crate for a wee bit longer before the day’s festivities begin. But when it’s time, he goes straight-away to his canine pal Bianca to wish her a “good morning!” -Eats 2x a day; is food-driven which helps with his training; is also learning that counter surfing and eating his canine buddies food is not an approved Olympic sport -Playtime in the yard with his canine housemates happens a couple of times a day -Wants to follow his humans everywhere – enjoys human company – particularly likes to watch foster mom as she goes about her daily tasks -Likes to be taken on walks in the woods so could be a good hiking buddy; is currently refining his leash-walking skills -Clock strikes 8 pm – TV time with humans and canine buddies. At 10 pm, it’s time to say “good night”; goes in crate with his Kong; falls asleep and mainly sleeps through the night  Squat’s Forever Home: preferably adopted into a home that has another dog so he will have a canine companion or a home that has access to doggie friends. Will be a good fit in many home environments; needs humans that will help him continue to acclimate and thrive in his wonderful new life Interested in having Squat’s little legs running around your home?
