Elroy ~Namaste~ WOOF FACTS: -Male, American Staffordshire Terrier/Bulldog/ French Bulldog-mix, 8 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

Sarge – Tennis Pro Specializes in: Family & Fetch! Sarge's Woof Facts: Male, shepherd mix, 8 years old, 63 lbs. – has a blonde fluffy undercoat but not sure of other breed(s) Neutered, up to date on vaccines Knows basic commands – will sit and give paw   Surrendered from previous owners due to them running into financial issues I’m Sarge (you can call me Sergeant, if you’d like). I’m an all-around great dog, and here are my top three favorite things: (1) I love being around my foster family – hanging out with them and receiving pets is wonderful; (2) I love going on walks – as a matter of fact, I’ll bring my leash right to you when I’m ready (I’m smart and handsome); and (3) I enjoy playing fetch with tennis balls and really excel at the game (just watch me, and you may think I was a former trick dog). My activity level is a great balance of mellow and play. Please read on to learn more details about me... Sarge’s Typical Day in Foster Home: Wakes up along with his foster family – weekdays at 6 a.m.; sleeps in a bit more on weekends, rising around 7-8 a.m. Eats breakfast first thing (likes both wet and dry food). Next, foster dad takes him on walk; does his business like clockwork (number 1 and number 2) Loves playing with tennis balls so much that we may need to enter him in the U.S. Open (woof!)  Stays home uncrated while foster family is at work/school Favorite spot to lay down and chill is right near the door Goes for a mile walk between 3-4 p.m. Dinner time is around 5-6 p.m. (starts to whimper when he’s hungry) Loves to be pet, especially a firm, yet gentle scratch by his kidneys or a gentle belly rub. Not much of a cuddler or couch potato, although he will come on the couch if invited. Is perfectly content being near his people while laying on the floor.   Goes for a final potty break of the day right before bedtime. Sleeps on his own downstairs while foster family bedrooms are upstairs.  Sarge’s Forever Home: Humans with a semi-active lifestyle would be a good fit Would be great as the solo dog of the home.  Fenced-in yard would be a HUGE asset, to give him space for playing catch and roaming around outside with his humans If you’re searching for an all-around great dog, who equally loves to play and loves to chill alongside his humans, please fill out an application at rescuehaven.org and ask for Sarge, THE Tennis Pro.   show less

Serenity  Specializes in: Snuggles and the Bunny Hop! I’m Serenity, a super-sweet girl who loves to snuggle. I’m not choosy about whether we snuggle on the couch or snuggle in the bed, I just want to make sure that we get our snuggles in! I’m letting you know that I’m more serene, as my name indicates, since Rescue Haven Foundation took me into their rescue. You see, I was hit by a car, which was very scary. It was determined that I needed to have my front leg amputated. Please don’t fret though. This tripod pooch is doing great, and I didn’t let that slow me down one bit. I’m full of energy, and I run and play just like other doggies. My foster parents say that I can even jump high and fast – reminiscent of a bunny rabbit! To top it all off, I’m absolutely fantastic with children (I LOVE kids!) Please read on to learn more about me… Serenity’s Woof-Facts  Female, pitbull,1-1/2 to 2 years old 40 lbs. Up to date on vaccines Heartworm negative; currently on heartworm prevention, and flea and tick prevention Knows “sit” command; would be able to learn more commands easily, using treats, since very food motivated Tripod doggie but that doesn’t slow her down Great with other dogs, preferably her size; does OK with smaller dogs – just initially, will get in their face on the first introduction Has not been cat tested so not sure if she can live with felines – let us know if you have a feline family member so we can assess further Serenity’s Typical Day in Foster Home Wakes up early, around 5-5:30 a.m., and does potty outside first thing; adorably does a little dance in the yard before finishing her business (go girl!) While foster mom is in the shower, the canines in the house engage in a bit of wrestling-on-the-bed and running through the house escapades Once foster mom is ready for work, the canines go into their kennels until 3 p.m., when foster dad pops back home for a while; then it’s an hour of afternoon playtime and potty breaks  Loves to play with her toys; needs heavy-duty kind Return back to our kennels till foster mom gets home at about 6:30 p.m. Once again time to do our business before we come in and eat; she is separated from the other dogs at mealtime, as she’s a bit food aggressive with other dogs (not with humans) After my humans finish their dinner, we all settle in and cuddle on the couch under our snuggle blankets, watching a movie or tv show About 9 p.m., one last potty break and off to bed – snuggling right next to foster momma all night long (sleeping like a baby!) Serenity’s Forever Home Humans who can run and play alongside her by day…As well cuddle with her by night A fenced-in yard to run around in A family with children will surely be icing on the cake!  If you are looking for a life filled with sweetness, fun and snuggles, fill out an application at rescuehaven.org and ask for Serenity (scouts honor, she’ll do some bunny hops for you show less

Specialty: Great Roommate! Hey, I’m Thor, and I’d be one heck of a great roommate, so I’m searching for the person who I want to share my life with. Ideal traits of my human would be something along the lines of… couch potato, video gamer, TV series binger, chill-out-in-the-yard, and remote or hybrid-worker – so we can spend more time together. Oh, and someone who agrees that vacuums should only be taken out when it is an absolute necessity (woof). You see, I’m a no-frills type of guy. Hanging out one-on-one with my human is ideal – I don’t need to attend the hottest BBQ in the neighborhood. I don’t ask for much – mainly companionship. I mean, it feels so great to have my human with me, but that doesn’t mean I’ll completely invade your space. For example, I want to be in the same room as you so we can hang out together, but I don’t feel there’s a need for all that mushy cuddly type of stuff (I know you get it!). Promise, I’ll let you have full control of the remote when we’re chilling in front of the TV. And I do my No. 1 and No. 2 business properly in the yard so I won’t be messing up your bathroom either. On nice days, we can spend some time together in the yard… that’s the way I like to experience the outdoors (sniff, run, sniff, run, repeat). I have a foster mom who’s been my current roommate – she knows a lot more about me -- so if I’ve piqued your interest, please fill out an adoption application with RHF @rescuehaven.org, and she’ll share many stories with you about our cohabitation. For now, read on to learn a bit more…   Thor's Woof Facts: Male, mixed breed, 9 years old and 40 lbs. (good compact size) Low-medium energy level Already knows some commands and is willing to learn new tricks – food motivated which helps!  Doesn't need to be “attached” to his person like a Velcro dog but wants to bond and be close-by so he knows you are with him Housebroken and non-destructive when left alone Would love to be your one and only pet but gets along with older female dogs Thor’s Typical Day in Foster Home: Eats regular dog kibble diet; enjoys Kongs and food puzzles Plays in the yard a few times a day with his human; enjoys fetch  Don’t share this randomly but, when running, kind of hops like a bunny (current foster mom thinks it’s completely adorable so he’s milking it!)  Low-maintenance once bonded and settled into a home along with his person(s)  Prefers to sleep in the room with his person as well Thor’s Forever Home: A small house is ideal to offer the coziness and togetherness he thrives in Fenced-in yard preferred for active/outdoor time vs. being taking on walks in the neighborhood     show less
