Specializes in: Fetch and borrowing under the covers BIDDY'S WOOF FACTS: -Male, mixed breed, 6 years old, 55 lbs.  -Healthy, neutered, up to date on vaccines -Crate-trained and housebroken -Nice balance of active and mellow  -A bit nervous with new people -Sadly, previous owner passed away 🐾 I'm Biddy, an adorably compact little fella who is currently in a foster home as the only pet and I’d kinda like to keep it that way. I am perfectly fine living 1:1 with my human – just me and you, hanging out on the couch, taking a hike, and loving life together! I'm left home for multiple hours during the day while my foster dad works, and I'm well-behaved in my crate. I simply snooze the day away until he comes home to either take me on a walk or play a fun game of fetch in the yard. I can be fairly vocal when seeing other dogs while on our walks. However, I have a neighbor who I call my Shepherd-behind-the-fence friend – we run the fence line together so I MAY have potential to accept a four-legged friend with the right dog, however, I prefer to be your one and only. Typical Day in Foster Home -In crate while foster dad is at work and does well -Yard play and walks make him happy, but lots of room for fetch is what he craves -Likes to hike on leash (hold onto that leash as he goes to chase small animals) -Loves to burrow under the covers at night -Eat, play, sleep, play, repeat -Pretty easy keeper, non-destructive Forever Home -A fun, energetic home with a fenced-in yard and/or having an active forever parent would be ideal -Only pet or possibly a mellow dog around the same size   -Due to some nervousness with new people, we prefer older children and adults  BIDDY'S WISH LIST: https://rescuehaven.org/wishlist/Biddy show less

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

Oreo is 100% a house dog.  I doubt he ever lived on the street - and he definitely wasn’t starved because he’s bit porky at the moment.  Oreo lived with his momma for his entire life.  She loved him, fed him (a bit too much), provided vet care etc. for him.  But his momma lost her home, and Senior Oreo found himself where no dog should be - an owner surrender.  His life has been turned upside down and we’re working to right the ship OREO'S WOOF FACTS: -Oreo is 10 y/o Chi blend  Active still has tons of pep in him.  He has been walking over 2-miles a day and he LOVES it.  -Totally potty trained. -Chill in the house. -Shadow dog - needs to be close to his people. -Great with cats  -Likes or ignores dogs. -Good with kids but prefers not to be manhandled (BTW - no kid should be allowed to manhandle a dog regardless of temperament) -He’s cute but also sort of funny looking (dog?  Cat?  Skunk?) and people ooohhh and ahhhh and smile at him constantly. - Not yappy.  When dogs yap at him, he just moves on (strong sense of pride this one has), and in the house he only barks when he wants food (table scraps - which is not getting) -He LOVES toys, especially squeaky ones. -Mature, experienced older children could easily walk him with proper training. -He snores and it’s cute. -He’s bilingual but doesn’t know commands regardless.   show less

Specializes in Snuggles Does hanging out with a goofy boy bring smiles to your face? If so, then I may be your guy. You see, I have a goofy demeanor, and sometimes my mannerisms are kind of floppy, like a puppy. But don’t let my goofiness fool you, I’m also a good athlete, and playing fetch is one of my favorite things. I also like to take part in doggie antics with my furry foster sibling. Those are both good ways to release energy. Speaking of my furry sibling, I’ve learned a few things from him, and sometimes I’ll even mimic his behavior. My foster mom currently works from home (woo-hoo), so at some points during the day, I sit right by her side and put my head in her lap or my paws on her legs. Yup, I like affection. Yet despite loving to be with my person, I’m also fine being independent – so I’ll hang around the house comfortably as my mom is productive at work. You see, I’m cuddly, not clingy – a good balance! My foster mom says I’m the sweetest thing in the world. Something we wanted to mention is that I find loud noises and lots of commotion to be scary, so we’ll need the right environment for me to feel comfortable, and we’re working on having me acclimate to certain environments. Read on to learn more… Typical Day in Foster Home: -Wakes up 8 am and eats breakfast first-thing; then foster mom brings him into the yard so he can do his business. -Relaxes, naps and window-watches (learned that last one from the other canine in the house) while foster mom works from home -Rarely barks, even while window-watching, and only when my furry sibling does so (another thing I learned from him) -Plays in yard with mom when she takes a work break -Goes back in yard for more playtime, or for a neighborhood walk, when the workday ends around 5:30 -Generally, sleeps in crate but is well behaved when sleeping out of crate as well Forever Home: -Quiet home atmosphere in a non-city location -Fenced-in yard to be able to run around and play in a secure, comfortable environment. Play ball! -Would do fine as only dog in the home or with one doggie companion (lived with canine friend in prior home as well as currently in foster home) -Cuddles and snuggles a must! -A variety of family situations could work; requesting for kids to be age 8+, who understand how to interact with a dog, since he can be skittish when it comes to loud noises and commotion Fill out an application at rescuehaven.org and ask for Teddy, King of Cuddles TEDDY'S WISH LIST : https://rescuehaven.org/wishlist/Teddy show less
