Luna is adopted, and lessons learned!

About a month ago we welcomed a new volunteer, Joel, to the Pet Haven community. Not intending to foster, he came to the orientation and saw a photo of Luna (sweet am staff mix) and convinced his family to to try fostering. They soon realized, that Luna was already home.

Yesterday Joel shared the following:

"First of all we would like to say thank you to everyone at Pet Haven. They say dogs are a man's best friend but I think the work you guys do shows that you are a dog's best friend.

Luna was shy and nervous when we got her. She was a little naughty girl but we saw right away that she was very smart and very loyal. She is so intelligent that she picked up on all the things we thought she needed to know to be a great dog for any family.

My son Justin fell in love with Luna and has gotten the most kisses from
Luna than anyone else. He is on pace to set a guinness world record for
kisses. Luna is one of those "bully-breeds" people are scared of. I have to admit that I had a negative preconceived idea myself but thought why not give her a chance...besides we thought it was going to be for a weekend only.
She taught me that any dog can be sweet and that its the person holding the leash that determines how a dog acts.

She is loving and gentle with the kids and all the dogs she has met. Dogs bark around her at the park and she just ignores them and shows her great personality right away. We are proud of her and want to thank you guys for introducing us to her."
