Adopted Dog Monday!

Riley, our spaniel mix with significant separation anxiety, has found his new home! Riley's new mom met him when she attended a seminar co-costed by Pet Haven a couple of weeks ago. Riley will be helping his new mom at her job on a daily basis. His new mom is a community risk reduction officer with a local city and Riley will work along side her as a therapy dog for at-risk youth and individuals being released from prison. It's an ideal arrangement for Riley. His foster mom has offered to provider doggy daycare on the rare occassion the Riley can't go to work with his new mom. Riley's new mom is also adding 2' to the height of her fence to keep him safely contained and he has a new preschool-aged boy to watch over and hang out with.

Some dogs are easy placements and could settle in well with almost any home. Some dogs, like Riley, need a very special home with a very special owner who can meet their unique needs and love them because of or in spite of their faults. Congratulations, Riley, on finding your very special home!

Sophie is in a foster-with-intent home near the creek where she has a new mom, dad and 10 year old girl to hang out with.

Maggie, a senior black lab, has a new home at a farm in Wisconsin. What a lucky girl!

Sadie is still on the run, please keep an eye out for her if you are in the Longfellow area of Minneapolis.
