Abbie and Jester

Abbie and Jester came in to Pet Haven this weekend from a small shelter in rural Iowa.

Abbie was surrendered to the shelter because she would not hunt. She's 15 months old and a small lab mix at about 40lbs. She is smart and sweet, the shelter volunteers just loved her. She kept her kennel clean at the shelter so they think she is probably housetrained. She's shy at first, but loves attention once she warms up to you. She is good with other dogs. Abby has gone to a foster home.

Jester is a sweet retriever mix. He has longer black hair. He's estimated to be 2 years old and weighs in at 58 lbs. He's working hard on housetraining and doing very well. The shelter reports that he loves attention and he loves other dogs. He was checked by our vet this weekend and was given a good bill of health other than a little ear infection. He's hanging out at one of our doggy daycare partners while he waits for a foster home. He's a young boy who is still impressionable and I am sure he will flourish in a loving foster home. Maybe that home is yours?
