- On sidewalks, areas where dogs may approach us rapidly -without warning- I use his 6 foot lead. When we are in the parks/open areas, I use the retractable. He gets such a smile on his face when he can do a slow run around on the leash, go play in the weeds, etc..
- We worked on his sit/come/down. Come is getting better every time. Every time he runs to me he now knows to sit and then gets bit of treat. We also worked on "around" for when he wraps himself around a tree :) He get the hang of this after 1 time.
- I brought a tennis ball with and he played with it quite a bit. I kept it as a novelty, we played for a minute and then I put it back in my pocket and brought it out later. He loves it if you kick it around like a soccer ball and then he runs around with it and if you ask him to bring it back to you, he does.

Enya likes to try and herd cats and bark at them, so a home without cats (or at least cats who are content standing in for sheep?) is required. She generally gets along with other dogs, but didn't get along well with 2 Shih Tzus in a previous foster home (they do kind of look like little fluffy sheep, don't you think?).
Enya is a pretty laid back girl who should be an easy foster. If you are interested, please email email@example.com

He loves the drive through bank - they give him treats; going to thevet - they give him treats; obedience class - he gets treats; playing catch and guarding our yard from squirrels.
He has been such a well behaved boy and we love him to pieces. Thankyou and Pet Haven so much!

Lulu came to stay with me and my family while she is waiting for her forever home. In the small period of time I have seen her interact with my 11 yr old daughter, our 3 yr old yorkie and 4 year old cat and all have been a very positive experience. She has a fun loving personality; loves to snuggle up on the couch with you; barely barks, is playful when encouraged and she has not had any accidents while staying with us. She needs a little help when walking on the leash and learning new tricks but is very smart and will catch on quick. Overall, she is a sweet dog and think she would be a great catch for any family.
If Lulu sounds like the dog for you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Lilah is well socialized and is happy to go along on any and all adventures. She's attended a rock concert, a baseball game and a 16 year old's birthday party while in Pet Haven care. She does well with kids and other dogs.
The only thing Lilah is still working on sorting out is her housetraining. As long as she is kept on a regular schedule and is given ample time outside to take care of business she is great! Lilah's been bounced around a lot in the past few months and needs a family that will commit to a few weeks of a strict housetraining schedule to get her on track.
Lilah would love to come and hang out with you. If you are interested in fostering or adopting this sweet girl, please email email@example.com

From Cookie's mom:
Hey there! Happy 4th. just want to show you how handsome our babydog who's almost 1 year old already is. we went on a trip to Madeline Island so this pic is by Lake Superior. he got a lot of play time with his cousin dogs who are a chihuahua and a corgi so he seems like a horse compared to them. he's about 45 lbs now. :)

Clyde is a 4 year old Tree Walking Coonhound. He was adopted out and returned because the dogs in his adoptive home did not like him. He previously lived with other dogs in his foster home and got along well with them and is a total charmer at our adoption events. Clyde is a quiet guy for a Coonhound. He also has no idea he is not a lap dog and loves to cuddle.
Meko is a 1 year old male lab/pointer mix. He does well with other dogs and is a little shy at first, but warms up quickly. One of our volunteers has spent some time visiting with him and he is a good walking partner. He is also a favorite with the staff at the doggy daycare facility where he has been hanging his leash.
Jester is an 18 month old male long-haired black lab mix. He's got some energy and would love to accompany his new foster on daily walks or jogs. He is learning quickly how to walk nicely with a gentle leader or harness. He also loves to play fetch so burning off some energy in the backyard is also an option. He is a good boy. He is a leaner and loves attention. He can be a little bossy with other dogs so would do best with an experienced dog owner for a foster.
Winky (no photo available) is a 4 year old Japanese Chin mix. She is shy and needs a patient foster who will help build her confidence. Children make her nervous so she needs a kid-free foster home.
Harold is an older lab mix. He does well with cats and other dogs that respect his personal space. He would do well in a home with other laid back dogs and would not do well in a home with a rambunctious in-your-face canine. He has good house manners and loves to snuggle with his people. He is crate trained and housetrained.

Louie loves to play with other dogs of all sizes and does well at the dog park. He is housebroken and is used to free roam of a room when his foster mom is gone. He does whine when she leaves, but settles down quickly (she has spied on him and checked with the neighbors as well). He doesn't chew anything in appropriate. Louie loves to ride int he car. Daily exercise is a must, but he also likes to settle down and snuggle in to watch TV at night. He knows basic commands: sit, come, stay, shake, roll over and stay. Louie does give indications that he would chase motorcycles if he could, so a fenced yard would be ideal for this pooch; however he currently lives in a townhome and does just fine on a tie out.
