Foster needed for Paden

Paden is a sweet one year old black and tan girl who was surrendered to a shelter in rural Iowa. As is the case with many of our intakes ... your guess is as good as our's as far as the breed - besides, at Pet Haven we love the mutts! Our shelter partners in rural Iowa do not have access to adopters as we do in the Twin Cities so our intake coordinator works hard to help dogs who otherwise would spend days/weeks/months in a stressful shelter environment. Paden was an owner surrender. She is good with cats, other dogs and kids. Paden would like you to know: "My game of choice is tug of war. I am very smart. I am very loving and sweet and I am a very pretty girl."

Here is additional info we got on Paden from one of her advocates at the shelter:

"Paden was at our big Pets on Parade event yesterday. She was around hundreds of animals ... dogs, cats, chickens, birds, etc. She did great! A local trainer was handling her and said Paden is very smart and responsive. She taught Paden how to heel in one afternoon. She was so good with every person and animal she met yesterday!"

Paden will be arriving on transport this coming Saturday. She will be fostered at one of Pet Haven's doggie daycare partners until we are able to find her a foster home. We love all of our doggie daycare partners (Pampered Pooch Playground, Auntie Ruth, and Downtown Dogs Minneapolis) .... however in the best interest of the pups we want to move them out of doggie daycare into a loving foster home as soon as possible.

Please help us get the word out about Paden and if you would like to learn more about fostering with Pet Haven we hope you'll join us at our new volunteer orientation session this coming Saturday.
