Posted Breed: Black and Tan Coonhound / Doberman Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). May’s Woof-Facts Adores people and is amazing with children - great family girl Perfect balance of playfulness and cuddle-bug Practices ideal household etiquette Prefers to be the only pet in the home Some Things About May Hi y’all, my name is Mayberry – but they call me May for short. We think the nickname May is just darling, so we are sticking to it. I’m a 5-year-old, 60-lb hound mix, who has an irresistible smile. I’m as pretty and well-mannered as a debutante. And I love being around people and will be a great fit for a home that has children. I’m described as having the perfect energy level. With an equal admiration of playing and snuggling, I make sure that my day is balanced with them both. May’s Background So I’m FernDog’s exclusive Southern gal! I was rescued from a high-kill shelter in rural Georgia, where I was a volunteer favorite. I’m small town girl who was found as a stray, roaming those old country roads by my lonesome. When the shelter became full and my future was uncertain, FernDog gave me the gift of a new life -- bless their heart! It seems like I had a family of my own in my past, as I was spayed when I ended up at the shelter, but we’re not sure what happened. Great thing is, this made it very easy for me to adjust to my new FernDog foster family, and I’ve been winning everyone over in the Northeast with my Southern Hospitality ever since. Here’s What My Foster Family Says About Me I’ve truly bonded with my foster family. Adoringly, they say that sometimes I like to invade their personal space -- in a precious way, of course, which they truly enjoy. I LOVE all people! And I am AMAZING with children! When the kids are playing, running around and making noise (like kids do), it doesn’t bother me one bit – I just stay calm and simply CHERISH them. I walk nicely on a leash but can get a bit excited when I see another doggie. I do currently live with two dogs in my foster home, and I enjoy their companionship. In my forever home though, I’d prefer to be the only canine in the house (this way, you’ll only have one space invader (lick-lick). Having a fenced-in yard for fun and frolic would be just my icing on the cake. When I get super enthusiastic, I use all the will-power I have to keep all four of my paws on the ground, and I act like a perfect lady. And when I receive a compliment, I beam with a respectable pride! My foster mom thinks this Southern Charmer may have even taken ballet lessons while living down south because whenever she brings me my meals, I do these adorable 360-degree spins with incredible finesse (woof-woof). May’s Forever Family Are you ready to have this Southern Belle become part of your family? I promise to make your heart go pit-a-pat every day! Finding my forever home would make me so ecstatic, that I’d show you my ballet spins, keeping all four of my paws on the ground, while looking into your eyes and beaming with pride! Please contact FernDog if you’d like to see a preview of my performance!

We currently do not have detailed information for this breed. If you would like to provide such information, you can do it here:

Request to Add a New Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

Floyd’s Woof-Facts Male, mixed breed, 9 months young, 56 lbs Super social — comfortable around people, kids and other canines Crate trained and well behaved Calm demeanor (even in his puppy stage); a nice balance of playtime and cuddles Great family dog! Quick Introduction to Floyd Floyd here, and I’ll put it right out there — I’m pretty much perfect! Please don’t think I’m bragging… I’m simply repeating what my foster mom says about me. You see, I’m a blonde beauty, handsome as a rock star. I’m super-social and comfortable around all people (even when kids are running around, it doesn’t bother me one iota)… did I hear someone shout out, “Family Man in the house”?!? I like other doggies and currently live in a foster home with a furry canine friend. I’m well behaved – whether at home or when we go on excursions to the pet store, on walks, etc. And I’m even a bit goofy at times (like when I’m enthralled just to see a leaf blow right by me – simple pleasures I guess), so we can add sense of humor to my repertoire. We all know there’s no such thing as the perfect man, but I’m pretty darn close. With that said, if I’ve tickled your fancy, please fill out an adoption application with Rescue Haven Foundation and ask for the Blonde Beauty (blondes do have more fun you know – woof)!

      Breed: Boxer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Petunia’s Woof-Facts: Urgently in need of foster home Preferably adult-only home due to her high-energy level Recommend dog-savvy person to continue her training Female, mixed breed, two-three years old, 56 lbs Gets excited when meeting new people, responding to the notion that taking introductions slowly and politely reaps great rewards (including treats!) As her BFF, kisses and belly rubs are a must! And playtime with her toys! Crate-trained; thrives on having a routine; already knows some commands, and her yearn-to-learn attitude will assist in learning more Discovering how to strut her stuff on a leash with more finesse Quick Introduction to Petunia I’m Petunia – an exuberant flower girl who’s urgently searching for a foster home and also seeking a forever home. Deep inside, I’m addicted to love, but I get uneasy when I first meet new people and dogs. I’m just not the type of girl who’ll jump right into the arms of anyone. I need to take it slow, as I want to make sure these newbies are friendly before I pledge my love to them. I can get scared and bark at first, but we’ve found that when yummy treats are part of the program, it makes the getting-to-know-you process smoother. So please be patient with me, and after a while, I’ll flop right on my back, begging ever so sweetly for my favorite thing of all – BELLY RUBS! A close-and-running second to belly rubs are KISSES. Note: Kisses won’t happen as quickly, but don’t fret, once I’ve fallen for you, they are required (both giving and receiving) and will be part of the relationship. Abundance of energy, abundance of love, searching for my abundant life. Petunia’s Background I had a family once, and they gave me up – brought me to an inner-city shelter when they found out they were having a baby. I was scared and nervous during this transition, yet remained a sweet girl. I started to bloom again when a volunteer from Rescue Haven Foundation saw my photo and story, and I was brought under the wings of their organization. Living with Petunia The recommendation is for me to be in a foster and/or forever home with a dog-savvy person or with someone who is excited to work with one of Rescue Haven’s awesome trainers – this way, my learning can be continued. We feel I’d do well in home as the only dog. I’ll need regular exercise each day due to my high energy level so hopefully you’ll be up for that. Petunia’s Forever Home Have you heard the expression, “Work hard. Play hard.”? My twist on it is “Work hard. Play hard. Love hard.” And that’s pretty self-explanatory. My foster family will need to continue my training so I can bloom into the bestest Petunia in the garden — that’s our “work”. We’ll need daily “play” for exercise and stimulation. And for the greatest gift of all, “love” – ours will include belly rubs and kisses, for sure – I’ll just need you to be patient with me as I warm up to new things. If you want some flower power in your life, please fill out a foster application with Rescue Haven, and make a shout out that you “Pick Petunia!”

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Unknown breed (short coat). Kale’s Woof-Facts · Urgently seeking foster home but looking for a forever home too! · Male, mixed breed, 4.5 years old, 28 lbs. · Housebroken, healthy, up-to-date on vaccines, neutered · Bonds, snuggles, and greatly enjoys time with his caregivers · Looking for a dog lover who will help him to keep learning · Thrives in a home with another canine companion so that’s what’s needed; no cats please · Energetic, likes walks, a fenced-in yard would be a plus, but not required Quick Introduction to Kale Hi, I’m Kale. I love my caregivers and the doggie siblings I’ve lived with while in foster care. I’m an energetic boy, so I like to go on walks and run around during playtime in the backyard. Yet, one of my most favorite things is to snuggle next to my foster dad while he’s immersed in a good book. I am a quick learner and have excelled at basic commands -- like sit, touch, and down. With more training, I’ll get more commands down pat. I admit, I had a rough start in life so sometimes I can get a little nervous, but I keep my head high and continue to move onward and upward. I’m doing pretty darn good, if I say so myself (my caregivers will agree)! I’m in search of that special someone who will guide me and help me learn even more about this amazing thing called life. I promise to be your faithful companion, all along the way, as we move ahead on this precious journey together. Kale’s Background I was rescued from a NJ hoarding case but have had the opportunity to experience normal living situations since that time. I get along well with most other dogs (male and female), and I am loyal and bond with my human caregivers. Through no fault of my own, I just lost the foster home I had been living in for the last year. I am in a temporary foster situation now, but I urgently need a regular foster home. Living with Kale I love my foster parents, and I feel so good when I’m near them. I give them my affection with cuddles and kisses. I’ve also had a few canine foster siblings, and I’ve been so happy to have their constant companionship. I learn from them, and they seem to give me the additional confidence I need and that feeling of being “safe”, as I adjust to my new life. Given this, we feel a home where I have at least one doggie sibling is necessary for me… this way I’ll have a canine buddy who can help show me the way. Bragging rights! I learn commands quickly. I’m housebroken. I’ll do pretty much anything for a yummy treat. My walking-on-a-leash skills are good. I love to run and play. My little, and completely adorable, curly tail wags more often each day as I move ahead with my progress. And a big accomplishment I’d like to tell you about -- I’m getting much better at being in my crate! I’m looking for someone who wants to help a dog who’s lacking confidence to gain it – a person sincere about continuing my training so I can progress even further – it will be a win-win for us all! Another win-win is that Rescue Haven Foundation’s training support is available by phone or face-to-face (depending on the adopter or foster’s location) by our certified volunteer dog trainers so you’ll also have someone to lean on if need be. Since it takes me some time to get comfy with new people, I would do best in a home without children. Understandably, kids like to be active and have friends over, and that just may be a bit too much for me right now. I’ve met respectful kids and have hung out with a few of them, but right now I need time to transition to a home and get to know my new family first. Kale’s Medical Needs I’m neutered, up to date on vaccines and have received a clean bill of health from Rescue Haven Foundation’s vet. I’m currently taking anti-anxiety medication to help me assimilate into my new life. We find this also assists me with my progress in training and has been a helpful tool. It may be a temporary need until I adjust more fully into my new routine. Kale’s Forever Home Do you think I can be your little sidekick? May I snuggle right near you as you immerse yourself in a fantastic book or your favorite Netflix series? I’m an incredibly deserving dog who needs someone who will both encourage and enjoy watching me learn and flourish. Are you and your current canine my “special someones” who will guide me through my journey – as it becomes our journey? If you feel in your heart that we’re the right fit, please fill out a foster or adoption application with Rescue Haven Foundation. I vow to be a dedicated and faithful partner to both you and your doggie, and I look forward to all the love we can share with each other.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Unknown breed (medium coat). Baby Boy’s Woof-Facts Male, staffy-blend, approximately 4-5 years old, ~ 50 lbs Absolutely loves little dogs; gets along well with cats too! Likes larger friendly, playful dogs! Crate-trained and house-broken (SEE VIDEO!) Super smart — listens well, knows some commands, loves learning Super affectionate – enjoys both giving and receiving Loves activity like walking, running, and playing Quick Introduction to Our Baby Boy Hi, my name is “Baby Boy”, and even though that name may have a common feel to it, I’ll tell you this — I’m not at all a commoner – I’m one exceptional dog! And I’m not a baby either — I’m actually about 4 ½-year- old, well-behaved boy on the path of learning how to be a perfect gentlemen. (PS: I actually got my name because my rescuer felt I was as sweet as a baby.) I’ll let you know that I had a really rough past, and now, thanks to a Good Samaritan who literally saved me from a terrible situation, I’m starting my life all over again. So this is my official birth announcement, as I feel I’ve been born again. And even though I’m actually not a baby, I’m excitingly learning what the good life has to offer me, and I feel like I’ve been born again — being loved and cared for; going on walks, runs, and to the park; and SQUEAKY TOYS, OH BOY, WHAT A JOY! I have so much love to give, and I’m looking for my forever mamma or dadda (or both) to help me adjust to my newfound life, provide me with the love and care I absolutely deserve, and for us to have the opportunity to become completely goo-goo-ga-ga over each other, forever and ever! This Baby Boy is here to tell you my story. But first, make sure to watch my most precious video – it’s me and my Chihuahua foster sibling, already goo-goo-ga-ga over each other – I’m sure it will make you coo just like a happy baby! Baby Boy’s Background I’m so thankful that a Good Samaritan happened to cross my path while she travelled through the big inner-city where I resided prior. She saw that my living situation was tragic, and she didn’t turn a blind eye. She took action and got me out of harm’s way so this braveheart could experience a future filled with only happiness. You see, I lived my life chained up outside. I was only 24 pounds upon my rescue –only a skeleton of where I should be – and one of my paw pads was missing. Please know that, although I’ve come from a difficult background, to say the least, I’ve actually come around really well in only a short period of time, and it’s only getting better. Welcome to my rebirth, the start of my journey to a lifetime of joy! Baby Boy’s Typical Day in His New Temporary Home I’m currently living with the Good Samaritan who saved me – I call her my Rescue Mamma! She has a couple of jobs and works different shifts, and I’ve adjusted to her schedule real quickly. When she’s home, I have free roam of the house, along with the other small doggies that I currently live with. I love those little critters, and I’m told I’m very tender and caring with them SEE VIDEO! When Rescue Mamma is at work, I stay in my crate like a really good boy – I like my crate and go right in it when she tells me to. I’m eating well and have gained the weight I’ve needed (I’m now up to 50 lbs – YAY). When we are home, we all hang out on the couch, play, and give and receive our combined lovin’. We also go on walks and to the park – I really enjoy experiencing these things, and getting regular exercise is great for me as I like the activity. I’m so happy to be learning all about what life actually feels like being with amazing people and affectionate furry friends in a wonderful home-life situation. Baby Boy’s Medical I’m neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and have received treatment for my injured paw. It felt so good to finally receive proper medical care. My pediatrician (oh, I mean my veterinarian – hee-hee) told me that I was very friendly and such a good boy while he was caring for me. I’m all healed up and ready-to-go to my forever home. Oh, I’m missing my two front teeth, but that doesn’t trouble me in the least. They weren’t my baby teeth, they were my big-boy teeth – but I still eat my food plenty okie dokie without them! Living with Baby Boy As mentioned previously, I love small dogs, and I get along well with cats. I’m good with dogs my size if they are really friendly and kind to me. My Rescue Mamma says that I am way too nervous around children and says I am best with older teenagers and adults. Baby Boy’s Forever Home As you’ve read, I have so much love to give, and I’m ready to look for my forever parent(s) who will love and care for me all around… continue to teach me things, take me on walks and hikes, engage in playtime together, and help me adjust to my rebirth into this miraculous new life! If you become my lucky parent(s), Rescue Haven’s volunteers will make an announcement kind of like this: “Congratulations on your new Baby Boy!” And instead of handing out baby rattles and cigars, we can give out Kong’s and yummy doggie treats in celebration of “ME”, your bundle of joy. And I promise, you won’t have to do that baby-talk thing with me… (but, if you insist, I really won’t mind, goo-goo-ga-ga, such a good boy)! Please fill out an application with Rescue Haven, and make sure you put my name, Baby Boy, on the birth certificate (woof)!

      Posted Breed: Unknown breed (short coat). Read Anna’s story here https://www.youcaring.com/rescuehavenfoundation-1106247 and think about opening your home to foster! Anna is 43lbs and 2 years old. She seems good with dogs and children, however, once she heals from her surgery performed on 2-22-18, we will do a full evaluation. She has been nothing but sweet with all the staff at the hospital! Amazing Anna came to Rescue Haven on February 20th, 2018 after her leg was shattered when somebody accidentally slammed a door on it. Her owners brought her to the emergency hospital however, the cost to repair her leg was way more than they could afford so they took her back home with some pain meds but Anna continued to suffer. When we got the call asking if we could help her somehow, we immediately reached out to the owners. They admitted to not being able to afford not only the repair of this injury but basic lifetime vet care for her. We offered to take her under RHF but that took days for them to agree. We anxiously awaited for the call because we could not walk away without intervening despite never meeting her or knowing much about her personality. But yesterday we got the call that they were ready to surrender her to us so we immediately got in the car, picked her up and brought her right to our partners at Verona Animal Hospital where she was immediately examined and x-rayed (see the smile on her face on the x-ray table!). Despite Anna not knowing us, being in pain and in a strange new place, she was a perfect lady and never once made a peep! She is a real sweetheart! The x-rays were reviewed and then sent to the orthopedist, Dr. Thatcher, who called us instantly stating that the surgery needed to be done ASAP. The X-ray revealed a fracture of her tibia and fibula of her back left leg and there are shattered pieces of bone scattered in the fracture site. The extensive surgery will require a stainless steel plate and screws with additional wiring in order to hold the bones together. So we scheduled her surgery for tomorrow February 22nd, because we did not want her to be in pain any longer. So we desperately need help to raise funds for this much-needed intensive surgery. She will need strict crate rest for several weeks afterwards and will need weekly check ups at the vet hospital. Despite the cost we are committed to helping her get the best care possible and give her the life that she deserves! Won’t you help us help amazing Anna?

      Posted Breed: Unknown breed (short coat). Spring’s Woof-Facts Female, mixed breed, 8 years old, 55 lbs Triple-A-Amazing: Affectionate, Athletic, Academic Buddha-belly rubs a MUST! Well-behaved, housebroken, knows many commands; prefers having free roam of designated area of house but can stay in her crate if needed Does well with other dogs of comparable size with slow introductions; no cats or small animals A home with teenagers is recommended as fast movements of younger kids can cause her to be confused and bark a bit Quick Introduction to Spring Spring is always in the air when I’m by your side, and that’s because my name is actually Spring! I’m a really good girl, and when I say that, it’s not just smoke and mirrors — I’ve been the recipient of a Good Citizens Certificate. But don’t fret, I’m not just a boring goody-two-shoes. I have a spunky and goofy side too. You know that song, “Sunshine in my eyes, makes me happy” – well those lyrics really speak to me. Sometimes, when my foster family is cleaning the house, they’ll peak around to see what I’m doing, and they’ll find me in my bed, in the upside-down position on my back, basking in the sun – feels so radiant! At night, when my foster family is relaxing on the couch, I make it a point to flop myself on my back and then rest my head right on their legs – my sign for “belly rubs please!” Oh, and I guess you can tell that I’m somewhat or a back-sleeper! So please read on to learn more about my sunny-side-up-self. Spring’s Background I lived in a home with my incredibly loving human mommy and my canine boyfriend for several years – she had rescued me from a shelter, and I was living the good life! Then my world was completely turned upside down when my mom suddenly passed away and I lost my canine pal too. At first, I didn’t understand what was really happening. My mom’s family helped me through a transition process, and little by little they explained everything to me. I stayed in our home, and one family member would visit me every day to take care of me, while simultaneously trying to find me a new forever family. After months of waiting, there was no sign of a new family for me (terribly sad!). Rescue Haven stepped right in, and a miracle happened – they had a foster family who was willing to move into my house in order to care for me. And they promised to find me a forever home. My deceased mom’s prayers were answered when this happened, I know that for sure! Spring’s Typical Day in Foster Home I guess you can say I’m a morning person – I wake up raring to go! The first thing I do is give my foster family a big smile – in doggie language, that’s my way of communicating a delightful “GOOD MORNING!” Next, I eat my breakfast with gusto, and then it’s time for our morning walk — I truly enjoy getting fresh air on our walks and exploring the world around me. When we return, I lounge around while my foster family gets ready for work and school. I know my beloved mom who crossed over the rainbow bridge is looking down on me with relief and pure joy that I am living a wonderful life together with my foster parents. After a long day of work and school, I greet my foster family at the door upon their return with a tail wagging with glee. Once they settle in, I shower them with lots of hugs and kisses before venturing out for our second walk of the day – I love our walks! When we return and after I eat my dinner, I sit with my human foster brother while his mom and I help him with his homework. I’ve gotten straight A’s for knowing my commands, so why not try to help my li’l bro with his homework — makes perfect sense to me! Then one more walk of the day before night-time cuddles and nighty-night. I have to say that by living with my foster family after several months of uncertainty, I can now rest my head peacefully. Living with Spring I live with my foster mom and dad, and a super-cool 5-year-old human foster brother. Through the process of slow introductions, it seems I’d do well in a home with another dog about my size or larger, who is well socialized. The fast movement of little kids can confuse me and cause me to bark a bit so it’s best to not go in that direction. However, we feel I’d thrive in a home with teenagers, so that could be an awesome experience for all of us! I do have this thing for chasing squirrels and small animals, so a home with no cats or small animals is the way to go. Spring’s Medical I’m one of the spunkiest 8-year-old doggies you’ll meet, and my health is tip-top! I’m accustomed to a K/O diet, eating the yummy Zignature Kangaroo brand. Spring’s Forever Home Spring is always in the air when you’re with me! I’ll bring all kinds of warmth to your life with my sunny-side-up personality! My morning-person gusto will kick-off each day with pure joy. I love to walk, love to play, love to learn and love to love. Sounds like the perfect combination! Will you be the one to make my dreams (and my deceased mom’s) come true by giving me a forever home? I sure hope so! If you feel we’re the perfect combination, love plus me and you, please fill out an adoption application with Rescue Haven Foundation.

I’m super-small in size and extra-large in sweetness. The first thing I ask of you is to read my story from start to finish – promise you won’t stop in between or even at the next sentence. You see, I’m blind, and you may not have any experience in having a blind dog. It’s amazing what blind dogs are capable of… it may be beyond your comprehension right now, but it’s not beyond mine, because I am living proof! In humans, vision is their most well-developed sense, but in dogs, smell is the primary sense. I can assure you that my smelling capabilities are at the top of the charts (especially when my kibble or treats are on the agenda!). Yes, there are precautions, commands, and adaptations that need to be made when you have a blind dog. And once you understand what they are, we get into our groove, and I learn the navigation of the house (my safe place) and our routine, there may be some moments I’m getting around so well that you actually forget I’m blind. With the set-up I’m provided in my foster home, I navigate very well, and they continue to teach me commands to help me navigate even better. When none of the humans are home, I stay in a large pen or have free roam of a gated area with my doggie companions. Sometimes I hang out with the other doggies; other times I do my own thing, like nap in my bed with a cuddly blanket. When my humans are home, I love being near them — whether it’s staying close by while they’re doing household things or lounging on the couch while they watch TV (and I make sure to listen, so I know what’s happening on our favorite shows). Besides my lack of vision, I’m a low-maintenance guy. I promise to love my forever person with all of my heart, and I’m looking for that special someone to be completely open to my embrace. “Better to be blind and see with your heart, than to have two good eyes and see nothing.” Milton’s Background I sadly ended up at an inner-city shelter and was at risk of being euthanized. One of Rescue Haven’s volunteers heard about my urgent situation and brought me to safety – right into the arms, heart and home of their rescue group. I’m completely grateful and beyond happy to feel safe and loved by this wonderful group of people. I was underweight when I was first rescued, but with my good appetite, I’m eating well, and all 7 pounds of me have filled out nicely (wink)! Milton’s Typical Day in Foster Home Did you ever hear the expression, “it’s raining cats and dogs”? Well in my foster home, it’s definitely raining dogs! There are three dogs who live there permanently, there are three other dogs (fosters like me) who live there temporarily, and there are two human parents. Now that I think about it, it’s kind of like a 2017 animal-friendly version of the Brady Bunch (groovy)! All of us wake up before sunrise to start our day. We’re taken outside to do potty, and when back inside, we sit down as a family to eat breakfast (giggle)! Actually, we each have our own eating spots… mine is in a large pen which gives me my own safe space to consume my food and nutrients (breakfast of champions). I continue to hang out in my pen while my foster mom gets ready for work. After she leaves, my foster dad, who works from home (A.K.A., he’s home all day), brings me into his studio, and I keep him company. We go out for walks to explore the neighborhood and get some exercise, and before you know it, it’s time to eat dinner and for my foster mom to come home. We go for one more walk at night before it’s time to lounge on the couch with my humans and canine companions. When bedtime comes upon us, I have my own cozy bed in my foster parent’s room. Their bedroom is on the second floor so they make sure to have a gate at the top of the stairs so I’m safe and sound while we get a good night’s rest. I typically sleep like an angel, and if I need them for some reason, they know I’ll give a little bark as my sign (woof). Living with Milton As mentioned above, I live with other dogs, and I get along well with them. I’m just not very interactive with other canines, but it’s nice to know they’re around. I enjoy doing my own thing – like napping on my bed with my blankie. A quiet home would be best as I can start to bark a bit if there is a lot of stimulus around me. We feel I’d do fine either being the only dog in the house or having other small doggie companions (I’d definitely smell them and most likely follow them around with my nose). I’ll need someone who will care for me regarding my blindness. You can check out this website which provides useful information regarding blind dogs. It’s one of those things that you don’t really think about until it’s right under your nose (an appropriate metaphor), but you’ll see that doing specific things can help a dog like me easily became part of your forever family http://www.blinddogs.net/tips_help.html Milton’s Medical Some people may call me “special needs” — we just think I’m “special”! I’m 13 years old and have hypothyroidism which is being regulated through medication. I get eye drops 2 times a day, and when it comes to taking my medication, it’s easy-peasy for both me and my human (good boy)! “Kindness is a language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” Milton’s Ideal Forever Home Is your heart full of kindness for a doggie like me? I’ll be able to feel your kindness every moment of every day from deep within my soul. And I will give you all of my heart. All I want is a human who will love me, protect me, and care for me… so I can live the rest of my life safely, in my own little world, with you by my side.
