Bubba

Bubba

Meet Bubba. Bubba, being a lab, found himself what he considered a tasty treat. Unfortunately, it was a corn cob. What Bubba didn't know (or maybe forgot in the heat of passion) was that corn cobs don't come out as easily as they went in. We at Houndhaven learned that lesson from a yellow lab named Lex many years ago. Suffice it to say that Bubba's owners were faced with an expensive surgery to...

Rocket Man

Rocket Man

Rocket Man has blasted off to his new home in Ocala! His new mom and dad were looking for a dog who would coexist well with their cat who thinks he's a dog, and Rocket fit the bill. In fact, Rocket was a bit scared of the cat so we figured that was probably a good thing. His tail didn't stop wagging as he checked out the fenced yard and house, and he was already laying in the snuggly new bed...

Gunther hit the jackpot. Plain and simple. A couple who have had several labs found themselves labless after their last beloved boy passed. They saw Gunther's picture and then drove all the way from Jacksonville to meet him. It was love all 'round as his new mama gave him a massage and facetimed with her daughters so they could meet him too. We knew he would miss his foster family, especially...
