Orson

Orson

Orson’s family adopted Appaloosa (now Bale) from Houndhaven last year, and after learning about Orson they felt he would be a great companion for Bale and the right fit for their family.  The two dogs got along wonderfully at the home visit.  Orson’s human family is made up of mom, dad, a 9 year old brother and 7 year old sister.  They’re an active family which is perfect for a young dog like...

Celia

Celia

Celia is happy to announce that she has found her forever home! Her mom and dad are very dog savvy, having raised and trained their yellow lab, so she won't be allowed to get away with murder, but she will have a wonderful life knowing that she doesn't have to be in charge of the household! She and Reya Sunshine (and she IS a ray of sunshine) have already learned to play tug, and Celia, who will...

Garner

Garner

Garner was a volunteer favorite because he walked pretty well on the leash and had nice manners. He loved everyone and everything and didn't hesitate to tell you so while at HH. Two of our volunteers who were looking to add to their already considerable pack thought he was the guy to blend in with the rest of their crew. They were absolutely right! Garner, now Henry, has a retired dad whose...

Juliet, who waited at Houndhaven 3 ½ months for a home—almost as long as Sugarcookie, is right now being pampered and spoiled and receiving lots of cuddles.  She has a mom, dad and a very cute kitty sister named Simon.  Juliet is now Josie as in Josie & the Pussycats.  There’s a big beautiful fenced backyard to explore.  Josie has turned out to be quite the chewer.  She destroyed 3 toys and...

Sugarcookie

Sugarcookie

Sugarcookie was our longest resident at Houndhaven, waiting 4+ months to be adopted, so this sweet baby has wasted no time in settling in at her new home and even surprised her mom & dad that she adjusted so quickly.  Since she waited that long to get a home, Sugarcookie decided she was going to enjoy every single day of her new life.  There are 24 miles of walking trails in the neighborhood...

Claire

Claire

Claire’s parents are former adopters as well as volunteers with us.  They lost their Houndhaven dog Tebow (f/k/a Dillinger) last year and recently fell in love with sweet Claire when they met her at the shelter.  Her new momma drove all the way from North Carolina (where she was helping their daughter with her move there) just so she could be at the home visit and welcome Claire.  Their most...

Emmie

Emmie

Emmie and her big brother (silver lab Blue) had the best, easy introduction at the home visit and got along great. Emmie has her own people, too—her parents and two teen sisters—and the family was ready to shower Emmie with love just as they've done with Blue. Emmie spent her first weekend getting to know everyone, having family playtime outside, and going for lots of walks with the girls. Both...

Claudia

Claudia

Claudia’s family is made up of four humans—momma, dad and 7 yr. old brother and sister. The kids have been asking a dog for a while but their parents wanted to make sure they were ready for the responsibility. Claudia had a good first day, taking lots of walks and meeting a few dogs on her street. She was a little cautious at first but quickly became buddies with them and started playing....

Doobie

Doobie

Doobie's new mom was sitting on the front porch waiting for us to arrive because she couldn't contain her excitement about his home visit! Doobie was pretty excited himself when he saw his big back yard with lots of shade and...lizards!!! He mastered the dog door like a pro and approved of his beds in the office and by the master bed. He also approved of the couch (which he will be allowed on...

Elly

Elly

We always feel bad when a little puppy comes to HH instead of going to a wonderful home. We love them and treat them as they should be treated, but it's not the same as a good home. Little Elly came to us at 11 weeks old, and it took about a month for her to get ready for a home. During that month, one of our former serial adopters (who recently lost HH alum Colin) organized a work day at HH...
