 Haven is a cute, loving, fun, playful young girl.  She is completely housebroken and crate trained although the foster does not feed her in it nor does she sleep in it overnight as Haven prefers to snuggle in her own’s bed.  Foster dad Rick says Haven is a smart, sweet little princess who is gentle and easily redirected if you want her to do something different.  Haven loves people and is mildly obsessed with her two foster siblings.  She needs daily walks to burn energy as she is a young, active, petite girl.  Haven will do best in a single story home because of her wonky foot and be a sweet addition to her forever family.


Personality: Haven is an 8 month old petite cream Golden Retriever. She could not be sweeter but has certainly had an interesting journey in her short life. Haven was purchased from a breeder and landed herself a loving home in an apartment complex which is where Haven fell down a flight of stairs. She had injuries to both back legs, her left hip and a broken jaw. Haven had surgery to repair a femur break and her hip on her left side. Her jaw healed on its own. Haven's back right leg fracture fused on its own and she needs no further treatment. However, the fused leg does not bend giving her a funny walk and a dragging foot. Haven wears a shoe on that foot when leaving the house so she is does not scrape on any pavement. This does not slow her down and she can be seen running around the backyard as fast as any dog.
With all that she has endured she is the cuddliest and happiest puppy. She loves to cuddle, gives kisses and chews on her toys. She is housebroken and loves frozen green beans. Haven was just spayed and is now ready for her forever home.

Ideal Home: To live her best life Haven needs to be with another playful dog and she would love to be around children. She ran into a group of girl scouts selling cookies and was all over them. The more attention she can get the better.
