This week we go to The Animal Haven where we feature Taz!! Taz is a six year old boxer pit mix who was saved from a high kill shelter. He loves to take walks, hikes and loves to swim. He will win you over with his amazing big eyes as he sits calmly in his kennel waiting for the perfect home. He would be great in a house with no cats. He is selective with other dogs and would be good with older children because he sometimes gets overly excited with his toys and needs minor training with his obsession with tennis balls. He walks well with a leash and deserves a family of his own. He has been at the shelter for long enough and would be such a great companion. If you are interested in adopting Taz please visit www.theanimalhaven.com or e-mail: theanimalhavenstaff@gmail.com


Episode 186
This week we go to Dog Star Rescue where we feature Cesera. Cesara is an approximately 47 lbs, adult, possible Chocolate Lab/Terrier Mix- but truly an adorable Heinz-57- a little bit of everything mixed breed . Her coat is a beautiful red and white, with the most adorable little white paws that look like mittens. Cesara is truly as sweet as they come. She is an exceptional girl who just loves to be hugged and cuddled, and she has so much love to give in return!
She is a fantastic dog with a wonderful personality- she is very happy and confident, and she has a medium to high energy level. If you are looking for a running partner, Cesara is your girl! She is the type of pup who loves plenty of activity, and loves to have fun. Although she is an adult, her personality and energy level tends to resemble that of a puppy at times. Plenty of playtime would make this girl especially happy! Cesara is selective and particular when it comes to her doggie friends, but would much rather be your one and only furbaby. While in foster care, she lived around older children and did very well with them however she is not good with cats.  Cesara is crate trained and house trained, though it is important to understand that sometimes dogs regress with house training as they adjust to a new home. She is super easy to train and already understands the cues of  “sit " and "stay”.  Cesara walks beautifully on a leash- she loves to trot and prance and she takes in the world around her.  Cesara is the type of girl that once you spend time with her, you just can’t help but to fall in love with her. And it becomes very clear that she has such an appreciation for a better life and for the humans who care for her. For more information on Cesera go to www.dogstarrescue.org or e-mail contactus@dogstarrescue.org.

This week we go to Dog Star Rescue where we feature Rod Stewart!

No autographs, please! It's hard being a rock star, but Rod Stewart makes it look effortless (and without that rock star attitude!). He is an adult brown Cocker Spaniel weighing around 35 lbs. He is a super friendly, sweet, lovable guy who needs nothing more than a loving forever family to spend the rest of his days with. Sure his rocker fur could use a little coiffing, but one trip to the groomer and this guy will be stage ready once again. Rod Stewart is just about house trained and crate trained but keep in mind that any dog may have an accident or two as they settle into their new homes. He walks well on a leash so feel free to take him on a world tour...or maybe just a neighborhood tour. We are unsure how Rod Stewart would do in a home with cats, children or other dogs as we have not had the opportunity to see him interact with them. This sweet boy deserves a lifetime of love and snuggles, are you the forever family that could give him just that? Are you ready to become this rock stars #1 fan? Interested in adopting Rod Stewart? To get the ball rolling head over to www.dogstarrescue.org and submit your application today. A Dog Star representative will contact you within 24 hours.

Though, she definitely needs some work to help her stop continuously hoover-vacuuming the floor for scraps. Like any good beagle, her nose sometimes gets her, and her waistline, in trouble! Sadie has been great with other dogs once she has a moment to meet them, and she is clicker trained for tricks! A very food motivated lady.
