Meet Boots!
Shepherd/Spitz/Husky??? Mix
Approx. 2-3 yrs old

Boots is a very smart but timid boy. He loves to play and likes toys, balls, chewy treats, and bones. He also loves blueberries and chicken! Boots also loves the chance to run around at the dog park!

Boots other favorite past time is cuddling up on a doggie bed or making a nest out of some blankets. He loves to cuddle with his human. Boots likes to go for walks and is working on not pulling as much. He will continue to need some help with training in his new family.

He's good with other dogs and lives with several in his foster home. He prefers female dogs. Boots appreciates his pack at his fosters home and would do best in a home with another dog. Boots is housebroken and will let you know when he needs to go outside.

When Boots first arrived, he was cautious of new things, but his foster family has helped to show him that there is nothing to be worried about! He is still timid when he meets new people but will warm up, given some patience and time. Boots is a laid back boy who just wants to find a family who will love him!

Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help.

About Safe Haven Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small 501 C3 nonprofit rescue located in Elburn, Illinois. In 2014, Safe Haven Dog Rescue became its own non-profit. We are licensed by the Illinois Agriculture Department.
The majority of our dogs and puppies are pulled from Kill Pounds and Shelters in KY, TN, AL and Illinois. When a foster home is available we will also accept owner relinquishment’s due to illness or foreclosure. We work hard to find local rescue groups within these states to pull the dogs into their program while we coordinate transportation and placement into foster homes.
Please take a few moments to read the stories about the dogs and puppies we have available for adoption. We disclose everything we know about the dogs, sometimes we know a lot often we know only that they were strays, thrown away on the side of the road, in the woods, or found in abandoned houses. While we don’t always know their past we are certain that their future is much brighter.
We hope that you and your family are part of the future…..
