I'd like you to meet Willow. She is a four year old pitty-lab mix. She knows all her basic commands, and responds even faster when treats are involved :-). Is completely house broken with no accidents while in foster care with us. We are teaching her to play Fetch and she is doing great and loves playing. She sleeps in her crate at night well. She LOVE, LOVE, LOVES being with her people. (ie. when I shower she is patiently waiting outside the shower on the bath mat). Likes to be part of whatever you are doing. When we are reading or watching TV she loves to sit right at your feet. We have a hobby farm with 4 cats, and many chickens with 3 of them sharing space with Willow in the backyard. So far we have seen no aggressive behavior towards any of them.

Here is Willow's story. She was with her original owner from the time she was a puppy until July of this year. Due to circumstances beyond his control he had to relocate and could no longer keep Willow. They were both broken-hearted. Willow was then placed with another family consisting of a Mom with health issues and her 11 year old daughter in an apartment. The Mom soon realized that Willow was too large for her in her poor health and she was unable to walk or exercise Willow. However, Willow lived with another dog during this time, a Chi-weenie, and the woman stated that she got along very well with her. Willow was then entrusted to Hope's Haven.

Any person or family will be very fortunate to have Willow as part of their lives. She is so passionate, sweet and loving and would be a great companion dog for anyone lucky enough to have her.

About Hopes Haven

About Our Rescue Group...

Hopes Haven began as a dream. A televised news story about a case of obscene animal abuse broke our hearts. Video from the scene taken after authorities seized possession of the animals revealed several deceased and emaciated dogs. Of the dogs still alive, only two were determined to have any chance of survival. Marsha called the humane society where the dogs had been taken and asked if a terribly emaciated Doberman that was on the newscast could be held for her to adopt if she survived. The care givers at the shelter named the Doberman Hope. Hope's life had been one of being chained inside of a barn and forced to have litter after litter of puppies, all while rarely seeing the light of day. Although Hope never did fully recover, she did indeed survive and lived with us for almost thirteen months before she died. Hopes Haven is a tribute to her and to all innocent dogs that have had their trust betrayed by unworthy guardians.

We give hope to those that have no place else to go. The old, infirm, and ill will always have a place to go as long as Hopes Haven exists.

We also specialize in northern breed rescue such as Huskies and Malamutes.
