Meet Kelly!
Lab Mix
Approx. 3 years old

Kelly is an absolute love bug, who will steal your heart. She is a 3 year old lab mix. Right now she is 44 lbs, but needs to gain a little bit of weight. Kelly has never lived with a family or in a home before coming to us, but you would never know it with her personality. She loves to cuddle! She would spend all day either hugging (yes, she loves to give hugs) or just being by your side or resting her head on your lap.

She loves to give kisses and nothing makes her happier than being with people. In spite of her living in a shelter her entire life, she did amazingly well in our home. She immediately took to her crate and her blanket - it is her favorite place to hang out during quiet times. She is working on the potty training and she seems to be picking it up very quickly. As long as you let her out often, she knows what outside is for.

Kelly is very good on the leash, and enjoys short walks as long as it is still light out. Not living outside a shelter, all the changes are new to her and the dark seemed to confuse her. Kelly seems to love other dogs and has shown an interest in playing, without any aggression. Kelly's energy level has been growing a bit more everyday. She is finally enjoying playing fetch and loves to run around the yard, however she seems to enjoy nap time just as much.

Kelly has the potential to be very fast. Although she never seemed to want to get too far from us, a fenced yard would be recommend. Kelly is crate trained. Kelly needs a little bit of help with training and obedience, as she is very puppy like with her behavior, but she is so smart and eager to please that I know she would be the perfect dog with a little bit of training and a lot of love!

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…..
