Timber's Story...
This senior is in need of a loving home. He is approx 13 years and 8 lbs, although you would never know it. He acts like a much younger dog. He was abandoned at a high kill shelter by his owner who said they were moving and could not take him – we know, it is disgusting! We rescued his housemate Mary Jane, and could not leave him behind to die. He is just the sweetest little boy. He looks like a Havanese. We had our groomer clean him up as he was so matted. He does have cataracts in both eyes, but has some vision but gets around really well. He does want to be with you and would do better with someone who is home a lot that can give him lots of attention. He likes to be where ever you are. He would also do well with a buddy to keep him company. He does pretty well on a leash and seems to be pretty well house trained. He is the perfect lap dog.


The total adoption donation of $375 and includes the required interstate health certificate and transport , spay/neuter, shots including rabies, bordatella, parvo, lepto, distemper and canine influenza, and micro chip with a lifetime pre paid registration. The total amount is payable to Shaggy Dog Rescue which is a 501c3. Some of our dogs are still in Texas in foster care. The application is online at http://houstonshaggydogrescue.org/application-process/

Just as a note, if you are in Massachusetts and are adopting directly from Texas rather than from a local foster, there are new quarantine laws in effect. All rescues must be quarantined 48 hours at a state run facility, and in addition, a second interstate health certificate is required to be issued by a Massachusetts vet. This new law may add an additional cost.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Timber, a Woonsocket Havanese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Havanese for sale in Woonsocket, or seeking a Havanese dog from a breeder in Woonsocket.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Woonsocket already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Woonsocket breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Havanese breeders who help with Havanese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Woonsocket paves the way for another one to be saved.
