Lab Mix

Approx. 60 lbs.

If you're looking for a super sweet boy, we have one for you❤ Mugsy is a well-behaved, potty trained lab mix who is about 8-9 years old. He's always ready for walking around the block or snuggling up next to you. He is super relaxed and gets along well with other dogs and cats. He would do well with kids that are a bit older. He has few teeth, but that doesn't stop him from eating regular dog food moistened with a little canned food with gravy. He loves his treats and will sit, stay and has lots of potential to learn much more with a little love and time. He sleeps in his own bed at night and has had no accidents. He's neutered and up to date on everything. He underwent heartworm treatment and is doing great❤ Mugsy will surely steal your heart.

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. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family.

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…..
