NOTES FROM SAFE HAVEN ABOUT THIS DOG:
Listed at the shelter as a Welsh Terrier, but I think he looks more like a Lhasa Apso mix. Also listed as tri-colored, but I only see Tan and white. I had to ask them if the right profile was connected to this dog because it seems like they are describing a completely different dog...


NOTES FROM THE SHELTER ABOUT THIS DOG:
Welsh Terrier; Tricolor; Neutered; 7 YRS 35.20 LBS I came to the shelter as an owner surrender. Surrender reason: OWNER HLTH
BEHAVIOR EVALUATION: Dexter did allow handling when he was first admitted to the shelter, and tolerated medical procedures. When he went up for adoption and was out walking with a volunteer, he approached a staff member with soft body and wagging tail. When she knelt down and offered her hand to sniff, he stiffened, growled and bit her hand but did not break skin. When he was evaluated, he was up front in the kennel with soft relaxed body, leashed at the door and walked out with handler. When handler would initiate petting, did tolerate but he would still, lip lick and monitor, and became loose and wiggly when the handler's hand was withdrawn. He was tested with a dog, and he approached with loose body and wagging tail, ears up and to the sides, greeted the dog softly and disengaged. With his fear of unfamiliar people, he is having a hard time in the shelter. Because Dexter has had consistency in his life before coming to the shelter, he will likely improve dramatically in a home environment.
MEDICAL: Dexter had a dental while in our care; otherwise no significant findings.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Dexter was surrendered to the shelter when his owner had health problems and could no longer take care of him. His owner was elderly and had Dexter since he was a puppy. Dexter lived with no other people or animals besides his owner. On his profile, his owner marked that Dexter is fearful of unfamiliar people and will show teeth and growl.
DEXTER WILL NEED TO FIND RESCUE PLACEMENT BY 5PM ON 7/11/2017

HOW SAFE HAVENS E-LIST ADOPTION PROGRAM WORKS:
- This pet has NOT been saved & is in danger of being euthanized at the shelter on the deadline posted.
- The shelter will not allow me to have potential adopters come down & view the pets. This pet is in an area only accessible to rescue groups.
- You must be 100% SURE you want to adopt this pet & commit to adopting without meeting them first (I know, scary, but keep reading it gets better...).
- Fill out an application & be screened before the deadline so I can let the shelter know we have a home for this pet. For a dog: http://www.adoptapet.com/Safe-Haven/adoption-application/
- Once you get an approval e-mail, rest easy & follow the instructions.
- I will then pull the pet off the list, if your pet is marked as "spayed" or "neutered" in the shelter notes, plan to get your new family member either that day or the next day. Pick-up times are 9-5 every day of the week
- If your pet is marked as "male" or "female" in the shelter notes, then that means that they need to be fixed. So plan to get your new family member within 1-5 days. I will keep you updated & notify you when they are out of surgery, etc...
- After adoption, I will be available for help with training if you need it
- You can return the pet to Safe Haven if for some reason it is not working out. All I ask is that you give it a good 30 days before making that decision. (so see, it is not as scary as it sounds) This is the same way we do things with people who have fostered for us, only this is for people who are looking to adopt)

* Please note: Most pets that come from the big shelters get upper respiratory infections there. It is very common & is NOT serious. It is a virus that just needs to run it's course. Equivalent to you or I having a common cold. It is advised that you keep them separate from your other animals for the first week.

It is also STRONGLY ADVISED that you crate your new pet if they are fearful , need to recuperate from surgery, need potty training, or are being introduced to other pets. A crate is a great tool in helping them & keeping them safe. I strongly believe in using crates as a training tool much the same as using a crib for a baby.

Thank you for taking part in saving this pet from the cruelty in this world!


FAQ:
Q: Is this pet still available?
A: Updtes are posted in the original post on the FB page for Safe Haven Animal of AZ at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1405138936478168/ It will say the status of the pet in ALL CAPS at the very top of each pets post, and updates are posted in the comment section of each pets post.

Q: I don't see a phone #. Will someone please call me?
A: Everything needed is online. I have found that online is the most efficient way to get all the work done. In the past, when I posted my #, my phone rang off the hook all day. So I spent the whole day on the phone, with not much work to show for it at the end of the day. Again, everything needed is online.

Q: Can I visit with this pet before adopting?
A: Not through the E-list Adoption Program. Please read through the details above under "HOW SAFE HAVENS E-LIST ADOPTION PROGRAM WORKS".
However, we also do regular adoptions where you can meet the pet first. Pets up for regular adoption have a more detailed profile & can be seen on our Facebook page, or here: http://www.AdoptaPet.com/shelter81523-pets.html then click on the picture of the pet you are interested in to read about them.


Q: Is this pet good with other animals?
A: If it is, it is posted in the section "NOTES FROM THE SHELTER ABOUT THIS PET". If it is not posted, then it is unknown.

Q: How do I adopt this pet?
A: Please read through the details above under "HOW SAFE HAVENS E-LIST ADOPTION PROGRAM WORKS". Then fill out the application posted in that section. E-list pets are my first priority, so I will contact you ASAP before the deadline, but please be patient, I do have a heavy workload.

Q: Can I adopt if I live out of state?
A: The animals on the euthanasia list have generally been neglected or abused and are very afraid of people because of it. Therefor they are not fit for transport.
However, if you are interested in a pet, we can pull them off the list for you, work with them and get them ready for transport. Fees start at $195 for transport + the regular adoption fee. All transported pets come with a collar with ID attached, a carrier with padding (depending on pet and mode of transport), health certificate if required, bowls, and of course food for the trip. Plus all the other things listed above that regularly come with adoptions. Feel free to e-mail Safe_Haven_Animal_Rescue@live.com so I can give you a more exact quote.

Q: Can I foster this pet?
A: Safe Haven no longer uses fosters. That being said, there are over 170 other rescues that partner with this shelter, and I would be happy to give your information to them and let them set it up with you if I can not find a permanent home for this pet by the deadline.
You can also sign up to foster at a shelter near you. By fostering for the shelter, you prevent that pet from ending up on the euthanasia list in the first place!

Q: Where is this pet?
A: This shelter does not publicize their euthanasia list & has asked that we do not post their name. They do not wish to receive calls about this pet & the pet is in an area of the shelter only available to rescue groups. They have agreed to allow me to network as long as it is done through Safe Haven.

Q: I like what you are doing & would like to help. Would you be open to a partnership?
A: Absolutely! I am open to anything that helps care for the animals &/or saves more lives! Please e-mail me at Safe_Haven_Animal_Rescue@live.com and give me details about what you have in mind.

Q: I run a rescue, what is the A#?
A: If you did not see this pet in your partner alert from the shelter, then you do not partner with this particular shelter. Please sign up to partner with all the shelters near you.

Q: I run a rescue, will you pull this pet for me?
A: Not knowing your rescue & how it is run, I would not be comfortable with that. It is also against my agreement with this shelter to pull for another rescue. They (understandably) want to screen the rescues themselves. I would encourage you to look up all the shelters in your area & go through the approval process to partner with them.

Q: Can I sponsor this pet?
A; Absolutely! Taking care of each pet gets expensive, and we are so grateful for any monthly donation towards the Vet care, food, treats, toys, gas for running them to the dog park, vet ect...
Sponsoring requires the $25 pull fee + a commitment to a set monthly gift to go towards the care of this pet until adopted.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ON EUTHANASIA LIST!!! Only $25, a Litchfield Park Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu for sale in Litchfield Park, or seeking a Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Litchfield Park.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Litchfield Park 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 Litchfield Park 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 Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Litchfield Park paves the way for another one to be saved.
