Wade was saved off the euthanasia list at one of the kill shelters. He has those beautiful ice blue eyes that a lot of the cattle dogs have. He is super sweet, outgoing, and very energetic! He would do best with an active family that would take him for a walk for a minimum of 30 minutes a day. He would also be a great hiking partner, or love to go to the dog park! Wade loves to play and is always up for a game of tug-of-war or fetch! When it comes to cuddling, Wade is quite the teddy bear! Even though he weighs 60 pounds, he thinks he is a little lapdog and will happily sit on your lap to cuddle! To funny! He is also very loyal, and likes to sleep on the end of the bed. Wade is very well behaved. He already knows the words crate, fetch, sit, come, and eat. He was a shelter favorite, & the staff was very worried about him when he was on the euthanasia list. This dog has something very special in him!

ADOPTING A CAT OR DOG IS UP TO A 20 YEAR COMMITMENT! THEY ARE NOT OBJECTS THAT YOU CAN GET RID OF WHEN THEY BECOME INCONVENIENT. THEY ARE INNOCENT LIVING, BREATHING ANIMALS WITH FEELINGS THAT DEPEND ON YOU TO TAKE CARE OF THEM. IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO TAKE CARE OF, LOVE, & PAY FOR EVERYTHING THIS PET NEEDS FOR UP TO 20 YEARS, THEN PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR AN APPLICATION.
* Safe Haven STRONGLY believes that collars should only be used as decoration. A dog can slip out of collar. Which becomes a problem if your dog gets lost, or you are trying to restrain your dog, & it comes off. Also, attaching a leash to a collar puts pressure on the neck, which is one of the most sensitive areas of the body, & could hurt them. For these reasons, Safe Haven includes a harness with every dog adoption to ensure the safety of the dog, as a harness is more expensive than a collar & some adopters will not buy them for this reason. A harness distributes the weight on the chest & shoulders. It also has a handle on the back that you can grab if need be, without hurting your pet (EX: Dog falls off your boat, just grab the handle & pull your pet back in with no harm done. With a collar, you would have to strangle your dog when pulling your dog in). Also a dog cannot slip out of a harness, so it is much easier to restrain them& they will never loose their ID if they get lost.
If you need harnesses for your other dogs, additional harnesses can be purchased for a reduced price:
$5 for small
$6 for medium
$7 for large
