My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Hi! My name is Jack and I am a 2 yr old cattle dog mix. I am a bouncy bundle of playful energy, so I will need an active family and preferably another dog who will play with me. I am deaf, but don't let my hearing impairment stop you from considering me as a new member of your family. My intelligence and love of food makes me easy to train! I have already mastered some sign language-- I've mastered "sit" and am learning my name and how to come. I am a creature of habit and really thrive with routine. If you ask my foster parents about my disposition, they will tell you that I’m 50% Labrador 50% cattle dog-- a goofball with a strong work ethic! I am crate-trained, house broken, neutered and up-to-date on my vaccinations. If you are interested in meeting me, please contact (Note: all adopters must be over the age of 21 yr).

More about this rescue

Herding Haven is a non-profit (501c3) organization that rescues and rehabilitates dogs with special needs so that they may become more adoptable. The dogs in our rescue come largely from shelters where they have been deemed "unadoptable" to the general public due to physical disabilities, medical problems and/or behavioral issues. Herding Haven provides medical care, physical and behavioral rehabilitation and then works to very hard to find the dogs the perfect forever home.
