Story
“I came to H.A.L.O. in 2019 as a stray. I was and still am a scared little cookie. I have come a long way thanks to the encouragement of my trainers, handlers, and caregivers. I do best with positive based methods. Because of my fears, restraint being number one, I was first muzzle trained and actually, I don’t mind it at all! Once I was comfortable wearing my new jewelry, I was able to continue to be shown new experiences like salon days with pedicures, and in the end… it wasn’t really as bad as I thought!When I trust you, I open up into a bundle of mush. I enjoy walks… especially hiking trails, one on one time with enrichment toys, and fetch! I do need to be an only child, and one can never forget that I will never unlearn to use my teeth if I am pushed into a corner. If we take this journey together, I can promise we will create an incredible bond and when I feel safe, I can conquer any fears with you by my side!”Requirements: Requirements: Fence; Misfit, Handler appointment onlyAll of our dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, up to date with age appropriate vaccinations, heart worm or feleuk/FIV tested, fecal tested, rabies and tag, and microchipped before being placed in your home.

Story
I am a gentle giant, who loves my people and doing fun activities to build my confidence, like nose work, agility, & snuff matts!While I have not bitten, I tend to get possessive of my things and am not the best at sharing, so a home with older children and no other pets is best so there is an understanding on how to manage "mine." If you say yes to me, I ask you alo commit to my stainless steel bowl, which I have had for every moment since arriving at H.A.L.O. and take my "Wilson" with me everywhere!

Story
Howie was transferred to H.A.L.O. from a vet clinic he was never picked up from over 500 days ago.Weighing in just under 100lbs this Howie lives up to his name as a noble watchman and guardian.Howie is a Misfit because as a loyal and strong protector of his inner circle, he is not keen on strangers approaching.If Howie does not know a person or situation, he will become quickly uncomfortable and it has led to previous bites. Especially during vetting, restraint, or nail trims a sedative and muzzle are always his and your best tool.In a home, with his family Howie is super loveable… he would allow for 24-hour belly rubs. He loves land and water, so as an only pet in a home with a doggie door that leads to space to roam, he would hit his lottery. Maybe part piglet, Howie does enjoy digging for exercise, so not a home that needs a perfectly manicured lawn. Requirements: Martingale Collar; 6' Fence; Misfit; Handler Appointment OnlyAll of our dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, up to date with age appropriate vaccinations, heart worm or feleuk/FIV tested, fecal tested, rabies and tag, and microchipped before being placed in your home.
