The dogs listed in this section are in, or waiting for, foster care and are not yet available. If you're willing to wait, or to foster, you may still complete an adoption application to be considered as a candidate.
Lilly is a 17 week old fluff ball of a puppy... She's currently 7 pounds and growing. Lilly is very friendly; very outgoing, very smart and just a little stubborn. She loves to play with other small dogs and is neither dominant or submissiove. She's right in the middle and is quite the little talker. We like to refer to chatty Havanese as "talkers"!
Lilly will let you know when its dinnertime or when she wants up on your lap. She will need your help for that toy that is just out of her reach or help getting down the stairs. Sometimes its a bark, sometimes a squeak, sometimes a groan or a little growly rumble with her tail a waggin.
Lilly is crate trained and we are still working on housetraining. She's learning to come when her name is called, loves her treats and going for walks.

Calming Canine Music
The creators of the Through A Dog’s Ear series have collaborated with Victoria Stilwell, star of Animal Planet’s It’s Me or the Dog, and developed the new Canine Noise Phobia Series
Does your dog suffer from a fear of thunderstorms? Does his anxiety level increase when the storm clouds roll in? Thunderstorm phobia is a very common condition among dogs all over the world. The terror that results can be an incredibly distressing, debilitating problem not only for dogs, but also for their owners who feel powerless to help. This groundbreaking desensitization tool will teach your dog to associate positive feelings with thunderstorms rather than feeling fearful, and will help to gradually reduce your dog’s fear when exposed to these sounds. When used properly and implemented in conjunction with the behavioral modification protocols included in the CD liner notes, you have an excellent chance of rehabilitating your thunder-phobic dog and preventing thunder-phobia from ever developing in younger dogs.
