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.

A Grand Success!
On behalf of the Board of Directors of Havanese Rescue, Inc, I want to personally thank each and every one of you who helped in any way make our 2014 HRI Fall Auction the most successful ever. The auction raised $19,520.00!
A special thank you to Laura Cascino, our auctioneer extraordinaire, who tackles this monumental task cheerfully year after year.
This year, on HRI's 10th anniversary, the beautiful Forever Home quilt honors the nearly 900 rescue Havanese HRI has helped to find their forever home. The most generous bid of $5,000 not only speaks to the artistry of the quilt, but also to our donor's dedication to rescue. Thank you.
We thank all our donors and vendors for providing such a fun variety of wonderful items for bidding. Whether you quilted, donated, solicited, held a winning bid, shared auction publicity with your social media and friends or cheered from the sidelines, you all supported the 2014 HRI Annual Auction, and we are so grateful.
The beneficiaries of your generosity are the rescue pups we are helping today and those we will be able assist in the future. A tail wagging thank you from them.

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.
