Hi, my name is Iggy. I live in Florida and have for as long as I can remember. But my world turned upside down recently when my human parent passed away.
When my new foster mom got me, I weighed in at over 33lbs. I am so proud of myself. I've lost 4 1/2 pounds thanks to her love and support! I am on a diet that must be maintained so I can lose 8-10 pounds, and keep it off, so don't let me charm you into giving me treats. My foster family has been wonderful, and I have a lot more energy to have fun playing with my new toys and going on walks with my foster family. They say I bounce and prance now on our walks!
To be honest, I will say that I don't like cats (who really does?). And full disclosure, it took me awhile to get used to my foster siblings. So, I would probably be happiest if I was in an "only dog" family because that's really what I was before I came to HRI.
I am only 8 years old, which is not old for us Havanese! I am housebroken, crate trained, and love my walks on a leash! I love my toys and enjoy flinging them around, rolling on them, and playing with them, hearing them squeak, so I am easily entertained. And I am a true Velcro dog! Why live together if you aren't going to BE together, that's what I always say.
Humm, what else? Oh, I don't know about small children, I've never been around them but, I do enjoy the older ones. The important thing is I am a good-natured fellow, great companion and I want to be happy again, with my own family. But since I grew up as an only dog in a one-human home, I really only need one person to love me. Could you be that person? We can share the best years of our lives together, happy at last.
A fee will be requested to adopt this dog. The recommended fee amount will be based on the dog's age, and medical and behavioral issues, if any. A completed application is required if you are interested in adoption. Thank you for considering a rescue dog!
