Havanese in Pasadena Shelter

This poor dog isn't even listed with a name or as being male or female. I'm not sure if this is a kill shelter, but I'm always concerned when there is so little information listed on a dog. http://www.petfinder.com/petnote/dis...petid=15212122

I couldn't find just where to contact someone with HRI unless I am giving up my own dogs (which I would NEVER do!). Can someone please let an HRI rep know about this little one?

there is an adult havanese male (approx 1 1/2 ) in the san luis obispo shelter.
(the link is ten miles long, but if you google san luis obispo animal shelter and search for dogs..)
i called for info. according to the shelter he bit a child on the hand over the weekend when a family was there checking him out.. they don't know exactly what happened, so he is being held for further evaluation.
my sis lives in slo and i was going to go down and "visit", but with grandkids,
can't have a biting dog.. j.j. would have loved having a buddy..
maybe someone else in the area?????

God bless URL shorteners; try this link: http://ow.ly/HWmL

He looks adorable. Hopefully the shelter's behaviorists will find that the bite was a lark and release him for adoption soon. A good trainer should be able to help the new owner prevent future incidents if the dog doesn't have the type of serious behavior/aggression issues that would prevent the shelter from adopting him out.

Were you able to get through to someone at HRI? The poor dog look terrified in the photo.

That dog in SLO looks well cared for. I would bet the bite incident is a total fluke, just a by-product of being scared and in a shelter. I pulled a dog once in danger of euthanasia for being a fear-biter and once outside the shelter, I saw no signs of a dog that would bite. It was a scary feeling for me, because I could imagine if my own dogs were to find themselves alone and scared in a shelter I could invision how easily a dog could strike out in fear!

Those are scary places, many with damp concrete and scared and angry barking all around. A dogs family is gone the foods are changed, the rules are changed--it's just like being thrown in jail.

Tracy, I got a PM from Pat who works with HRI, so was thinking she forwarded the info to them.

Oh, good! I'm glad. Hopefully they can help the poor little guy/gal. (I still can't believe they didn't include that info on the post you found! It's not like it's a difficult thing to check!)

The one in the Pasadena shelter is now listed as a Poodle mix

Unfortunately, my DDIL, who's been there looking to adopt in the past, says it is NOT a no-kill shelter
