Exclamation 3 Adorable, Adoptable Pups in Memphis, TN

I received an e-mail from AdoptaPet,com this morning. There are three adorable Havanese puppies listed as available for adoption in Memphis, TN.

They have been rescued by Sunny Meadows...Safe Haven for Pets, Memphis, TN 901-363-7233 www.sunnymeadows.org This Saturday, there will be an adoption event, so if you or someone you know is in the Memphis area and would like to add a beautiful, young furbaby to your family, now is the time.

The pictures below are in the following order:

Lambert:

Very shy little boy, recently rescued from a breeder. Lambert weighs 6 lbs and was born 2/21/2011 (per the breeder)

He is great with other dogs. Very sweet, docile and gentle. He needs socialization.

He is neutered, current on vaccines, heart worm negative and healthy.


Lexie:

This girl is definitely the life of the party. She is such a friendly, adorable little girl. She is approximately 5 months of age and currently weighs 9 lbs. She adores her furry friends, and her humans too.
This girl was rescued from a breeder. Thankfully, she wasn't old enough to breed, and therefore of no use to the breeder.
She is current on vaccines, spayed, heart worm negative and current on heart worm prevention.

Linus:

This boy was rescued from a breeder. Unfortunately, not an affectionate, loving breeder. This boy didn't receive quality human interaction, and for that reason, is not quite sure what intentions humans have. He is learning that humans can be very affectionate, and very sweet to him. He is reserved, though quickly learning to trust that good humans can be trusted. He is excellent with other dogs, and has a very gentle nature. In time, he will become a very affectionate little boy if given the love he so deserves. He only weighs 12.9 lbs and is approximately a year of age. He is neutered, current on vaccinations, heart worm negative, and current on heart worm prevention

This just sets me off. A person can apply for a dog on these sites and be turned down or just not even looked at and then you will see that they have an adoption day and it is first come first served.l This site is having an adoption day this coming Saturday. If you are in Memphis and one of the first to get there, you can probably get a great Havanese puppy. I won't be participating. Lucile

Hi, Lucille,

I didn't mean to upset anyone. I just wanted to let people know about these dogs.

Is this rescue group problematic? If so, I won't post about this group anymore.

sorry I didn't mean to upset you either. I just have not had good luck with rescues in general. I fostered 7 kittens for a rescue in Nashville. They wouldn't let me adopt one of them after 12 weeks old; but they took them to PetSmart and let anyone have one. I do not understand the mentality. (reason I couldn't adopt one was because I wouldn't swear not to let it outside ever.) The people at PetSmart that adopted could just tell them anything and go home with a kitten.

Lucille:

I am sorry that that rescue group was so nonsensical. It is illogical that you could not adopt one of the kittens that you were good enough to foster for them.

Enough of that, though. I saw your other post about your upcoming medical procedure. I have been through a lot myself, healthwise, over the past decade, and I do understand your concerns. I am happy to be here with my DH and two Havs, even though physically I am not the same as I was before surgeries and years of chemo.

We all wish you the very best outcome. Stay feisty - it worked for me!

What does "rescued from a breeder" mean? Why don't they just say rescued from a puppy mill?

I like the one that stated "breeder gave up because it was too old to sell". Now there is a responsible breeder for ya!

Exclamation Update on Adorable, Adoptable Havanese in Memphis, TN

Update:

Lambert is no longer on the rescue's website, but two new boys have been added. I wonder if there will be others. It looks as if these dogs were indeed surrendered by a breeder [no comment] who could not sell or otherwise place them.

I would snatch up Lexie in a heartbeat if I lived near there. What a doll!

Anyway, Tatum is a one year old and Lenny is approximately 2 years old.

Here are photos of Tatum and Lenny:

My fiancee and I picked up Lambert yesterday morning. I applied to adopt him last week and they talked to my vet and references before calling to talk to me and ultimatly approving us to adopt him.

Although they do have "open adoption" days, I was told that its not just first come, first served and you still have to fill out the application and be approved.

Lambert (whose name is now Watson) is home and sleeping on my lap right now.

Congratulations Allison! Thank you for saving Watson.

I hope he's fitting in with your family (it sounds like he is )
