I guess I need a new hobby.....

For the past 6 months I have been looking for a second dog and I've finally found her! We decided after adding Miss Callie to our family we would get a rescue too, so the search began. Searching for a companion for Callie took up quite a bit of my leisure time. Thank goodness for the internet, I couldn't imagine actually going into a shelter, that would break my heart!

We found "Lucky" now known as Roxy (short for Roxanne - Police song) on petfinder and she arrived Friday. They estimate that she's 8 months old and she was listed as a poodle mix, but who knows??? She looks like she could be poodle and/or some sort of terrier. She has been shaved so I don't know what she's going to look like when she grows out but I imagine she'll be super cute! She has a wonderful personality and is blending to our family nicely, so far. We have a couple of issues we need to deal with but I don't see it being a big deal. The one thing that's bothering me the most is how rough she is with Callie. Callie can run away and can defend herself somewhat but Roxy's teeth are bigger and it worries me. It's like we've had this little princess (who is turning one today!!) in our home and we just brought home a scrappy little street dog.

Sorry I'm rambling a bit - too much coffee I guess....

Oh one more big thing - in my search I found another cutie-pie who is available for rescue, sent in an application and wouldn't you know it, they called yesterday to tell me it had been approved and I was first on the list for her! I have to call them and tell them I can't take her today, but it just kills me because she's so darn cute but we couldn't handle three dogs I don't think Plus I have to have faith she'll find a great home. She looks a LOT like a Havanese to me, take a look..... http://search.petfinder.com/petnote/...petid=10282638

Oh and here's a picture of Roxy

Oh, Roxy looks so cute!!! Well sounds like she doesn't have the shy rescue dog personality! Hopefully when she settles in more she doesn't pick on Cally as much!

Huge congratulations!! She is adorable!! I love her sweet little face. I am so happy for you guys I think it is so awesome you decided to rescue. I am a volunteer of the Havanese rescue and have been for a few years, it is just heart breaking the stories you hear. It is nice you are giving Roxy a second chance. On the Havanese rescue site, they have a great educational section that you may find helpful:

Many tips on how to introduce a new pet into the home and so much more.

Lisa - Roxy is adorable. I guess when it rains it pours. There are another couple of cute rescue Havanese being fostered in El Seguno. Quick take away my car keys and internet connection!

Happy One Year Birthday Callie!!! Mommy brought you a new toy sister!!! Congrats!!! Roxie is adorable-- and I love that when you call her you can just sing "roooooxxxxannnne!!!"

They will figure it out--- that's what I was told when I brought Cash home- and it was true. Only interfere if it is getting to rough or you hear real growling not just grumbling. Both your fur babies are totally adorable. please keep us posted on their adventures as well as more pictures.

Missy, Jasper & Cash

Congratulations on your new baby Roxy!

As everyone else has said, Roxy and Callie will come to an understanding regarding pecking order. You're going to love having the two of them together, Havs are so social and I am sure Callie will eventually love having a playmate her size.

Oh, isn't she just the cutest!!?!?!?!?!
And that black one looks a LOT like Cooper when he's not in a puppy cut. I mean, identical!
