OK guys....ANDY NEEDS A HOME....

UPDATED SOME INFO AND TITLE SO MAYBE SOMEONE MIGHT FALL IN LOVE?? You never know.

He's so cute!



Also I am talking to HRI also. I'll keep you updated.

My brother decided NOT to keep the havanese mix.....

OK so lots of factors contributed not the least of which being my niece got a new puppy with her BF and she lives at home.

Here are the issues with Andy. He is not fully potty trained. Has pee accidents. Also he is not trained to walk on a leash.

UPDATE: He's been here for several hours. Hasn't had an accident. He even went to the door and did the circle spins to go out and pee. Go Andy.

UPDATE: I worked with him on leash. He definitely pulls pulls. But when you stop he immediately stops and by the time we got back from the corner he was doing much better. Obviously needs more work but he's really smart. Good job Andy.

They are not the owners but were willing to take him in so the owners didn't send him to the pound.


He's coming tomorrow for a playdate so I can take more pictures and try to figure out how to help. I don't want to keep passing the poor dog around though so I need some good advice. We do not want another dog [hoping not to fall in love].

Thanks so much...

Oh here are pictures.




Winston's Mom, Trish

He is so cute!

If you can't find a loving home please turn to Havanese rescue. Havanese rescue will take him in and find a wonderful home for him.

http://havaneserescue.com/

The entire Havanese Resuce team is just wonderful. The foster families are fantastic and have worked such miracles on puppies / dogs that have been turned in. The web site features a lot of great articles / information.

It's a great group to volunteer for too! I know foster homes are always needed!

Good luck!
Marie

I've sent my contact at HRI an email. I was just letting the board know about him as we're always curious about outcomes.

If there is still someone on here who really wants him and is willing to deal with the issues, then that would be wonderful too! Love to have a win-win.

As you know, the good thing about Hav. rEscue is that the foster family will train in properly and then release him to the Perfect forever home!! I hope that they will consider this as an option. I would foster him in a second!!!
He really is adorable.

I wish that you were closer..I'd take him on in a heartbeat
Potty training and leash training have become second nature to me with all of my fosters..lol
Consistancy (and belly bands) are the key to the potty training issue...leash training is pretty simple as well.
Just keep him hooked to you and he'll figure out that he doesn't have any choice but to follow..great for potty training too

Trish - you can teach the little sweetie to walk on a leash in a few minutes - that's how Henry learned (in front of me, to my amazement, from a trainer)

Heard back from HRI...they're bombarded right now [so sad] and are trying to only take purebred havanese. I'm getting more info for her.

He's coming tomorrow for a playdate [was supposed to be today but they couldn't do it].....anyway...I'll post more pics and keep you posted.

I am afraid I'll end up with him. I just really want to be the 'middle man' so to speak. Oy. We are a one dog house.

Thanks for help.

I might try to take him on a walk and see. I know that I've worked with Pepper [brother's dog] and she's much better for them and us now.

I just want to see how he interacts with me and with Winston and get a feel for him.


Winston's Mom, Trish

Trish, he does look adorable. If Havanese Rescue doesn't work out, you can try HALO. They do take owner turn ins in addition to puppy mill rescues.

Let us know how it goes tomorrow. Poor little guy
