Yes, we really think so! She has come a very long way in the nearly three years SLSR has had her, but she will need a really special home Quiet, no children, a securely fenced yard, and at least one other calm and playful dog because Haley takes many of her cues from other dogs.

Haley came to us from a puppy mill. She had been there from birth and she’s now about 8 years old. She’s been spayed, is UTD with her vaccines, HW negative and has been chipped. The family who adopts Haley will need to understand her history and love her in spite of her quirks, realizing that she may never be a completely what you would call normal dog She much prefers to be in the house rather than outside which was not the case when she came to live with her foster mom. She seems to really like it when people come to visit, especially when they bring their dogs along. She doesn't care how small or big they are!

She may have quirks, but she is a love!; She’s quiet, very sweet and gentle. When people meet her, they would love to be able to hug and love her right away, and that is one of the difficult things about living with Haley. She is just beginning to learn that being touched or petted by a human isn't so bad. She needs to be able to learn these things at her own speed.

She is quick to learn by repetition of words. She has learned that hands can mean good things like petting, massage, and feeding her treats, although still; quite timid about those things.; When she is on a leash, she will walk along when you say “Let’s go, Haley” and does not pull on the leash, but startles easily and will jump away.

Her foster mom would adopt her in a New York minute, if not for circumstances that make it impossible. The adoption process may take a while, as we feel that multi-visits to the adopter’s home and to the foster home for the adopters will make the final placement less stressful for Haley. We are looking for experienced dog owners. Sammy owners would be great. Past experience with a dog from a puppy mill would be great, but someone with a willingness to work with Haley with a gentle and patient attitude would be a big plus.

A fenced yard for Haley is a must.
