I don’t know what breed I am....some say pittie, some say boxer, even a lab has been thrown around - but all I am told is that whatever mix I am, I have taken the best attributes from them all! 

Hi Everyone! My name is Addy!  I’m looking for a family who wants a chill dog.  I love all people but prefer adults and older children.  Young kids are okay too, as long as they respect me and don’t try to hang on me or pull my ears or tail.

I’m a smart cookie!  Safe Haven had me go to school at Bark Avenue Day Camp and they loved me there!  I’m so smart and showed off my skills!   I know all the basics and would love to show you!

I’ve been in boarding and would love to find a foster or forever family.  I will only have eyes for you and in return, I need to be your one and only.  I prefer not to share my space with other dogs (or cats).

The fosters at Safe Haven all have other dogs but they love me so much that they come and take me out of boarding for some fun.  I really love to go for rides in the car and am absolutely great, enjoying the ride.  I’d be ideal for anybody who wants a slow smell the roses kind of a gal. Excellent on the leash with no pulling – but I am however very interested in the squirrels in the bushes at the Forest Preserve. 

I know the sit command and am eager to please.  Well, except for when they wanted to take my picture, I decided it was a good time for tug of war with the leash! A good tug toy is a must in my new home. I also went on a walk over by the horses (not super close as they were eating) and I was interested in them but was also at ease and wasn’t reactive.  I walked well on the trails and am happy to see people walking by. Usually by the time they bring me back to boarding, I’m pretty tired and sometimes fall asleep stretched out on the lobby floor.  

I am completely housebroken so you don’t have to worry about me having an accident in the house.  Once I have some exercise, I am a professional napper so get ready to have a cuddling (and snoring) partner.

I’ve got a lot of love to give, I love everyone, and I would love to be a part of your family!!!
