ADOPTED ON 06-6-15 – Dogs in the south are so plentifully that you can see anywhere from three to five or six homeless dogs in a 15 minute drive home from work. Therefore, some southern pet owners in the south, don’t have the same value that dog’s lovers in the north have. While we don’t understand why, they also don’t understand our attachment to our dogs. Captain is a male 2 year old Bichon / Havanese mix. He weighs around 15 lbs and has a high activity level. He is neutered and up to date on all vaccinations. Captain will be able to travel north near the end of June.
This dog cannot be adopted to Massachusetts residents due to new laws regarding rescue dogs being prohibited from adoption. Please contact Patricia Cabral at: 617-626-1786 or Mike Cahill at: 617-626-1794 for questions regarding what dogs you are allowed to adopt.
RESCUE IS THE SOLUTION, NOT THE PROBLEM
Captain originally rescued from the Winnsboro, LA pound, he was one of those three to five homeless dogs and lucky for him that he was picked up and that he caught the eye of an angel that saw the sweet soul he had. He was adopted out to a wonderful family, but through no fault of his own, he was returned to rescue once unforeseen circumstances arose. He was then adopted out again and was listed a few weeks later on a Lost and Found page on Facebook. When the same rescue person saw the same thing on Facebook a few weeks later for a second time, she contacted the person who was keeping him safe. Apparently his “adopter” would just let him wander and did not answer any phone calls or questions when the person who had found Captain called. Fortunately, for Captain the adopter agreed to let our southern foster Patricia take him back in her care.
Captain is a high energy little guy that loves to explore. He enjoys the company of other dogs around his age. He loves going camping and fishing, and going for rides on the ATV. He is very friendly with other dogs and people, he never seems to meet a stranger. He is a little wary around children under the age of eight, he is not quite sure of their quick impulsive movements. However, he does very well with children who are a little older. He is very curious, smart, full of life and loves to be with his people. He is fully house trained as long as is given regular times to go out. He tolerates the crate, but usually sleeps freely. He is excellent on leash and it looks to his person for guidance. He rides freely in the car.
The ideal home for Captain would be an active family with older children, where he could be part of everything they do. A fenced in yard is a must for this guy, because he is very curious and likes to explore unless you are a daily runner that can meet his energy level while he is young. This tiny guy is ready for any big adventure you might have planned. He loves to be outside, so long hikes and walks would be great for Captain. He would enjoy another dog his size to play with and keep him company. At night when all the activity is said and done he loves to snuggle up and watch TV. If you are looking for a fun, spunky side kick, Captain is your guy!!
ABOUT THE BREED
HAVANESE – are gentle and affectionate breed that thrives on human companionship. They will often follow you from room to room throughout the day. He’s intelligent as well, and will enjoy making you laugh with goofy antics, or simply sitting on your lap watching the world go by. They pack a lot of personality into a tiny little body.

They’ll simply do their best to charm and entertain a person in order to get a reaction. They are easy to train and travel well, and they will want to come with you wherever you go, because they hate to be left alone. As long as the Havanese has a loving family to call his own, he’ll be a happy dog.
