sweetisabella11.08  It would be hard to find a more engaging puppy than Isabella!  This little gal can run like the wind, play with a toy, chase a foster sibling or two and still be up for a nice ear rub and tummy scratch all before her morning nap.

Now five months old, Isabella was surrendered into our foster program by a very loving and caring family who had only her best interest at heart. After an injury to her elbow resulting in a fracture, Isabella needed costly surgery to save her leg. The family's kind veterinarian and staff were aware of HRI and helped with Isabella's transfer.  She did remarkably well with the surgery which involved all sorts of nifty hardware - wires and pins- and is good as new. She's healing beautifully and shows no sign of injury at this point.

Isabella is as bright as a wishing star. Someone is going to be very lucky to adopt this little girl. She's currently enjoying the company of several other Havanese and keeps them all busy with her playfulness. 

Isabella is telling us that she would love a happy home without kids under the age of 10. She's hoping to take obedience or "tricks" classes when she's a little older and may even work out in rally or as a therapy dog. She has never met a stranger (she figures everyone is a friend who just hasn't figured that out yet) and she loves activity. Isabella is one smart little dog who learns very quickly! She's almost completely housetrained already too.

Applicants interested in adopting Isabella should complete an adoption application. Sharing your anticipated plans for training and involvement of Isabella in a given activity such as obedience, rally, pet therapy or education is appreciated.
