08/31/2020 message from Tinsel's adopter:
Ten years ago our sweet Tinsel joined our family through HRI. We renamed her Annie. She was a puppy mill survivor having been a breeder dog living in a rabbit hutch.
Today she crossed Rainbow Bridge. She had CHF.
She was my Eeyore and could be quite funny. She had gone deaf, but she could still bark the loudest of any of the pack. If you had food, she was your best friend and always let us know when it was time for the evening snack.
When it was time to go camping, she was always the first one at the gate and would look at us like what are you waiting for !!
Run free sweet Annie.

Meet Tinsel, a recent puppy mill breeder dog and survivor who needed a full-time foster mom to help her learn how wonderful life should be for a 2.5 year old Havanese. She has already begun to make progress, in baby steps.
While still skittish and shy, she has been leaving the crate on her own, more and more each day, seeking the other canines and yes, the humans, companionship (although still at a distance)
Tinsel's coat is gorgeous, a nice texture with many different colors dispersed throughout it- grey, black and silver, with tan on her ears and legs. She is going to be beautiful when her coat grows out. She weighs about 16 lbs and has the longest legs...
She is sleeping through the night in her crate, and seems to have housetrained quickly.
Tinsel is being fostered in Maryland.
This dog is iin our "Foster To Adopt" program, which means he's being fostered by his eventual adopters. Information on the program may be found here. Participation in this program may increase your chances of adopting a Havanese.
