Biography
Haley is an active young female (turned 5 years old in January) who lived with her owner from the time  Haleyshe was just 8 weeks old. They went through some difficult times together, and then her owner lost her home and had to move in with relatives; sadly, Haley was not welcome there. Her owner contacted GSRNE and was relieved to learn that we would be able to place her in a foster home and help her make the adjustment.

Haley is reserved when meeting someone for the first time, but she quickly warms up and becomes friendly and playful with visitors. She would actually become too playful with visitors in the home and would try to jump up for closer interaction. Her foster parents have been working to teach her to keep all four feet on the floor, and Haley gets it. With people she’s gotten to know well, she’s very playful and animated.

With other dogs, though, she can be quite reactive and will need further work and training on this behavior. She loves going for walks or for rides in the car.

Outside in the fenced yard, Haley loves playing with the stream of water as it comes out of the hose. Haley-1955She tries to catch it and will “talk” to you about it when her mouth closes and the water escapes. She tries to help with the raking, too, and will pull at the rake and dance around in excitement. Whether indoors or out, whatever you’re doing, Haley will want to join in!
