Profile

Halo came into RAGOM from a commercial breeder, but she is now learning to enjoy life in a home with a loving family. She especially loves to be petted and hang out with these humans she’s learning about. Her forever home will require another medium to large, confident dog to help continue building her confidence with all the new things she is experiencing. She can live with cats. Children should be age 13 or older, and Halo will need a fenced yard to keep her safe.

To understand why RAGOM will adhere to our requirements for Halo regarding children and another dog, please read about Retired Breeding Dogs.

Halo for the most part is doing well. She continues to do her daily walks. Her safe spot for walking is in between her two foster brothers. I have a leash that is hooked around my waist to keep her safe. She will bolt at sudden noises; it can be me just scraping my feet loudly on gravel that will frighten her. She loves her car rides.

Halo has discovered the red squirrel in the tree and she is a real squirrel hunter.

At this time, I feel this is what Halo needs in a forever home:

  • A quiet home without a lot of company coming in and out.
  • A secure fenced-in yard.
  • A home where her people will have much patience as she is delicate and sensitive.
  • At least one very confident resident dog that will help her with new situations, people, and be a playmate to her.

Halo has many good traits. She has never had an accident in the house and will come and stand in front of you to go outside. Loves to be petted. She has a remarkable eye-to-mouth coordination when catching popcorn! She is not a barker.

Halo is still very much a work in progress but I know with patience, time, and love this little girl will make someone a very loving and loyal family member.

Welcome beautiful RAGOM girl Halo, named for the angel that rescued her from a commercial dog breeder.

She is a beautiful and sweet girl who is learning what it is like to live in a house with two cats and two resident dogs who are showing her the ropes. She loves my resident dogs and follows them for confidence. Halo’s forever family must include another medium to large, confident dog to continue providing a role model.

Halo has typical reactions to new things and people that come along with not having been socialized and exposed to them for the first four years of her life. She startles easily at sudden movements and loud noises, and she needs time to trust humans. Therefore, children in her home should be dog savvy and 13 years old or older.

She has been updated on her shots, is heartworm negative, and has been spayed. Initially she was treated for hookworms and is now clear. Halo has been on an anti-anxiety medication to help her with all the new changes and she has been adjusting well.

Halo is learning to walk on a leash with her two foster brothers. She is starting to relax and will stop to smell what her fur brothers are smelling. A physical fence will be required in Halo’s forever home to keep her safe; she is a risk for fleeing if startled.

Halo has a way to go but she loves to be petted and will stay by you for hours just wanting affection. Halo responds to love and will, with patience, make a wonderful family member.

Halo has beautiful eyes.
