This girl loves affection and gives plenty of it in return. Ruby is a beautiful color and even more stunning in person. She is dog selective and only wants to play with those she chooses. She is outgoing and loves everyone.
Would you like to always have a happy face and a wagging tale to greet you when you come home from a hard day’s work? Ruby is the gal for you. Love doesn’t make the world go ‘round, Love makes the ride worthwhile! This happy girl needs her forever family to take her home and all her dreams will come true.

Open the door and say hello to Jax! This adorable fella was picked up as a stray in Northwest Florida. Luckily he was rescued by Houndhaven and happily his days of straying are behind him. Jax has settled in nicely at Houndhaven and has proven to be quite the snuggle bug.
Jax is a handsome 1 ½ year old black lab mix. He weighs just under 50 pounds, and when he isn’t romping around having fun, he wouldn’t mind an invite to cuddle with you on the sofa, or even your lap. Jax is very sweet and enjoys getting snuggles from our volunteers and happily shows them his appreciation with kisses in return.
Jax is a happy-go-lucky boy and has been enjoying playtime while at Houndhaven with his little buddy May. He also enjoys going for walks, and even though he is young and playful, he walks nicely on a leash. Jax does well with baths and loves playing with toys.
While Jax was found as a stray, he has always kept a sweet demeanor and just wants to be loved. If you’ve been looking to add a special little someone to your family, Jax is the boy for you. Please visit to review our adoption policies and procedures, and complete an application.
