Haku means "pure" in Japanese! I was named for my pure, passionate and overwhelming love for everyone around me!

I came to the rescue when my dad was stationed in Japan and heartbroken that he couldn't take me with him.

I've missed him so much ever since! Everyday I do the things I did with him with other dogs so I can try and remember what it felt like to be with him! But it's just not the same.

So, I'm hoping a new family can come scoop me up and show me what it feels like to be a part of a home and family again!

I am good with other dogs, I love playing chase with them or tugging on chew toys.

I'll need a happy and active home so that my life will be full of love and fun!

I am a bit anxious and nervous around new people, and people in general! Slow introductions, a safe space I can retreat to like a crate and not forcing me into spaces with tons of people will help me be myself all the time!

Haku can only be adopted in the local or TX area.
Local adoption only, in San Antonio or TX area, $200.

Something to Consider:

  • Puppies don't train themselves

    If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.

     

    Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.

  • Puppies turn into dogs...
