Dog: Haley is a rescued, eleven year old-ish “Terrier/Poodle mix of some kind” or that’s the best guess. She also goes by Diva Pup, and The dog-child.
Human: Haley lives with Heather and Sinead on Rockview Street, and they’ve lived in J.P. since 2008.
“Haley was rescued by her mom Sinead when Sinead was living in Ecuador. Sinead was driving down the Calle de Amazonas on the way to go hiking with a friend when she saw a man holding puppies over his head walking up and down the median of the highway trying to sell them. Legend has it she slammed on the breaks, pulled over and gave the man all of her cd’s, her ex-partner’s jacket and 20 dollars and the rest is history. Haley immigrated to the United States with her mom in 2006 and has never looked back.”
Does your J.P. Dog have any funny quirks, odd behaviors, or defining characteristics?
“She speaks spanish, she can’t control her licker and often demands to be carried around on your hip as if she were a toddler. She is quite the opportunist and always steals my pillows when I roll over at night. She is terrified of wind, poor thing, and will hide between your legs if the wind blows the curtains or makes the doors creak.”

“Squirrel hunting at the Forrest Hills Cemetery, rolling in the grass in Jamaica Pond, getting treats at Blanchards and enjoying cow paws at JP Licks.”
