This little dog is living a modern-day fairy tale. Once a homeless waif, he was rescued and now lives with his heroine, Stephanie. Summer Rae Photography captured the love and friendship Dugan shares with his favorite person, Stephanie. Dugan is a Havanese Poodle mix.
From Stephanie: “Dugan is a rescue and I got him in 2009 from Sparky and the Gang in Orange County. He is a Havanese Poodle Mix and is 8 years old. He was found in the street with 5 other dogs and Sparky and the Gang blocked it off, so they could rescue the dogs accordingly.
He was neglected and abused and had a hard time with men for a long time.
It has been neat to see how far he has come with lots of love. He is the sweetest boy and so well behaved. He truly is a girl’s best friend and fur baby!
As a Makeup Artist, I work with many wonderful photographers, and for Dugan’s 5th ‘gotcha day,’ I wanted to a photo shoot with him, which was captured by Summer Rae photography.”

It’s hard to imagine anyone abusing that sweet adorable little boy! So glad he has a better life now.
Dugan and Stephanie are so lucky to have found each other! Their story and images are heartwarming!

Those are beautiful photos. Dugan looks like a happy pup now.
Havanese x Poodle? Maybe that’s what our Reese is. They could be cousins! Thank you for sharing their happy tale.

What a great adoption story! My girl Phoebe is also an 8 year old Havanese mix who was afraid of men when I adopted her. Weird coincidence. These photos are so beautiful, you can see the love they have for each other.
Love & biscuits,
Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them
Aw! How sweet. And he is exactly what I would expect a Havanese/Poodle X to look like! I think that makes him a ‘hoodle’.
I love all the oodle names!
Love these pics -your photog did a really nice job!

Oops! We don’t know where we got the name Sparky from. We’re very happy Dugan found such a wonderful forever home.
Dugan was rescued by Sparky and the Gang 🙂
