Homeward Bound! - Adopted!

Happily living in Nebraska City, NE.

Jackson and his brothers came to HUA in January 2009 from a puppy mill in Arkansas that would soon be shut down. When the mill failed to sell their litter, the dogs were tied up outside, and they lived that way for nearly a year. Their physical condition upon arrival at HUA was horrendous, but even worse was their terror of humans. They are still a work in progress, but intensive socialization work with a volunteer has brought about a lot of healing.

Jackson may look big and strong, but his whole body used to shake when a human was in the same room as his pen. He is still kind of a shy guy, but he has learned to LOVE being petted, and he is coming up more and more often to ask for it! In most things he tends to follow the lead of his best pal Lincoln, but when it comes to petting, Jackson will come up to his volunteer by himself. He barks and squeals with joy when he sees his volunteer, and if Lincoln is already up on a couch, Jackson will happily become the other "bookend" dog and lounge on the couch with a petter between the two of them. He has lots of energy and loves to run and play and explore. He is also the greatest music lover of them all! As soon as his volunteer is seated, Jackson will settle somewhere nearby, put his head on his crossed paws and stare expectantly as if to say, "What are you going to sing for me first?" He would be in seventh heaven with an adopter who would serenade him with soft, gentle melodies and pet him at the same time!

His Buddy, Serina Chan, from San Diego, California, sent him this message: "Dear Jackson, you are such a beautiful, happy looking boy!

Jackson sends Serina many happy, grateful hugs and kisses.

Thanks for Visiting Our Animals!

Hearts United for Animals is a national no-kill shelter, sanctuary and animal welfare organization. Hearts United for Animals does long distance adoptions if there are safe flights and we have volunteers in the area to do a home visit. We require an application, references and a home visit to adopt one of our dogs. Our dogs are all spayed or neutered and are current on health care. We can cat test a dog if requested. If you are interested in adopting a dog, we can give you more information on each dog if you click the Adoption Info & Application link above. Buddies are people who support the dog and send them love while they are waiting for their new home. The dog does not live with the buddy.
