Homeward Bound - Adopted!

Now living happily in Papillion, Nebraska

Thornton came to us from a small town along with his brothers and sister after his mother passed away from anti-freeze poisoning when Thornton was only two weeks old. He is a fun-loving boy whose favorite thing in the world is running in the yard. He runs, he rests for a bit and soaks up attention from people, then he's off to run some more! Thornton would thrive with an active family who will join him in exploring all sorts of new places. Those places might be scattered around the country, about the neighborhood, or in the nooks and crannies of his very own yard. For Thornton, the scale of the adventure does not matter as long as he has people he loves to share it with.

Thornton is a small fellow now but is expected to weigh about 60 pounds fully grown.
Buddy Messages (1)
His Buddy, Chris Evers, from Lincoln, NE, sent him this message: "Dear Thornton--you look like a little spark plug. You can tell by the expression on your face! Once your perfect family finds you--you will have all kinds of new adventures! Hugs and kisses from your buddy!!!" Thornton can't wait for more adventures, and sends Chris lots of very happy smiles and plenty of puppy 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.
