be my buddy

Mr. Happy here was transported to the shelter from another rescue group in Wyoming, where there are too many dogs and not enough adopters. He is such a special little guy with a love for toys that comes close to that of the famous Darik Dachshund. Oscar is all about good times. He is a high roller when it comes to play time, but also cherishes the time he spends in the many warm laps he encounters belonging to staff and volunteers. Although he is loving and generally an all-around great fella, we think someone may have been mean to Oscar at one time in his life. He loves to be held, but we must be careful not to startle him when we pick him up. It scares him, as if it's been done roughly to him before and he remembers. This deeply saddens us as we cannot imagine anyone ever intentionally hurting Oscar or being too rough with him. Nonetheless, Oscar adores people and is incredibly thrilled at the prospect of a fabulous home where he can play the day away, every day.

His Buddy, Carolyne Joseph, from Edmonds, Washington, sent him this message: "Hi Oscar, My name is Dweezel Dachshund and I am almost 14 years old. My mom, Carolyne Joseph, and I would love to be your buddy until you find a lucky family to give you a forever home. Lots of love an kisses." Oscar sends Dweezel and Carolyne 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.
