Pongo

be my buddy
Dachshund
Born: 02/25/2001
Small
10 lbs
Male

Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Omaha, Nebraska.

We honestly do think he is the cutest bug on Earth. OK, so he has no teeth. But we think his crooked little lips are charming. He's a tad bow-legged. Equally endearing. His perfectly round brown eyes and floppy, weather-worn ears melt our hearts. Our Pongo is a super special guy. His life has been so bad and so sad and yet still he loves us very much and is eternally grateful to be in our care. Pongo lived for many years outside, tied to a chain. Sometimes he was thrown some food, but more often than not the feral cats in the run-down area stole it from him before he could even get a mouthful. This dear, sweet boy was so relieved to be rescued that he's never had a single bad word for us. He is pure love and devotion. Pongo wonders what it's like to live with a family that lets him sleep indoors. He wonders what it's like to have a family feed him when he is hungry and shoo away any siblings that want to steal from him. He loves his bed at HUA and wonders if a new family would give him one as well. Please adopt Pongo. He will never let you forget that you saved the rest of his life.

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.
