Homeward Bound - Adopted!

Now living happily in Lincoln, NE

Sid came to the shelter from a horrendous puppy mill from which we have rescued many, many dogs. If they are not ancient or sick, they are scared, filthy and terribly sad. As was the case with Sid. He was so deprived of life that he would not come out of his crate to meet us. There was a note with him that said he was a fear biter. It took a lot of effort for us to coax him out of the crate, and then outdoors to play. But Sid quickly realized that he loves to run. Every day he runs and runs for a long time. He is a regular little Forrest Gump. He is also the sweetest, softest little fellow and not at all a biter. He has shown us no aggression whatsoever, rather quite the opposite. He approaches us very quietly and gently, so as not to disturb us. He wants very much a pat on the head and a scratch behind the ears but he is still a bit afraid to ask for nice things from people. We can see that he is learning to like us, though. He is watching his dog friends carefully and we are seeing the light beginning to shine in his previously sad little eyes. He sits on our lap and likes looking down at his friends having fun. We are so proud of Sid and admire his courage and tenacity. We cannot wait to show him his new home.

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.
