On April 15th, 2013, Hearts United for Animals rescued 19 dogs from miserable conditions where they had lived for years in a Lancaster County, Nebraska puppy mill. Most of them were underweight, and all have medical issues due to severe neglect. All of the dogs were so happy to be rescued. They delighted in the comfort given to them by their rescuers. They enjoyed their clean new spaces and wonderful soft food. They lapped up their fresh, clean, abundant drinking water – something they had been lacking.
Rescuers decided that these dogs are definitely rock stars! They came through their ordeal with such happy, positive attitudes, looking forward to their much improved new lives. They survived, they endured, and they will become loved family members.
Sheryl may be a bit younger than her estimated age, but she did have some serious health problems when she arrived. She lost 19 teeth, had a benign tumor removed, was anemic and suffered from a pretty serious urinary tract infection. She looked like a nightmare, the poor darling. But she has proven herself to be a true rock star. Sheryl loves to be in big groups of people and insists on copious amounts of cuddles. Everything is delightful to her and her precious smiles light up our hearts. She loves everything and everyone and every new experience. Her new family will be filled with wonder at the moxy of this tiny survivor.
