Sweetie Pie Heron is a lover and a fighter. Although he was rescued from a puppy mill known for severely abusive conditions, he has emerged a tiny hero. Even though he is still somewhat shy and wary of new situations, he has forced himself to branch out into the world full of fun and is allowing himself to be happy. His best friend and room-mate, Phoebe, feels very safe with Heron and he keeps a watchful eye on her if he thinks she is feeling uncomfortable. He is so very caring and concerned if anything is troubling her. We think Heron is the best of all dogs and applaud him constantly for his bravery. A home is what he needs, what he so very much deserves, and we will work very hard to make sure that he gets the very best.

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.
