be my buddy
Terrier Mix
Born: 01/01/1999
10 lbs

Celine lead a meager, terrible existence in an awful Missouri puppy mill for almost the entire first decade of her life. You can see the wear on her body and her soul. She survived her many cruel hard years as a prisoner, being bred over and over until her body could no longer take the abuse. Fortunately Celine was released from her hell on earth and has come to know what it is like to be loved and cared for, just as she loved and cared for the scores of pups she produced over the years only to have them taken away and trucked off to pet stores to be sold to whoever had enough money to make the purchase. Celine is a humble, quiet girl. She adores being held. You can see the hurt in her eyes melting away and the pure enjoyment she gets from loving human contact. Celine is so grateful for every small thing that a typical dog would take for granted. She loves her big spaces that she shares with the other dogs, and all of the blankets and beds, and for the first time in her life she is healthy and enjoying proper nutrition. Celine would be an easy dog to have. She is unassuming and full of love and gratitude. Celine has one micro-eye (smaller than the other one). It does not bother her or effect her vision. Celine is a female terrier. She was born in 1999 and weighs 10 pounds.

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.
