Homeward Bound - Adopted!

Now living happily in Des Moines, Iowa

Akron came from a horrific puppy mill in Nebraska that produced some of the most frightened dogs we have ever seen. Whatever went on there was really bad, and it has not been an easy road convincing these beautiful animals that they are now safe and loved. Akron has learned that running around the big, fun yard is just about the closet thing to Heaven. After years of being confined to a tiny wire cage, this little man cannot get over the sweet feeling of freedom. It seems as though he has also come to realize that it is kind people that are providing him this wondrous pleasure and Akron has finally begun to approach us for affection. We are allowed to hold him in our laps and stroke his lovely, feathery hair. And he likes it! He will need to continue his trust training with his new family, but he is ready now for a real home and we think he understands that there are only wondrous things in his bright future.
Buddy Messages (1)
His Buddy, Michelle Rowe from Omaha, NE, sent him this message: "Dear Akron, You are already starting your new life with help from the loving staff and volunteers at HUA. I can't wait to see what lucky family will give you a forever home. All of us in the Rowe household are thinking of you daily! Love, Michelle, Ross, Sookie, Kitty, Hodge and Podge" Akron sends the Rowe family lots of little kisses and shy hugs!

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.
