Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Ann was rescued from a commercial breeding facility in Nebraska. She had a very hard life there. For 5 years she produced puppies for pet stores. She lived in a cage while her teeth rotted away and her health deteriorated. We were told that she fought off a male dog trying to mount her and that her scars didn't heal well. When we looked for ourselves we could see no visable place in which she could urinate because she had been torn so badly. Thankfully she can urinate. She went immediately in for an emergency spay as the vet thought that another heat cycle may kill her. In spite of Ann's rotten luck in life she is maintaing a wonderful outlook. She is having the best time ever making new friends at HUA, both human and canine. She startles easily, as you can imagine, but wow is she becoming a happy, loving little girl. Her smile lights up the world. Ann is a female dachshund. She was born 4/14/03 and weighs 12.7 lbs.

Her Buddy, Karen Blaha, from Swansea, Illinois, sent her this message: "I am sorry people have treated you so terribly in your life. I hope me being your buddy will help with your medical care until you get a great loving home." Ann sends Karen many happy, grateful dachshund girl kisses.

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.
