Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in New York.

Barkley is a beautiful boy who was rescued from a South Dakota puppy mill. It wasn't the worst of mills but he is still a little bit shy, just trying to make sense of his new big world. He lost 10 teeth at his first vet visit. He thinks the snuggly blankets at HUA are divine and the soft food with whole peas and carrots is a delight for him. He is warming up to people he knows but approaches new people with caution, not quite entirely sure they will be nice to him. We think he will blossom soon and forget his past completely. Barkley would love a quiet home with gentle people to help him relax and come out of his shell.

His Buddy, Cheryl Whote, from Omaha, Nebraska, sent him this message: "You are so adorable. I know you will find a loving home soon. Lots of cuddles and kisses." Barkley sends Cheryl many happy, grateful hugs and 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.
