Homeward Bound - Adopted!!

Beau was rescued from a puppy mill where his life must have been literal torture. He is completely horrifed by human beings. When we took him out of the van on the day he arrived tears streamed down his face as he was picked up and held. He shook like a leaf and the look in his eyes told that he thought he was going to be seriously harmed. For the first several weeks at HUA he would spontaneously defacate when touched. Our biggest progress with Beau is that he no longer does this when touched by his daily caregiver. It's our sign that although he certainly doesn't adore humans just yet, he is no longer in a complete physical terror panic around those he knows well. Beau still huddles in a corner and observes all that goes on very carefully. Like so many mill dogs we've cared for we think it will just take time for Beau to really believe that things can be good for him. It could take many, many months to reach him and he will likely always carry his emotional scars. We are here for this precious little soul no matter what and are dedicated to healing his shattered spirit. Beau is a male Chihuahua. He was born in 2006 and weighs 9 pounds.

His Buddy, Rebecca Schreiner, from Lincoln, Nebraska, sent him this message: "Beau, your beautiful eyes caught my attention--I was instantly reminded of my grandfather's dog. When I saw that you share that dog's name as well as his eyes, I knew you had to be my buddy. I'm happy you're receiving so much care and love from your friends at HUA." Beau sends Rebecca many sweet, grateful Chihuahua boy kisses and 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.
