Cindy Lou

be my buddy
Born: 02/01/2007
30 lbs

Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Bennington, Nebraska.

You could tell Cindy Lou's story by looking at her photos. She was with a woman who loved her but the woman's boyfriend beat Cindy Lou. The woman took her to the pound in Oklahoma because she said that she was afraid he would beat Cindy Lou to death. Just imagine the horror of her life as a puppy. She was rescued from the pound by the Pryor Animal League. They drove her to HUA because the foster homes could not handle her needs. She has been at HUA for six months and is only now learning to trust. She will play a little and will take food from people now. Every little thing scares her. She will continue to make progress with love. She needs a very special home. Cindy Lou is a beagle. She was born on 2/1/2007 and weighs about 30 pounds.

UPDATE: Cindy Lou has developed glaucoma and had to have one eye removed. She has daily drops for the other eye. She came through her surgery very well and the doctor is hopeful that vision loss can be prevented in her remaining eye.

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.
