Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Omaha, Nebraska.

Cookie is a gorgeous, regal lady. When she runs she is elegance in motion. She loves people and gets along well with other dogs. She is curious but not hyper, enjoys attention from people but is content and confident by herself. Every once in awhile she lets her silly side get to her and takes a good roll in the grass while shooting us silly smiles. Her beautiful curly tail is in a constant state of happiness. She has good house manners and would love a home of her very own. Cookie was rescued from the Miami Dade shelter when it had to close due to a distemper outbreak. She and her pals were healthy, but had nowhere to go. HUA volunteers in Florida rescued them and brought them all the way to Nebraska. Please see the video below for the story of this amazing rescue including pictures of Cookie, Ping, and Stealth on their first play date in the agility yard at HUA. They are all so happy to be free and saved!

Buddy Messages (1)
Her Buddy, Riki Shaw, from Coconut Grove, Florida, sent her this message: "I'm looking for a home for you baby!" Cookie sends Riki many happy, grateful hugs and kisses. She thanks Riki for rescuing her and hopes to see her again.

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.
