Homeward Bound - Adopted! Now living happily in Lincoln, Nebraska

Edwina and her brother, Dominic, came from a home where the people could not care for them. Both were a filthy mess, and Edwina had been diagnosed with painful bladder stones. The poor girl was suffering greatly and we rushed her to the vet for treatment. Edwina felt a million times better after her surgery but she is on a special diet and probably will be for life. Like her darling brother, Edwina is unassuming, polite, and the sweetest of all creatures. She is quiet and patient with a bit of a silly side when she is feeling spunky. Nobody who meets her can resist her adorably squishy face, and she is kind enough to allow us all the kisses we need. Edwina and Dominic do not have to be adopted together as they both like the other little dogs and get along with everybody. What's most important to us is that they both get the wonderful, loving homes they've always deserved.

I wish I could bring you and Dominic to our home but I know you will find a family very soon. Bubba, Dixie, Tina and Skipper send you much love and kisses. The Pfluger's" Sweet Edwina sends Linda, Skipper, Tina, Dixie and Bubba LOTS of grateful kisses and very happy cuddles!

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.
