Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Blair, Nebraska.

Hester and Halona were rescued from a particularly nasty puppy in Nebraska. Shelties from mills often come in with their spirits so crushed that we wonder if they'll ever recover. They are wise and sensitive and very easily lose hope when they are neglected or abused. When she first arrived, we thought Halona may be one of these dogs and we prepared ourselves for a long and difficult road to rehabilitation. Halona, however, had other ideas and after the initial shock of finding herself in a brand new place, she has come around nicely. She is gentle, sweet and non-aggressive. She gets along well with her room-mates and takes their lead when it comes to interacting with people. She is still a little shy and may always be that way. It's her nature. But she is also starting to love and let herself be loved. She is an incredibly beautiful girl with a heart the size of the moon.

Her Buddy, Robert Bertz, from Madison, Connecticut, sent her this message: "Halona, you are a very beautiful, gentle girl and I hope you find a great home very soon." Halona sends Robert 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.
