Homeward Bound - Adopted!

Now living happily in Hudson, Wisconsin

This precious little guy came from a horrible breeding facility in southern Nebraska. Dogs from that place come to us filthy and shell-shocked. They have no idea what a loving touch feels like or what good food tastes like. It is disgusting what hell Hilmar has been through and we were not entirely certain that he was ever going to fully recover from that awful phase of his life. In order to fully socialize him, we were diligent in making sure he was with humans all day long and Hilmar has absolutely thrived on the attention. He is now a friendly little chap who is learning to prance and play and loves human contact. We discovered that fun noises will cause Hilmar to tilt his head so far to and fro that it looks like he is about to find himself upside down. His photo session included lots of whistling just so we could capture that adorable expression. Hilmar deserves nothing but the best of homes. He has been through enough pain and loneliness. We have seen him go from a fragile, broken spirit to a happy, trusting, silly little Pom and we are so very proud of him.
Buddy Messages (2)
His Buddy, Patti Stephens, from Dallas, TX, sent him this message: "Sweet Hilmar, HUA alum Mortimer insisted that we choose a pomeranian as our buddy, so we have chosen you because you are so adorable! We know you'll find your forever home soon." Hilmar sends Patti many joyful hugs and sends Mortimer lots of puppy kisses!
His Buddy, Stacie Gengler, from Omaha, NE, sent him this message: "Hilmar I am a big sucker for the head tilt. Your story is similar to my Margo's story which is how I know without a doubt you will make someone a very lucky and much loved human when you find your forever home." Hilmar sends Stacie many grateful hugs, lots of happy head tilts and little 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.
