Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

Inky Do is such a happy, curious little girl. She was rescued from a South Dakota puppy mill. She lost 11 teeth at her first vet visit and she feels so much better now. Inky has such big expressions and loves to check out her new surroundings. She wags her tail with delight at her freedom and comfort at the shelter. She still can't quite bring herself to come all the way up to humans for affection, but she wants to. She is working on it. She sees the other dogs receiving love and attention and thinks it looks great but she just can't muster the courage yet to think that people would for sure be nice to her. She really wants to believe it's true though. Perhaps your family might be right for Inky Do. Maybe you will be the special one to bring her around and teach her that good things are meant for her too and help her forget her past as a breeding machine at the puppy mill. We know that Inky is close to forgetting the worst and letting herself go to trust completely that her life will be fabulous from now on. She is such a lovable little character that we don't think it will take long for her to make amazing progress to become completely carefree.

Her Buddy, Donna Berggren, from Charlestown, Indiana, sent her this message: "I know you will be loved and well taken care of at HUA until your forever family finds you." Inky sends Donna 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.
