Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Lincoln, Nebraska.

You'd never be able to tell from her lovely photos, but Loena was near death when she was rescued. She came from a puppy mill that housed some of the worst medical cases we have ever seen. Loena and her friends, most of them seniors, were in deplorable condition and broke our hearts. This lively little girl had an infected mouth, cataracts in both eyes, an enlarged heart and a hernia. Worse even, she had a one inch tear in her abdominal wall - her insides (about the size of an orange) were literally hanging out of her. Loena has a unshakeable spirit though, and she patiently endured each procedure she needed to undergo just to stay alive. She is now as healthy as we could get her. She is incredibly friendly and still has a lot of play left in her. Loena loves her people so much, she crawls and slithers on her tiny belly to get to us. She knows how cute she is and she likes to be a bit of a show-off. We can only pray that there is a special, dedicated family who would be willing to provide Loena with the one and only home she will ever know. If any dog deserves major spoiling, it's Loena.
