Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Arvada, CO!

We received an urgent plea for help one day from a Boston Terrier rescue group. When they went to a puppy mill to pick up some Bostons the miller had his gun out and was grabbing Millie by the scruff of the neck. When the rescuer asked what he intended to do he said he was going to shoot her right then and there. Apparently Millie decided that she was no longer going to take his abuse and had been biting him, and that was going to spell the end for her. The Boston Terrier rescuer implored him to please let her have Millie. Quite fortunately he agreed. She knew that HUA would take Millie and show her that life can be good. Millie must have suffered some very horrible abuse because when people approach the look in her eyes is pure fear. Due to many years of neglect and poor nutrition she lost 16 teeth at her first vet visit. Millie is one mill dog who has responded to her situation with anger and will still sometimes bite, however now it is all gums, and she backs down very fearful after having done it. Although the people haven't quite won her over yet Millie does love her new life at HUA. She enjoys her big space to live in with her good soft food and warm blankets. She loves her roommates and adores spending time with her Maltese friend Pansy. We will continue to try to reach Millie's broken heart and show her that people can be good and that she can know love in her life.

Her Buddy, Brenna Daraz, from Sherwood, Oregon, sent her this message: "Millie, you look just like our little Maltese, Ellie! Both so sweet and pretty. I wish I could scoop you in my arms and let you know just how much you are loved, that not all people are bad like the ones who hurt you. Merry Christmas, Millie! We love you! The Darazs Family xoxox" Millie sends the Daraz family many happy, grateful Maltese girl kisses and Merry Christmas wishes.
Her Buddy, Suzanne Emal, from Seward, Nebraska, sent her this message: "Dear sweet Millie, I hope you can soon learn that not all of us people are cruel like your former owner. Some of us would love to lavish you with hugs, kisses, treats and a good home. Thank goodness you made it to HUA and your new life." Millie sends Suzanne many happy, grateful 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.
