Italian Greyhound
Born: 01/01/2000
7 lbs

Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Par was found on a golf course in Wyoming along with Birdie. They were cold, afraid, hungry and alone. Local animal control rescued them and arranged for their transport to HUA where they could be nursed back to health. It is thought that perhaps a local puppy miller dumped these dogs once they were no longer useful. Par is a bit more fearful than Birdie. He hasn't come to trust the humans yet. There is no doubt this dog has seen some very, very dark days at the hands of humans. He is shy, but with the people he sees each and every day there is starting to be a spark of curiosity about him. He is still very reserved. He is grateful, but he just can't believe the good things in life are really for him. It will take a very gentle, quiet, patient home to bring him around and help him know that kindness and love can be his always and that he does not need to be afraid. Par is a male Italian Greyhound mix. He was born in 2000 and weighs 7 pounds. UPDATE: One of our volunteers has worked extensively with Par and he has now come around to be a confident, loving, happy boy! He loves to spend time with people and his tail wags non-stop.

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.
