Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Omaha, Nebraska.

Several years ago we rescued 51 Dachshunds from a puppy mill in Rockport, Missouri. It was truly one of the worst situations we have ever seen. The dogs were housed in run-down chicken coops with light bulbs hanging over the pens as a heat source. Many, many of the dogs were sick and some were pregnant. It was a rescue that we will never forget. The miller was left with 4 dogs that she refused to give up. Recently, she became ill and was forced to hand over the remaining four dogs to HUA. These little girls were in a little better shape as they lived inside the home. They were not feral, but one of them had been severely neglected: Paris. When she arrived, Paris had mammary tumors so huge that they almost touched the ground. She is complelely blind. She had probably never seen the vet, but was bred for years because of her dapple coat. Paris does not want your pity, however. She is the most capable, sweetest, bravest girl in the all the land. She gets around so well that sometimes we'd swear she could see like a hawk. She has no idea she is different other than being entirely fantastic. Her mammary tumors were removed and although her prognosis is good, her family will want to monitor her as recommended by the vet. Paris enjoys such hobbies as hugging, kissing and strolling through the meadows.

Her Buddy, Sheila Peterson, from Red Wing, Minnesota, sent her this message: "Pretty girl Paris! Good things are coming your way now! Someone is going to see what a courageous little sprite you are and give you a wonderful home. I wish it could be me." Paris sends Sheila 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.
