Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Petey Boy spent nine years in a South Dakota puppy mill. He came in with bronchitis and a severely infected mouth. After a couple of visits to the vet he is in great shape and so happy to feel good. He is quite a fun little character. He loves his caregivers and thinks that rolling around in soft blankets is heavenly. Petey heard that older dogs don't get adopted as often as the young whipper snappers but he isn't discouraged. He knows that with his personality, charm, good looks and power of positive thinking it will happen for him. We tell him every day that he is irresistible and it is so true! He is a lover who has much lost time to make up for, and we are all hoping that he will find a special family to take him for walks in the park, rides in the car, trips to the dog treat store and rub his tummy until he falls happily to sleep every night.
Buddy Messages (1)
His Buddy, Lola McKnight, from Norwalk, Iowa, sent him this message: "I am so happy to be your buddy and I hope you a get a forever home soon." Petey sends Lola 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.
