Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Waterloo, Iowa.

Phoebe was rescued from one of the worst puppy mills we have ever seen. The hundreds of dogs to come out of that awful place have been sick, scared and scarred. Phoebe does not at all like the memories of her former life and she has struggled to understand that not all people are mean and bad. Her progress has been slow, but we are so proud that she has even bothered to try to trust us. Phoebe went from wild spinning to shyly approaching us for affection. She now lets us hold her and comfort her as long as we are gentle. Looking into her eyes, we can see the love beginning to form and we know she longs to be free of her past. We are sure that our Phoebe will thrive in a home and we want nothing more than the lap of luxury for her.

Her Buddy Stacie Gengler, from Omaha, Nebraska, sent her this message: "Dear Pheobe you remind me of a great friend I had as a kid. I am honored to help while you are looking for a loving home of your own. Best wishes sweetheart!" Phoebe sends Stacie 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.
