Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Kearney, Nebraska.

Quesadilla spent her young life in a puppy mill in Misssouri so full of stench and filth that even those of us experienced in rescue were overwhelmed by the condiditons. At not quite two years of age, this tiny dog was almost comatose with fear. We thought right away that this may be one of those severe cases that just about break our hearts. Quesadilla was so frightened that we thought maybe she'd never be able to recover. We could not get near her. She hovered at the very back of her pen, either shivering with fright or stiff with it. Slowly, very slowly, we began the rehabilitation process with her, speaking soothingly for hours on end. Reaching in to touch her very softly, all the while assuring her how good she is and how pretty she is. Quesadilla, unbelievably, started to show signs of trust. Her ears perked up when we approached her. Her head tilted this way and that so she could hear our words better. She began to maintain eye contact. We were thrilled to pieces. We knew we were reaching this little beauty and we knew happiness was just around the corner. Today, Quesadilla is bright little star. She will never be a happy-go-lucky girl - she remembers too much. But she loves us and we love her and we think her progress is nothing short of a miracle.
Buddy Messages (1)
Her Buddy, Maureen Harvey, from Lincoln, Nebraska, sent her this message: "Quesadilla, You are so beautiful and sweet, it is impossible to understand how anyone could be anything but kind to you. Our little Joelle had your frightened look when she left HUA to come live with us but now she knows there are some humans who can be trusted after all. We pray you will soon find the special home you so very much deserve. Mo & Jim and Joelle" Quesadilla sends Mo, Jim and Joelle 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.
