Miniature Schnauzer

Homeward bound-adopted!
Now living happily in Marion, AR.

Rudee, though just a puppy, arrived at HUA from a mill in Nebraska terrified and not puppy-ish at all. He was stiff as a board when we picked him up. Soothing words and gentle touches made him cringe. Gradually, he has learned that he is in a good, safe place with people who love him and he has decided that life must be OK after all. He loves to romp with the other pups and is having quite a nice time soaking up all the quiet praise he gets for his bravery. Rudee is another example of the damage puppy mills do the psyche of even the very young. We are so grateful to have gotten him out of that horrendous place before the damage could become permanent. Rudee has a chance now for a long, happy life and he will be forever grateful for his new home and his new family.
Buddy Messages (1)
His Buddy, Crista Shirley, from Gulf Breeze, Florida, sent him this message: "Sweet little Rudee I just know you will find your home very soon. I'm glad you are safe now and learning to enjoy life. You remind me so much of my little guy when he was a youngster. XOXOXOXOXOX!" Rudee sends Crista many happy, grateful Schnauzer boy kisses and hugs.

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.
