Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Ruskin is a true survivor. He was awaiting death at a pound in Kansas when we were lucky enough to save him. He was suffering from mange so badly that he had no fur at all. His skin was covered in sores and scales and was burning hot to the touch. We tried for a long time to even figure out what breed of dog he was! Well, meet Ruskin today. What a beauty! And he is just the happiest guy - actually always has been even when he was so very ill and in pain. Ruskin is super affectionate and in love with all people. He is so clever and has begun learning basic commands like "sit" and "stay." This is one very special dog who deserves an equally special family of his own.
Buddy Messages (1)
His Buddy, Martha Olivarez, from Omaha, Nebraska, sent him this message: "Hi Ruskin, you look very handsome in your new coat! I hope you get your forever home soon! If not we will come visit you in the summer when we get back in country from Iraq. Martye, Orlando, JaLisa and our litte Sadie send you hugs and kisses!" Ruskin sends Martha, Orlando, JaLisa and Sadie many happy, grateful kisses and hugs and says to drop by anytime, he loves company!

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.
