Homeward Bound - Adopted!

Now living happily in Seattle, WA

Santo was rescued from a particularly nasty puppy mill in South Dakota by another rescue group that often works in coordination with HUA. Our friends there brought the little angel to us, knowing we'd do everything we possibly could to give him the best life ever. Santo is a tiny bundle of joy. He is not a "typical" Chihuahua (NOT that we don't think "typical" Chihuahuas are fabulous!) - he is quite quiet and contemplative. He loves to explore with his friends and finds all other dogs just spectacular. A good scratch behind those enormous ears leaves him writhing in delight. Santo is a very special boy deserving of an equally special family.
Buddy Messages (2)
His Buddy, Mark Hendricks, from Omaha, NE, sent him this message: "Hi, Santo! I'm sending lots of hugs and ear scratches to tide you over until you find your new home!" Santo sends Mark many grateful hugs, smiles and little kisses!
His Buddy, Sandy T, from Otsego, Minnesota, sent him this message: "Hi Santo, you stole my heart, I want to be your buddy. We don't have our old gal anymore, we have a new baby named Mitzy Mae. I know she would love to meet you sometime. We hope you find a family of your own very soon dear Santo. Sandy T." Santo sends Sandy and Mitzy Mae 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.
