Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Nebraska.

Siku's story has broken many hearts at HUA. At the time of his arrival in December 2008, his nearly six years in a horrible Nebraska puppy mill had so completely destroyed his will to live that he had lost his will to walk. We'd take him out to a play yard, and he would just sit down, never losing that look of terrible sadness and hurt in his eyes. We soon found friends for him, and he is learning how to enjoy life! When he took his first steps of exploration, following Roosevelt around a play yard, it was a miracle to us, and we watched with tears in our eyes. He is now rooming with his two best Eskie friends, Roosevelt and Kennedy, and Siku's kisses, tail wags, and a new look in his eyes tell us that he is now a much happier boy. Now when we go out to the play yard, he will dig, run with his friends, explore; he has even chased a rabbit! And oh, does he love tummy rubs! In October 2010, Siku's debut lunchtime visit to the sunroom was a smashing success. Although a little nervous at first, he was a perfect gentleman to all the other dogs, he happily accepted his first table food from anybody who offered it, and he basked in all the petting and attention he was receiving, looking around with the cutest grin! We hope that this beautiful American Eskimo will find a special adopter who will give him the unconditional love and patience he needs to forget his hurts and finish blossoming. We think he is well on his way!

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.
