Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Seattle, Washington.

Tamsin is a dear little boy who is trying to be brave in spite of the fact that the world scares him after being confined in a wretched puppy mill. He lived for years in a barn with scores of other dogs stacked in cages. There was no light, not even a window, and the stench was overwhelming. He was one of the only Dachshunds there and the puppy miller noted that she did not like Dachshunds. Tamsin can often be found hiding under his bed. He flips it over so that we don't see him at all. UPDATE: He has had extensive blood work done. Nothing has turned up of concern on his tests and he is putting on weight now. He might just be prematurely a little thin in the fur department. Lately he has had more bursts of energy and become more social. He has taken to running around the central care area and jumping into the laps of people he knows, tail wagging and looking for love. Quite a big turnabout for our formerly shy little guy!
Buddy Messages (1)
His Buddy, Kate Walker, from Lake View, Alabama, sent him this message: "What a beautiful boy you are! We wish you could join our doxie family. Enjoy your freedom and love at HUA until your perfect forever family finds you! Love, Peanut and Pepper" Tamsin sends Kate, Peanut and Pepper many happy, grateful Dachshund 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.
