Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

Wow, what a beautiful boy! Whisty really has good looks galore. He was rescued from a South Dakota puppy mill, and the ugly truth behind his good looks is that he spent four years there breeding other great looking puppies while his health suffered. Whisty lost 19 teeth at his first vet visit. He feels so much better now that he can eat without extreme pain in his mouth. He is a little thin because it hurt him so badly to eat. Now that he is recovering he will likely gain an extra pound or two to be normal weight. Whisty is learning to trust us and is having fun running with his pals in the big yards at HUA. He is an adorable little fellow who will make a wonderful family member. He can't wait to leave the past entirely behind him and be happy, loved and adored in a home of his very own. The puppy mill was closing, so Whisty was lucky to make it out while he is still young.
Buddy Messages (1)
His Buddy, Catherine Torres, from San Diego, California, sent him this message: "Hey Buddy - so glad you are safe now. Can't wait to hear about your forever home when they find you." Whisty sends Catherine 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.
