be my buddy
Australian Shepherd

We can only imagine L'Oreal must have been through a lot of horror in her first year of life. Her circumstances in coming to us were terrible. At 2:00 a.m. during a storm a couple pulled up to the shelter and left L'Oreal in a rusty old crate in the parking lot. Not only did they leave her, they left a mother and 9 puppies in a dog food bag shoved under the HUA van, another dog tied with chain to a cinder block, and they turned a very large Labrador loose to run the property. Thank goodness the security system sounded so that the on-site caretakers could find these poor souls and tend to them right away. L'Oreal is a very dear girl, just precious and so well-behaved. She is not a fan of cats and it takes her awhile to warm up to certain strangers. A quiet home would be perfect for L'Oreal.

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.
