Homeward Bound - Adopted!

Now living happily in Lincoln, Nebraska

Merry was rescued from the pound just around Christmas time. We knew right away this was a dog that nobody ever cared about. She had no self worth and nothing to be happy about. She was aloof and disinterested and depressed. She is such a regal, beautiful girl and it broke our hearts that her spirit was so shattered. We have worked steadily with Merry, trying desperately to break down the protective wall she has built around herself. She is making slow but steady progress, but still needs more convincing. Merry will come around. She needs time, attention and a sense of security, things she clearly never had in her life before HUA. We would love nothing more than to see a constant grin and a crazy tail wag from the lovely Miss Merry, and we know there is a special someone out there willing to love her into a happy, carefree, silly family dog.
Buddy Messages (2)
Her Buddy, Marcy McReynolds, from Florence, CO, sent her this message: "I'm not sure why, but black dogs just get a bad rap. You couldn't be in a better place to help you get your confidence back sweet girl. You just hang in there and some lucky person will take you home soon." Merry sends Marcy and her HUA alums many little kisses and lots of happy tail wags!
Her Buddy, Anastasia Barker, from Filley, NE, sent her this message: "Your story is amazing and I'm very glad that HUA took you in cause you only deserve the absolute best in life! Remember things can only get better for you from here on out Merry. Good luck on your journey with trusting. I believe in you!" Merry is starting to believe in herself, too, and sends Anastasia lots of grateful smiles!

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.
