Now living happily in Omaha, NE

If you're unclear as to the impact of a dog being raised in a puppy mill, come meet Simon Girty. Sadly, he is a classic example of an animal who has been terrorized by the human hand, malnourished, abused, and left to rot in his own filth once he became unable or unwilling to continue breeding. Simon's spirit has been shattered. His faith in humans is nonexistent. He cowers when we approach and hates being touched. Those who know Poms know that this is extremely uncharacteristic of the normally confident, happy, loving breed and it is truly painful to witness. However, Simon does have a very happy time with the other small dogs, and is learning not to be so frightened of every little thing. We are careful to give him his space, but speak constantly to him and sometimes attempt a snuggle so that he learns that people can be kind and gentle. We don't know to what extent Simon will come around but we do know that a family who will support him and love him without condition is what he needs. He may eventually become a bouncy, silly Pom or he may always be skittish around people. Whatever the case, no dog has ever deserved the safety, warmth and comfort of his own home more than our precious Simon Girty.

His Buddies, Mona Rae Douty and her furkids, CoCo and Brini, from Monroeville, PA, sent him this message: "We know that you have one buddy, but so many HUA Pommies have found homes, we decided to help support your care. Our 15-year-old Andy is also a black Pom and says "HI" as do CoCo and our little Sister Dog, Brini. Here's to you Simon Girty, we pray you will soon find your forever home!" Simon sends happy puppy kisses and little grateful tail wags to the entire Douty Family!
His Buddies, Maurine Roller and furkids Taz and Bella, from Alliance, NE, sent him this message: "Simon, you have no idea how fortunate you are to be at HUA. It won't be long and you'll begin to understand that life is good and there is a forever family out there who will cherish you and you will cherish them. Blessings, hugs and smooches, Maurine, Taz and Bella." Simon sends happy tail wags to Taz and Bella, and thinks that, maybe some day soon, he'll also send happy kisses to Maurine.

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.
