Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Omaha, Nebraska.

Tess is a beautiful, sleek, graceful, darling, tiny girl with the spirit of angel. Her heart was broken when her elderly owner had to surrender her to the shelter, and at first we thought she'd be slow to recover. But Tess surprised us all by giving herself enough time to heal, but not allowing herself to wallow in self pity. Soon she was zooming about the place like she was on the vacation of a lifetime. She is so busy checking out all of the great things around here and she can just not get enough of these awesome people. Tess never met a stranger - she greets everyone with contagious enthusiasm and will land in a lap without warning. She loves to fold herself up in our arms and is an absolutely supreme cuddle bug. Like most IG's, Tess is kind and sweet to children and enjoys their company. Because of her slim build and fragile bones, however, children in her home should be older than toddler age and gentle by nature.
Buddy Messages (1)
Her Buddy, Dweezel, from Edmonds, WA, sent her this message: "Hi Tess, My name is Dweezel Dachshund and I wanted to be your buddy because I love your long legs. My mom and I would love to be your buddy until some lucky family is adopted by you. Licks from me and hugs and kisses from my mom, Carolyne!" Tess sends Dweezel many grateful little licks in return, and sends Carolyne lots of cuddles and very happy 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.
