be my buddy
Cairn Terrier Mix
Born: 07/23/2012
7 lbs

Wigzi was saved by a rescue group in Ohio. He needed a lot of time to conquer his fears. When he arrived at HUA, he was completely aloof and ran aimlessly and frantically around the fence perimeter of the yard to get away from people. He could not and would not make eye contact with us. After many months of socialization, Wigzi is a new dog. He absolutely loves visiting the sunroom for visits with people and treat snatching. He looks in our eyes now, although shyly. It is adorable. He will stop if one of us walks by so we will pick him up for a cuddle. He is curious and wanting to know all the workings of this fun place. Wigzi still has a way to go before he is completely tuned in, but he has made amazing progress and we cannot wait to hear how well he does once he is in his own home.

His Buddy, Julie Sillman, from Piqua, OH, sent him this message: "Hi Wigzi! You are such a beautiful boy and totally different than the day I met you! See, you may not remember, but after my friend was able to catch you, you rode in my car to rescue! I'm so thankful to HUA for helping you on your journey and giving you the turn-around we couldn't. Wigzi, prayers for a forever home very soon sweet baby!!!" Wigzi sends Julie many thanks for helping him, and sends her tiny, very joyful kisses and little hugs!
His Buddy, Katie Spyke, from East Lansing, MI, sent him this message: "Wigzi, you have beautiful eyes and a great smile. For any creature to overcome the adversity that you have already experienced in your short time on earth speaks directly to your wonderful soul. It is our hope and belief that you will soon be in your forever home enjoying all that life has to offer. We are thrilled that there is a place like HUA to love and care for you in the meantime…. Katie & Pat" Wigzi sends Katie and Pat many shy little kisses, lots of happy hugs and excited tail wags!

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.
