Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in New York.

Poor Hawkeye has had a tough life. This sweet young Pomeranian fellow was born in a puppy mill in Iowa. He was released by the breeder to a rescue group in Iowa, which should have been the start of a wonderful life. Unfortunately for Hawkeye he had an awful experience. He was adopted to a family who had a large dog. The large dog attacked him, severely injuring his leg. The family then took him to a humane society where his leg was bandaged but nothing else was done. The leg became extremely infected. HUA was contacted to take him and told that his leg was so bad that it would need to be amputated. When Hawkeye arrived in our care our vet was shocked at what he found under the bandage. It was awful, but with a new laser therapy and IV antibiotics the vet refused to give up, knowing that with proper care the leg will heal. Hawkeye's wound was cleaned, he was given pain medication and was taken daily for a week for laser treatments at Backlund Animal Hospital in Omaha where they have state of the art equipment and cutting edge treatment options. Hawkeye should be as good as new within a few more weeks. He is in GREAT spirits. He loves all the care and attention that is lavished on him. He is such a sweet, adorable, fun little fellow who in spite of all of his trauma still adores people and other dogs. Hawkeye is now healed enough that he is ready to find a wonderful new home where he will be treated like a little prince, never to suffer again. Please help Hawkeye find that special home. Send his page link to your friends and family. He would love to be in a home of his own soon.

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.
