Ember's beginnings were tragic. Her owners did not see fit to let her into their home. She was chained outside 24/7, and on the day she was rescued it was zero degrees. There was a doghouse on the property, but it was too small for Ember to fit into. Neighbors were horrified at this treatment, and finally were able to talk the owners into surrendering her. These neighbors were so kind that they drove Ember to HUA late in the night so she would not be forced to spend one more night out in the bitter cold on the end of a chain. Despite being treated like a piece of garbage by the family that was supposed to love her, Ember adores people. She is so grateful for the comforts at the shelter and is having an outright blast getting to know everybody. She is doing great with leash training and every new adventure puts a gigantic smile on her face. She is happy and silly and full of life. Ember has shown that she is selective about other dogs. Some she likes, some she does not. It will be important for her new family to meet her in person if she is to go to a home with another dog.

Her Buddies, Lorraine and Michael Birch, from Methuen, MA, sent her this message: "Ember, We're glad that you don't have to spend all your hours outside on a chain any more and we hope you get adopted very soon! We have a feeling such a sweet girl will be adopted in no time!" Ember sends Michael and Lorraine many happy kisses and grateful, playful hugs!

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.
