Homeward Bound - Adopted!

Now living happily in Hastings, MN

Galena was turned over to HUA by a breeder in the Midwest. She was very frightened when she arrived, unsure of her new surroundings and all of the people and dogs wanting to get to know her. We have been working closely with this precious girl to help her gain the confidence she needs to trust that we are her friends. At times she can be very playful, almost as if she loses herself in the fun and forgets that she is afraid. She very much loves the other small dogs and takes cues from them as to how to feel in certain situations. Her favorite activity is to follow her caregiver, Rachel, all over the central care room to see what kind of delicious treats she may hand out. Galena is of a sensitive breed and will need a family who understands her needs and will commit to continuing her socialization. We know there is a happy little girl in there who deserves the best of all worlds.
Buddy Messages (1)
Her Buddy, Brenda Sock, from Norfolk, NE, sent her this message: "I have a dog that is as timid as you are! I would love to adopt you and give you a home, but I do not want her to feel like she is not wanted anymore:( I wish I knew if you two could become best pals.)" Galena sends Brenda and her furbaby many happy 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.
