Lester and his brother, Luverne, were rescued from a severe hoarding situation. Because there were so many animals involved, neither boy was properly socialized and they were nearly feral when they arrived at HUA. They were both terrified and wanted nothing to do with getting to know us, let alone being touched or loved. Because we understand this behavior and know it all too well, we were able to win the boys over in a fairly short period of time and now they are two of the silliest little guys on campus. Lester flashes huge toothy grins when he gets excited which causes much praise and laughter. He is a tiny bit slow to warm up still, but once he does you are friends for life. He loves playing with his brother and the other little dogs. We're pretty sure Lester has some cute tricks up his sleeve and expect to see him breaking out some major Chihuahua dance moves any day now.
Buddy Messages (1)
His Buddy, Steve Elbert, from West Des Moines, IA, sent him this message: "Lester, I hope that you continue to learn that there are many more humans out there that love and cherish their four legged friends. I hope you find a forever family that will treat you as the most special little man. Until that time, this buddy sends you hugs and kisses." Lester loved the hugs and kisses and happily sends Steve joyful kisses and hugs in return!

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.
