Now living happily in Overland Park, Kansas

Maurice came to us from a breeder in the midwest. At first he was very worried that humans would do something horrible to him, so he hid behind things thinking we could not see him. Gradually, Maurice's Havanese curiosity got the best of him, and he began to peer around corners to find out if everybody was acting happy. He learned that trips to the sunroom meant bites of delicious chicken and warm greetings. Maurice now sits on laps. This may not seem like a huge accomplishment, but for a dog that has been without love for so long, it is gigantic. He actually thinks laps are not bad at all. Maruice will thrive in his own home. He loves the company of his other small dog friends and as long as people are not loud and charging toward him, he is getting comfortable with being with us. He is a darling gentleman that deserves the best of all families, and we know now that he is ready to accept love, the thought of which once terrified him.
Buddy Messages (1)
His Buddy, Nan Scarborough, from Winfield, IL, sent him this message: "Dear Maurice, You are such a handsome guy! I would love to meet you in person. Since that is not possible right now, I am happy to be your buddy from a distance. I am sure someone will soon fall in love with you, as I have, and take you into their loving home. Best wishes, Maurice! Love, Nan" Maurice sends Nan many tiny kisses and big, 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.
