be my buddy
Born: 08/01/2011

Turbo Jet somehow found himself at a local pound, but when his people were notified he was there, they flat out refused to get him out. They left him there, knowing that his probable fate would be an end to his life. Thankfully, the people at the pound saw something so special in him and contacted HUA to ask us to rescue him. We are so happy we did. Turbo is a riot. He is a feisty little bugger who cracks us up with his silly Chihuahua antics. He loves to play and prance about and becomes very attached to his caregivers. He insists on frequent belly rubs and room to zoom. He plays well with the other little dogs but would also be just fine as an only pet. Because of his Chihuahua-ness, Turbo takes a minute to warm up to new people and may not make the best first impression. It is actually quite entertaining to watch him size a person up, making sure it's a good one. Once his decision is made, though, he'a friend for life.

His Buddies, Jennifer and Snickey Olexo, from Lincoln, Nebraska, sent him this message: "Dear Turbo, You are such a spirited young fellow with amazing looks. We know someone will fall in love with those big silly ears and your lovely Chihuahua personality soon. Until then, we are happy to be your Buddies." Turbo sends Jennifer and his pal, HUA alum Snickey, many happy, grateful hugs and kisses.

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.
