PLEASE NOTE: WHITNEY IS IN THE EUREKA AREA. Please do NOT contact Bones Pet Rescue in Covelo. See contact information below.

WHITNEY is a dog with a sad story to tell. But, she is a trooper and has picked herself up by her €˜bootstraps€™ and is ready for her new life in a loving home where she gets lots of attention and loving care.

Whitney is being fostered in the Eureka area, thanks to the kindness and generosity of a person who has a big, soft heart, who, when he heard of Whitney€™s situation, was eager to give her a hand.

Until early February 2013, this lovely German Shepherd mix girl, who is about 10 years old, lived with her human mom and another dog in the Sacramento area. Her human mom was not in good health for the last few years but she did the best she could for herself and her two pooches. One recent day, when she thought she€™d had enough pain and suffering, she took her own life. She and her 2 dogs were discovered a few days later. The other dog was so frail that it was felt best to put her to sleep. Whitney, who was dehydrated, hungry and lonely, seemed like she had what it took to come out of this on top.

Friends of the deceased woman began to try to find a good new home or foster situation for Whitney and through the internet, the person in Eureka who now has her, said he take her. Another kind, concerned person drove Whitney here and she has been in her new foster home just a week (as of Feb 10).

Whitney is settling in and is showing that she€™s playful, devoted to her humans, loving, gentle, affectionate and gets along with the other 2 dogs and the cats in the foster home.

She has been seen by a vet and, except for needing pain/anti-inflammatory meds for her arthritic joint, she is in excellent health. She is up to date on vaccinations, is house-trained, has a lovely, thick black and tan coat, is spayed and ready to give a new family or person all of her love and devotion. She weighs somewhere around 65 pounds and is in the process of losing a tad of weight.

Whitney likes to go on short walks, loves belly rubs and likes to play with water coming from the garden hose. She gets along with dogs she meets when she€™s out on walks. After a couple of weeks in her new foster home, Whitney is really coming out of her shell. Her fostere says she's a delightful roommate!

If you €™re looking for a very nice, gentle companion, who is a delight to have around, please call Jean at 707-839-3148 or send email to

Whitney will need on-going meds for pain and inflammation and there is an adoption fee, along with required reference checks and a home visit.

Whoever adopts her will never be sorry; she is such a lovely lady!
