Timber came to us with 12 babies in tow. She was scheduled to be euthanized in a kill shelter and was transferred to us to save her and her crew.  Not only did she come in with babies but she was also heartworm positive and she underwent treatment in April for it and has recovered.  It has been a long haul for Timber here in the shelter.  She has been with us since March 2016.

She is a happy girl and we haven't found anyone that she doesn't like. She was very protective when her babies were little and in fact she did destroy a kitten when it wandered into the area she was at. Since weaning the babies we have not seen that protective nature but she is still not a fan at all of cats.

She is housebroken and will do fine with male dogs IF properly introduced.  She does great with kids. 

She deserves a home of her own to love her.  She is extremely well behaved.  She is spayed, current on her shots, has now tested negative for heartworm and she is micro-chipped.

Her adoption fee is only $100.00.  Our adoption application is on our website at and we encourage you to fill that out and then come and meet Timber.
