Jima (pronounced Gemma) is a sweet young thing who came to us from a hoarding situation. This girl isn't as well-socialized with people as she could be, but we are working with her every day to learn to trust people. She can be quite frightened with new situations, and we will require another dog in the household to help her build her confidence.

We are working on Jima with leash training, as she has had zero experience with walking on one before coming to our rescue. Another dog in the home will also help with this, as she will follow them anywhere. Because of this, Jima will also require a physical fence in her home to avoid doggy adventures.

If you're willing to give this girl a chance, she won't let you down! Jima is looking for forever and truly is one of the sweetest dogs in our shelter. She deserves a forever home!

About AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport, Inc. is a 501(c)3, non-profit animal welfare organization based in Adel, Iowa. In addition to caring for our local strays, we are working to bridge the gap between traditional animal shelters and no-kill rescues in 2 different ways: 1) By providing free transportation for dogs and cats from traditional shelters to no-kill rescues all over the Midwest and Canada. We also provide overnight rest stops for our furry travelers and temporary housing for those whose time has run out at the shelters, but have to wait for a foster spot to open up in one of the rescues; 2) By pulling as many dogs out of traditional shelters that are on death row and placing them in foster homes and forever homes thru our organization.
