Meet our Meesha! This beautiful girl has been waiting for a home for almost 2 years! Meesha is now about 2 years old. She was originally adopted from us as a puppy and then returned. She is a black lab mix and only about 40 pounds. Meesha will need a home without young children as she had a poor start in life and is frightened easily. Meesha also has poorly developed hips and was seen by our specialist but at this time is currently only on supplements and is doing well. But don't think this slows her down - she is energetic and would like someone who is also active as she loves walk!. Meesha rides well in the car. Meesha has made quite a bit of progress since coming back to us and has gained a lot of confidence. Meesha is very loving and will continue to grow emotionally, and benefit from a family with quiet authority. Meesha is a shy girl, but warms up and loves attention once she knows you. She loves her treats and time outdoors, and is crate trained. Meesha also likes a car ride and is doing well in public. She would do best with a dog that is not rough and tumble as her hips are not good but would love a home as an only dog. We will be be sponsoring a private training session with our behaviorist to continue her development and growth. If you are interested in meeting this special girl, please complete an application at our website, www.helporphanpuppies.org. Please note out adoption requirements and feel free to contact us with any questions. Thank you.
Please note: All of our dogs are fostered locally a minimum of 2 weeks. Adopting a dog that has been fostered locally is a very important consideration. Animals that are fostered locally in private homes allow the fosters to learn more about the dogs personality and allows for making the best match possible. Also, animals that are transported into our area and placed directly often carry diseases, including parvo and distemper. Animals can also become ill on transports to the northeast, as they are exposed to other animals in route. If you have any questions regarding these diseases and the risks of not adopting locally, please contact your vet.
Also consider any group that does not require a home visit. If they are not conducting a home visit consider if they are vested in where their animals go. As an organization, we invest a significant amount of time into all of our dogs, including crate training, house breaking, obedience training, and determining each dog's personality to consider making the best match possible.
Please note we are required to identify a breed/breeds to post a dog. We do our best to determine a puppy's breed but without both parents present, we are unable to guarantee a puppy's breed.
