Heidi's is so young to have her heart broken already, but that's just what happened. Her first family brought her to an Emergency vet clinic one weekend when she wasn't feeling well and left her there for treatment . . . but never returned to pick her up. She remained at the clinic for about 2 weeks waiting, taken under the wing of the entire vet staff who fell in love with such a gentle soul. At the end of the 2 weeks, usually unwanted black dogs are killed right away, but Heidi is so sweet we have to believe there is a home for her somewhere. Heidi is now being fostered in a wonderful, loving family with a foster mom and dad who are rebuilding her confidence, and a bunch of dogs who she loves playing with. She can be a little shy at first, but give her just a few minutes to get her bearings and she is all about having a great time with everyone. She's got plenty of puppy energy and excitement, and she's smart enough to do very well at obedience training. We're not sure what her mix is, but one of her parents must have been a water dog -- just watch her video!!! Heidi is about 9 - 10 months old which means she's nearly full grown at just about 35 pounds, and she's a very healthy girl. If you can open your heart and promise Heidi a home forever, please visit www.pinkshelter.org for more information about the adoption process or click here for our online application. Full vetting and spay included in her $375 adoption fee. Transport fee is additional $140. IF YOU HAVE AOL or YAHOO PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPAM FILE FOR OUR RESPONSE

About Little Pink Shelter - CT Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Little Pink Shelter is a registered 501(c)3 charity. All donations are tax-deductible.

When I started The Little Pink Shelter back in 2008, my mission was to help shelter dogs win their fight for a second chance at life; as a breast cancer survivor, I knew all too well the sweetness of that victory. Since founding The Little Pink Shelter, I have placed over 2,700+ dogs and puppies into loving homes.

The Little Pink Shelter is considered more of a "boutique" rescue, focusing solely on making an adoption successful. Working closely with select shelters and rescues in Arkansas where the pet overpopulation continues to be out of control, my colleagues and I are careful to temperament test each dog so we can understand the type of home to which it will be best-suited.

Too many wonderful dogs are put down each week because of lack of space, lack of funding and a widespread disregard for spaying/neutering and responsible ownership. The plight of these dogs and the quest to find each one a loving home is what fuels us every day.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a facility in Connecticut, so you can only visit The Little Pink Shelter on the internet. Our dogs and puppies are usually fostered in the south and the overwhelming majority of them are adopted out before they arrive so they can go right home after transport and begin bonding with their new forever families! Check out the "Love Fests" Albums on our Facebook Fan Page!

We are always in search of short term foster homes up here in Connecticut and the surrounding states!!! If you're not ready for a full 15+ year commitment, or if you have always wanted to help in some way, please consider short-term fostering a dog or puppy for us! Write us for more info!

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the process is submitting an online application located through a link in each pet's description, or from our website at www.pinkshelter.org under the "How to Adopt" tab. Whenever possible we like to begin review with a vet reference. After that, we will be in touch to set up a lengthy phone interview where each of us has the opportunity to ask all our questions of the other. Home visits are at our discretion. Once approved, there is a contract and transport is arranged if necessary.
