Chica is a young, spunky hound mix who is happiest when she's snuggling with her foster mom or playing with her four-legged foster sibling. She is about 40 pounds and won't get much bigger, so perfect for those that would like a medium sized dog! She is would be happiest in a home with another dog, and hasn't met a dog she doesn't like. She is learning fetch and can sometimes play fetch on her own as she gets so excited running, her mouth comes up and the ball pops out. She doesn't let it get too far before pouncing on it again! She is making fast progress with potty training and crate training but is still a young lady so will need a patient home with humans who will continue to teach her proper manners and basic obedience. If interested in Chica, please complete an online adoption application.

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.
