Hi, I'm Luna! Thank you for stopping by, I hoped you would, and I hope you are here to help me find my forever home? I have been waiting for such a long time.

My previous home had people who scared me and did not treat me well. Fortunately, I was eventually taken to a rescue who vowed to care for me until I found my perfect home. So here I am waiting for that special person to come for me.

I have been hoping my future will be much kinder to me and I can find the home I so deserve and although I am being fostered at a rescue, I still am such a happy little girl. I love to sit on the laps of those I trust and give kisses, many, many kisses. I do great on my leash but occasionally walk by a dog that really scares me and I react in an unladylike manner. For that reason it is best that I be an only dog in my new home. I am getting better with my fear though because I've come to realize that not every human or dog will hurt me. I am hoping that my new home has no other animals; a home where everyone will love me and is willing to be patient as I adjust to my new surroundings.

I love almost everyone I meet but I am very apprehensive meeting people for the first time. You see, I am still not sure that I am not going to be hurt again so it takes me a little time to understand and trust you. It only takes a few sniffs to know though that you are there to love me, not hurt me. You know what they say "You're nobody until you've been sniffed by a dog."

Could you find it in your heart to give me that second chance? I would really love to be home again where I can find forever love, peace and contentment. Please e-mail me at kcponte@sbcglobal.net. I would love to meet you.

Hugs and kisses, love Luna

Basic Adoption Requirements:

Adopter must be 18 years of age or older.

For the safety and health of our animals, we do not ship pets.

Pet adoption fees range from $45 to $250. Our adoption fees help to offset the cost of evaluation, housing, feeding and medical care for the thousands of animals needing our help. We do our best to keep our adoption prices reasonable while generating income to support our goal of caring for animals available for adoption until we can place them in a loving home. The adoption fee for each animal varies and is dependent on many factors including: age, size, behavior, medical condition, and public demand.
