Ruff Ruff! My name is Alfalfa
|Breed:||Boston Terrier/Chihuahua Mix||Color:||Brindle - With White||Age:||Young|
|Size:||Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less||Sex:||Male|
I am already neutered, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.
Alfalfa was rescued from a horrific breeding situation in Iowa. Although he is just a puppy he is not yet happy go lucky. He has not known the kindness of humans. He has fought every day of his life just to exist. We are showing Alfalfa all the love and affection he never had and know that he will come around and learn how wonderful it is to be cared for and adored.
UPDATE: Progress with Alfalfa is slow. He must have been severly terrorized. He enjoys the company of the other dogs, but is still fearful of humans. It is so sad to see such fear in such a young boy. Our wish is for Alfalfa to find a quiet, loving, patient home who will bring him along so that his heart may know true peace and happiness.
Alfalfa is a male Boston Terrier/Chihuahua mix born in February of 2007.
Alfalfa would like you to visit him at his very own web page.

Help this Shelter by making a donation.
Hearts United for Animals is a national no-kill animal shelter, sanctuary and animal welfare organization dedicated to the relief of suffering. We rescue dogs from all over the country and specialize in long distance adoptions. We take the creatures who are lost, afraid, hungry or ill and comfort them, give them a warm, soft bed, good food, medical care and most of all, love.
HUA is a place of happiness, joy and love. Everything we do is in the best interest of the dogs. There are no cages. The dogs have big fields of grass and trees in which to run. Our primary interest is what will make them happy. HUA is a place to celebrate the joy of life.
All of our pets are available for viewing on the internet at www.hua.org. Come read their stories and see their individual pages.
The adoption fee for all dogs is $200.
We require an application (found on our website). We also require a home visit and vet reference check. Fenced yards are required for most dogs. Many of our dogs may not be good with children, or it may depend on the age of the children...please feel free to ask who we would consider good with young ones.
All dogs will come spayed/neutered, heartworm tested, current on vaccinations and heartworm prevention.
We put the welfare of the dogs before all else and are very careful with their placement. Many of our dogs are puppy mill survivors or have otherwise been physically or emotionally traumatized. Our goal is to find them the very best homes possible where they will be loved and adored family members, where they will be kept safe and receive no less than exceptional care for the rest of their lives.
