found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
This poor girl! She was hit by or run over by a car when she was very young. Nothing was done at the time to repair the damage to her pelvis and legs, so they healed on their own. Thinking about that is enough to bring tears to your eyes, isn’t it?
Hattie was brought into a shelter as a stray when she was about 8 months old. They had her for about 4 months before C.A.R.E.S. rescued her on 4/16/05. The shelter she was at didn’t even notice that her hips looked funny or that she hopped when she ran! That, too, brings tears to my eyes! We had her for less than 5 minutes, and we knew something wasn’t right.
Hattie has had X-rays of her hips and they were looked at by a surgeon to see if there was anything to do for her. They said that nothing should be done. She is in no pain, everything has long since healed and her quality of life would not be improved by any type of surgery. So, Hattie is okay and won’t need any special care because of her accident. She will develop arthritis at the same rate as any other dog of her size. Her hips just look a little cockeyed!
Hattie is very playful and gets along with other dogs and cats. The retriever in her makes her always want to have something in her mouth. She’s just so cute! Given her personality, I’m sure she’d be great with children, too.
We were told Hattie was housebroken, but she is not 100% reliable, but should be easy to train. She is cratetrained.
Hattie has started her Obedience training. She is just so excited to be with new people and dogs, it is hard to keep her focused. But she’s coming along.
Can you give this sweet girl the home that she deserves? She has been through too much in her short life and deserves to be absolutely spoiled rotten!!
This dog's adoption fee is $265 (plus tax).

The first step in our adoption process is to fill out an application. If you'd like to have an application emailed to you, just let us know. If you have questions about the dog, please call C.A.R.E.S. after 6:00 p.m. or email us. Sorry, but C.A.R.E.S. will NOT return long distance phone calls--our money is better spent on dog food............Thank you!
