If Heartland had a yearbook Blade would definitely win Best Smile! Blade has this unique habit of showing all his teeth to show he's happy and he can even do it with the command 'Smile'! Some might mistake this for a sign of aggression but some dogs do smile, and Blade is one of them! It's the cutest thing ever. Blade is approximately 7 years old and weighs right around 40 pounds. Blade came to Heartland all the way from Miami and he certainly had a tough life before we got him. Blade has scars on his side and stomach, and he also does not like to be touched around the neck or back end if he does not know you. Blade does not like most other dogs and will attempt to pull towards them on walks, but with his new harness on he is very responsive to his walker's direction. Other than that Blade is very well leash-trained, and knows his commands well. He's very treat motivated which makes him even easier to train! When Blade accepts you into his heart all he wants is to smile for you, give kisses, and try to sit on your lap. Because Blade has been mistreated in the past, he needs an owner who will understand his issues and give him time to adjust. Please open your heart to this deserving dog.
 


About Heartland Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

Heartland Animal Shelter is a no-kill humane 501 c 3 organization dedicated to finding homeless pets forever homes while educating the public on the importance of spaying and neutering their pets in order to help with the pet overpopulation problem.

Dr. Herbert Preiser, DVM and founder of Heartland Animal Shelter wanted to make a difference by saving the lives of pets who might otherwise be euthanized because of the over-population of unwanted pets. Dr. Preiser opened Heartland Animal Shelter in October of 2002.

Heartland's vision is to eliminate euthanasia to any adoptable animal. Heartland asks for your support by spreading the word about the importance of why pets should be spayed or neutered in order to prevent overpopulation of cats and dogs. Together we can make a difference!
