ADOPTED! Violet This cute little couple came to HITTGV in April. They were found together and their special bond makes us believe that they are mother and daughter. Penny (red, of course!) is thought to be mom. Both are happy, playful, and full of love for people.
ADOPTED! Penny: Penny is about 2 years old and weighs 30 lbs. She is a very happy and loving girl, very submissive, and at first she is very shy. Once she realizes she is safe, she will come out of her shell and become very playful. Penny has a lot of personality and is extremely smart. She craves human companionship and affection. All she wants to do is crawl into someone's lap, gaze into their eyes, and give kisses. She will beg for attention by rolling on the ground in front of you, to submissively ask for petting and your approval.
ADOPTED! Sunny was rescued from the same shelter as our Jackson. We cannot believe this dog was found as a stray and never claimed. He is a handsome, wonderful little guy, and a typical busy cattle dog. We have had Sunny for only a few days, but can say he is very good with other dogs and people. He is happy, energetic, playful, likes toys and to retrieve sticks. In short, Sunny is a great dog, and still very much a puppy in personality. He walks fairly well on leash. Sunny has the classic cattle dog trait of wanting to bond very closely with someone and velcro himself to that person. Except for the fact that Sunny has his gorgeous tail and Jackson has none at all, we would have thought the two were litter mates! Sunny is also about 10 months, with a personality and temperament very similar to Jackson's. We put the two together and they had an instant bond, playing and interacting as if they were brothers. We will add information as we learn more about him from his foster.
ADOPTED! OLLIE is sweet as can be for the little attention she received for most of her life. The vet estimates her to be about 10 years old. Ollie is very people focused, wants to please, is very responsive and is very trainable. Ollie gets along very well with other friendly, playful dogs. If adopted into a home with a dominant dog, they may have a tussle over who will be top dog. Ollie was raised around children, and was living in a house surrounded by cats.
Ollie was rescued when her owner, who was a hoarder, died. We were told that for several years, the neighborhood watched the neglect of this dog and attempted to persuade Ollie's owner to give her up. She was kept in a cage all the time, with occasional walks.
Ollie's foster person decided to foster her when he heard that she was going to be collected by Animal Control. We are seeking a permanent, loving home for Ollie, where she can begin to live and rediscover the world.
Ollie has been spayed and up to date on all her vaccinations. She is currently being treated for a tick borne disease (NOT Lyme's), but otherwise the vet said she is in great shape and very healthy.
