Freckles is one of several dogs that will most likely live the remainder of her life at the sanctuary. Found with a mangled front leg, she was taken in and given medical treatment by another local rescuer. After recovering from having her leg amputated, it became clear she did not want human interaction. She lived several months in a private home and while she interacted with the other dogs, she would not accept people. Hallie Hill provides Freckles with daily meals, her monthly heart worm and flea prevention, a canine companion and the daily offer of human friendship.
Harriet is a fabulous dog and a favorite of many volunteers! She loves for people to rub her belly and give her loving attention. She would sit with you for hours to enjoy a movie or a book. She is considered special needs for a few reasons. First, she’s a mature lady at more than eight years old. Secondly, she doesn’t do well with other dogs. Lastly, Harriet was hit by a car and suffered a severely broken pelvis that started to heal before arriving to Hallie Hill. The trauma caused some damage to the nerves in her left hind leg. Because she doesn’t have much feeling in the leg and paw, she uses it improperly and walking on it wrong causes some swelling in the joints of her toes. We decided not to have the leg amputated because the vets do not think that Harriet is in pain, and she can still use it to get around. As a matter of fact, Harriet can get around VERY well! Don’t think that Harriet is a very expensive dog to care for, because she only requires some joint supplements and a daily anti-inflammatory. She would be so grateful to anyone who would give her a chance in their family.
Sparky is an adorable eleven year old diabetic that loves to be held and cuddled! Even though he is not a puppy, he is spry and loves to run and play. He would prefer to be an only dog because he wants to be the center of attention.
Chai is a wonderful bundle of energy! At 40 pounds, she is a great size and she loves to spend time with her people. She came to us needing some medical attention and is now healthy, happy, and ready for a home where she can be the only dog and the center of attention.
Charlie is a distinguished gentleman born in 2006. His grey muzzle makes his face very handsome. Charlie is very sweet an a little shy to people at first, but gets along well with other dogs and people. He is also a wonderful size at just under 40 pounds. He looks like a very small lab mix.
