 Special Spotlight 


I want to tell you my story!

I was a young stray female dog roaming on a reservation in northern MN. No one (including me) is really sure how I came to be there. But I was hungry, I know that. And I had a pretty big open wound on my hind leg. It hurt. But I wasn't sure what to do about the hunger or the pain. I just looked for food and hoped for the best. 

Apparently I was being watched by some cameras. The cameras notified Hero's Heart Animal Rescue and The Retrievers. They came and trapped me. At least that's how I think it worked?

Now I've had help for my wound, I'm not hungry anymore, and I'm vaccinated too, I guess. On May 14th I'll be spayed.  I'm very excited to find my forever home. I'm ok with other dogs, cats are ok, and I really like the horses! They are super cool! I'm thinking I might start eating hay so I can hang out with them!

I have had some anxiety, as I'm sure you can understand. I will need a home that can give me a lot of time, attention and patience. I'm learning the potty training thing, as well as how to walk on a leash. 

Please contact Hero's Heart if you'd like to learn more about me!
