Greetings from Rowena. I came from the same horrendous puppy mill as Denver and Vivianne, other FTF rescues. A total of 60 dogs were found in the facility and saved by Animal Rescue Corps. All of us were kept chained, given only enough food and water to survive, and barely had contact with humans. I'm now living in the FTF Hut, savoring my freedom, and dreaming of my forever home. I know that taking a chance on a pup who, up until now, has only experienced cruelty is a big ask. But as the volunteers here quickly realized, my previous abusive environment has not defined me. I'm making friends with everyone I encounter-2-legged and 4-legged alike. And I know that with your love and understanding, I'll soon be able to put my past behind me and become the wonderful canine companion I was always meant to be.
A few facts about me. I've discovered the joys of playing with other dogs. So if there's another canine in your household to be my buddy and mentor, that would be terrific. I also enjoy going on long walks and will make it my job to keep us active, rain (snow) or shine! As you can see from my photo, I'm on the thin side and need to gain some weight. That won't be hard though, because the first time I was given a treat, my mouth exploded in happiness, and I couldn't wait for another. My food motivation not only will help me fill out but will also make training me easy peasy. Speaking of training, I need to work on "holding it" longer. But on a field trip to the home of a volunteer, I was accident-free, so I'm catching on to doing my business outside. And I'm happy to report that I go in my crate without fuss and quietly settle in.
As great as the Hut is, I know that living with you will be even better. Please fill out an adoption application and schedule a meet and greet. I have a feeling we're meant to be!
Love and licks,
If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
