Lil Teeny was surrendered to HOWS Project last Saturday. 🙌 And she was taken into short term foster by Amy and Jonathan so she’d have a soft place to land. 💟
She has since been vetted and spayed. She’s a healthy little 1.5 year old lab/pit/something else mix. Per Amy, she is a very sweet girl who loves to give kisses. Her tail is constantly wagging. She gets scared by loud noises. She loves dinner and breakfast time. She takes treats very gently. She does not like baths, but she’s likely never had one before so we’ll give her a pass on that. She loves to jump on the sofa and cuddle with her humans. She’s also been very good about doing her business outside! 👍
Teeny has not been tested with kids or cats. Amy has two dogs and Teeny growls at them sometimes. We think she’s just overwhelmed— she’s been through a lot in this last week, and none of it is familiar. On the property from which she came, there were several other outside dogs and she seemed to be fine with them. She would even run off through the neighborhood with one if they were both lucky to slide out of their tethers.
With Amy and Jonathan being a temporary foster home, we need to move Teeny on to the next leg of her freedom journey, *preferably before this coming Friday* when Amy goes out of town.
HOWS is willing to bring in a trainer to assist with helping Teeny adjust if need be.
Might you or someone you know be looking for a Teeny little friend with whom to share your heart and home? 💖🙏 We’d love a furever home, but would be happy for a long term foster as well.
🙌💟🐕 GUESS WHO’S MOVING ON TO LIFE INSIDE?!?!?! 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍 What an awesome Valentine’s gift for Biggie! ❤️This handsome old lil stud muffin was surrendered to HOWS today and taken to Little Big Dog Rescue! Dot Terry already has a foster ready to receive him! 🙌 We are so thankful to Biggie’s people for wanting him to have a life inside, to Dot and her group for taking him in, and to Andrea Denton for transporting him from one end of the world to another! Lots of logistics, but the stars aligned and because of a handful of dedicated people Biggie will never spend another night out in the cold again.
💖🐾💖 At Valentine’s Day, HOWS Project wanted to give some love back to the staffs of the two main veterinary hospitals who help us help HOWS dogs with so many spay/neuter procedures and other medical needs.
❤️ We LOVE you Old Dominion Animal Hospital and a Georgetown Veterinary Hospital! ❤️ You help us do soooo much with a shoestring budget! 😉😘
Special thanks to HOWS volunteers Megan Rice and Mary Barrick for putting these amazing collections of fantastic together! 👍
