All of our adoptable pets are housed with foster families. When age appropriate, they have been spay/neutered, crate, leash and house trained. They have all been living in a family environment so have been evaluated for temperament and personality. We believe that we should know each pet well enough to make sure that when adopted, everyone lives happily ever after.
Marta is a shy, quiet sweetheart. She was found raising her 8 puppies in an abandoned garage and she had almost starved to death in order to feed her babies. She was very fearful and uncertain of how people might treat her. Who knows how she got to that point? But, her puppies have all been adopted and Marta has learned that people can be trusted. She has really blossomed with a little care and attention. Now she needs a family of her own to love and trust. She will be a loyal, loving, faithful member of your family.
Special Needs: Marta is a light heart worm positive. She is on medication and DHS will continue to supply it. She has been on preventative for almost 3 years so should theoretically be negative but has not been retested. She will be prior to placement.
The DHS organized in November 2008 to care for the unwanted and neglected animals of Northeastern Louisiana. We are funded only by donations. We ARE making a difference but we still have a LOT to do....
