Adopt this Pet: Bravo

This pooch needs a permanent cheering section.

Well-wishers typically say “Break a leg” to actors and musicians before they go on stage to perform. This lovable dog named Bravo actually had a broken leg when he arrived at the Hilton Head Humane Association in November 2017. Luckily, his rotten luck has changed. His fractured front leg has healed and his heart worm treatment is complete. Bravo now hopes to find his permanent cheering section — he’s ready for his encore. He’s known hunger; he’s known thirst. He’s lived the best and seen the worst. With your help, he could finish first. Just imagine all the smiles you will get yelling “Bravo!, Bravo!” all over town. You can’t keep a good dog down!

Success Stories: An Update

ARIEL (JULY 2018) Ariel’s adoption was so exciting when the owners came looking for their first pet but were saddled with breed restrictions as renters. I suggested a hound or lab. They were interested in Stretch and Ariel. Luckily for Ariel, Stretch paid them no attention. Ariel came right into the yard and loved them immediately. They fell in love with her sweet personality and her energy was perfect for their active lifestyle. While we were completing the adoption paperwork, the mail arrived and LOCAL Life magazine was there. I had previously told the owners that Ariel was the feature dog for that issue. All the stars aligned for our sweet Ariel.

KAZAK (JUNE 2018) Kazak’s owner was getting her very first dog. She wanted an older dog and one that was loving and cuddly. Kazak loves people and right away stuck to her new owner like glue. The owner likes to entertain and Kazak is the life of the party. It was a great match!

WIZARD (MAY 2018) AVAILABLE You don’t need to follow a yellow brick road to find a wonderful Wizard. This 4-year-old boxer/bulldog mix featured in the May issue is still available at the Hilton Head Humane Association. Put on your ruby slippers, click your heels and go get this pretty pooch.

HANSEL (APRIL 2018) Hansel’s owners came in looking for a young dog, not a puppy. We discussed dogs they owned prior and I decided Hansel fit the description. He wowed them right away. He had been going to training class and was happy to show off his skills. I have received several updates from the owners and Hansel is dong fantastic.
