  Meet Holly!

Meet our gorgeous Holly!

Not only does Miss Holly have the looks, she has the personality to match. This 5 year old Amish Puppy Mill survivor has bloomed into a happy silly girl who is learning to ask for attention from everyone she meets. She came to us afraid of everything from the grass she had to walk on to the big scary sky above. Being kept in a barn your whole life will do that to you. But the true Holly was just waiting to show itself. It is not unusual to see her carrying a squeaky toy and throwing it in the air. She is comfortable being held by her foster family and excited to see new people as long as she is in her home environment. Her favorite activity is to untie your shoes and pull your pant leg.

Holly is still on the road to recovery but she has already traveled many miles and is now ready to find her way to her forever home.There is a great big personality hiding in this lovely girl. She just needs the right person with time and patience to help her find the confidence to let it show.

We think another social dog in the home would help Holly along. She also has a true affection for gentle children.

Holly is 12 pounds and 5 years old. Housebreaking is coming along but as with most mill survivors will need to be lovingly reinforced. A fenced yard is a must for this girl as she does not know how to walk on a leash.

Holly is up to date on vaccines, HW negative and on prevention. She is spayed and microchipped.

Holly is being fostered in Ohio.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Lyn at gingersnap@frontier.com.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
