This beautiful girl is Heidi. She's a young 3 year old Doberman / Greyhound mixed breed dog. Originally from Louisiana and now at Wayside Waifs animal shelter in Kansas City, she's got quite a story to tell!
I am originally from Louisiana and it has been a wild ride since my days in the south! An older gentleman found me wondering along the swampy roads of Slidell when he brought me home with him and gave me love and shelter. He could no longer care for me though so he took me to a wonderful family to help me find a home. They took me in and loved me as their own and only had great things to say about me! However, they didn't have a fenced yard and they worried that I would get hurt when I ran around their property! They were very upset to give me away but they knew they wanted to give me my best chance at finding my family. They had known about Wayside Waifs and made the drive up here to the Midwest.
When I first got to Wayside I was a little confused. I'd never been in an environment like this before and I was intimidated by all the hustle and bustle of shelter life. They decided I needed some help adjusting so they put me on a special team called Green Team. It's a group of trained volunteers that work with shy and fearful dogs. It didn't take me long to warm up and soak up all the love that has been given to me here. I soon began to be my old self again and love life! I'd never seen snow before but I love to prance and frolic in this white blanket they call snow!
I'd love to tell you a little more about myself to see if we would be the right fit together! I am pretty under socialized with other dogs and I don't really know how to be around them. The staff here thinks it would be best for me to the only pet in your home. I hope that doesn't worry you because I have a big personality and a lot of love to give so I will definitely do my best to make you happy! I already know several tricks too! I know sit, shake, down and speak. I am one smart girl! I am also completely house trained per my previous owners but I may need a refresher course in my new home until I get into a routine. I am still a young girl so I will need plenty of exercise! Do you like to go on runs? I love to run and would make a pretty great running buddy!! Walks? I love to go exploring with you and seeing this new place they call the Midwest!
I've seen a lot of this country so far in my short 2 years but what I want more than anything is a family of my own! If you are looking for a sweet, funny and loyal girl then look no further! Come on out to Wayside Waifs today and ask to meet Heidi. I'll be waiting with a smile on my face just for you!
Hugs and Kisses, Heidi
