She’s Been In A Shelter For 1,100 Days, Let’s Help Her Find A Forever Home.

Harriet means 'rules the home', and one very special Harriet is looking for a place to live up to her name. A 6-year-old pit bull, she has been in boarding for over 1,100 days. That's a little over three years. That's over half of her entire life.

A little more about her. She enjoys fresh air, sunshine, swimming, and car rides, and is great with children of all ages.

Harriet has experienced heartache before. In the past, she was adopted from Rockwall Animal Rescue in Texas by a loving family. Unfortunately, they lost their home and could not afford to keep her. Harriet was then moved to board in a tiny cell. The inside of a kennel is no proper place to be.

According to Harriet's team, "[She] lives in boarding in DFW TX, she has been in boarding for a VERY long time waiting for her forever family."

If you or anyone you know would like Harriet to join the family, contact Meri Lou Mahoney at 469-698-8898, [email protected], or Harriet's Facebook page.

Please note that she would do best as an only dog. Her team believes that a previous attack at a foster home together with time in boarding contributed to her issues with other dogs.

Here's before and after photos of rescue dogs that will make you smile.
