Meet Ms. Glenda. She has the biggest brown eyes and the softest hair!!! And how cute is her one floppy ear?

Glenda is a sweet girl, with a very easy, calm temperament. She loves her people and food. She gets excited to eat, she’ll prance around waiting for you to get her food ready. She’s kind of a goofy girl. She loves to itch her back when she’s happy. Since she’s a little older she doesn’t have any puppy energy left and she’s a dainty little girl at 20 pounds. She doesn’t bark very often. Because of these traits, caring for her is easy and manageable. She sleeps well in a crate all night long and doesn’t make a peep. She is always ready for bed by 9. She’s been learning so much since coming to MN. She didn’t know how to walk on a leash. It was obvious she wasn’t treated the best in her past, but that doesn’t stop her from trusting and loving people. She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. She is living with 3 kids, a dog and a cat. She loves the kids, but she lives parallel lives with the animals; she’s indifferent about them. She’s not interested in playing, which means she can live with or without animal friends. As her foster mom, I am so happy she’s getting a second chance at life and learning how to dog. We have worked on a schedule and we’re focusing on potty training. She’s doing good.

Are you ready to meet Ms. Glenda?  She’s waiting to meet you!

Glenda weighs 20 pounds and is from Texas.

*One big thing you should know is they are heartworm positive - but please don’t let that scare you away from adopting them! After they undergo treatment for their condition they will be completely healthy again, and heartworm is not a contagious disease.*

Because they need treatment, they are available exclusively through Ruff Start’s Foster to Adopt (FTA) program. Click here to learn more about this program.

They will get heartworm treatment at one of Ruff Start’s partner veterinary clinics in St. Cloud, so their foster will need to be comfortable getting them to and from the appointments. Treatment will consist of three injections: the first will be roughly 30 days after they enter rescue. Then, the second and third injections will happen 30 days after the first. When they are undergoing treatment, they should be on activity ‘restrictions’ which just means they should relax in their crate or cuddle with you.   Click here to learn more about heartworm disease, which is transmitted by mosquitoes. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
