The HEART BEAT May 2018
This is the story of Nora and her journey to HWAH... Nora who is friendly and holds no grudge was quickly adopted and went to live with a busy family, who had lots of visitors coming in and out, and other dogs. Nora is a talker!!! Not really a barker, a talker!!
So she talked to the visitors, she talked to the other dogs, and she talked to her new family and no one realized they needed to make Nora stop TALKING!!!
After about 10 days…early in the morning, the family woke up to Nora coughing and coughing, hardly able to breathe!!

Frances came to HWAH in the fall of 2012.

We wanted to share a special visit we had by Alex from Germany!
He has been following us on Facebook ever since he saw the Nat'l Geo video . He planned a visit to the United States, and we were lucky enough to be on his list of places to visit. He spent time with the pups and even was able to remember most of their names by the time he left!
