Meet Dolly Parton! She is a 65-pound, 8-year-old, pit bul mix who. up to now. has had a mysterious life. Miss Parton was dumped at Hank’s Lake, thankfully found by a good Samaritan, and brought to safety! It is believed DP would do best in an adult home with no other dogs, cats, or other animals. She has interacted and done well with our age 15+ volunteers and children in the home should be this age, dog savvy and kind.

DP is a bit shy and reserved but loves to be pet and scratched. She has her volunteer favorites that will sit in bed with her to give cuddles! She loves to be outside for walks, cruising the yard with you, playing with toys, and loves fun in the snow. Vet staff named her Dolly Parton as she will give you quite the concert and loves to sing just like her namesake. She is doing well in the shelter environment and adapting to new friends.

It should be noted that DP is deaf and has learned sign language to communicate her needs.  We do get visual response from her before leashing or petting and approach her from the right side.  Please be aware she does resource guard and does not want anyone around her food bowls or blanket.  She will need time, patience, and training to be comfortable in her new home. This senior companion will need a securely fenced yard.

If you have further questions, emails are the only method of communication at this time.   We all care about the health of our two-legged caregivers and the community at large, so as a precaution we are temporarily suspending our public open hours. We are still taking email inquiries and applications, and will be in touch with you as soon as we are able. We appreciate everyone’s understanding during this difficult time! Stay Well!
