Meet Sweetie Pie

Hi, my name is Sweetie Pie!

I am a beautiful Collie mix that was born around 3/08/22.

Sadly, my previous owner / family moved our and took six dogs, their kids, but left me behind to fend for myself.

A kind neighbor was feeding me after they abandoned me while frantically calling local rescues for help.

She told the rescue volunteer that picked me up that my previous owner was very abusive. She mentioned that she had seen them pick me up by my throat and would throw me across the yard when she got frustrated with me. She also saw they would kick at me, and the kids in the home would beat on me with sticks.

Thankfully, I was rescued by a local rescue so I could have a chance at life.

I was transferred to two other rescues before making my way into the care of Happy Paws.

You see, I am a special case as I tend to get attached to the people in the home and can be fearful when new strangers come inside. I will need to work on my confidence boosting and socialization. Due to this is why two other rescues gave up on me.

Happy Paws could not see me fail and sent back to Arkansas so a special foster and one of the co-founders stepped in to help my case.

So far, I seem to do well with other dogs (non-dominant male preferred) with proper introduction. I also would do BEST as the only dog as I prefer all the LOVE and ATTENTION. ♥

Here are some things you need to know about me:
- Need a slow intro with new people!
- Do well with other non-dominant / high-energy dogs.
- Total LOVE BUG!
- Very loyal to my person due to being dumped by previous owner.
- Have history of abuse / neglect. Need patient adopter!
- I get protective and bond close with one person, so someone who is solo just looking for a best friend would be the most IDEAL for me!

* I would do best in an adult only home with no little kids, please. *

** I do need a firm and guiding handler. **

I would LOVE a big fenced yard to run around in!

If you are interested in meeting me, please submit an application TODAY!
