Meet Angelique!

"Of the angels" or "angelic" very explicitly describes sweet little Angelique! This very petite 3 year old, 6 lb. Griff spent the first years of her life as a commodity in a commercial breeding facility. Despite numerous attempts, the breeder was not successful in producing pups for profit from Angelique. We like to think it was the angels keeping watch over this adorable tiny girl when the commercial breeder ultimately made the kindest gesture we could ever hope for by finally releasing Angelique to rescue a few weeks ago.

In her foster home, Angelique has blossomed almost overnight as she puts her fears of human touch behind her. She has quickly learned through love, patience, consistency and ample cuddling that humans can be trusted and even loved! In record time, she has learned to feel safe and secure sharing the bed with her foster family at night, or simply snuggling on the couch while her foster family watches TV. It has quickly become evident that all little Angelique wants is to be loved and to love someone in return...just as it should have been from the day she was born!

Adorable is the only word to describe Angelique as she scampers about exploring her foster home. Because her first 3 years of life existed only in a cage at the commercial breeding facility, the simplest of household activities we take for granted opens wondrous opportunities for Angelique to experience a brand new and exciting world.

We like to believe the angels continue to watch over sweet little Angelique as she patiently waits for her new forever family! Could the family Angelique has been looking for all her life be yours?

Angelique is continuing to improve with her housebreaking and lead training. She is up to date on vaccinations, is heartworm negative, on preventative, microchipped, and spayed.

Angelique is located in the Kansas City area.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Pam.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.

Angelique has been Adopted!

Our sweet little Angelique was adopted today by her very proud new mama who came all the way to chilly Kansas City from sunny Florida to adopt this very special little girl. Angelique will most definitely be living the good life in her new beach home across the road from the gorgeous white sands of the northeast Florida coast line playing big sister to her new baby brother, Rocco (a 3 month old Chihuahua), and being doted on by her very excited new mama and papa!

We just love happy endings, don't you?

Shane (Angelique's new papa), Angelique and Rocco (her new baby brother) on the first excursion to PetsMart. Everyone wore pink in honor of Angelique's arrival!

Thu. 11/20/2008: Our sweetheart is adjusting very well! Today she and Rocco played - I mean really played with each other! Chasing, jumping, running around the living room while I had coffee and Shane made breakfast. We acted like we didn't notice but were laughing so hard! Also she loves to sun herself on the front deck in the morning. I think her favorite thing is when I relax in bed to watch TV. One of my favorite things too I might add! She seems very content and happy. Me too!

Tue. 11/18/2008: Wow. Our little angel is great! I'm amazed at her love! She already knows momma and Shane. She loves to cuddle up. She is a good eater, and has not had any accidents! She has met the ER crew, the HR crew, my hair salon crew, my cat ladies, and Nancy and Doug with one of the 3 Jack Russels. Everyone talked softly and very sweetly and she was great!

We are in love!
Thank you Jan and NGBR!
