Beauty has found a wonderful place and she will be in her forever foster home!! Now Beauty’s story really begins!

Beauty’s story is heart wrenching and a reminder of why everyone should advocate animal adoption…

Beauty is a victim of dog hoarding. A few weeks ago, the Humane Society of the United States rescue team received a call about a hoarder just outside the Mojave Desert who had over 300 dogs on her property. The eldest was Beauty, who the rescue team believes gave birth the majority of the dogs on the property. She was found lying on the dirt under the scorching sun, with flies in her eyes. One of the workers thought she may be dead.

Beauty did not deserve the disturbing life she had to live for the past 10 years. She deserved love, care and comfort, but instead got the opposite.

Now at Muttville, you can imagine that Beauty, a small shepherd mix, is a bit shy. She is also a huge sweetheart! She is slowly adapting to her new environment, surrounded by safe people and loving hand strokes to her head and body. Beauty allows us to pick her up and hold her close when we need to move her. She truly needs a home where her space can be respected, so she can continue to evolve and share the love that she has deep in her gentle heart.

Sadly, Beauty has passed away. But thanks to Muttville and its wonderful friends, she spent her final time in a loving home.
