Marianne Needs a Foster Home

TMHPR has a beautiful girl who needs a foster home. 
She has come such a long way. She really enjoys other dogs. We are hoping a home with a yard, to run, play ball; and a family with a big heart who is willing to give her the time she needs to blossom into a wonderful part of a loving family.

Marianne has reached a new milestone!!  She has made her appointment for Wednesday morning to commit to never having another litter of puppies!

Marianne is a 3-4 year old medium size dog who we believe looks most like a flat coat retriever/aussie mix (our best guess) who is about 40 lbs.  

She was brought to Take Me Home Pet Rescue (TMHPR) on Christmas night with her litter of 5 puppies.  They were such tiny things. Animal advocates had worked long hours to rescue her and her “littles” from some horrible living conditions. 



You see, MariAnne was one of about 50 dogs (all unaltered) that were being kept in a horrible hoarding situation in Dallas. She was kept in an area that resembled a pig sty.  She shared this pen with 4 unaltered males. And her only food source were table scraps thrown over the wall.

MariAnne spent her days fighting for food to nourish her body in order to feed her puppies. And she also had to fight to protect her puppies from the males that shared her small living space.


So, it was no surprise that MariAnne came to TMHPR a very scared and protective Mama. But, you do not see that dog anymore. She is still cautious of new people, but she knows the world can be a safe and secure place.  The TMHPR volunteers have done an amazing job working with her!  And she is a wonderful dog.




MariAnne still remains at the Adoption Center as she has learned to adapt to a normal life. She is now confident on walks and her hair has grown in over the scars on her face.  She plays fetch with the volunteers; and loves to play with other dogs who come through the adoption center.  

MariAnne is looking for her forever home.  Someone who will be kind, loving and who will continue her training.


If you believe you are the right forever home for MariAnne, please go to the TMHPR website and fill out an Adoption Application.

Marianne is ready to move out of the center and on to the rest of her life.  If you are willing to foster MariAnne until her forever home is found, the same website has the Foster Application.  Submit your information to help care for this sweet girl.
