Mollie here, today I am thinking, I hate puppy mills. Facilities that put profits above the physical, mental and medical needs of the dogs in their care. This is the type place our new foster brother Joey came from. Here's his story....
This is Joey. His story has a sad beginning but now that he is with us we know it will have a happy ending. See he was born in a breeding facility. This place owns a lot of dogs which are kept outside in small kennels year round. When a puppy is past his/her expiration date they are given away free. That is what happened with Joey. The breeder couldn't sell him so she gave him away free to the first person who would take him. Well in 9 months of living in a cage with minimal handling and NO socialization he became very fearful. When a nice person who wanted to help heard about him, she took him home only to find he was totally shut down. He could not be caught, can not be touched (his entire body flinches when you pet him) and can not be walked (momma says its easier to walk a cinder block). So when she felt she couldn't help him she called my momma and boy she knew she could help him. She had done it with me 7 1/2 years ago. So last evening she met with this person and now Joey lives here. He goes to visit the Dogtor tomorrow. He gets neutered next Wednesday.
Uncle Puppy's thinking...can I play with the puppy? Can I hold the puppy? Can I sniff the puppy? Please, Please Please with cRaCkErS on top!!!
