Show your support for the Dog And Cat Breeder Regulation Bill
Meet Millie. How can you resist those big brown eyes? Unfortunately, the people she trusted to care for her could. Millie is a rescue from a puppy mill. She is a bichon frise, known for their happy dispositions and loving personalities, but for the six years of her life, Millie was used to produce litter after litter of puppies. She probably never experienced a human touch unless it was to pick her up by the scruff of the neck, as she cringes when someone tries to pet her. She probably never had a bath as she had was covered in twelve-inch dreadlocks that were dirty and crusty with blood and afterbirth. She probably never had her nails trimmed as they looked like twisted twigs. She had ear mites and a yeast infection in her ears. Instead of being given a name, she had a number tattooed in her ear. This is how puppy mills care for their animals.
This is what
Millie is one of the lucky ones. She's been rescued. She has a chance of being adopted and becoming the happy dog she was meant to be.
