Puppy Mill Report

“I remember the first time I fed Nadine and Caroline. I expected them to gobble it down in one big breath. But instead they stood there like they didn’t know what to do. I had to hand feed them for a couple of weeks. I slept on the couch with them the first couple of nights because they would cry if you left them. They just didn’t know what to do with themselves. Caroline was so scared of people she would potty when someone came near her. Nadine was a sick little girl with heartworm. The most special time with these two I remember was when they started to play with the toys and my pugs. As time went on Nadine wouldn’t go anywhere without me. She was my shadow.

During Nadine’s heart worm treatment we became even closer. She was pretty sick from it and it made me realize how close she came to dying. Caroline was adopted to a wonderful family in Cincinnati and Nadine to a wonderful family in Toledo. Their adoptions were bitter sweet for me. I loved those girls so much but I knew their new families would love as much if not more. These little pugs are so grateful for what they have been saved from and you can see it in their eyes.”
