371 American Eskimo dogs rescued from puppy mill

There are so many things wrong/disgusting/revolting/offensive with this.

  • Puppy mills are disgusting on every level
  • Neighbors who were aware of this situation and appear to have done nothing about it are wrong
  • That this "person" was only charged with one count of second degree animal cruelty is wrong and an insult to these poor animals
  • That these dogs continued to live in these conditions for two weeks after the authorities were aware of the situation is offensive

Animal shelters and rescue organizations are great sources to find your next family member. If you choose to get a pup from a breeder, PLEASE do your research and find an ethical breeder. You will not find pups from an ethical breeder at a pet store. Those poor pups come from situations like the one in the article above.

If you do not know how to determine which breeders are ethical, please contact that breed's national club for recommended breeders. Our parents thought they knew the right questions to ask when they found Eva through a local "breeder". Unfortunately, they did not see all of the warning signs and later they found that Eva's parents are from a commercial breeder (aka puppy mill).

Equally loved in spite of our little quirks,
Princess Eva & Brice

p.s. Don't worry - Momma didn't let us touch the bone that came from the sky

GRRRRRRR!!! No pup deserves that kind of neglect! We hope the publicity will make more people aware of the horrific conditions at puppy mills. Very sad.
Paws crossed these dogs get the good homes they deserve.
