Now living happily in Auburn, Nebraska.
Puffin was rescued from a nasty, wretched puppy mill in Missouri. She was terrified when she arrived. She was sick and skinny and her mouth was inflamed with infection. We had to handle this tiny girl with kid gloves. She lost 25 teeth during her vet visit, and endured some very intensive grooming to get her clean and smelling lovely. Puffin is still a little bit shy, but she is the sweetest thing. We thought she was avoiding being touched by people as she backs up as if to make an escape. We finally realized she was backing up to GET to people, and wanted us to pick her up for a cuddle. She is one smart pup. Puffin joins in with the group running to the sunporch for socialization, and stands back politely waiting for her treats and attention. She is very grateful for all that she receives. We are so proud of her and all that she has overcome.
