Now living happily in Nebraska.
Apache came from a recent puppy mill rescue out of Nebraska with many other Papillons. His tiny mouth was sore and severely infected, causing him to lose 25 teeth during his vet visit. We can't even imagine the pain he was in, and his time at the mill has affected the way he looks at life. He is not of the hysterical sort, rather he is quite reserved and gentlemanly. He is shy and still trying to figure things out. He takes comfort in being with the other Paps that suffered along with him, and the more outgoing ones are showing him the ropes. We know Apache will be just fine. He doesn't shrink in horror like so many dogs from puppy mills do. He just needs a little time to understand that he is never, never going to be back in that wretched place where he spent the first 9 years of his life.
