When this sweet darling arrived from a puppy mill in Missouri, she was a horrid mess of filth and clumps. She came in with several friends, who were equally in need of medical care, grooming, and most importantly, TLC. Esther is one of the sweetest things around. She is still a little shy but very happy to be in the company of people being loved and cuddled. She has mastered the trick of dancing on her dainty back feet, asking for attention and melting everyone's hearts. Esther's dearest friend is Mercy Warren from the same puppy mill, and together they have a super time playing hide and seek under one of the small Kuranda beds. Day by day, these incredible creatures show us the bravado and determination it takes to not only survive life in the horrors of a puppy mill, but to leave the past in the past and look forward to a future full of love, comfort and trust.
