Astrid came from a puppy mill in Kansas notorious for flaming, infected mouths and horribly deformed feet. The dogs at this mill have spent their lives on rusty, wire crate bottoms. They are given the lowest quality of food imaginable. They are generally wary of humans and require some time to get used to love. Astrid is still feeling a tad frightened of us, but it is very clear that she will come around quickly. She is a spunky little girl that is having a good time exploring. She is nosey and likes to know what's going on around her. We picture her walking nicely and with much purpose on a leash beside her favorite person, taking in all the sights and smells and wonders of her new world. We hope and pray that the day will come soon when she can prance away from us, looking back with a wave and a huge grin on her fuzzy, precious face.
