Japanese Chin/Chihuahua Mix
Homeward Bound - Adopted!
On January 29, 2014, HUA rescued 45 dogs from a puppy mill in South Dakota. Some of the dogs went to other groups and the majority of them (about 30) came to HUA. HUA has been working with this particular mill on downsizing and we are pleased to announce that this mill is now shut down!
Because of these collaborative efforts, another 45 dogs are now free. Of the group, only 3 of them are males. All others are females. Puppies were also released. A few three-month-old Japanese Chin pups and four six-week-old pups are in the group. What does all this mean? Female dogs are not needed at the mill for breeding because puppies aren't selling. Efforts in educating the public are working and we must continue to let people know about puppy mills and their connection to pet stores, newspaper ads, internet ads, etc.
They say that pictures speak a thousand words. Judging from Bermuda's photos, we cannot disagree. She is tiny, adorable, happy, playful, silly, precious, friendly, cuddly....well, she is all good, puppy things. She will never know the life of her mother and father. She will never suffer at the hands of human beings who think of dogs as money making objects rather than family members. She will know nothing but happiness and love. For that, we are eternally grateful.
