Now living happily in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Colleen spent the first 6 years of her life in a puppy mill. She never knew a soft bed, had no space to run and play...she didn't even know what running and playing was about. She only knew imprisonment. She had a mammary tumor from giving birth to litter after litter of puppies and she had a tumor on her shoulder, probably due to poor nutrition. The puppy mills get by with as little vet care and food cost as they can. They often feed food that is high in toxic chemicals and byproducts and low on any nutritional value for the dog. Because of the poor nutrition Colleen also lost 8 teeth. Her pathology reports came back with good news. Both of the tumors are benign. Colleen will live to know love and happiness. She is timid, still recovering. We can tell that she very much wants to know love. She still seems defeated at times, her eyes pleading. But with love, soft blankets, good food, patience and kind voices she will be a little miracle, we just know it. Colleen was born in April of 2002 and weighs 11.6 pounds. She is a female Pomeranian.
