This precious little man was recently rescued from a puppy mill in Missouri. He spent EIGHT YEARS in a wire cage. He was fed disgusting, cheap food. He was never given a blanket or a toy or love. Due to the lack of vet care, he lost every single tooth in his tiny, infected mouth. But despite it all, Ira is a happy, friendly, cuddly little guy who loves everyone. He is grateful for every moment of his new life. He adores his recess time in the sunporch with the staff and volunteers and other dogs. He has fun adventures in the big yard, exploring and sniffing and learning all about freedom. It is time for Ira to experience home living. We want nothing more for this special guy than a family to call his own, who can continue to show him how worthy he is of love and comfort and some big time spoiling.
