Homeward Bound - Adopted!
Now living happily in North Platte, NE
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.
Kapelle is a gorgeous, petite little girl. She adores people and has been having a great time interacting with the other small dogs. Nothing about her is bad in any way. She has a super sweet, calm disposition and can bust the moves when it comes to fun. She is another Dakota Darling guilty of zany butt wiggling when she is playing. Due to the complete neglect of the puppy miller, Kapelle lost 27 disgustingly infected teeth when she saw the vet for her dental. She is otherwise very healthy and very happy and precious in every way.
