Homeward Bound - Adopted!
Now living happily in Beatrice, Nebraska
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.
Roca is a Dakota Darling, and darling she is. She is a sweet, gentle, quiet little Poodle girl who is happy to let the others go wild around her. She loves being with people and the other dogs, and will sit nicely and wait her turn for treats and laps. She's not much into the toy scene and prefers to just hang back and enjoy the ruckus from afar. Like most Poodles, Roca is a devoted little thing and grateful for all she receives. We think she is perfect in every way.
