Homeward Bound - Adopted!
Now living happily in West Jordan, Utah
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.
Toccata is the tiniest of all things with a gigantic heart. She is a little shy, but not timid or scared. There are certain dogs that she just loves playing with, and her sweet personality emerges a bit more every day. We adore her silly ears and searching eyes and know that she will be beyond contented once she finds her own home.
