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.
Hula is another of our Dakota Darlings, and is she ever. She is the most adorable little thing and people comment on her astounding beauty all the time. She has been a bit shy but warms up quickly. When she is comfortable, she is a curious, funny girl who wants to see the world. We are seeing more of that silly side every day. Hula loves playing with the other dogs and has decided to join in all the fun during recess time. She will need just a very short amount of time in her new home before her family meets the spicy little girl we know is in there.
