Here's Freckles. She came in last night and seems to be settling in well. She's a smooth coat, red merle, about 10 months old. She only weighs 3.2 pounds, which is why the puppymill dumped her. They said she wouldn't be profitable to breed. You guessed it. They don't pay for c-sections. Due to her markings, I named her Freckles for now. We'll be working on housetraining and socialization. She likes attention and gives sugars already so I'm sure she'll be just fine when I find her a new home. She's a little submissive right now but I don't know that's her true personality. It takes a bit for them to feel comfortable enough to show their real selves. I do know she's not a fear biter, yippeee!!!
I'm so happy we saved this one. The Yorkie that came in at the same time has so many issues from being housed in a puppymill her first 6 years. It's so sad and will take quite a bit of rehabbing before she's suitable for a family home. I'm thankful to God Freckles didn't grow and they decided they didn't want her anymore. She'll have a much better life now and will be loved for who she is, not how much money she can make for someone.

Those PM stories are so sad. I can't believe the things they do. It's beyond me how they can look in those sweet innocent faces and consider them a cash ticket, and nothing more. It's wonderful that there are people like you Lisa, that can help save them.

Oh she's a doll baby. I bet she'll find a great home right away. Who could resist that little munchkin. Thank you Lisa for all you do for our rescues. Thank God there are people out there to act as a safety net for these innocent babies.
