Their quality of life was undesirable to say the least...The neglectful owner of the puppy millhadn't even bothered to change the dogs' water, which had turned a green colour.Amongst the other prisoners, the volunteers noticed a Chihuahua who was clearly in a bad way.
Adam finally managed to get him out, and took him into his arms.It was obvious that the Chihuahua, named Billy, had never felt kind hands around him. He was paralysed, overwhelmed with feelingsof surprise, fear and happiness.
As he cuddles him, Adam is struck by the fragility of the little animal:
He was just a skeleton under his long fur...
The dog was quickly taken to one of the Humane Society rescue centres where the vets confirmed that he was dangerously underweight.But Billy is on the road to recovery. And of course, the road to happiness at last.
Alongside the intensive care which should get him back on his feet, the Chihuahua is making the most of the gentleness and kindness of his rescuer, Adam.Billy is living a proper dog's life, full of games, hugs and playdates with other dogs!
Luckily, more and more people are taking a stand against this shameful practice.And things seem to be moving in the right direction. Since April 2015, it has been illegal for pet stores to sell cats, dogs or rabbits from these kind of breeding farms.They canonly sell rescueanimals.
In addition, many organisations like Humane Society are organising more and more surprise inspections, providing us with lots of moving rescue stories.While we await the definitive end of puppy mills, we can't say it enough: rather than buying a your pet, adopt!Rescue centres are full of adorable cats and dogs who deserve a second chance.
