Your Questions About Rotties For Adoption

Lisa asks…

Would you ever adopt a dog that was rescued from a puppy mill?

I was going to ask this earlier, but Yahoo! Answers wasn’t working.

I came across a rescue called a Rotta Love, and they have two female Rotties available for adoption. I know “adopt” and “adoption” aren’t the correct terms, but I don’t know how else I could describe this.

I am not ready for a dog at the moment, but this question just came across my mind while I was looking on the website.

So, would you ever adopt a dog that was rescued from a puppy mill? My only worry would be be behavior/temperament/health issues due to being in an unhealthy enviornement.

BQ- Am I the only one who found Mikey irresistable?


BQ 2- Is anyone else proud of Pearla for her accomplishments?

Sarah Jones answers:

I once adopted a Shetland Sheep dog (aka: Sheltie) from a puppy mill. I knew I was getting a messed up dog. This little guy was nine years old. He was skin and bones, covered in scabs and soars. Most of his under coat was gone. Mentally, he was all mess up.

It took a lot of work, but with in less then a years, he looked great. His scabs and soars were gone, his hair grew in, and he was a fat, sassy, happy little dude. He still had some mental issues, but we did accomplish the most important thing, which was to teach him life could be good. That life didn’t have to be full of pain, fear, hunger, and loneliness.

We only had him for a bit over four years. But those were a great four years. I mean to see his on a walk, just strutting with pride. To see him playing with my other dogs, watching him run, and bounce around, it was like watching pure joy in motion.

When he passed way, I realized something.

He was not lucky we found him…we were lucky we found him.

Well you have a great day.
