In honor of Puppy Mill Awareness Day, we're featuring a puppy mill survivor who's looking for love and a forever home.
Breezy is a purebred mini Australian Shepherd female dog who is 4 years old. She weighs about 30 pounds and is reported to be a real sweetheart. Breezy is a little timid, so she'll need a patient home with a securely fenced yard.
This beautiful girl is currently with the National Mill Dog Rescue (NMDR) in Colorado. Adopting a retired mill dog can be a challenging, but very rewarding experience. If you believe Breezy is the dog for you, please contact NMDR.
National Mill Dog Rescue was established in February 2007, in honor of a forgiving little Italian Greyhound named Lily. Theresa Strader, NMDR's Founder and Executive Director, rescued Lily from a dog auction in Missouri. Prior to that day, Lily had spent the first seven years of her life as a commercial breeding dog, a puppy mill mom. Determined that her years of living in misery would not be in vain, Strader started NMDR, giving a voice to mill dogs across the country.
The mission of NMDR is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome discarded breeding dogs and to educate the general public about the cruel realities of the commercial dog breeding industry. To date NMDR has saved 6,792 dogs... and counting.
