Puppy Mill Stories

November 29, 2013 – 12:04 pm

Candy was rescued from a puppy mill situation. She was skin and bones when we first got her into our home for foster care and
weighed only 36 pounds. She was scared of everything—my husband, the television and pretty much any noise. She was afraid to
come in our house, afraid to go up steps and afraid to eat. (continue…) Brookline got a call that there were 6 Lab pups and an adult female that needed our help. Our great group of volunteers started one of the largest surrenders we had undertaken and it was a huge success. A ‘puppy train’ departed on a Friday evening to pick up the precious cargo and deliver them to Dr. Brad Holmsten at the Animal Clinic of Westtown Village for a check on (continue…) Hey—check me out. I’m on the guest bed. We’re not supposed to get on furniture, but the guest bed is okay. After living in a crate for years and years and having the scars to show it, I like this bed thing. I roll around on it and toss the pillowsabout. But, I don’t chew the bed covers or pillows—they’re too comfy to chew up. (continue…) Lady spent the first five and half years of her life at a puppy mill. She was used as a “breeder dog”, meaning she was used to “crank out” puppies for profit. Lady lived outside in a kennel run. She received no training and little socialization. When Lady was no longer “useful” to the puppy miller, she was turned over to an independent rescuer who contacted Brookline for help. (continue…) Champ started out as a puppy mill “breeder dog, ” and was kicked out at age 7. While living in horrible conditions, Champ suffered from many untreated ear infections which caused scar tissue to build up in the middle ear. Champ had to undergo a procedure called biateral ablation…basically taking the middle ear out, so that the nasty infections that stayed there won’t come back. Champ did not know how to be a real dog. (continue…) In December of 2007, an independent rescuer was contacted by a puppy miller who wanted to “get rid of” two female Labs. The rescuer knew Brookline was closed for the holiday break and would not be able to take in any dogs for several weeks. But she also knew the fate these dogs faced if she did not take them. (continue…) Maggie’s is truly a Cinderella story. Born into a puppy mill, as a baby she wandered into the wrong litter; the whelping mother attacked poor Maggie, leaving her face and jaw severely disfigured and blind in one eye. (continue…)

Got a new puppy

Alright I got a new puppy and I would like some opinions, advice, tips, ect. First off the breed. She's a German Short haired Pointer/Black Labrador Retriever mix. I researched the breeds clearly but I want some info from people who have actually owned the breed and what they think of them personally .
Is there an age that you have to wait till to bring your dog on walks and such? I heard you had to keep your dog in until it was 4 months or something because of potential diseases.(Hope isn't the case because I'd like to be able to begin training her on a leash now.) She's had all her vaccines except rabies and has been de-wormed
