One day my mommy saw an add in the local newspaper and she got a website. She went to the website which will remain annon. My mom saw this website it said they were inspected by akc and approved. Well being un exducated about puppy mills my mom contacted these people about a Shih- Tzu(me).
They told her i was discounted becuase I had bad hair and thin hair not like a typical pup of my breed. So mommy made an appt to come see me and pick me up.

Well the long anticipated wait of the day came . The children were so excited we finally got there. She brought me out to my mom. My mom had never seen a dog like me she thought I was ugly I was at the time. She put me in my mommys arms and they asked mommy if she wanted me. I stunk so bad the place was so nasty smelling that my mommy almost threw up. There was so many dogs that my mommy said she had never seen so many in her life. I was very under socialized very scared. Very smelly. Of course, Mom told them yes she wanted me.

Finally, all the contracts etc were signed. I was on my journey to my new home. I was put in the back seat with the human children. Here is the thing they said that i smelled so bad that the human boy was crying ,the human girl was holding their nose they were only 4 yrs old at that time. They go ewww put him somewhere put him in the truck. Let me walk said the human boy. Well of course they didnt know any better. And mommy told them they just had to deal with it till we got to their grandmas to give him a bath becuase thats where we were going at the time. Mommy took the human children there to run get me some puppy stuff.

My grandma then proceeded gave me a bath but it still didnt take all the smell away it actually took several months for the smell to go away. My mom even took me to the groomer the next week to get my hair done since I had bad hair and she wanted to find out what they thought. They told my mom that my smell might actually have been due to the over crowding the conditions and it could take a few months for my smell to go completly away. They were right it did.

Not only was I stinky but I had worms , tape worms, Fleas, and I needed a few more grocerys. My mom then after being on dogster and reading about puppy mills etc learned that the place she got me was a puppy mill, backyard breeder. When mom got me neutered she told this rescue about me and told several rescues actually but this place is still in operation and only getting bigger. With more types of dogs than they didnt have.

My mom said that its an experience she never wants to see or go to again. She is so glad she didnt take her human kids in becuase she is afraid they would have defiantly said something about the smell. My mom just looks at my life back then and remembers what she went through to get me and she says shed do it again but doesnt know if she could keep her mouth shut knowing what the place is now.

I was also supposed to be regisitered and the lady broke the contract after I was paid off and never sent my mom the papers but she says its ok. I am neutered I was neutered on May 25,2007 and I have a wonderful home with a wonderful life with my two human kids. All my Furry brothers and sister. If only all dogs got the second chance at life like me. Only my second chance came early.

Mom says that its important to get the name puppy mill and backyard breeders out there becuase there are so many who do not know what it is. There are so many under educated people out there about this type of stuff.
The more we educate the more we can be on our way to stopping this.
