Scared Schnauzer by SublimeBudd Scared Schnauzer by SublimeBudd
:no: 27 schnauzers were seized from an Iowa Park puppy mill..

i know this shot looks scary.. but i assure you, those are some of the most loving hands that could ever touch an animal :love:
Rick Wright is on the right

:( these dogs were in horrible condition.
this was dog number 9 to be tested
Out of those 9,
7 tested positive for heart worms.
5 were positive for ehrlicia (tick fever)
3 of them showed signs of a severe ear infections

most of the dogs were female and about half were pregnant..

the dogs that made it are with foster homes.. rehabilitating :D

first story [link]
follow up [link]


this pup is doing a lot better..
i should be getting more shots soon

as always..
remember to volunteer/donate/adopt from your local shelter :)


maybe these other shots from the
humane society will cheer ya up ;)

I'm happy that some were able to get out okay...

So unfortunate for others. But some were saved.

Puppy mills..... like an illegal breeding place?

Man sometimes I think about forming the Militant wing of PETA... the MORE militant one...

If they're going to keep puppy mills around, then shouldn't they have some standards put in place to make sure the dogs are kept in good conditition? Otherwise, why not just shut them all down?

I've been to a puppy mill in Quebec before, it was depressing. All of the dogs were kept in these little mesh cages, like in factory arms. If that's how they're all going to be, then es, shut 'em down.

It's a shame, really. Both the puppy mills, and the fact that they're allowed to stay in business. The animal rights laws in both of our countries should be more strictly reinforced.

Oh my... How heart breaking... I love my schnauzer mix... he makes me smile every single day and I love him so much for that... I hope hope hope that they all find homes where they can hog the pillows at night and can count on their people to feed them and love them and enjoy them every single day.

Ohhh, my eyes are full bugger you. Glad they shut another one down. This is why I do not buy from pet stores and do not support them. They will be so happy once they are healthy and on their way to adoption.

I agree. I have two dogs now but when I decide to do another I will def adopt an older dog. You can get great animals from a proper shelter.
