Billy, Shiloh and Tiny's Story
Submitted by: Laura Wilson
I have 3 Yorkies that are rescued from the Amish Puppy Mills. The first one was Billy a starving terrified skeleton of a dog. He is now normal adjusted and is the center of my world. My life changed forever on that day. I had never heard of an Amish puppy mill. I assumed they were the god like people we are told they are.. The joy of your first kiss, the first tail wag, the first time playing with a toy is unbelievable. No...

My rescue dog "Maddy." About 5 1/2 years old, and weighs in at 32 pounds. She picked me out last May. :-) Cross between a Blue Healer and a Chocolate Lab. Turns out from her personality she's really a Blue Healer with a Chocolate Lab paint job!
