One of the pictures above shows Pisces being held on the left and Tania being held on the right. Both girls arrived at Izzy's Place in December from National Mill Dog Rescue (NMDR). They are not a bonded pair; so they can be adopted separately.
Tania is a sweet Yorkie. She is still slightly skittish around people, but she continues to get better every day. She loves receiving ear scratches and licking peanut butter off her foster mom's finger. This little girl is so funny! When meal times arrive each day, Tania loves to spin and do laps around the kitchen while her foster parents prepare dinner for all the dogs.
Update 1/27/2017: Tania is a puppy mill survivor AND a cancer survivor! She recently had several masses removed. The lab results of those masses came back showing they had been cancerous. However, her vet shared that there is only a 7% chance of the cancer recurring. Clearly, Tania is determined to live a full and happy life now that she is living the life she should have always had! Way to go, little girl!!
Please note that because Tania is a mill rescue, she must be adopted into a home that has at least one other friendly, trained dog. The reason for this is so that her new canine sibling(s) can help her continue to learn how to be a dog—and an indoor dog who is part of a loving family at that.
It can often take a little extra time to train dogs who've spent their lives in puppy mills, even for common skills such as house training and leash walking. So it will be critical that Tania's new family have patience, understanding, and gentle hands. It's important to note that most mill-rescue dogs learn quickly to become a family pet. For the families who adopt mill rescue dogs, being a part of their rehabilitation is an extremely rewarding experience. You can learn more about mill-rescue dogs at NMDR's website: http://milldogrescue.org.
