My dog that I adopted from a rescue was saved from a puppy mill. 6 months down the line from when I got him he still carries the visible mental trauma from the way he was treated. He has got MILES better but the trauma will never leave him and even though he has learnt to trust me, it's heartbreaking to see that he is still frightened of many things. Make these puppy mills a thing of the past. They simply make profit out of animal cruelty. STOP THEM NOW.
