Almost every single puppy sold in a pet store has a mother who spends her entire life in a small cage. These confined dogs are solely used for breeding and are never treated and loved the way they should be.
Meet Lizzy, an adorable white pooch who spent 12 grueling years living in a cramped cage at a puppy mill. During this time, little Lizzy never once touched the ground.
Earlier this month, National Mill Dog Rescue rescued the charming canine who was immediately adopted by a loving family. She now has a happy home and the opportunity to experience life in a whole new way.
Too many dogs are subjected to the cruel conditions of puppy mills, and unfortunately, not too many get a second chance like darling Lizzy.
