     So appreciate this support group which allows us to share our 'puppymill' dog issues. A special thanks to Donna & Jeni for your time and sharing your experiences working with these dogs.

     I appreciate the support of others in the "community of fearful dog owners." It helps me realize that slow progress does not necessarily mean *I* am doing something "wrong" but I there's always room for improvement.

     Six months ago - if someone had warned me that adopting a dog with puppy mill history would come with so many issues - I probably wasn't listening hard enough. I 'thought' I knew about pet parenthood, but since Mandy joined our family - I have come to realize that a history that includes puppy mills brings a whole different kind of experience. I just wasn't receiving the standard responses from Mandy --- and I realized quickly I needed to surround myself with those who had traveled this path...and those who could hold my hand during some very heartbreaking and patience trying times. There isn't much readily available that addresses the specific needs and situations involved with including these 'special needs' dogs into your family. I appreciate the support and expertise that is generated in this group. I would love reading more about other dogs and their journey - both the trials and triumphs.

     I am so glad I found this group. I have been to my first meeting and have already learned things I could not find with my conventional dog resources.

     Fantastic. I look forward to a discussion on how the caregivers (us) can best deal with the stress and anxieties on the rollercoaster that is having a puppy mill dog. Thank you, Donna!

     I really appreciate the fact that you enable us to hear people like Theresa and Dr. McMillan.

     WONDERFUL!

  • Puppymill rescue dogs support group!

     They are valuable because these dogs have special needs - and very individual needs based on their experiences - what works on a "normal" dog may not work on them and may in fact - set them back.

     I just recently joined. I am thrilled to have found this group. We adopted a 8 year old girl who lived her life in a puppy mill. It is so nice to have a place to go for questions and advice. I wish I would have found this group earlier.

     I enjoy talking with all the wonderful adopters in this group that provide the love, patience, and safe surrounding these dogs require.

     I had no idea what I was getting into when I got Promise. I have worked with dogs for years but it did not prepare me for helping Promise. I really needed support from people who understand the problems puppy mill dogs (and hoarder's dogs) face. I have learned so much from the puppymilll rescue support group and other similiar groups.

     Puppy mill dogs are very complicated critters...all of them so different and this is a good source of information

     We are thankful for our rescued yorkie (Lexi), she has opened our eyes to the outrageous living conditions in which they live. I have encouraged all family and friends to consider rescuing instead of searching out a breeder for a puppy. After meeting Lexi and hearing her story, they all have expressed great concern for what these mills are doing to helpless animals.

     It's a wonderful idea to help both the adopter and the adoptees wade thru the numerous problems which are bound to crop up from time to time.
