I want to continue to learn so I can more effectively advocate, inform and educate.
My dogs, Mikki, Maddy and Maisy were all rescued from the streets myself. Cinderella was an unwanted dog, after her "evil step-parents" decided they didn't want their 13-year-old dog (whom they had since a puppy) to scratch their new hardwood floors or get her fur on their new carpet of their new house. So I took her. My Girls are the loves of my life. I ran my own (informal) street dog rescue several years back. I do have experience with puppy mill survivors. I am a doggy nanny and I have helped clients and their dogs with the issues that often come with adopting a puppy mill survivor.
