Do you have a puppy mill survivor? If yes, please share their story.

My dog, Mina, was purchased 11 years ago from a backyard breeder in NYC. At the time, my cousin desperately wanted a JRT puppy and, like many folks, did not know about the cruel world of puppy mills and backyard breeders. Mina came to live with me one year ago. As awareness of this animal cruelty continues to spread, my family has pledged to adopt not shop!
