Anipal photo hunt - Be the change
Cokie 's photo hunt has asked us to"be the change" by publicizing unadoptable animals. Here in Missouri our laws are such that puppy mills abound. My featured anipal is a lovely little lady chihuahua who was rescued from the mills. She is fostered by our #nipclub charity, the St. Louis Senior Dog Project.
This is Tillie is a sweet little 5 lb Chihuahua who has had a very sad and hard life as a puppy breeder. She has spent her entire 7 years of life living in a very small cage in an Ozark puppymill. She is uncertain of human touch and sometimes even fearful, but she is quickly learning to trust her foster mom. Tillie will need a special family to show her lots and lots of love and attention, and to assure her that no one will ever be unkind to her again. She will do best in a quiet home with another small dog(s) for companionship, and a fenced yard is required. Tillie is current on her immunizations, she has been heartworm tested, microchipped, spayed, and has had her teeth cleaned. Her adoption fee is $175. If you would like to know more about Tillie, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
