She Was Rescued From A Puppy Mill Months Ago, But When She Turned 10? I’m All Tears.

Puppy mills are places of sadness and abuse. Female dogs are forced to give birth to puppies over and over. What happens to the mother dog when she can no longer have puppies? Well, in Mischa’s case, she was left at a New Jersey shelter. The shelter couldn’t help provide for her medical needs; Mischa, a Shih Tzu mix, was in terrible shape.

But a rescue stepped in before she was put down. Road To Home Rescue took Mischa in after another rescue pulled her out of the shelter. Elyse Giurco, co-founder of Road To Home, said that Mischa’s teeth were in such bad shape even the veterinarian can’t approximate her age.

It was clear by the state of her sexual organs that Mischa had just been a breeding machine for most of her life. Mischa had three mammary tumors removed and extensive dental work. Mischa is now in foster care with Melissa, waiting for her forever home.

Melissa says that it is evident Mischa is an older dog, maybe around ten, but she is full of energy and loves to play! Some of Mischa’s favorite activities are taking walks and getting belly rubs! Mischa is a lap dog.
Melissa says she would be perfect for a retired person that spends a lot of time at home – that way Mischa can get all the love and attention she has missed out on! If you have a lap or know of one, that would be the perfect place for Mischa – let Road To Home know at adopt@roadtohomerescue.org.
Share away, people.
