Penny, our silver dappled miniature dachshund, was listed on Petfinder.com as "teenie weenie" when she was rescued from a puppy mill that planned to "dispose of her" because she had a slight under bite.
A rescuer visited the Ohio mill to rescue older breeder dogs but saw Penny as she walked in. Even in the worst of conditions, Penny was excited to see her and wagged her tail in a cage so small that her bottom kept hitting the sides. The rescuer said she could not let this little girl's outlook on life be ruined and rescued her first puppy from a puppy mill.
True to form, Penny is the happiest little girl you will ever meet and brightens everyone around her, everyday. She may have been lucky to escape the mill, but we feel luckier to have her in our lives!
