Puppy Mill Survivor Week: Radar

This week we are dedicating it to dogs that have survived the terrible life of puppymills and to start off we have Radar here to tell his story:

Hi There! My name is Radar, I wanted to tell you a little bit about me. My foster mom tells me that I have special needs, oh I'm not sick, I don't need medicine or surgery but I need special people to love me. You see I once lived in a dirty, dark place, that my foster mom calls a puppymill, I never had a name for it but it was scary. I had no idea that dogs lived like this, in a house, with soft beds, lots of food and water. You see in my old life I lived in a cage and walked on wires, I also had to go to the bathroom in the same place I slept and ate, it was really gross. I like my life now but I still get scared sometimes, I never knew that there were doors or steps, until I came to live with my foster mom. I had also never been on a walk, so I am unsure about collars and leashes but I'm working on it and my mom tells me I am doing great! I am special needs because I need special people, people that will be patient and loving with me because I am still learning about how dogs are suppose to live. Men really scare me, I think I might learn to get used to them but in my old life the men were not very nice to me. I learn something new everyday,and my foster mom tells me that she is going to help me find a home of my own, a home for a special needs dog like me. So if you have lots of patience and love will you consider adopting a former puppy mill dog of your very own? There are a lot of us out there, still waiting for that special place, we may never be the perfect dog but we will give you everything we possibly can, in hopes you will just love us and care for us. I think I see a stick in the yard that needs chewing, thank you for listening about my life and I hope you will consider giving a former puppy mill dog a safe and happy life full of love.

Woof, Woof,

Benji the Teddy Bear

Hi all my name is Benji and it's my turn as Dog of the Week! I am so excited because the group that is taking care of me now the St. Louis Senior Dog Project just got their new website and I am featured in the banner! That got me all excited and I hope lot's of people look at my picture :)

So as a Dog of the Week I get to tell you a little bit about myself. About 5 months ago I got ditched at the pound by my previous owners because they said they were moving and there was no space for me in their new home. I wasn't really sure at first what was going on but when I realized I was at the pound I got really depressed. The people at the pound thought I may just die of sadness but a nice volunteer there tried to keep my spirits high and to get me out of there and in to a rescue. Then one day a volunteer from St. Louis Senior Dog Project came by the pound and guess who she saw? Me! I won't lie and say I knew exactly what was going on, nope I was kind of weirded out by all the moving and being in a home again, but after a couple of days I realized how lucky I was!

I am doing well in my current foster home and many of the volunteers of the group say I am a big teddy bear and that's probably because I am all fluffy :)

 I love going to the park and for walks but I am not a power pooch BOL (bark out loud) I mean you won't find me running a marathon anytime soon!
Check me out at the park! Yeah its nice to roll on the grass
I hope I find a forever home soon so if you can please share my profile from Petfinder on your facebook or twitter accounts, click here to go to Petfinder.
