Rescued from a puppy mill: Mona Lisa’s story

She was rescued by DRNA back in March along with about 50 other dogs from a terrible mill in West Virginia. She is 7 years old and had been used as a breeder and stuck in a tiny cage for all those years. The cages were piled up on top of each other, and the dog’s waste would drop down into the cage below…

When she first came to my home she bonded right away with my hyper 3 year old short-hair, Poppy. Poppy seems to know Mona needs extra help. At first Mona would hide, cringe, and literally scream when we came near her. I feel she still has a long way to go as she is still very skittish around my husband and strangers, but as you can see in her picture, she is always smiling, giving kisses, rolling on the ground, and LOVES to eat.
