This beautiful girl is Precious. She is a Puggle (beagle/pug mix) about 3-5 years old. Precious is the victim of an animal hoarder that had over 100 dogs seized from one home in South Carolina. She was being bred over and over again and neglected. Her most recent pups were still trying to nurse off of her at 7 months old! Despite her tragic beginning, Precious loves life. She is very happy to with people, enjoys playing with other dogs, and is great with kids of all ages. Precious is crate trained and house trained too. She is great off leash and loves to go for walks. Precious would be best in a home without cats though, she finds it a great hobby to chase them. She is spayed, micro chipped, and up to date on her vaccines. If you think you can offer her a home, please contact us.
Did you know: It is thought that there are 250,000 victims of animal hoarders per year. Hoarding is one of the most shocking forms of animal cruelty. It affects tens of thousands of animals - mostly cats and dogs - in communities everywhere. Hoarders keep abnormally large numbers of animals but do not provide even the most basic care. Animal victims of hoarders typically suffer horribly as a result, and, unlike most other forms of companion animal cruelty, their misery can go on for years. The sometimes hundreds of dog or cat victims of a single hoarder generally show signs of abuse such as severe malnutrition, untreated medical conditions including open sores, cancers, and advanced dental and eye diseases, and severe psychological distress. Hoarders normally do not recognize their problem and often feel they are helping their animals rather than hurting them.
