Critter Chronicles: Vera

  • http-chronicle-northcoastnow-com-wp-content-uploads-2013-12-Vera-frienship-300x200

Vera is a puppy mill dog. Director Greg Willey ventured down to Amish Country to save Vera and many others. All need socialization, training and most of all love. Puppy Mill dogs are meant for breeding. They have no other use to the breeder. Many have never experienced being outside much less being in a loving home. It takes a special person or family to adopt one of these dogs. They will take many months to trust and be comfortable in a home setting. They are very scared but not nippy or mean. Many are seniors and there are many different breeds available. It's probably best if these dogs are adopted by an adult household or one with older children. Vera is living in a cage with Sydney, another senior Pomeranian.  They would love to go home together.  Vera and Sydney are getting very used to their surroundings and love the affection of the staff and volunteers.
