My dog Sasha was born in a puppy mill. She is a Bernese Mountain Dog, these are designer dogs that are worth a lot of money. The Puppy mill people were hoping that she would give birth so they could sell her puppies,unfortunately, she was infertile and couldn't get pregnant. The people planned to kill her and fortunately we rescued her, but this came at a price and a few weeks ago she died of cancer at the age of 5 years old. Her childhood in a puppymill took a toll on her life. This has empowered me to move forward with my project in memory of her. R.I.P baby girl, I love you.
I hope that this post gives you an idea on how these horrible places can destroy some of the most loyal, and amazing creatures in this world, I will not stand for this and I hope you agree with me, and keep following me on my journey to changing the world.

OK so lately I have been extremely busy working on research. I have been contacting pet stores such as Petsmart and Petco, and asking the about their dog adoptions that they host on saturday. I was shocked to find out that a few of these stores get the dogs from breeders. I then contacted a few kill shelters such as the Bainbridge Humane society and was very disappointed to hear that the kill the dogs because of sickness and space. These illnesses are treatable but I guess that they don't want to spend that much money on these perfectly good dogs.
