This video might just break your heart. Both because it’s so wonderful to watch this dog walk on grass for the first time. And out of sadness, because she spent twelve long years in nothing but a tiny cage inside a puppy mill.

Mill Dog Rescue posted the following video on youtube writing that, “Lizzy spent 12 long years living in a small cage in a puppy mill. She never once touched the ground. National Mill Dog Rescue rescued her early in March 2013 and she immediately went to a loving home. This video shows her in the grass for the very first time. Prepare yourself for tears of joy!”

If she spent that many years in the mill, we can only assume Lizzy was used as a breeding dog. We hope she’s able to spend the rest of her days enjoying the grass, the sun and all the wonderful smells the world has to offer.

  • Thanks so much for showing the National Mill Dog Rescue video of Lizzy walking on grass for the first time in her 12 years of life. She is with a wonderful foster family awaiting her very own forever home. NMDR has saved over 7,000 puppy mill dogs since 2007. They are a wonderful organization who gives many, many dogs the opportunity to finally walk on grass…and have a name of their own!! http://www.milldogrescue.org.


Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
