dog rescued from puppy mill

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.
