    Breeder dumps are some of the most heartbreaking rescues of all. These dogs often have no life experience outside a cage and have trouble fending for themselves.

With the authors permission, this is a repost of the definition of "rescue"

    In rescue the definition of help varies. Sometimes it's helping a family by providing them with the resources to train their unruly dog. Sometimes it's helping provide medical care or food when a family hits a hard patch in life. Sometimes it's helping to find a loving home for a dog who needs to be rehomed for whatever reason. Sometimes it's finding a dog who was dumped on the street, making them well and placing them in an amazing home where they never have to worry about food and shelter again. And sometimes, like last night, it's finding that sweet soul who is in pain and was left on the streets, providing them with hamburgers to fill their tummy on the way to the vet, showing them a day filled with love and kindness and belly rubs, and when they are in so much pain and they are so sick, showing them that someone cared enough to hug them and love on them and stay with them while they crossed the rainbow bridge. Sometimes, in rescue, helping them is ending their pain and suffering.
    You know, I think the rescue went the way it was supposed to go just a little sadder. You were supposed to rescue this beautiful creature and help her cross the Bridge painless instead of in pain and all alone. Thank you for rescuing her, she'll be waiting for you I'm sure. Thank you to all rescuers.

    That is just so sad. I just don't get why one would just dump a dog at all when they can turn it over to a shelter or a rescue. Then to be breed and give loving care to pups all your life only to be left alone to die at the side of the road. Breaks my heart!!!!

    Stories like this, brings about the thoughts of someone's signature I read the other day….. Having a License to own a dog should require more than writing a check. Thank God for Karma…..

    Once again, Bev you are an Angel, and my héro. Thank you for everything you gotta take a little time A little time to think things over I better read between the lines In case I need it when I'm older.

    Now this mountain I must climb Feels like a world upon my shoulders And through the clouds I see love shine It keeps me warm as life grows colder

    In my life there's been heartache and pain I don't know if I can face it again Can't stop now, I've traveled so far To change this lonely life

    I wanna know what love is I want you to show me I wanna feel what love is I know you can show me .

    I'm gonna take a little time A little time to look around me, I've got nowhere left to hide It looks like love has finally found me

    In my life there's been heartache and pain I don't know if I can face it again I can't stop now, I've traveled so far To change this lonely life

    I wanna know what love is I want you to show me I wanna feel what love is I know you can show me I wanna know what love is I want you to show me And I wanna feel, I want to feel what love is And I know, I know you can show me

    if she was used as a puppy mill breeder they often care very little about the dog. That's why they dump them on the side of the road!!

    My kids just said yesterday,"how could someone hurt an animal. I could not live with myself." Your role modeling for us and our kids is a form of rescue as well.


    I'm a good girl, I promise
