Jack / Shih Tzu Mixes: The girls

The call came from Furever Friends Rescue of Western New York that they had many animals coming from a puppy mill. What could we take?

We were getting pretty full with dogs like Walter and Tashi, but we agreed to take two puppy mill girls who would need time, patience and love to learn to trust again.

Allura and Delena are a mother daughter pair who came to stay at the sanctuary, until we could place them in a foster home.


Allura is five years old and has known little than being locked in a cage.

Her mama Delena was a house dog before being sentenced to live in a box.

Both girls are shy, fearful and will take a great deal of time and patience for them to love again, the good news is they are already showing signs of interest in their surrounding and in the other animals at the sanctuary.

Both dogs have been spayed, vaccinated, heartworm negative, had dentals and have been treated for fleas and worms.

We’d like to find patient loving foster or forever homes where these girls could continue to love. They do not need to be adopted together, but puppy mill dogs always do better in a home with other dogs.

They need to learn what it is to be a dog and they need a dog to teach them to sniff, bark, seek affection and learn where to potty.

If you’d like to be a foster home or assist with socializing these two girls please fill out a volunteer applications from our documents section.

It takes many hands to heal.

We have committed to bringing in three more mill dogs in the coming months, so please consider becoming a foster or forever home for a dog in need.
