It’s terrifying to imagine that a breathing and a living thing can be locked up in a small cage in the basement during all its life. As terrifying as it may sound but such things still exist in puppy mills.
Meet B.B., a tiny helpless, and insecure poodle puppy that didn’t even know what sun was until she was rescued by The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) from the mill in North Carolina. After being bred over and over in the mill, the puppy eventually was taken to Cabarrus Animal Hospital where she met her future human Brenda Tortoreo, the receptionist of the hospital.
Scared, confused, and helpless – unfortunately these were the words to describe the tiny creature who immediately melted Brenda’s heart and that’s when she realized she was going to take the puppy home with her.
The strangest thing is that even after being set free the puppy wouldn’t run, just walk in circles. And how would she possibly know what running means if she spent all her life in that tiny cage, even deprived of the sunlight? However, the puppy is finally happy now and surrounded with love and care.
