Eve has been adopted! The day Eve (now known as Peggy) has dreamed of the whole first year of her life has finally come. From spending her first year of life in a puppy mill, then on to the auction block to finally be rescued, Peggy now has her very own family. And what a wonderful family she has. Peggy has two skin brothers and a skin sister to give her all the love and attention she needs. Peggy‘s mom had Peggy’s room all set up and she had awesome raised bowls and pink gear because Peggy is a tiny girlie girl. This girl was so very difficult to let go, but her new family will give her all the love she deserves. Peggy has hit the jackpot and she knew it the moment she walked into her new home. Thank you, Colleen and Kendall, for giving this special girl a home.
She was sold at a puppy mill auction in the Midwest wearing a tag that identified her as Bulldog #238. Eve is one of the lucky ones that was placed on the table, lifted high in the air and advertised as being “Bred Before Sale” and was bought by Lone Star Dog Ranch where she will never be bred again in her life. The bidding was fierce for Eve because she just turned 1 year old in September, but being sold to another mill was not going to happen on Saturday for Eve. Eve was going to be set free from a life of living in a wire cage and birthing litter after litter from a puppy mill that is known to be one of the worst in the United States. As expected, Eve trembles when she sits, avoids eye contact, refuses to take a step on her own, and will dart and hide every chance she gets. But today is the first day of freedom for Eve, where she was known as Bulldog #238, a number that identified her, but did not define her. Much thanks and appreciation the Lone Star Dog Ranch for setting French Bulldogs, A Schnauzer. A Dogue de Bordeaux, and 3 Bulldogs free that day, and for sharing with us.
11/12/17 Update: Eve had her first bath after having her spay stitches out. She is so soft and beautiful! Eve wanted red for her collar, harness and leash and she is a gorgeous lady in red. She walked on her leash, following her fur sister. She was ready to get back inside her house though, in typical mill mama fashion. Eve’s eyes are shining bright nowadays!
12/7/17 Update: Foster girl Eve has found herself a comfy pillow. Eve has settled into her foster home nicely. She has left behind her puppy mill days and is enjoying a world of soft beds, toys and, most of all, people. Eve loves her humans. Eve likes to spend some down time sleeping in her crate, but her favorite activity is being with family. Eve runs outside to do her business, but runs back in the house quickly so she won’t miss out on anything. She is a sweet, precious little fur ball of energy.
12/17/17 Update: Foster girl Eve is looking for presents under the tree and modeling her holiday dress and pajamas. Eve loves living in a home though she still has some shyness and fears left over from her puppy mill days. Eve loves to play with children and is always either in front of you or on your heels looking for attention. Being just over a year old, Eve still has puppy in her and loves chewing…cords, briefcases, Crocs (her favorite). Very sturdy toys are a must. Having spent her first year of life in a cage, Eve prefers to have the run of the house with her humans. Foster mom stays home so Eve is not crated all day. She likes sleeping in her cozy crate and naps in her crate should foster mom need to run errands. Eve loves her fur sisters but would not be happy living with a dominant dog.
