Puppy Mill Dog Rescued From Euthanasia Gets Second Chance At Life

It shouldn’t be said, but people shouldn’t support puppy mills. They are reckless, careless and cause immense animal suffering – not to mention contributing to the ever-growing overpopulation problem.

Because puppy mills and backyard breeders use clever ways to avoid detection, it’s important to adopt directly from a shelter. Irresponsible breeders will sell dogs on Craigslist, eBay, Facebook Marketplace, and directly to pet stores. Their end goal is always the same: to maximize profits above all else, including animal welfare.

When an adorable Cocker Spaniel named Reese fell seriously ill, it should have been a horrible thing, but it was actually what saved his life. You see, Reese was supposed to be used as a breeder for a puppy mill, but she came down with a disease common to puppy mill dogs: parvovirus.

As she was on the verge of death, her owners didn’t think she would be profitable, so they were going to have her euthanized. It’s common practice in puppy mills to discard breeding dogs when they’re no longer profitable, and Reese was already at that point, even though she was just a puppy.

Fortunately, veterinary ranch stepped in to give him a second chance at life. The ranch’s Dr. Judd began an intensive care routine, which included fluids, antibiotics and round-the-clock care. It took a lot of work and patience, but they were able to bring her back from the gates of death. !

After a week of treatment, Reese began to recover and was almost ready to start her new life. All she needed was a forever family and that’s exactly what she found.

Watch Reese’s recovery and transformation in the video below:
