8/28/17 – Annie just spent a week in a temp foster home while her foster was on vacation. Her sister was fostered there and the comparison is that Annie is having a greater challenge with her new life than Veronica, who is now adopted, had. Annie will need some additional time to come to terms with life. She was comforted by the resident male boxer, and gained trust over the week for her temp mom, but most new humans are still too scary for her.
It is absolutely a crime what puppy mills do to these dogs… and her’s is supposedly a legal one. But mill survivors are brave and Annie will get her forever home in due time, just like Veronica and Gallagher, and all the boxers we have rescued from mills.
Meet Annie!!!!! Annie was rescued by one of our volunteers from an Amish puppy mill. Annie and her sister Veronica (also listed on our website) are littermates. The mill owner purchased them both at an auction when they were just 1 year of age. Both sisters were born in a puppy mill and have never known anything but that life of horror for the past 3 years. Annie and Veronica both came from the same mill that Gallagher (AABR adopted 8/17) came from.
Annie is learning about all the things that life has to offer outside of the mill. She has touched grass for the very first time. She has seen the sky for the very first time. and most importantly, she has known love, kindness and respect for the very first time. Annie is slowly learning to trust humans and is making steady strides in her patient and loving foster home. She is being fostered in a home that has 2 other huskies and Annie is learning all about life and love from her fur siblings and foster mom.
As with most mill dogs, Annie will need a home with another dog to help her gain confidence. A secured yard with a 6 ft fence is also required as Weimaraners are known athletes. Stay tuned for more exciting updates as Annie gets to explore living life to the fullest.
