I have a Rescued Cardigan Welsh Corgi, she's been such a sweetie. So glad to read that these dogs were found, and rescued. Thanks, Cher for this.

Anyone who's ever seen a Corgi run agility trials knows these little dogs have HUGE ''heart."

Puppy mills are horrific. Never raise a puppy, dog, kitten or cat or any other animal in conditions that you would not live in yourself, with love, comfort, all needs met with a sense of responsibility to the animal involved.

Skipper has stolen my heart! I'm so glad to hear that these dogs were rescued from a puppy mill! But there are so many in puppy mills that still live in such pain and misery every day of their lives!
TY Cher!
