Mary Haight from Dancing Dog Blog has started a petition to urge Petland USA to stop selling pets. Petland Canada already has. Together with the folks behind Be The Change for Animals, bloggers are rallying to spread the word so that Petland will fire the puppy mills and quit selling pets.
There are plenty of great pets waiting for loving homes at rescue organizations and from responsible breeders. So today we're focusing on a sweet pup who was rescued from a puppy mill by the folks at Havanese Rescue.
Hallie is about 6 years old and is a sturdy 14 pound Hav-mix. She was rescued from a puppy mill in March of 2011 and has lived with her foster mom since April. Mostly red in color with silver tips on her ears, she is a very pretty girl who grows prettier as her hair grows longer.
Hallie has a mellow and submissive personality with no need to be an alpha dog. She gets along well with other dogs. She is shy and a bit skittish and will need some one-on-one attention and training to get her completely over her fear of humans and normal household activities, such as visitors and cleaning. Although she runs away when approached, she is very curious. And when she is picked up, even seems to enjoy being petted and held. She likes to be within close proximity of her human where she can keep her eyes on what is going on in the house.
She is such a sweetie and she deserves a great home.
