Adult Yorkie Saved from Puppy Mill NEEDS A LOVING HOME!

Pet of the Week: Meet Mali: Mali endured cruelty and neglect as a puppy mill mom for at least a decade before she was rescued last year. Now, she needs the security and love of a forever family to live out her golden years in peace. Call 931-503-8300 for details.

 CLARKSVILLE, TENN. — The life of a puppy mill dog can be hell on earth. Unscrupulous breeders stack wire cages full of dogs half a dozen high, meaning that the dogs in all but the top row are relentlessly subjected to the falling excrement from the dogs above.
In addition, puppy mill dogs are often treated roughly, fed poorly and denied medical care of any kind.

That was the sad story for Mali, a Yorkshire Terrier rescued from a puppy mill in Missouri. Mali was taken in by Inge Irby who runs Clarksville’s Second Chance & Happy Tails, a non-profit, no-kill, small dog rescue. Local veterinarians estimated that Mali is at least 12 years old, but puppy mill dogs’ ages are notoriously hard to peg because neglect and insufficient nutrition lead to tooth loss.

My yorkie Quit chewing bones

For the first 2-3 years, my Yorkie LOVED bones. The bigger the better!  She would chew and chew and chew for hours. I realize she was teething a lot that first year, but she  continued loving them.

Then at about 4 years she sort outgrew it.  Now she has a few bones laying around, which she hides and moves from time to time, but RARELY sits and chews.

Has any other Yorkie owners had similar experiences?

American Kennel Club May Avoid Russia in 2016

The American Kennel Club has called on the FCI to move the World Dog Show from Russia where it is scheduled to take place in 2016, because of Russia's human rights abuses against gay people.

KalterHere's the letter, via

Dear Rafael,
One of the most compelling aspects of the human-canine bond – cherished internationally more than ever before – is the fact that our dogs love us unconditionally. Dogs do not discriminate. Gender, race, sexual orientation and other status do not enter the equation of responsible pet ownership. That is why the American Kennel Club and our constituency are puzzled and disappointed by the decision to allow Russia to host the 2016 World Dog Show. The proliferation of anti-gay and lesbian laws in Russia today is both disturbing and shocking to our community. The choice of this country as a venue for such a prestigious dog show flies in the face of the ideals of the human-canine bond. 

On behalf of the American Kennel Club, our member clubs, and the American purebred dog fancy, we urge you to move the 2016 World Dog Show from Russia to a nation that respects and upholds human rights for all its citizens. The international dog community deserves to enjoy the World Dog Show in a place that stands for freedom and equal rights for all. AKC cannot and will not support participation in the 2016 World Dog Show if it is held in Russia. 

As exhibitors, breeders, handlers and trainers, we teach our dogs many things. But there is no denying, they teach us too. Our bond with dogs is not defined by the type of person who holds the leash. We cannot support competition in an environment where tolerance does not exist. 

Yours respectfully,
Alan T. Kalter (pictured)
Chairman of the Board
Dennis B. Sprung
President and CEO

Allan Reznik, the Editor-in-Chief of Dog Channel, also announced that a scheduled feature on Russia for its November 2016 issue would be pulled:

A boycott of the Olympic Games is being called for and with the World Dog Show scheduled for Moscow in 2016 the FCI is facing pressure to change its venue unless these violations of basic human rights are rescinded. AKC President Dennis Sprung and Chairman Alan Kalter issued a courageous statement protesting Russian President Putin’s anti-gay law. 

We have many gay breeders, exhibitors, handlers and judges proudly participating in our sport worldwide. In light of Russia’s violation of these basic human rights, and given the strides that have been made recently in the USA with respect to equal rights, DOMA defeat, etc., we at Dogs in Review feel it would be inappropriate to feature Russia in our November International Issue. We are not feeling particularly celebratory toward that country. Moreover, we urge our American judges with invitations to officiate in Russia to reconsider their assignments, at a time when visitors traveling there could be arrested and detained, with the blessing of the Russian government.
