Adult Yorkie Saved from Puppy Mill NEEDS A LOVING HOME!
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.

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.
