Subtitle: A Puppy Mill Survivor’s Story

Lucy Blue arrived at Second Chance Sheltie Rescue as a survivor of a “puppy mill”: a filthy facility where the “business philosophy” is to give breeding dogs as little care as possible in order to make as much profit as possible from their puppies. Puppy mill dogs often live out their lives in tiny cages, suffering from disease, injury, and near-starvation. Those who survive physically are often psychologically scarred: fearful, suspicious, frightened, stressed animals who alternately hide from, or lash out at, a world they cannot understand.
When Sheltie Rescue took Lucy in, the obvious questions was: “Who would ever want a dog like this?” The answer—Janice Mitchell. As Lucy began the long process of healing body and spirit, Janice started a diary to record Lucy’s progress, to note information that might be helpful to other rescuers, and sometimes, by her own admission, “to keep from pulling my hair out!” This is the story of Lucy, the dog no one would ever want, and of Janice, the woman who never gave up on her.
