Spending 12 Years In A Puppy Mill, She’s Never Felt Love. Now At 17, She’s Enjoying Her New Life

When she was found, she was in extremely bad shape. She was malnourished, had leishmania, glaucoma in one eye, ingrown nails, and no muscles so she could barely walk. She received immediate treatment and was eventually adopted in the Netherlands. She went to her forever home in early 2011.
