We warmly welcomed, Karina, an adult Shihtzu rescued from a puppy mill this past January. It broke our hearts to hear that Karina was cruelly forced to birth litter after litter until she was almost barren. Unfortunately, in these mills, the health, happiness and well-being of the animals is of no concern which sadly resulted in Karina developing diabetes and becoming blind. We were so happy to have rescued Karina from these terrible conditions.
Through a special diet and two daily insulin injections, her diabetes is manageable. With her horrific puppy mill past behind her, Karina is now being tenderly cared for by her Foster Mother Maria until the right adopter takes her home to be forever cherished. With the help of our generous Sponsors, Karina will live out the rest of her days as healthy and happy as possible.
