You’re about to meet an inspiring pup named Joel, a Cocker Spaniel who spent the majority of his life behind bars, repeatedly forced to breed as a puppy mill “father.”
In 2013, Joel was finally rescued by the wonderful folks at the National Mill Dog Rescue. When Joel was first rescued, he was found in very poor health. Since his long fur had never been trimmed, his body was covered in filthy, heavy and matted dreadlocks.
It’s an absolute miracle that he survived under these conditions.
As one of Joel’s rescuers holds back the tears, she explains the horror of puppy mills like the one in which Joel was found. She says those who pay big bucks for young “purebred” pups should know that their parents may look and be treated a lot like Joel.
By the end of the video, I guarantee you’ll be shocked by Joel’s transformation.
After getting his first grooming in years, the National Mill Dog Rescue set him up with a professional photoshoot, and he looks completely unrecognizable.
Please SHARE Joel’s story to bring awareness to other puppy mill dogs who need help.
