Just keep in mind that little Sunshine is a puppymill rescue so she will come with special issues. Puppymill rescues are often unable to be completely housebroken since they have gotten used to living in their own urine and feces. They can have habits like spinning and self mutilating from being confined most of their lives. Most are very fearful and not socialized to humans.

It takes a very special and patient person to rehab a mill dog, one who realizes not only their potential, but their limitations. I personally would recommend that anyone considering rescuing a mill dog do it through Northcentral Maltese so you would have the support and knowledge of their wonderful and experienced volunteers.

I'm wondering if NCMR is the resuce they're talking about when they say that they are posting for a rescue group, since one of NCMR's key volunteers is in Ohio.

Are you sure she is a puppymill rescue? I may have missed it but I didn't see anything about the dog's history. ??

I don't believe this is a mill puppy because she is advertised as a "baby", so if she is, she wasn't there very long. Mill dogs usually are older bitches that are retired or not producing enough pups, etc., I believe.

The way I interpret the listing is that a rescue organization has this pup and WolfSpirit's Animal Shelter is advertising the pup for them.
