A puppy mill is like a nightmare existence for dogs and puppies. These precious animals are either locked up for life until they die, or sold to the highest bidder. They are trapped and forced to breed in order to provide litter after litter for their owners. The puppies that are bred here are usually sick and die young.

Yorkies are a breed that is only around 100 years old. Before that they simply didn’t exist. They had to be specially bred by three dogs to become what they are today. They are originally from Yorkshire, England and were bred specifically to catch rats in mills as well as mines. They can be stubborn at times and need to be kept warm.
