How can adopting a dog improve my health?

Adopting a puppy mill survivor can be a challenging yet exceptionally rewarding experience. Prior to being rescued, our dogs spend their entire lives in small wire cages with only one purpose in life; to produce puppies. In most cases, they have had very little human contact and as a result, they may take quite a bit of time adjusting to life as a family member. Above all else, puppy mill survivors need time and patience while they are learning to adjust to a new, exciting and sometimes intimidating world. The good news is, most puppy mill survivors do heal, do learn to trust, do housetrain and leashtrain and do become joyful family members. For many of them, the adjustment period is fairly quick (a month or so), for others, it will take more time. In all cases, time, patience and love are key ingredients to developing the very special bond that you will experience when adopting a puppy mill survivor.
