Dog Saved from “Nightmare” House

April Livingston | December 29th, 2018

Things were truly terrible for the little dog and his fellow dogs, too. The little poodle mix had no name and was terrified and incredibly dirty. He lived in a barn stall in New Jersey in a puppy mill. His fur was matted and he was living in piles of mud and feces. All of the dogs in the facility were covered in urine and feces and had lived in that terrible environment their entire lives. Rescuers were called to the facility to remove over 130 dogs living in filth. The operation was so large that several rescue groups, including the Atlantic County Canines (ACC). When the groups arrived, they found that 40 dogs had already died and were being stored in a freezer. The smell in the home was so overpowering that people could not go inside without wearing face masks.

The facility was out of control: the dogs were kept in filth and bred so the owner could sell the puppies. However, most of the dogs had no vaccinations, grooming or spayed or neutered. There were all kinds of breeds there, from small dogs to larger dogs like Dobermans. The ACC took in eight of the little dogs and one in particular, a poodle mixed they named Beaker, was in particularly terrible shape. He couldn’t even walk or stand. Worst of all, his entire body was caked with feces and dirt and he was clearly in pain. The moment he arrived at the rescue he was given a bath and each of the mats in his fur was carefully removed. Underneath, he had a beautiful coat of white fur.

Each of the dogs seemed so relieved to get a bath, but they clearly have issues with trusting humans. After all they have gone through, they are scared of being touched and need someone with plenty of patience. They have a ways to go, but all the dogs are moving in the right direction.
