A rather dirty one, at that. Meet Max, my American Eskimo. I just read a horrifying news story about a puppy mill rescue in Kennewick, Washington. There were 371 dogs living in a cess pool of a yard; some kept in shopping carts and other makeshift cages. It took an enormous amount of effort to get volunteers to the site and get the dogs out of there safely. I wish I could individually thank every person involved. It was a herioc effort.
The dogs are in bad condition but will put up for adoption once they are cleaned up and treated. Eskimos are lively and energetic; these rescues could use a happy ending (filled with life outside of a cage) for anyone interesting in adoption. For a list of shelters taking the dogs, check tricityherald.com and The Humane Society of the United States' website at humanesociety. org. Nancy
