PUPPY MILL DOGS SPEAK!
Happy Stories and Helpful Advice

Says Dr. Temple Grandin, author of Animals in Translation and Animals Make Us Human:

 

Chris provides lots of practical information that will be extremely useful for anyone working with breeding dogs rescued from puppy mills.

 

Puppy Mill Dogs SPEAK! gives voice to dogs previously used as breeders in puppy mills – the adult males and females kept captive all their lives to produce those cute puppies in the pet stores. Many puppy mill breeder dogs cannot speak: Breeders cruelly “de-bark” them to keep them quiet and undetected. Author, pet behavior consultant, and dog trainer Chris Shaughness gives voice to these animals, their rescuers, and adopters.

 

“The first dog that I knew was a rescued breeder dog was a young Golden Retriever who had just been brought in from the puppy mill farm,” Chris explains. “When a leash was placed on her, she dropped straight to the ground. It was like she had no legs. She was frozen in terror, and went between pancaked and crawling on the ground to whirling around on the leash, trying to escape it. It was so far away from what a dog should be – the happy, waggy-tailed Golden Retriever that you’d picture in your family home.”

 

Can breeder dogs overcome such abusive beginnings and learn to live and love as family pets? SPEAK! shares the inspirational stories of several brave, resilient dogs and the families who adopted them – patient, loving heroes who serve as bright, shining examples of unconditional love. Chris marvels, “I have an obligation to pass along words spoken by these adopters: ‘It’s one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done, but certainly one of the most rewarding.'”

 

SPEAK! further details and explains many behavior and health issues typically presented by these dogs and the puppies they produce, and provides compassionate, practical advice for overcoming these problems and other training issues common to all dogs.

 

Each year, hundreds of thousands of puppy mill puppies are sold in U.S. pet stores and other retail outlets. No other book explains the realities and consequences of how these dogs are mass-produced. Puppy Mill Dogs SPEAK! gives voice to the voiceless, and shares the cry “adopt, don’t buy” with everyone.
