All of our pets are special! They are all looking for the same thing.....a FOREVER home. A family to call their own.
Some have greater needs than others. Few are house trained ...most are not. Most of our dogs are puppy mill dogs saved from the horrible conditions they have lived in since birth. A few are shelter dogs which we have no background on and some are surrendered by their owners for one reason or another.
Please consider giving a rescued pet a home! They will give you more love than you can ever ask for.
We now have a branch set up on the East coast. . Our east coast branch is Waggin Tails Small Breed Rescue. We have wonderful foster homes in Baltimore and VA area who work with our rescues on potty training and learning to live indoors as a member of the family.

Who We Are
Waggin Tails Pomeranian and English Bulldog Rescue and Waggin Tails Small Breed Rescue specializes in puppy mill dog rescues. We take in dogs from puppy mills, commercial kennels, backyard breeders, and some kill shelter dogs as well as some owner surrenders when space is available.
We work hard to build a working relationship with millers and some breeders to free dogs from cage environments at a very early age. These dogs have had little to no human socialization. They are rarely fed nutritious food and seldom get clean, fresh water. They live day to day in their own feces. They get very minimal vet care only in dire straights. They get no regular vaccinations or monthly heart worm or flea/tick prevention.
When dogs are released we work hard to get them the best care possible to make them healthy again. This includes vaccinations, wormings, dentals, spay/neuter and anything else they need.
Socialization is extremely important for them. This does take time. Some come around in just a few weeks while others can take years, some months and some never recover.
Please understand adopting a puppy mill survivor takes much work and patience. They have to be taught everything as if they were a puppy learning. If you are not ready for the amount of work they take please reconsider your decision to adopt a puppy mill survivor.
Adopting a friend
Adoptions are not done on the spot. Adoptions can take a few weeks to finalize. There is a nominal adoption fee. All of our pets are spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, wormed and have been heart worm tested if age appropriate. Some dogs have had other vetting that is needed such as dentals.
