Meet Noelle

Timid but sweet Noelle is a ~6 year old eskie rescued from a puppy mill with her most recent (and final!) litter of pups. Her pups have all been adopted and now mommy is ready for a home of her own . She is skittish but wants to trust people and loves other dogs. She is a small eskie at only about 15 pounds full grown and is a gentle, dainty little girl. Please submit an application if you are interested.
This dog is one of many rescued through Best Friends' "Pup my Ride" Puppies aren't Products program (visit their website for more info on puppymills). They have rescued over 1000 dogs from lives in midwest puppy mills and transported them to rescues like ours. All have been neglected physically and emotionally all of their lives and will need special homes to help them heal. Many were filthy and matted, with rotting teeth and ear infections. A few are very friendly and outgoing and enjoy any human attention; others are more shy and will need work and patience to learn to trust.

These poor dogs have spent their whole lives in wire cages, churning out litter after litter of puppies to make $$$ for their greedy owner. They have never received proper vet care, been walked on a leash, or had a soft bed to sleep on. They lived in filthy conditions and were not properly groomed. These are the lucky ones- we were able to rescue them and make sure they will get the loving homes they deserve. Many more like them are simply shot or drowned by their owners when they are no longer needed, or sold at auctions to other millers where they will continue to be bred.

These dogs are all understandably nervous and confused in their new setting, but are sweet-natured and want to be loved. They are seeking calmer homes that will give them time to adjust and patiently help them learn to live in a real home. They get along with other dogs and generally do best in a home with another friendly social dog to help them come out of their shells. They are obviously not housebroken- some learn pretty quickly once on a schedule while others may require more patience or need to be wee-wee pad trained. Please contact us if you would like to open your home to a puppy mill survivor.

Most importantly, please remember the stories of these dogs and others like them. Every time someone buys a puppy from a pet store, breeding kennel, or broker, they are supporting the cruel treatment of their parent dogs and encouraging more dogs to be bred. Please refer anyone looking for a puppy to shelters/rescues in their area or to and encourage them to adopt a homeless pet.

We do not have a shelter- all our pets are in foster homes and can be seen by appointment only during the week, or at our weekly pet adoptions every Sunday at the Animal Clinic of Morris Plains from 12:30 to 3PM at 3009 Route 10 East next to 5 Star Car Wash (formerly Boulder Car Wash) in Morris Plains (Denville on GPS). To help us better match a pet to your household, we request you fill out an application on our homepage and copy and paste it into an email, or print it and bring it to our adoption day when you come. Local inquiries only please- we do not do long distance adoptions.
