April 2009 Vicki and Maddy are two little Chihuahua's that were rescued from a puppymill on December 12, 2006. They are a bonded pair, and need to be adopted together. Vicki will be 13 years old in September of 2009. She is the more outgoing of the two. She is a long haired brown and white beauty with a personality to match. Vicki has limited eye sight from her many years in a mill with little vet care. I do beleive she can see shadows but that is about it right now. Her favorite pasttime is being cuddled up next to Maddy in one of the many pumpkin beds in the house. She will come for pets but will crouch when you go to pick her up. Once you have her, her little paws will bend so that she is clutching as if she never wants to let go. She really prefers belly rubs on the floor where she knows she can run if needed. She has been out of the puppymill for almost three years. Vicki has come a long way from her first day free. She will wander around without Maddy, but turns periodically to make sure she is within eye sight. She is potty pad trained, and will never miss the pad. She is a fair weather dog and will NOT go outside in the winter or cold months. She does love to run in the yard when it is a sunny, hot day. It gives me pure joy to see her having fun. This little girl deserves all that the world has to offer. Maddy is the more shy of them. She will be 14 years old in Decembet 2009. She is blonde in color, and short haired. She runs when you go to pet her and definitely does not like to get picked up. Maddy has the "worry" frown when she is scared and not comfortable with what is going on. She also is very much a barker, and will bark non stop when she is nervous. Maddy has had some problems since her rescue. She has a slipped disc in her neck that flairs up every so often. We have been very lucky in the last year with no problems. One good thing is she is not a runner nor a jumper. She is rather plump and short legged, so we need to make sure she does not do any unnecessary clmbing. Right now she is having some eye issues, that we are treating with Vetropolycin. Her eyes portrude, like most chihuahua's, so care needs to be had they do not get scratched. Maddy is potty pad trained. She is like her friend Vicki, and does not go outside in the winter or cold months. Maddy also is a poop eater. I have to make sure that I do a fast clean up, or Maddy feels it is her job to help me. lol Maddy does enjoy the sunshine and can be seen on nice days, basking in it outside. She is not as outgoing as Vicki and prefers to stay close to her friend. Both dogs are a joy to have in the house. They must be adopted to an all adult home. A stay at home mom and/or dad would be wonderful for them. Both will sit on your lap for hours, getting petted, if they could have their choice. These precious pups have been waiting a long time for a forever home. Seniors are wonderful dogs. Won't you open your heart to a Senior? You will not be sorry. If you have any quesitons about Vicki or Maddy, please email me, thier foster mom, at email@example.com Noselicks, Maddy and Vicki

Rescue Group Info...
Puppymillrescue was founded in May 1999.
It was formed because I felt there was a desperate need to have an organization to help the puppymill dogs get out of Missouri and escape what had been their fate for many years, death and worse!.
To my dismay, I discovered that most of the dog breed clubs would not help to support the rescue of mill dogs. I began by forming the PMRescue list and putting up a small website.
At the time I had Four dogs for adoption that I rescued from a Missouri auction with the paid help of a Missouri resident.
In December 1999, I applied for non-profit status as a corporation in the State of Florida. And with the Federal Government.
We now consist of a small board of directors (4) and a team of about 20 people who help on a daily basis. Each is a volunteer, not one person is paid for her services to PMR, other than our accountant and lawyer.
We consider ourselves a Grass Roots organization.
Our rescuers and Board members and Foster Mom's are the backbone of PMR.
Without their dedication to these dogs, all would be lost.
They work, from their own homes, helping and loving back to health puppymill dogs who have been dumped by puppy millers who no longer have any use for them, or dogs we rescued by buying their freedom a puppymill auction.
And so they........ the sore, pathetic, scared, shy, terrified bundles of fur are welcomed into our rescue and taken under our rescue angel's wings.
We have come a long way and are very grateful to each and every person who has given of themselves to help over 2000 of these dogs get a wonderful forever home.
For the ones who cannot speak for themselves, I thank you all for your loyalty and support.
Sincerely, Jean Kenney, Founder PuppymillRescue
