Most weekends, Todd and I make the drive out to Monika’s Doggie Rescue to walk and play with the puppies that have been given a second chance at life.

Many of the puppies come from puppy farms- and if you saw the state of the former mothers who are forced to churn out litter after litter, you would never shop at a pet store again. Their bellies are engorged from years of neglect and abuse, and now are sentenced to a life of diminished movement as their bellies hang down to touch the ground.

Some of the puppies come from the puppy mills, who have never left a cage before, so the experience of 100 other barking puppies and strangers coming in to pet and feed them is entirely overwhelming.

The heartwarming thing is that despite all the neglect and abuse, we have never encountered a bad soul among the many puppies we have walked. Some of them are scared, or a little weird but always sweet and wanting to play!!

I have decided from now on every time we walk a puppy I will put their info up here in the hopes someone will adopt them!

So this weeks puppy is PlutoPup, a super cute, full of beans puppy who just wants some love and attention! He is still a young pup so would be easily trained and is very friendly. He would definitely need someone who could walk him every day!

If you want to adopt PlutoPup head here!
