Hundley is one of the 29 dogs recently purchased an an auction for a closing puppy mill. Hundley is now enjoying the life of luxury in his current foster home and ready to find his forever home. Since being at his foster home he has been neutered, had all but 2 teeth removed and been vaccinated. Up next on the to do list is to have him chipped. All of that and he is still a happy-go-lucky little guy who loves to snuggle with his foster mom.
It comes at a cost
Getting these dogs out of the puppy mill situation is a very rewarding experience, but unfortunately it comes at a cost for Last Hope. All of the dogs were purchased at auction and had to be neutered or spayed. Most of the dogs required extensive dental work, many of them having to have most of their teeth removed because they were in such bad shape. Some had eye issues that have to be taken care of as well. They all also required vaccinations, food, flea & tick medicine and heart worm preventative medication.
