Rescued Puppy Mill Dog Takes Its First Steps On Grass.

Rescued puppy mill dog Lizzy takes her first steps.From the “Puppy Mill Dog – Walks On Grass For The First Time” YouTube description:

“Lizzy spent 12 long years living in a small cage in a puppy mill. She never once touched the ground. National Mill Dog Rescue rescued her early in March 2013 and she immediately went to a loving home. This video shows her in the grass for the very first time. Prepare yourself for tears of joy!

Help us not post anymore videos like this by avoiding puppy mill dogs. Here are some tips for staying clear of puppy mill dogs from Cesar’sWay:

  • Avoid pet stores, newspaper ads, and great deals online!
    Many puppy mills supply local pet stores with false information. Remember Bandit from Season 2 of The Dog Whisperer? His website said that he was from a licensed breeder, but he turned out to be the product of a puppy mill, costing his new family thousands of dollars in vet bills and heartache over his life-threatening health and behavioral problems.
  • Visit the breeder and ask questions!
    Ask to see the entire facility where the dogs are bred and kept. Is it clean? Spacious enough? Ask to see the parent dogs as well. Does the breeder show hesitation to let you see the facility or to let you meet the other dogs who are being kept there? Or is the breeder willing to just sell one of his puppies to anyone who walks in off the street, sight unseen? Reputable breeders will want to make sure their puppies are going to good homes.
  • Adopt from a shelter or rescue instead!
    This is the safest solution. Rescues and shelters most often have the best interest of the animal at heart, and many of them are last chance adoptions. But remember: don’t adopt out of pity! Adopt based on your energy level and compatibility!

Humane Society’s ‘Seals Need Our Help’ Video.

Seals Need Our Help - HSIBelieve it or not, they’re still clubbing harp seal pups in Canada. The “Seals Need Our Help” video is a reminder that even though demand for products containing seal fur is down, and even banned in many countries, the hunt continues. Calling it a hunt is a stretch; it’s more like real-life Whac-A-Mole with a hakapik instead of a padded mallet.

We Need More Of This: Climate Change Explained By Hunters, Anglers, and Outdoor Enthusiasts.

Todd Tanner - Conservation Hawks.

“Let’s say you are walking down a trail in the wilderness with your wife and kids, and you come upon a grizzly sow, standing on a carcass. She charges, flat out. You’re in front of your family. What do you do? Just give up? Pretend it’s not happening? Let her maul you and everything your care about? Of course you don’t. You take action. That is how I see climate change. It’s real, it’s threatening everything we love. Not taking action is not an option.”
Todd Tanner, Conservation Hawks in Field & Stream

“Hunters, Anglers, and Climate Change” is the latest video from Peter Sinclair for the Yale Forum on Climate Change and the Media. Are hunters and anglers bellwethers? Most definitely. They see the year-to-year environmental changes to their favorite streams, forests, and wetlands firsthand. [CDCW]
