Facts About Me
NYS Needs Better Dog Laws!
Chiffon was born about September 30, 2010 and weighs about 12 lbs. She is the sweetest thing, just a bit shy at first, and we are so happy that she made it here so we can find her a home that she has been cheated out of for her entire life! Chiffon (we call her Su-Su) came to us from a puppy mill right here in Western New York! Yes, it's legal in NY to stack caged dogs one on top of the other and the cages be just big enough so the dog can stand, turn around, have a bowl for food and a water source attached to the side of the crate and as for the waste…these dogs are standing on wire bottom cages so the waste can fall into the pan below like a rabbit hutch. This way the dog is only handled to be taken out of it's cage and placed with a breeding mate so they can produce cute product for pet store shelves. The buildings or barns they are housed in do not need to be heated or cooled. Because dog's feet are larger, than rabbits, and they have more weight (especially the Cocker breed) their feet become splayed and they can, throughout life, have occasional "puppy mill foot" where painful blisters appear between the toes and antibiotics are required to reduce the inflammation. We will be having their teeth cleaned, but sometimes they are so very bad that it will need to be repeated relatively often. We need a special human to come along to welcome this lucky girl who was released from the brutality of her captor. We know you are out there and we save them because we know that you will save them.
When rescued from the puppy mill, Su-Su came into our rescue very pregnant and on November 24th had her 2 healthy pups in a loving foster home. Her pups have been adopted, and now it's her turn! Su-Su has limited vision/eye sight out of her left eye, but appears to see mostly ok out of her right eye. Her vision issue is due to having untreated dry eye and she'll need daily drops for life. During spay surgery a lima bean mammary mass was found and removed. It was not biopsied as it was so small and had recently developed, it was entirely removed. We will be looking for a home with a secure fenced yard as well as another "normal" dog to help Su Su adjust to life outside of a mill. She is ready to start her new life of being loved and pampered with her very own and first forever family!
The Adoption Fee for this dog is $300.00.
Adoptions fees vary based on adoptability. In general our fees include spay/neuter, all age appropriate vaccines, Home Again micro-chipping & registration, worming & flea control – a "complete" pet. We accept CASH or Visa/Mastercard ONLY.
Joyful Rescues has no funding except for our adoption fees and miscellaneous donations. Pet care and vet bills are expensive – you must be ready to take on this financial (as well as emotional) responsibility.
YOU MUST BE AT LEAST 25 YEARS OF AGE TO ADOPT A DOG FROM JOYFUL RESCUES
We keep our pet list as up-to-date as possible. As soon as a pet is adopted, it is removed from the list. If a pet is still showing, it is still available for adoption.
