BABY – A TRUE STORY OF A PUPPY MILL DOG
A Rare Breed of Love is a book that was inspired by “Baby,” an abused puppy mill survivor who lived through a 9-year ordeal in order to become a “national spokesdog” to raise awareness about cruelty in the dog breeding industry.
On the day Baby was scheduled to be killed- because she had gotten too old to breed- she was rescued by a passing stranger who was dubbed the “Drive-by Angel.”
Eventually Baby found a forever home with the book’s author Jana Kohl, who was inspired to tell the world about her ordeal and hopefully reform this cruel industry. God Bless Baby & Jana and all the other puppy mill dogs out there waiting to be rescued.read story
