Maggie came from a pet store. I didn't realize she was from a puppy mill until she got sick the next morning and we went straight to my vet. She had giardia. It took months to clear this up, but once she was in my arms, nothing would have made me take her back to the store. She is why I volunteer for a beagle rescue. After becoming educated on puppy mills I wanted to do something to help beagles in need of good homes. Maggie has turned out to be a great dog and I am not sorry we got her, I am only sorry that I helped the puppy mills and pet store to profit from their mistreatment of animals.
