Meet Liberty Ann

The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap:

Special blessing to Pack Leader in Dogs for all the wonderful work they do on behalf of dogs. This is a wonderful site and I’m in love with Liberty Ann, one of their rescue kids.

Originally posted on Stories from a Pack Leader:

Liberty came to us from a puppy mill in Texas. She was but 1 of over 200 Rottweilers kept in inhumane conditions and bred repeatedly for profit. A short video done by the Houston SPCA can be seen here: Video  Also the raid was on a episode of Houston Animal Cops called “Frozen”.

It was the end of March 2011 before the last group of Rottweilers were transported out to rescues. Liberty was in this group. This is how she looked on the day she arrived after 2 months of regular meals in the Houston SPCA.

Liberty had no idea what a toy was or what was expected of her. From…

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives.

    What are those people thinking? Animals are not toys to be abused or neglected. Thank goodness for caring people who takes good care of other animals.

  5. wonderful angels who care for animals. How can that be allowed?

    • Yes, thank goodness for the compassionate hearted people that help animals and us humans when we need it. In some places this can’t be allowed and is illegal but then not a high priority with legal enforcement and overburdened systems. That’s why advocates for animals are so important and valued because it is they who bring attention to these issues, usually through the press which brings pressure to bear.
      Thanks so much for stopping by. I’ll be thinking of you today with your sweetie and mom mode Friday.

    She is a lovely dog. It breaks my heart when I read about puppy mills.

    • I agree with you on that, Clowie. Tazzie was from a puppy mill and it took us years to undo the abuse in her. In the end she lived an extraordinary life to the ripe old age of 15+ which is ancient for a rottie. This beauty here reminded me of her plus she looks like our Max. Pulled at my heart strings.

    Angels for animals. I am an animal lover (especially dogs) and we need more loving people to care!!

    • Thank you, Judy. I can assure you, you have already helped get some tails wagging at the shelter I donate all my profits to. From spending some time at your site I see you have so many talents that come from a beautiful heart, how you communicate to other, how you post to raise awareness of AIDS, and so many other things, have not gone unnoticed on this person here. It is no surprise you’re also a dog lover.
