Three years ago we adopted this sweet baby girl. We got her about 2 months before I started with Sseko, so she's basically my mascot. She was kept in a very bad puppy mill for about 5 1/2 years, has numbers tattooed in her ears, bred precious pups that were taken away from her and as a result was terrified of the world when we adopted her. But she's grown so much and in ways we didn't even think she would be able to. As of earlier this Fall she even jumps on the couch. Which, may sound obnoxious or even, duh that's what dogs do, but for June it's like a miracle. She even has her own spot on the couch that she gives a stare down to anyone if they decide to sit there when she wants to jump up 😂 She didn't know what treats were, so we kept trying to get her to eat human food. She didn't know what it was. Now she has a little brother who will bite you if you take his food and she sniffs the air and walks over when she smells food. So this week, we celebrate this damaged, but BRAVE, precious and beautiful dog. She may be "just" a dog to most people, but she reminds me how one can overcome their circumstances and learn to live again. And yeah, I'm sappy and named her #SojournerTruthWoodson because that woman was brave and bold and a hero (and so much more). .
The last picture is blurry, but it's June watching @lizbohannon share with a couple dozen people at my home June of '17. June obviously cares about empowerment and having dreams.
The overwhelming majority of Texas pet stores source from out of state breeders that are not regulated by the Texas Dog and Cat Breeder Act, escaping meaningful requirements for care and welfare.⠀
