Little puppy mill refugee in Utah...

Okay, I was surfing Petfinder.com and found this little one...can anyone help? He's only 12 weeks old. What a cutie.

It looks like they broke up a puppymill in Salt Lake City.

I just emailed Heather at Wasatch Rescue...she says he is all Havanese...and is getting to the point where she can hold him; coming out of his shell...he is a little shy because he was in isolation for so long; poor little guy. She also said he is an absolute doll.

It looks as if Razor has been adopted [unless there's a mistake]. It says, "Havanese: An adopted dog in Salt Lake City, UT "

Maybe you helped find him a home.

Hi Starr;
I just emailed Heather at Wasatch Animal Rescue where Razor was...and asked if he was adopted. Waiting to hear! He is not on the Petfinder list anymore, but another Havi named "Toby" is on the list but without a picture. I asked Heather if he would have a picture posted soon.

Here's a picture of Toby... too cute.
He has not been adopted...but I guess Razor has. They might be brothers. Adoption fee is $450.

He's 12 weeks old and he's been neutered?

Maybe what they mean is the fee includes neutering. That's what the shelter here does. The shelter then pays the vet.

I saw three Hav pups from mills that are in a Akron, Ohio shelter, so sad. Hoping someone can help them as well. The Shelters name is One of a kind pets.

There are a lot of shelters and rescues that will not place a dog or puppy that has not been neutered. They just don't take any chances. In the best of all worlds, people would wait until an appropriate time, then get their animal neutered, but with rescues, if they have to err in one dirction or the other, they err in the direction of early neutering (and spaying, too) rather than take a chance that the new owners will let them have an "oops" litter.

There was an adorable rescue hound mix in Kodi's puppy kindergarten class, the same age he was, so about 11 weeks, who had been spayed long enough before that her incision was all healed and she was cleared for all activity. Not ideal maybe, but she did fine. It's probably the least of what those mill puppies have been through.
