The first thing that popped into my mind when I saw the headline was inbreeding. Poor little pups--all to make a buck.

This is what happens when a breed gets popular and people put profit ahead of breed standards.

I am glad they decided to save the dogs instead of euthanize them. Dogs from puppy mills have suffered so much already.

It is amazing how far things have come. So glad to see that these pups, and others can have such quality of life. In the past, vets would recommend that they be put to sleep.

A dachsund in my town lost the use of his hind legs and his owner made a little cart for him. That is great when people do so much for disabled pets.

These poor dogs are just one more sad example of irresponsible puppy mills breeding for profit. I'm so glad to hear they are getting the attention and care they deserve.

They make these carts for animals that lose their legs or suffer paralysis especially of back limbs also. Sometimes rabbits get back limb paralysis and these carts are especially made for them. I have not seen them but I hear they are effective. The down side of course is the price because they have to be custom made.

I've heard so much about these pups in Long Island. Their life started off so sad, but thanks to a lot of great people they seem very happy. I'm glad they could all stay together, they really need each other. The adopter is very special.

That's why puppy mills need to be eliminated. That is horrible but the dogs don't know there is something wrong with them. They are probably pretty happy little guys and if they can get aroung well with the cart, they will lead normal lives.

I saw this story on TV. What an inspiring tale. North Shore Animal League is to be commended for taking in these unfortunate pups. The program showed them getting around on their carts, and they appeared to be having a ball. Just another nail in the coffin for puppy mills.

I am so happy to see that these people have found a great solution to the very unique problem these dogs had. More proof that just because someone id "different" that with the right help, they can be as happy as anyone else and enjoy life to the fullest. A hugs thumbs down to these irresponsible breeders who prioritized greed over the health and wellbeing of these animals.
