Paralyzed Dachshund Held Captive As Breeder Dog

OK, it's the holiday season, and the Dachshund stories are supposed to be so sweet that you could lick your computer screen and taste sugar.  Unfortunately that's not so with the story of this beautiful dappled chocolate longhair.  Meet 'Rainbow,' one of the 43 Dachshunds recently rescued from a puppy mill in Utopia, Texas.  It was discovered that Rainbow, who is still nursing her last 3 pups, was paralyzed from the back down; "when animal control seized her and her babies, she was in a bathtub."
Rainbow lives in constant pain, and while her future is still uncertain, animal lovers have contributed over $7,000 for her care in just a few days at Diamond Dachshund Rescue.
Read all about Rainbow, watch a news video, and see the awful photos of her former life at KSAT News.

What is it with America and puppy mills? Try Quebec Canada, we have over 2,000 puppy mills in our province alone. Horrible. And further people here in Quebec don't even know what a puppy mill is when you talk to them about it even if you use the french term for Puppy Mills (Moulin de chiens). So its not only America but the whole of North America.
