  2. Hi,
    We have recently discovered a set of female puppies who are used for breeding and been raped I guess. We had found a small Shihtzu who unknowingly ran away from the breeders place and ended up in our society. Dog lovers thought that it was a lost pup, hence we took her to vet directly, got all her ticks cleaned and while getting her back, the owner called saying that it’s his dog. The dogs are purely used for breeding and been kept in the worse condition
