Releash Atlanta rescued Jordan and five other dogs from a puppy mill in Georgia. The poor animals were in horrific conditions. They never experienced love nor did they have a comfortable bed of their own.
Jordan was in the worst state. He was stuck in a cramped cage that he couldn’t even move freely. And when he’s tired, he had to sleep standing up.
It’s probably cute to watch a dog sleep while standing. But in reality, it’s heartbreaking. Dogs in puppy mills suffer and they don’t even get to be with their litter.
Fortunately enough, Jordan was one of the lucky pups the rescue group managed to pull out of the mill. After medical care, he continued to his foster home with Melissa. He had other foster dog siblings but he didn’t even know how to play with them.
Jordan feared everything that’s new to him. He refused to step on the grass and didn’t know how to use the stairs. He also didn’t know how to take treats from Melissa’s hands.
On his first night in his foster home, Melissa caught Jordan sleeping on his four feet beside his bed. The scene broke her heart. She knew it would take a very long time before the dog realizes he’s no longer stuck in his small cage.
Pretty soon, Jordan was ready for a new home. His foster mom thought it would be best if he ends up in a household with other dogs. It would also be in his best interest if he had someone who could stay with him at home for long hours and Kinney and Ann were his best shot.
The couple drove all the way to Melissa’s house to meet Jordan. In an instant, they fell in love with him. Even their dog Bella liked her new dog sibling.
While it took quite a little bit of time adjusting to his foster home, Jordan felt comfortable in his new forever home right away. He explored every room and sniffed every corner of the house. He even found the food bowl and the box of toys he shared with Bella.
After so much suffering, Jordan now lives a beautiful life. He plays freely in the yard and sleeps comfortably in his own bed. And most of all, he’s now part of a loving family.
