In the week before Christmas, on a cosy bed beside a log burner a dog snoozes happily, her belly full of lobster. Just a few months earlier she had lain in the cold and filth of a Welsh puppy farm, her belly empty of food but full of yet another litter of puppies. The contrast could not have been greater.For six years Susie-Belle had been trapped in a life of misery as someone's commodity, a breeding bitch in a puppy farm, tied up in the back of a putrid shed, never seeing the outside world, receiving little or no care and experiencing neglect to a horrifying degree.For dogs like her, the end is usually a grim death, whether it's because they fail to be a good breeder or because they have simply become too old and weary to produce and raise the puppies that are demanded of them.A far happier ending awaited this little dog though as she was rescued, lifted out of the dark and grubby hidden nightmare that is puppy farming and brought to safety by someone who cared enough to make a difference.This is the moving tale of what life was like for one small dog, how it changed, and why no dog should ever be allowed to suffer at the hands of humans who value commercial profits more than life itself.This is the story of Susie-Belle and her road to recovery.
