The dog now goes to schools to educate youngsters about puppy mills and shelter canines.
“For those wondering why they were not adopted together… that was the shelter’s original plan, but Chompers (true to her name!) got too harsh with young Ruggles, and because to his health difficulties, it was concluded that it was in both of the animals’ best interest to be adopted individually. They are both happy and very much loved!”
