This is why I hate puppy mills and backyard breeders. They breed with no education or concern about genetics or what they are doing. When two merle dogs are bred, the majority of the offspring have genetic defects. No problem for the puppy mill, they just dump the rejects off to be euthanized. 

This little 8 week old female Australian shepherd puppy was scheduled to be euthanized yesterday. She needs a $3000 surgery, and no way was the puppy mill going to spend that much money on her. Well, guess what --- Hands, Hearts & Paws is going to save her from death and is going to get her the help she needs!

BTW, we've named her Aziza, which means "cherished".

SAD UPDATE: and further proof of why I hate puppy mills so much. The breeder found out that this puppy had not been euthanized and insisted that it be done on the spot. RIP sweet Aziza, we tried very hard to save you, and I'm so sorry that we failed.

She is so cute. What kind of surgery do they have to do?
