Brianna came to Animal House Shelter of Huntley, IL from an animal control facility in Alabama where she was dumped off by a puppy mill to be euthanized. She and her companions had become to old to be useful any longer for breeding and were disposed of as garbage. She had never known a kind word or a gentle touch from a human for the first 8 years of her life and she was terrified. The slightest noise or sudden movement around her made her scurry to a corner, cowering, shaking, and soiling herself. Animal House Shelter did everything they could to comfort her and gradually she began to allow people to touch her. Before too long she was having the time of her life playing with other dogs and getting belly rubs! Brianna was soon adopted by a wonderful woman who sent the following update:

"I (Brianna's new mom) am confined to the couch for a couple of weeks after surgery. My little snugglebug Alice (formerly Brianna) has been my constant companion and has made the time so much more enjoyable. Who rescued whom? :)"

We at Animal House Shelter couldn't be happier for this brave little girl!
