Helping American Eskimo's from the puppy Mill..

Three Lexidog locations had the opportunity to help the Oregon Humane Society with bathing some of the American Eskimo dogs that were rescued from a Puppy Mill in Kennewick Washington last week..

7 male dogs came to our Macadam location and were so cooperative with the scary humans as we tried to clean them up so that they can soon be put up for adoption..They were all very frightened but such sweet dogs that deserve wonderful forever homes!

Please see for more information on these amazing dogs!
