Millie was rescued by Carver Scott Humane Society on December 9th, 2015, along with her eight puppies, from a reservation in North Dakota. It is presumed that she had been forced to live outside all of her life. The shelter thinks she was born around August 1st, 2014.For Millie, the first few weeks of living in her foster house was an adventure. She didn’t like to walk through doorways or up the stairs. She was adopted out once but returned because she had severe separation anxiety.Amanda, Millie’s forever mom, was working at a pet store and just happened to start talking with a customer who happened to be Millie’s foster. Ironically, Amanda had just applied for Millie the night before! It was fate!A few days later, Millie went to Amanda’s for a house visit and never left! She officially found her forever home on Valentine’s Day, so she will always be her forever mom’s sweetheart! She’s completely gotten over her separation anxiety, is kennel trained and is in training to be a therapy dog for children!
