An influential Chihuahua rescued from a puppy mill who went on to lead a movement died March 20, 2016.
It was a power washer that claimed Harley’s left eye as his cage was cleaned inside an Oklahoma puppy mill years ago.
But in losing his own sight, he helped so many others to see the reality of life and often death inside substandard mills that breed dogs to sell to pet stores.
Harley became the face of the fight against puppy mills, his journey to Washington and to other rescues around the country carefully chronicled by his Colorado owners and the leaders of the National Mill Dog Rescue.
Theresa Strader, Executive Director of the group, said Harley leaves a powerful legacy.
