The world of animal rescue lost one of our best success stories with the passing of Harley at 15. Harley was born in a puppy mill destined to spend his life in a small cage. A life that was cruel to him and he suffered horrible neglect that left him with heart issues and one eye. Until finally getting adopted at age 10. He was adopted by Rudi and Dan Taylor and became an inspiration to animal lovers around the world as they used social media to educate about puppy mills and raise funds to help hundreds of dogs get a second chance at a happy ending.
Even being recognized by the American Humane Society as an American Hero dog for his role in puppy mill education. He even had his own Facebook page where tributes are pouring in. https://www.facebook.com/harleyfreighttraintaylor
Along with his friend Teddy they even started an online fundraiser to help fight puppy mills. Even hitting the road with National Mill Dog rescue. His new life included flying to Hollywood for the Hero dog award and helping his mom and dad testify before congress about the puppy mills.
