What’s more, the little Chihuahua’s body just wasn’t capable of withstanding such abuse. As a teacup dog bred for her small size, the effort of continuous birthing took its toll on Brie. At just three years old, she had already been forced to have two litters.
Furthermore, both of Brie’s litters were delivered through C-sections, presumably so that she could have more puppies than her natural threshold would allow. Not only that, but she was also most likely starved at the mill. Inevitably, her taskmasters thought she was nearing the end of her usefulness.
Indeed, The Northern Echo reported that Brie was scheduled to be “drowned in a slurry pit.” Before the puppy mill could claim another victim, though, a rescue team saved the Chihuahua. The team belonged to a South Wales-based, not-for-profit organization called Many Tears Animal Rescue (MTAR).
