Rescue Scottie stars on National Geo’s Dog Town

Willa, a Scottish Terrier rescued from a puppy mill, was featured on last Friday’s episode of the National Geographic series, Dog Town. The Scottie News apologizes for not letting you know before this aired, but, as the old saying goes, better late than never.

Here’s some of Willa’s story:

Willa got a rough start in this world. The little Scottish terrier spent the first six years of her life confined to a small cage, churning out litter after litter of puppies so her breeder owner could sell them.
Michelle’s treatment plan for Willa was simple. “I really just exposed Willa to a lot of new things and people,” Michelle says. “She came to work with me sometimes and I had people over to my house. She learned how to use the dog door very quickly. Loud noises bothered her sometimes, but I just didn’t make a big deal about it.”
With Michelle’s special care, Willa learned how to, well, just enjoy being a dog. And last February, Willa found a wonderful forever home with Mary Ann Meyer and her son, Jeff Huntington, in Salem, Oregon.
