Very sad news… We’ve been informed that our alumnus Miller passed away in February. He came to rescue in 2011 from a puppy mill where he was used for breeding under terrible conditions. He came with 6 other GSPs that were rescued and they were all given names after towns in the area. He was rescued in NC, however fostered in AL. Our records are sparse for that time period so we’re not sure who fostered Miller, but they chose an amazing family for him in Florida with our ‘now’ volunteers Richard and Marjie. In fact, Miller was their gateway to volunteering with SEGSP (thank you Miller).
From his mom Marjie, “He loved to beg to go out to eat and we usually took him with us. He had his canine good citizens and we attempted agility but he never got over being frightened of a few things because of his early years before rescue. Miller always had a soft stuffed toy in his mouth and it seemed to comfort him when he got scared.”
Miller was loved and cherished – beyond words. Richard and Marjie honor his memory by supporting SEGSP and we are so very thankful to have them as volunteers.
