Because we need more puppy pics on Facebook! Lamb Chop, a 12-pound Maltese has been chosen the World’s Cutest Rescue Dog.
A contest by "People" magazine and Pedigree took online vote of 10,000 of the nations cutest rescue dogs and it was a tough choice, but this little puppy mill rescue named Lamb Chop took the crown.
She's been through a lot in life. She was rescued after 6 years in puppy mill. They used her to breed multiple litters. She was in such bad condition, her teeth where removed and she was treated for cauliflower ear, plus, had several tumors removed. It was all done by the Washington Country Humane Society.
Lamb Chop's owner Christin Schubert is on a quest to raise awareness about puppy mills and mistreatment through the non-profit Bailing Out Benji. Schubert said, “Lamb Chop is a super cute face to an ugly industry.”
For winning, Lamb Chop got $1,000 for the charity, a years supply of Pedigree food, and a spot on Good Morning America.
