It’s always hard to imagine how anyone could mistreat animals, instead of showering them with love and affection. Unfortunately, thousands of animals live under terrible conditions and can only dream of being treated like family. The organization Releash Atlanta rescued around 700 dogs from a puppy mill in Georgia, and one of them is an adorable but reluctant poodle. He’s now named Jordan Knight and he’s currently living in a comfortable and loving environment, which is a completely new situation to him.
On his first night at his foster home, Jordan’s foster mom wanted him to be as comfortable as possible, so she made sure that Jordan had a cozy space to sleep in. As she watched him closely, she noticed he fell asleep while standing still. According to Releash Atlanta, Jordan was used to sleep in a cramped cage, and that explains why he didn’t even try to lie down to sleep.
Fortunately, Jordan is slowly adjusting to his new environment. He experienced new things like having a spa day, exploring a lot of rooms, and playing with other dogs. Once he’s physically and emotionally ready, Jordan will be up for adoption, and hopefully will find his permanent home.

We’ve had a lot of people concerned about our sweet little puppy mill kid, Jordan Knight. He was the little guy that was so used to standing to sleep due to his cramped cage, that he did the same thing on his first night in his foster home (top video). But we have good news to share, he knows how to get comfortable in his bed now! This doesn’t mean he’s a whole new dog just yet, he’s got a ways to go, but with a lot of love and attention from his foster family, he’s finally settling in. And bonus – he got to go to the groomers today! He was shaved at the vet, but he needed a little bath to put the finishing touches on his makeover ☺️These dogs have been traumatized emotionally and mentally as well as physically neglected. To expect them to suddenly change overnight is impossible, but we are doing our best to erase their past and replace it with love, attention and comfort while they learn this whole new world of theirs. Thank you to everyone who cares about these guys! We truly appreciate your concern! And for all of our new supporters, we are 100% volunteer run, 501c3, department of ag licensed rescue so everything you donate helps us help them, and is a tax deduction for you and if you donated towards these dogs – THANK YOU!
