A poodle, rescued and liberated from the gloomy depths of a puppy mill basement, basks in sunlight for the first time, undergoing an inspiring transformation.

Regrettably, many dogs are kept solely for breeding, often in deplorable conditions, forced to breed from a young age and continuously, leaving them neglected and worn out.

In one particularly distressing case, over 150 animals were discovered in tiny cages in a basement, starved, tired, and in darkness.

The video below captures the moment these unfortunate creatures are saved.

As a rescuer holds the poodle, you can see her eyes adjusting to the sunlight for the first time; it’s a touching moment.

The purebred dwarf poodle, later named B.B., appeared to have been bred repeatedly, according to her rescuer.

An anonymous tip led to a raid on a property near Charlotte, North Carolina, where over 150 dogs were found.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) managed to rescue the animals, which also included cats and goats.

B.B. was confined in a cramped cage, covered in filth, and underweight.

“She was very small, and she looked like this helpless creature,” Jessica Lauginiger, animal crimes manager at HSUS, told The Dodo.

With the assistance of law enforcement officers, HSUS was able to shut down the puppy mill, and many of the animals were taken to the local Cabarrus Animal Hospital.

At first, B.B. was wary of her rescuer, indicating that she hadn’t had much human contact, but as soon as Jessica picked her up, she leaned into her.

As Jessica held her outside, you can see this poor poodle’s eyes adjusting to the natural light. She’d likely spent her entire life in a dark basement.

Slept for a week

Brenda Tortoreo, who had worked at the animal hospital, met B.B. and it was love at first sight.

“B.B. was in a corner,” Tortoreo told The Dodo. “She looked pitiful. She was terrified. She wouldn’t eat, she wouldn’t drink, and I felt so bad for her. And I said, ‘That’s the one I’m going to take home.’”

When Brenda took her poodle home, she slept for over a week, and her new loving mom worked on fattening her up as she was all skin and bones.

Now, this sweet dog is showered with the love and affection she deserves, not to mention more toys than she can handle.

“She’s never had a toy in her life,” Brenda said. “She would be in your arms 24/7 if you let her…and the sad thing is she didn’t know what love was, she didn’t know what touch was…it’s just heartbreaking,” said an emotional Brenda

B.B. finally got the life that all animals deserve – safe, surrounded by love, and enjoying plenty of fresh air!
