A former puppy mill dog who received a new life is the inspiration behind the Rosco P. Coal Train Community Outreach organization based in Mountain View, Arkansas. The organization was born in 2014 and serves the Mountain View and Stone County areas.
Rosco was born to a puppy mill breeder and lived four years in an outside-only pen. He only received physical contact when he was required to breed with a female dog to produce yet another litter. Given that he was deprived of love, affection, socialization and proper medical care, Rosco thrives after being rescued. Due to his poor treatment and genetic defects commonly found in puppy mill dogs, Rosco lives with multiple health problems but he is now happy and active.
Rosco’s story is not unusual, in fact it’s all too common. That’s why the Rosco P. Coal Train’s Community Outreach is so vital for the Mountain View and Stone County, Arkansas area.
