    (circa 1997- )
    Born in California
    Resided in California
    Toy poodle breeding dog
    Rescued from a puppy mill and later adopted
    Subject of the book 'A Rare Breed of Love' by Jana Kohl
    Received increased media attention after being associated with Barack Obama (2008)
    She spent over nine years of her life in a small wire cage at a puppy mill.
    Her vocal cords were cut because the sound of constant barking annoyed her breeders.
    Mistreatment at the puppy mill caused one of her legs to be amputated after she was adopted.
    She was scheduled to be euthanized after she was considered too old for breeding.
    Her breed was promoted as being hypoallergenic, which some animal experts disputed.
    Her media attention at times overshadowed her owner's animal rights activism.
    She was rescued by a stranger passing by the puppy mill just hours before she was scheduled for euthanization.
    Through a pet rescue site, she was discovered and later adopted by Jana Kohl.
    She inspired her owner to advocate for breeding mill issue awareness and animal shelter adoptions.
    Her history educated then- senator Barack Obama about breeding mill issues, which later inspired him to consider animal shelter pet adoption in the future.
    Her owner's activism inspired the Congressional 'Baby's Bill', which would change breeding mill practices.
    Over 40 celebrities were featured in the book she inspired.
    Among the novelties she inspired were a three- legged dog plush toy and her own theme song.
