PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Close to 20 dogs who were rescued from puppy mills in the Midwest are still looking for their "fur-ever" families.

In December, the Arizona Animal Welfare League rescued the 21 dogs from several different puppy mills in the Midwest.

Two of the 21 dogs have been adopted. Ten more are up for adoption this week.

They have all undergone makeovers, dental, medical and behavioral check-ups and are ready to begin their lives outside of a cage!

Many of these dogs were bred three times a year for six to eight years.

Some of them have lost teeth, have needed numerous tumors removed, and have also needed plenty of TLC and therapeutic interactions with humans to begin their recovery.

They are looking for very special, understanding owners.

They all have their stories. One of the mill dogs, Saguaro, will need to be in foster care for two months while she heals from a jaw surgery due to years of damage from chewing on her cage.
