    THey just busted a puppymill/ hoarder situation about a mile or two from my house and we have decided to take a older dog either a yorkie or a pom with seizures since we have experience in seizures. We are also going tomorrow to turn in volunteer apps for dog walking and such. They are being housed at the kennel I used to work at also.

    Here is the news stories
    Here is one with a picture of the cages they were in

    and people say AKC doesn't do anything to folks...they do what they can do...which sometimes isn't much if they aren't allowed to inspect.

    Bad situation...glad the dogs are out of it.

    Aww, that's so good of you. Poor things. I'm sure whatever dog you end up with will be VERY grateful to you. Sounds like they need good homes.

    I hate stories like this. I hate what humans are capable of doing to helpless animals. Im glad all the dogs were removed and I hope she gets a tough sentence.


    Good luck on what ever pup you get.

    What the hell is wrong with those dog pictures???? It's like they used the same dog/pictures for most of the dogs, and the yorkie ones look like they're not even real.

    Says the AKC did revoke her license if I read it right. Doesn't really stop them, people will buy a purebred pup without papers :(

    I agree, these are not real dogs...they are stuffed dogs. They just don't seem real. (photos of the mom/dad Yorkies and Maltese)

    I remember seeing a site a few years ago where they created stuffed dogs that looked so realistic...I wish I remember where that site was. These dogs look exactly like them.
