Read this article from News 10 ABC...It states "Officials say it was not a hoarding or puppy mill situation, just a breeder who got in a little over his head."
"When we took them in they were muddy, but aside from that they were great," said Berkshire Humane Society Director, Cheryl Truskowski."
The new Animal control officer is an animal activist 100%...I did not know it was illegal to make $ off of breeding dogs. Way to slander the name of the owners. Its a shame more care isn't given to abused children. Flex those muscles...
Its illegal not to claim the money he made off of the dogs he did sell that goes along with being a kennel owner. Hope the IRS goes after him to I don't like paying taxes either but I do. Some women should be spayed too an mate with better men. I would rather help a animal out then some people.

It was on E Bay for while, thats what was reported in the paper he listed no name or number and had the site taken down after the fact..Even people that bought dogs from Rick said their dogs were very sick read Iberkshire a lot of people are talking about Rick on there too.

Can you prove she talking about the case I doubt it she wants Rick to pay the price why blow the case over a few beers. If Rick did the right thing he would not be in so much trouble right now but I guess that would have been to easy for Rick to do what was right..If anyone is a monster it was Rick and his family they all knew how they took care of the dogs. Was it the dog office that had all those dogs no it was Rick he couldn't even the clean the puppies after they were born now thats a monster in the making...

So Sue why did you stay working there for all those and drive new cars for free you sound like a hypocrite!
This post is about poor dogs being abused If Rick had to many dogs he should have given some away for free to people that would have love them an took care of them that would have been the right thing to do for the dogs.

Why do you steal threads to advertise an obviously needy business? Yes, keep the business in the berkshires, just not at a place that no one respects or responds positively to. I have never actually gone there for a car quote, been to everywhere else though. Now, will NEVER go to see this PETER because you are bugging me! Congrats on driving business elsewhere Sue! You are an IDIOT!!!!

My personal comments and opinions....
Regarding the situation of removing 31 dogs from a puppy mill.
Some of this story may be true BUT some of this story is questionable at best. People talk and talk too much. I have heard the dogs were in good shape andNOT one flee.the older dogs not yet purchased were pudgy.... Interesting...people sometimes fall into hardships of great proportions and rather than destroy them as people, slander them and humiliate them.. WHERE is compassion and kindness. So take the dogs to the Humane Society and help clean and rebuild these kennels and then return the dogs. But for some people destroying others gives them pleasure. It is true .. What you give you get back and som people better take care. This situation is disgraceful and those who went in and took those dogs sounded like a SWAT team going I'm for heroin. I also believe the two pregnant dogs were taken by a person who is going to sell these puppies for profit from this trashed. These dogs never should have been taken by a person who was involved in the take over.. Who says this person should have and profit from this. These digs should immediately be removed and placed at the Quiet rooms at the Humane Society where they belong and decisions professionally made as to where these dogs go. Is a restraining order need to prevent a person from selling these puppies... Where are the proper authorities.. Humane Society.. Veterinarians.. Lawyer... And the public... To demand action be taken to get those dogs out of the hands of a person involved in taking them from their home. Something here is very very wrong and before you cast the first stone take a moment and just how disgraceful thus situation has been handled. I for one would like to get that restraining Oder so the person who has them turns them over to the Humane Society where they rightfully belong... Until this matter can be talked about with qualified individuals who have given a lifetime of protecting dogs NOT some one with only months behind them..very disturbing situation and not one any town should be proud of.. I guess destroying lives is easier than helping them..

Why would you want a restraining order against the person who really care in how the dogs were being treated??? If people thought like you did the world would be a sad sad place put the blame on the dog owner for not being a licensed kennel operator and not having rabbi shots an for not taking care of the new born pups. Whos lives got destroyed Ricks how, he didn't take care of a living creature he was breeding. Would you buy a dog from a unlicensed kennel owner who didn't even have his dogs vaccinated I wouldn't. Rick screwed his own life up and its not the first time the guy is in his 50s try blaming him if he took care of the dogs nobody would have complained then idiot. Your opinion is just a lame as Rick was. Boy imagine a person squealed on Rick that care about how the dogs where being treated shame on that person they should have let Rick keep breeding the dogs not having shots now how dumb is that idiot..

I have purchased a dog from Rick and BELIEVE me not only is this dog georgeous but was loved before he came to us... He is a show dog and a winner... Georgeous coat...eyes... Posture...yes I have a perfect dog from this so called dig mill... There is something not wright about this and more and more I have never heard such a bunch of miserable, nasty people who want ill will for these people.... Just what if you are wrong... The damage that has occurred is unspeakable... Somebody should drop in a battered women's center.. And abused kids... Then say what you want...do unto others as you want them to do unto you '!!!this situation could have been handled differently... No one killed another person or butchered a family.. We as neighbors and community could have helped somehow...it is funny how some people thrive on others misfortune ..if your house burnt down people would extend a hand not kick you to the curb...
