I heard this rumor thirty years ago when someone I know had a Norwegian elkhound stolen from the Northgate area of Paintsville. According to what I heard, the dogs were stolen and sold to someone for medical research.

The Cincinnati Enquirer

VERONA, Ky.- A "puppy mill" ring is suspected in the theft of more than two dozen purebred dogs in Northern Kentucky since August - including some stolen while children played nearby.

Thieves are targeting breeds such as Jack Russell terriers, poodles, collies, dachshunds, huskies, Rottweilers and pit bulls, Wanda Bedard, a Grant County animal control officer, said Saturday.

"They're incredibly brazen," Bedard said. "They've gone and untied dogs from front yards in the middle of the day. They jump out of a van, untie the dog and yank it in the vehicle."

The animals have been taken from Boone, Kenton, Campbell, Grant and Pendleton counties, sometimes in front of their owners.

The puppies likely are destined for resale, or to be bred so their puppies can be sold, Bedard said. The number of thefts could be closer to 50, counting another 20 missing dog reports.

Authorities suspect at least 12 people from Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio are involved, some driving vans and trucks that have been seen casing neighborhoods.

Rachael Poole's 4-year-old bulldog, Scooby, was stolen Aug. 7. Now, the Verona woman is compiling a list of missing or stolen dogs (contact her at [email protected]). "We had one lady whose collie was stolen," Poole said, "and she chased after the thieves and got her dog back. Then next day, they came back and stole the animal again."

You have no idea what we're concerned about.We may do just what you're suggesting and MORE.If one doesn't value ALL life I doubt one would value SOME life.

My dog was taken Saturday morning from my front yard. The vet told me it might have went to the Paintsville Stock Sales, however, he is a Boston Terrier, black, white, and brindle, tail docked. He is 6 years old and my kids are crying everyday. Please help us get him home if you have seen or heard of him leave info. we are from Wolfe County. Do they sell bulldogs at the stock sales?
There is a reward for his return.

I've lost several dogs in the past year or 2. Lost a Jack Russel (gone 3 months, showed up at home and disappeared again a short time later), 2 coon hounds, and a Pembroke Welsh Corgi. All purebred, and beloved family pets. If I could get my hands on those who caused my dogs to disappear.... let's just say they'd leave other people's pets alone in the future!
