There is a puppy mill like this operating in Bushnell. Calls to the Sheriff's department, and the Humane Society has accomplished nothing. I guess it all matters which county these dispicible people live in.

this woman was suspended from ALL AKC privileges till 2013

She was then suspended AGAIN for addional 5 years and fined $2,000 back in 2004 for falsifing litter registrations.

She needs to be in jail.

Puppy mills take many forms,this is one.If you want a dog or a cat then go to the Humane society or animal control out on Faulkenberg rd.They have alot of healthy dogs and cats that need a home.

That was exactly my thought! Investigating for animal cruelty? They need to investigate to figure out what to call that????? They should go STRAIGHT to jail! No passing GO, no chance to collect more money, no nothing but straight punishment!

Yep, more idiots making money off an animal, an of course I'm sure they don't have the money or equipment to take care an house them properly. Shame on the owner an everyone who knew about the condition these poor animals were in.

They wont be ready for several months. Currently, they are still owned by the owner. There will be a court case at a later date to determine what will happen with these animals.

Besides abuse and neglect of the poor dogs, the FL State Attorney NEEDS to look into this woman's business practices for tax evasion and internet fraud. I think they will find the abuse is just the tip of the iceburg.

I can not imagine how anyone with a concious could do anything like this. She needs to be held accountable for all of the pain she has caused these little dogs. I hope they put her in a cage and make her live in the same conditions. Very Sad.

I strongly agree with Sandi, this "woman" needs to be put into a small cage to live and be treated
as she treated those helpless small dogs. There is NO NEED FOR AN INVESTIGATION; FRAUD, ANIMAL ABUSE!!!! Nothing more need be said!!!

It's a wake up call !!! How many other sad cases will we hear about befor we demand action ??? We need State and federal laws to govern breaders. We need to close these back yard breaders down. Yes this is sad and everyone wants to come to the aid of these poor abused babies. What about all the other ones that suffer in silence ???? Is it not time that we get stronger laws to protect those that have no voice ????
