My family also had a litter of puppies and we received a call from a woman in Erskine, MN that was interested in buying one of our puppies. Luckily she never did, but I was wondering what the owner's name was that owned all the poorly treated dogs. If I know the owners name then I can see if it was the same person that contacted us about our puppies. If you have any information please email me at [email protected] Thank You,
Becky Thompson is the owner, Soaring Eagle Setters is the name they used. Please don't ever sell anything to these two. The guy is Mikki Johnson

My female, her mom, her dad and brother from first litter at this kennel, please if anyone knows any information about this kennel in erskine please email me so i can find out if it is the same kennel or not. thank you [email protected]
It is Soaring Eagle Setters.

Becky Thompson and Mikki Johnson are the owners. Disgraceful and inhumane to say the least. Dogs do not turn out this way after birthing if they have the proper nutrition and care.

What happened at their court hearing?
Do all the dogs have homes?

I really think we need stronger penalties for people like this. The reason we don't is because so many people do not think and animals life is worth much. You more jail time for 2DUI's than mis-treating animals. The people that had these dogs got 10days in jail a fine and told they couldn't have dogs for a year. Then they moved 300 miles away and will probably do it again. This past sunday I adopted one of the last ones from this story. Surprisingly she is a real sweetheart, you can tell the Humane society did a good job bringing her back to health.
