A breeder in Howell County, Missouri has agreed to surrender 135 dogs so she could close her business.  This was the breeder’s decision and not the result of law enforcement.  “I just think it got to be too much,” says Brian Thomas a statewide investigator.  “She couldn’t find anybody to help her.”

Cocker spaniels were among the 10 breeds surrendered. Humane Society of Missouri President Kathy Warnick said, “We will provide veterinary treatment, socialization and find them the loving homes all dogs deserve.”

Eventually, the pit bull’s owner arrived and beat his dog repeatedly in the head until it let go. Dudley was rushed to the local vet and had his ear sutured back together.
