USDA Investigation in Missouri

USDA Investigation in Missouri: Spring 2001

Nellie

Nellie: Nellie is a three-year-old malnourished Boxer with scarred legs. She is timid and afraid of people's hands. The breeder may have been starving her because he thought she was "ugly." Nellie has a new home with a very caring person.

Freedha

Freedha: Freedha, a three-year-old Dachshund, was left in labor for three days. After delivering three puppies, including one stillborn, the breeder finally took her for a c-section, and the vet found one more stillborn puppy. Freedha has a home.

Salsa and Gordita

Salsa and Gordita: Salsa and Gordita are ten-year-old Chihuahua sisters with luxating patellas and bad teeth. The vet removed Salsa's mammary tumors. Gordita uses special drops for eye problems. Salsa delivered a stillborn puppy in February 2001.

Sooner and Polly

Sooner and Polly: Sooner, a six-year-old Golden Retriever, is being treated for severe allergies. The breeder was about to destroy him. Polly is a seven-month-old Labrador Retriever whom the breeder didn't want because she is too small.

Tiny

Tiny: Tiny is a Great Dane puppy with healed broken ribs. A large male Great Dane had stepped on him. We found a home for him before he even left Missouri.

Dixie

Dixie: Dixie, a pug puppy with mange, was destined to become breeding stock. She has a home with four other pugs.
