State Representative Bruce Ayers grew up in Quincy with a black Labrador named Smokey. A dog lover, Ayers was appalled, along with the rest of us, over “Puppy Doe,” the female pit bull dumped in bushes near a playground in Quincy last summer. Puppy Doe had been starved, stabbed, beaten, and left for dead.
Beatrice was rescued in 2003 by the Companion Animal Protection Society (CAPS) during an undercover investigation of a South Dakota puppy mill. These days, the 11-year-old Basset Hound is a tireless advocate on behalf of animals, especially those in pet shops and puppy mills.
A talented model who loves to be in front of the camera, Beatrice is a wonderful spokesmodel for CAPS. When she's not enjoying the celebrity lifestyle, she's blogging and updating her numerous social media accounts.
