Default OMG! You've got to read this! Major puppy mill bust!

I feel so very horrible. I've told you I got Jose` and Chulita from a byb...It's been years. Chuli is 9 and Jose` is 7. It was a mid life crisis...a near impulse buy. I didn't even have Internet yet and just didn't know what I know now. Chulita is healthy. Jose` has luxating patellas.

This woman didn't have that many dogs, but a few different small breeds. The dogs seemed well cared for....pretty much. Chuli came smelly but otherwise healthy. Jose` turned out to be very large for a Chihuahua and still has semi floppy ears. They both have stupendous temperaments.

Anyhow....in 8 or 9 years things must have changed. AND....I am not sure about this. I'm in Seattle and I have my records at home so I can't be 100% sure, but I'm almost positive this is the same place. The kennel name sounds so familiar. The address in Snohomish is also absolutely familiar.

When I called her later to tell her that Jose` didn't look like a purebred Chi, she said, "He's a purebred, but could be a throw back. He's not show quality." And she would not give me back my $500.00 bucks. But she'd exchange him. Yeah, right.... I already was crazy about him.

Anyhow...this is in all the papers...the biggest bust in the area ever! Deplorable. She must have really launched into a big, huge business....more addresses even, than the one in Snohomish....like she had her family members doing it too.

Anyhow, when I got my dogs, they didn't live in conditions here described. In one blog I was reading, (not here, I don't think) someone was describing the little fenced area in the front yard with a doggie door into the puppy room. At that time, it was just a room....and there were definitely nothing near what they describe the numbers. There were maybe 2 or 3 litters of different ages. And it wasn't very dirty...a nice house and she appeared to love the dogs...very affectionate. OMG. She must have gotten greedier and greedier since I got the dogs. When I go back home....in a few weeks, I'll have to look at my records to be sure. But I tell you I'm 98% sure it's the same name. This is just so pathetic and sick. How can anyone treat animals like this?
