Nearly 500 dogs seized from Texas kennel
Wed Jul 8, 12:47 am ET

BOWIE, Texas Nearly 500 dogs, some with skin conditions and open sores, have been seized from a Texas kennel where the Humane Society says several dead animals also were found.

Authorities in Montague County about 90 miles northwest of Dallas took the dogs from Maggic Pets/Heddins Kennel after complaints the animals weren't receiving proper veterinary care.

Cloyce Heddins' wife owns the kennel. He tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram the dogs are cared for and says authorities had bad information, possibly from disgruntled customers.

But Sandy Grambort with the Humane Society says authorities found several dead animals and seized others that were ill. She says dogs were found in crates double-stacked in outbuildings, as well as in outdoor pens and kennels.

It's a puppy mill?!

http://www.dogflu.ca/07072009/23/clo...uge_puppy_mill
July 7 - Nearly 500 dogs were seized from a kennel near Bowie, Texas on Tuesday, July 7.
At 9:45 am Montague County Sheriff Paul Cunningham carried out the warrant and searched the Maggic Pets/Heddins Kennel.
While searching the 254-acre farm police found 497 dogs, however, police believe that there may be more dogs to be found. They also said that they found dogs with missing open sores, missing limbs and bones and they even found at least 4 dead dogs.
Cunningham said, “There is grass back there up to my shoulders. We have no idea how many dogs could be back there.” He later said that this is possibly the largest puppy mill ever in the state of Texas.
So far, no charges have been made, police are saying that their main concern at this time is to make sure that the dogs are taken care of.

Sometimes I think Bob Barker's advice was more applicable to humans rather than pets.

BOWIE, Texas — Nearly 500 dogs were seized Tuesday from a kennel where a Humane Society supervisor said several dead animals were found after complaints the dogs hadn't received proper veterinary care.
The Montague County Sheriff's Department served search warrants at Maggic Pets/Heddins Kennel, which offers on its Web site breeds including pugs, schnauzers, toy beagles, akitas and shitzus.
Cloyce Heddins, the husband of the kennel's owner, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that the dogs received proper care and authorities had bad information. He said his wife, Carol, has heart problems and was taken to a hospital by ambulance when officers arrived.
"We've been in this business a long time," Heddins told the newspaper. "If you raise dogs, you've got to get them veterinary care, especially if you're trying to make a living of it."
Heddins did not immediately return a Tuesday night call from The Associated Press.
Sandy Grambort, a supervisor with the Humane Society of North Texas, said authorities found dogs in crates double-stacked in outbuildings, as well as in outdoor pens and kennels. Some had skin conditions and open sores, she said.
While not all the dogs appeared to have health problems, she said those in the poorest condition were discovered at the back of the property, where customers are not allowed.
"We are very secure in our case," Grambort said.
Heddins said officers took eight to 10 filing cabinets from the home. He suggested complaints could have come from a few dissatisfied customers.
"Every time someone gets mad they can just call and say someone is not taking care of his dogs, and that makes them subject to an investigation," he said.
The dogs were taken to a Fort Worth warehouse donated to temporarily house them. A Montague County justice of the peace will decide whether to return the animals to the kennel or leave them in the custody of the humane society.

Good point. I've always been a fan of rescue or humane society adoptions, so I know next to squat about breeders, but it seems to me that the reputable breeders focus on ONE breed?

sorry I have to say this but wonder what would be the reaction from some if you replaced 500 people with 500 dogs?

I like dogs...I enjoy them very much. But I guess my question is at what point do/should our civil and criminal laws transcend to animals? I understand that animal cruelty laws are set (read: should only be set) to prevent us as people from public displacy of mutilation or some rock band throwing animal guts around on stage, etc.... and no one wants people practicing how to dismember a body on a dog only to grow that passion into humans. And to protect our general population from diease...but IF I SPEND MONEY to BUY a pet then I feel I should have a right to treat how I want as long as I am comfortable with it....and not anyone else. Obviously there should be laws about the standard care for animals being sold for PROFIT. I agree in that area.

Sure you buy a car. If you want to drive it legally in VA, you have to be told to have an inspection and insurance, etc. BUT ONLY TO DRIVE IT ON PUBLIC ROADS. If I have a dog on private property then what gives...? i bought it with my money. When's the last time you bought a human? (well maybe I shouldn't ask that question..lol)

But all in all an animal is an animal. It's funny to me how people buy a dog and are all for equal laws or whatever for their dog/cat/bird whatever but then in the same breath they call it their pet? WTF....talk about irony.

PET
An animal kept as a companion; One who is excessively loyal to their superior; To stroke or fondle (an animal); To stroke or fondle (another ...
en.wiktionary.org/wiki/pet


I don't know I guess it's our human nature to regulate everything we lay our hands on. I mean we have laws from when alcohol can and can't be sold to not being able to ask your realtor who lives in this neighborhood versus that one. Makes sense that the national legislative anthem is Regulators....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6x5Olen_1co

Hm. If it were 500 children, Hell wouldn't be a good enough punishment.
If, on the other hand, it were 500 pedophiles, I'd say that's a good facking start.

Sadly, our civil and criminals laws don't transcend SHIT, in my opinion.

We are far too lenient on too many, and impose severe--and unnecessary--penalties on others (thinking consensual "crimes" here).

I am with you on this! Funny how people wanted to have Michael Vick put to death yet when a husband kills his wife on a honeymoon he gets only one year in jail and most of that is just probation. When it comes down to it pets are just animals plain and simple.

People get sentimental about some animals, and couldn't care less about others. Do any of you know what conditions your veal or turkey lives through before it gets to your plate?

Animals (regardless of type) are thinking emotional communicative beings and should be treated as such. Yet because of human arrogance they are looked on as property as much as slaves going back 1000s of years. This needs to change before we stop seeing things like this and the Michael Vick situation. I whole heartedly support animal rights. I am not a tree hugging nut bag, I am a hunter, but I do believe animals such as dogs and cats should be protected from situations like this and should have similar rights to life as we all enjoy. Pets are not property and should be treated better than they often are. My dog is highly intelligent and even has a job that earns income (he is a Wilderness SAR Dog). In my book that makes him a productive member of our society and earns him the same rights and privileges as the rest of us.
