1st Time Missouri Anti-Puppy Mill Law Enforced

Missouri has been known as the puppy mill capitol of the US, but they’re working to change that.  The Canine Cruelty Prevention Act was signed into law in April and has been used to seize 73 dogs (Cocker Spaniels, Labrador Retrievers, American Eskimos, Poodles, Beagles, Papillons & Brussels Griffons) from Linda Brisco of Monett, Missouri.  She can’t legally operate a dog breeding facility for six years.  Go Missouri!

  • Lucy the dog could have ended up just being another dog that died on the streets of Puerto Rico after being hit by a car, but she was lucky.  She was adopted by some wonderful people.  With their help, a wheelchair, and conditioning similar to the conditioning marathon runners practice, Lucy became the first disabled dog to climb Mt. Washington in New Hampshire.


Parole Hearing


  • First there was a male goat and a female dog, who are best friends, wandering loose around a wedding chapel, then there was the threat of  goat rustling charges, then add their friend Lucky, a tripod dog, and you’ve got one of the oddest rescue stories I’ve heard.


  • In Washington, a dog swims after seals, a boy paddles after the dog, the boy rescues the dog, the seals swim after the boy and dog.
