      MALTESE PUPPY-MILL PUPPIES DESPERATELY NEED YOUR HELP!!!

      Over 200 dogs and a few cats, 30 of which were pregnant, were seized
      recently from a breeder in Tennessee. EVERY dog seized had something
      wrong with it. They were three and four in a cage piled high in her
      garage, and they had never seen the light of day. Many of the bitches
      had had multiple C-sections, with severe scar tissue infiltrating
      their reproductive organs. Three puppies and one adult dog have since
      died; many of the adult dogs are so old they will not live long enough
      to get a loving home. This breeder sold people sick and dying dogs,
      using the same deceptive practices over and over again. The living
      conditions in the breeder's home were so deplorable, according to a
      local judge, her four children, including a severely handicapped
      child, were removed from her home, yet to be returned. Around 8 state
      and local agencies are involved in investigating this breeder. Around
      20 names were used to register dogs with the AKC to avoid detection of
      her systematic abuse of these poor animals. We believe state and
      local taxes were not paid for several years at least. There were`
      possibly hundreds of puppies sold by this one breeder on several
      websites every year. She only had one or two people helping her with
      over 200 dogs at any one time, if that.

      THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THIS BREEDER MAY GET HER DOGS BACK!!!!!

      HOW CAN YOU HELP? Go to
      http://malteseonly.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=77&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
      and read the now 18 pages of the message board thread "Maltese puppy
      mill raided" as well as
      http://malteseonly.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=2&sid=0c1b210516b6b4100bfcff4889dbd809
      to read the top three threads concerning the criminal investigation of
      this breeder. Then, PLEASE CALL ANYONE YOU KNOW WHO MAY HAVE
      PURCHASED A MALTESE DOG FROM A BREEDER. If the purchase was from the
      breeder involved, their damages may help bring the investigation to a
      monetary level that will help prevent her from getting her dogs and
      perhaps her children back. Then, please send e-mail messages to the
      news agencies that have been mentioned in the thread, so we can get
      national attention for this story. We want to stop the puppy mill
      business for all breeds, not just Maltese. By making a national
      example not only of this breeder, but of the effort that all
      dog-lovers will make to put puppy mills out of business, we will put
      these disreputable people on notice that their practices will not be
      tolerated by our society.

      You will also read about the mammoth effort of the local shelter
      workers and the volunteers in Tennessee. Many corporations have
      donated services. Thousands of dollars have been donated to the
      rescue effort, and thousands of hours of volunteer time have
      contributed to the rebirth of these neglected animals.

      WE THANK YOU FOR ANYTHING YOU CAN DO TO HELP THESE ANIMALS. If you
      ever need the assistance of the Maltese community, please know that
      you will have our full support.
