Msmaria Breeders and boarders everywhere should get together . This could be coming to a city close to you soon, if this is allowed to happen. Very sad.

Something is terribly wrong here and the people affected need to get together as a group, privately, and make a plan of action and then network with other individuals, organizations and groups who might be able to help you.

I think it is very important to get an investigation going through the media and also to go through the attorney general's office and, as Jean suggested the state department of Agriculture. This is outside the jurisdiction of the FBI.

I wish you the best of luck.
Thank you

I'm confused about one thing: Have the owners not joined together to file a civil suit to get their dogs back?
Yes, there are 3 different people, all three of us are trying our best to get our dogs returned. I feel badly for one person because I believe her two pups are gone, adopted out. There are probably other owners & co-owners also but I don't think they are up to the challenge of getting their dogs back. I feel really bad for the co-owner of Dante too. She paid to have him trained and he lived with her in another country for most of his life. Co-owning in the case shows that breeder friends are becoming enemies. She truly loves Dante and he loves her and that's who he should be with. I sure hope I get my dogs returned, I have to be grateful for getting Nando but what he had to go thru and amount of time it took when it was life/death situation was not fair to him.

Needing Advise Does anyone here know who Joyce Ainsworth is?
Is she a Judge at shows?

Blanketback Totally unreal. And I really hate the fact that some people think that what they did was fine, as far as placing the dogs with their friends and associates. Yes, I agree that having to house 39 dogs all at one time would have been tough, but WHY were the rescues that stepped up to help turned away? That's telling of the situation right there, say no more. This is so disgusting.

Agree - attorney general and cc the NYS Department of Ag & Markets. New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets

I am sure there is an "action team" on the news stations there who goes for this kind of thing. Durham, New York (NY 12423) profile: population, maps, real estate, averages, homes, statistics, relocation, travel, jobs, hospitals, schools, crime, moving, houses, news list of stations at the bottom. Problem is - where is the sympathetic character in all of this - the only ones are the dogs, so I'd be looking for an animal advocate not related to any of the people in this situation (the shelter or the owners of these dogs) to tell this story, because no one who cares about dogs (and it will be people in NYS who will matter most in terms of policy) can relate to anyone who deals with their dogs like this. Bringing out the injustice of dogs being taken and not going to homes where they will be loved companions, but being (sold? given away? not following procedure that is for sure - and is sub-set and a huge angle that is the underlying story) used to make money for other people - that will not sit well with people and that's the story to be told.

While I still feel that the dogs were in horrible conditions and that was inexcusable (opened the door to all. of. this.) I am equally sickened by this turn of events.

In other areas, the landlord would have gone in, gotten horrified, called animal control, dogs would be seized, released by owner or not, and then things would have gone from there with good rescues and the shelter (likely shelter - adoptable dogs up their stats) speutering all before adoption if the dogs were turned over or not returned.

Unreal.

Have you seen the kids on Hoarders? The living conditions? How they work with these people to improve the conditions so that the children will not be taken away. It is crazy how we are so much more worried about dogs (well purebred expensive dogs), than children.

Oh yeah, you can't sell or give kids to your buddies.
Good point Selzer. I thought of this too, had this been a day care center raided would the best kids be adopted out overnight to their friends who couldn't have or produce kids like that on their own? Or would there truly be stricter laws enforced. IMO Cuomo's laws are not doing what they were designed to do. Especailly not in this case and what happens when we all sit and watch while case precedence is set. Ouch!
