I picked up a mamma dog with ten pups last night that was tied at the end of the property. Three large city-cans surrounded the dog to obscure others view from her. When I was questioning and conducting the seizer the owners(none of legal age to own her) were quick to get their behinds off the front porch and come fill the empty water bucket and feed her. She was about 30 lbs under weight and had a logging chain on, which subsequently weighed more than she did.

Hi RichmondACO,

Correct me if I'm wrong...but would that not be grounds for either having them surrender or remove the mommy dog and her pups. One..for not providing food and water, Also, if they didn't have adqute shelter for them, two...her being under weight (yes, I know that she gave birth..but 30 pounds under weight) Three...because of having the mom, not good body condition..not having the proper nutrition..she can't properly take care and nurse her puppies properly. Fourth, the owners were not of legal age to even own her. and Fifth, having the logging chain..which weighed more than her.

I would have either had them surrendered or removed. I'm not a nicey nicey..and my thinking is if they don't do it the first time...odds are they are not going to do.

What did you end up doing?

Sunny
