A woman, known to make her living by breeding and selling dogs in what is described as a "puppy mill," left the Northwest after being jailed for animal related violations, and set up shop again in the heart of puppy mill land - Missouri.

Post her greedy stupid face everywhere, so people won't be suckered in by her lies. (Sadly, I have heard of pet stores talking about having puppies up for "adoption", when they are exhorbitantly priced "designer breeds"- so you know they are puppy mills pups, not rescues...)

Missouri is one of the worst puppy mill states. This Poser needs to be stopped, fined, and more as an example of anyone else who would try this SCAM. I got a precious dog and best friend unknowingly from a MO puppy mill thinking I had purchased the pet from "The NY Kennel Club". Remember friends the name is no indication of the character of the group or persons selling you the puppy. My pet, a female named Kuma was the dearest friend but had physical problems most of her short 10 year life. Plus, she was supposed to be older and the vet said she was barely 8 weeks old when she was shipped to me. Kuma, precious Kuma was afraid of loud sounds her entire life from experiencing jet engines (likely in Cargo) when she should have been with her Mother. Don't fall for these middle men tricks. Purchase locally from a reputable and know breeder or adopt from a local AKC or go get the animal. Always insist on seeing the animal in their home environment prior to your adopting them.

No Country for Animals” examines Canada’s deplorable record on animal welfare and looks at the people who are fighting to bring about much-needed change. Without being unnecessarily graphic, “No Country for Animals” exposes Quebec’s notorious puppy mills and examines the mistreatment of animals raised for food. This documentary enlightens and enrages you, and will leave you wondering how humane our society really is. http://www.cultureunplugged.com/play/6643

That's just terrible! How can anyone even think of making a profit out of animals' sufferings! I hope someone will take action against her!

When you look at all the precious puppies they look irresistible. They are adorable and it's so sad they have to suffer. When you look at their faces they are all groomed with pretty little bows and beautiful backgrounds, you would never know, but look at their bodys, the hair looks uncombed on the bodys. I have a yorkie, I guess this is why I noticed. I love my yorkie fur baby and this breaks my heart. These puppy's do not deserve to be raised this way.

I should add that I only looked at the yorkies so far!

Publicizing this woman is a step, I hope, toward getting her out of business!

But, who would buy an animal over the internet? You would have no idea of its temperament or health, or even if you were getting the actual animal in the photo; and a reputable breeder or seller would not have any idea of what sort of person or place the animal was going to, and so wouldn't sell over the internet.

I will exempt some of the real rescue operations from that criticism, but they usually engage in some email back-and-forth, or do some investigation about where the animals are going.

Petty greedy callous woman. I'd love to scrape that smirk off her face.

Stupid bitch will come undone as noone can hurt animals in full view of the public without being exposed and shamed!!!

Internet selling of animals should be prohibited or a heavy tax should be imposed on the sale of every dog, cat or any animal as well as insisting that every animal be vaccinated immediately when sold or at 8 weeks old so animals can be healthy.
