Humane Society Takes Dogs From Melvin Dog Breeder

Date posted - March 7, 2012

A dog breeder in Melvin has 14 fewer dogs.

The USDA says the unidentified licensed breeder probably has more dogs than she can handle, and they want her to reduce the number of dogs she cares for.

The Siouxland Humane Society was called in on Monday to take over 14 of the dogs, but it isn’t the first time they’ve been there. They were there in October of last year as well to collect 11 dogs.

Officials with the Humane Society don’t know how many dogs the breeder has, but they imagine it’s quite a few.

Over half of the dogs taken on Monday have already been adopted.
