Sheriff adopts bloodhound he rescued from ‘death camp for dogs’

The Warren County Sheriff in Iowa has adopted a bloodhound he helped save from egregious conditions at a failed dog rescue located at a deserted home near Indianola on February 2, 2017.. The announcement came on Saturday as the Animal Rescue League of Iowa posted a photo on their Facebook page of the bloodhound dubbed Karma, being hugged by Warren County Sheriff Brian Vos and his wife. The Sheriff hadn’t seen Karma since the day he rescued him with 19 other dogs, but admitted he just couldn’t get the pooch out of his mind.Karma the bloodhound before

Lindsey Morrow, the owner of Bully Breed Miracle Network had rented the property to run the dog rescue, but had collected thousands of dollars and left the dogs to starve and suffer. After reports of animal neglect, Warren County authorities found the remains of two dogs left in filthy cages at the property. The remaining dogs had been living in their own feces and urine and were found inside a camper in the home and in cages – all the animals had been in various degrees of serious neglect. Karma was barely breathing when the sheriff lifted her nearly lifeless body into his arms and rushed her to a veterinarian for life-saving emergency treatment.

According to the Animal Rescue League of Iowa, the dog was in hypovolemic shock from hypothermia and had been kept in intensive care.  When finally  cleared for adoption, Sheriff Vos was there to meet her. And so the two met again …

“While there has been overwhelming national interest in adopting sweet Karma,” stated the ARL of Iowa, “we are happy to announce that she will be going home with the very person who saved her life and helped collect the evidence that will hopefully bring her alleged abuser to justice.”

Because of Sheriff Vos and the efficiency and compassion of the Warren County Sheriff’s Office, 18  dogs are alive today; all were saved just in time from the worst conditions ever imagined. And for Karma – it’s the perfect name and the perfect family.

    HUGE THANK YOU TO SHERIFF BRIAN KOS – he saved 18 lives and Karma now has a safe loving home. The hunk of sewer slime named Lindsey Morrow definitely needs a trip through a wood chipper – she deserves it.

    Prayers for a good future for Karma is his new home. Love to see the rescuer adopting the dog! I do wonder about the fate of the other dogs that were taken from that place and what punishment did that cheating a hole get for doing that to these helpless animals.

    Thank you so much for saving a life. The woman who left these beautiful dogs to die needs to be hunted down and shot! These dogs didn’t deserve this! Too many times this is the outcome though! Please help where and when you can!
