A dog breeder, accused of starving her dogs, has been ordered to jail. According to, 49-year-old  Julie Bernet bred expensive, European imported German shepherds, but found herself facing charges after dead and dying dogs were discovered on her property in 2015.

Bernet was initially given probation after the horribly neglected (and dead) dogs were found on her property in Johnson County, Kansas. The dogs were said to have been living a life of neglect, in deplorable conditions – in fact, some of the dogs were so starved that they had resorted to eating one another.

But subsequent reports of abuse, in addition to several other violations to the terms of her probation, just months after her initial conviction, ultimately landed her behind bars. Assistant District Attorney Jason Covington stated, “The conditions these animals were kept in was disturbing and horrific.”

Bernet has been ordered to spend one year in jail.

    I cannot understand people that don’t give their animals water (24 hours a day), or feed then twice a day. these people are sick and should never have any other animals.

    Not a long enough sentence. She should be in jail for as long as the starvation of these innocents was going on. Hope there is a female Bubba. What should we call a female Bubba? Bubbette?

    Let her live like she allowed these dogs to live. She is disgusting and shouldn’t be treated better than she treated these poor animals.

    One year in jail is a frigging joke! This female hunk of pond scum should be sitting in a filthy prison cell for at least ten years. She DELIBERITLY starved these poor animals – breeder my ass, she is nothing more than an animal abuser and will do this again – her nasty face should be posted in every shelter and rescue group in this state so she is never allowed to be anywhere near another animal. Personally, I wish she would be hogtied and dumped in the nearest landfill with the rest of the trash and since that won’t happen, I hope she has a fatal run in with a tractor trailer.

    Expensive dogs and she treated them like this! They had to have cost her to acquire them. I would say a year in jail is hardly enough for what she did to these dogs. What is more alarming is it’s been 3 years since the dogs were found, why did it take them this long to do something!

This sick fucking bitch I hope she gets what is coming to her. She needs to be tortured this slime ball useless bitch. Hope somebody gets their hands on her. Disgusting subhuman hope she rots with cancer.

    Big damn deal 1 year in jail. I wonder what the judge would do if this bitch was his kids or grandchildren she took care of and starved them still one year in jail. The judge is another asshole.
