Dogs seized from breeder after dogs found living in squalor

Dogs seized from deplorable conditions at ‘award-winning’ breeder house

Over a dozen dogs have been removed from deplorable conditions at the home of an “award-winning” breeder in New Hampshire. As reported by WCVB News, officials seized a total of 18 cocker spaniels from the Durham home of  Bonnie and Wilson Pike.

A concerned person tipped off the authorities after observing the dogs living in squalor at the residence. The person reported that the dogs were being kept in the basement of the residence. The authorities and a member of the local SPCA went to the home and discovered that the dogs were living in urine and feces and some were crammed in cages.

Deputy Chief Rene Kelley stated, “Some of them were two to a cage, and there was an overwhelming stench of urine and feces coming from the basement where the dogs were housed.”

Award winning breeders

The couple ran Silverhall Cocker Spaniels, and just last year, they were awarded the “Breeders of the Year” by the American Kennel Club, reports the Associated Press.

Dogs seized from the residence were taken to a local animal shelter for care. The couple is now facing animal cruelty charges.

    This shows how closely the AKC watches the people they allow to use their name in breeding. How did they ever win “Breeders of the Year” if they had been treating their dogs like this? It shows why you must investigate a breeder before you ever buy a dog from one. I’ve known back yard breeders that treated their dogs much better than this!
