    Default Training/boarding kennel investigated for neglect/abandonment in IA

    http://www.nonpareilonline.com/news/...948fb1232.html

    41 dogs removed from kennel, some malnourished. 3 found dead.

    I'm sure there is "more to the story" than what is being released via news feeds.

    No matter what the circumstances, very sad situation.

    One of the news stories I saw, the owner/trainer was reported to have been at the hospital for a short while over the weekend. There were no details about that and you are right. Very sad.

    It doesn't sound like there is much to investigate--the piece of trash running the kennel should be thrown in jail. Dogs don't die overnight

    Let me guess - really reasonable training rates?

    In the news article that I read, the owner said that it was the spread of distemper that killed the dogs. I thought that this is one of the things that we have vaccinate our dogs for. Am I missing something?

    I would suggest not putting very much stock into what that guy says. More than likely they died from lack of food/water.

    This a full blown investigation with criminal chargers pending ,the owner was arrested this morning.

    The whole distemper thing has little credibility , I think we'll see a lot of horrible issues reveled as this investigation continues.

    The picture of the emaciated dog being led out on lead was disgusting.
    Hopefully this criminal faces the full force of the law.
    I really feel sorry for anyone who had a dog there.

    I'm hoping the owner ends up back in the hospital with several broken bones...
