I agree with you Joe. I myself think this woman should never be allowed around another animal ever again. But she will be. I am sure she will be up and running another puppy mill as soon as she can, if she isn't already. I almost went to her place last year to see her puppies, but found my breeder in Pittsburgh and decided to get Lacey from her. I am just thankful that Lacey came from a wonderful woman.
Will keep you posted when something else is known.
Let's keep are finger crossed that the maltese dogs and puppies are not returned to her, but all go to loving homes.
I am anxiously awaiting the 10:00 news here to see what is said.
I too agree that they did not count high enough. 11 is so few...I am disappointed.
I was sure the jury had to find her guilty of something. The evidence and testimony presented was just way to overwhelming. I just wish they could have done better than 11. I am sure when all this passes...she will have animals again and be back to the same old crap!
May the Lord abundantly bless the next group of pups/dogs/cats in her care.
At least the trial is over.
I just wonder...what next?!
But really, after all of this, would anyone want to adopt a pet from her AND for the price she wants? I live in TN and even if I didn't have a Maltese, I'd still know her name by heart. Her reputation is ruined and I'm glad for it! It's so sad. Lately I've been hearing so much cruelty against dogs this past year, it is so disgusting! Sometimes people can just SUCK so bad! But if anything good comes out of this, it's awareness.
The real problem is the lack of regulation. This woman or a family member will go back into business ASAP under a new name; People looking for a pet will not know what she has done because any searches under her new name will come up with nothing! They will adopt a baby from her without knowing what she has done.

I just replied to someone on MO that asked basically the same thing. In my opinion, this finding is not going to end up being punishment enough to keep her from doing it again. 27000 is nothing to her if she can get back to breeding. Her reputation may be ruined in her immediate area, and among knowledeable (sp?) current Malt owners...but in the future, unless the purchaser does his/her research extensively-they will probably never know about this case. All she would have to do is move to another state and assume yet another identity, and she would be back in business in no time at all. The next time it may not be malts. She may pick some other breed to help with her cover. Just my opinion.
I pray this is not the case.
PS-What part of Tennessee do you live in? I live in Northwest Tennessee...in Carroll County.
GOSH that woman should be in jail! I mean it wasnt just one or two hungry dogs, it was HUNDREDS of mutilated and neglected dogs! Im just so sad..... what I'd like to do to that judge......... what I'd like to do to that "female dog" (and I mean Jennifer when I say that).....
I believe in an eye for an eye, we should lock her up and starve her stupid butt and let her intestines come out of her body! OOOOOOOOOH Im so mad!
My Maltese Finn came to live with me as a puppy last winter. Since we weren’t taking long walks and mainly going outside to use the bathroom, I started out with a regular leash. As he got older and we started walking more, I got him a nice harness. It seems to fit well, but he doesn’t come to me...
Zooey just celebrated her 13th birthday this week. Overall, she is in great health for her age. She has a slight heart murmur now, dry eye (on two medications), allergies (which she gets the Cytopoint injection for), is covered in sebaceous adenomas, has lost some vision and hearing, and...
Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve been on this website.
My Holly passed away unexpectedly 2 weeks ago and I’m devastated! I’m not trying to replace her but bring some joy into my life again with an adorable Maltese.
I’m in NC And I have been looking for a Reputable breeder once again...
Every day since my husband has been working from home we eat lunch right at 12:00 noon. When we eat we also give Pipper a few pieces of melon as a snack. Well now as soon as my clock chimes 12:00 Pipper will jump right up from a sound sleep and run straight to the kitchen, exactly when the...
