Neglected Puppies Rescued On Spokane's South Hill

KHQ.COM - SpokAnimal officials are worried there's a West Highland White Terrier puppy mill operating on the South Hill in the area of 37th and Freya in Spokane with the dogs kept in deplorable conditions. 

On Monday, SpokAnimal Animal Control officers were called to rescue four strays walking together in a South Hill neighborhood.  When they found the Westies, they were so matted and covered with feces that they couldn't identify the sex of any of the dogs. 

All four dogs were older females, and SpokAnimal officers suspect that the owner of a puppy mill had discarded these older breeding females because they were past their prime.  It is very unusual to find one purebred Westie;  it is highly unusual to find four walking together.

No one has stepped forward to claim them. All four of the dogs had to be shaved and groomed;  three of the dogs are available for adoption on Thursday June 30. 

The fourth dog is suffering some chronic problems and is under care of SpokAnimal's veterinarians.  SpokAnimal is asking the community for any information on these dogs and who their owners might be. 

Any information should be forwarded to our animal control officers at SpokAnimal at 534-8133 x 205. They also warn that if you purchase a dog from a newspaper or online ad, to make sure it is a reputable owner.  Insist on visiting the home or facility where the puppies are kept;  if the owner insists on meeting you off premise, that's probably a warning sign that something is amiss with the breeders facilities.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Location, location, location.  You may have seen a post making its way around social media of a house listing in Seattle for nearly $450,000. That sounds about right for the area, right? Well this house is a bit of a fixer upper. The kind with lots of potential if you invest the time and money.  Currently, however, it is shown on the real estate site Redfin in less than perfect condition.
