A co-worker sent me a photo of Rosie on Facebook this weekend and I brought it to the attention of Dogster's editor-in-chief; she got Maria, a contibuting editor, on the story immediately.

Here is Rosie's Story

I think that has got to be the worst I have ever seen. I am speechless but smiling because of the good hearts of the rescuers.

Love me.

Thank you for bringing this story to Dogster's attention, I am happy they wrote about it. That is wonderful that Rosie and all those other dogs are now in better hands, with those that truly care for them. There has to be something mentally wrong with hoarders like Rosie's ex-owners, there is no explanation for how someone can claim such love for something but treat it is such a manner. shrug

Good job, animal rescuers! way to go

The originally owners need to be committed to a mental health ward.

Yes, Lilith, and someone better keep a good eye on them since most usually start right up again, as soon as possible, especially without treatment for their mental issues, which is usually part of the sentencing when these things do go to court.

Thanks for bringing this to Dogster's attention. It was a good story. Backyard breeding seems like a harmless pursuit to many people...until they see a dog like Rosie.

Ugh, anybody breeding with merle genes possessing so little knowledge needs to be naughty And all that inbreeding on top of it.

It was great to read about how sensitively those rescuers had to handle the situation in order to help the dogs, it's a key point regarding how to best handle something like this. Alienating those people through heavy handed tactics would just have gotten a door slam. Hoarders often deeply love their critters...they're just incapable due to suffering with their own mental illness.

the breeding of merles is very tricky

my hats are off to the rescuers. I dont think I could have kept a calm head and a civil tongue.
