Is Sharon Roberts of Whispering Oaks Kennel Running Another Puppy Mill?
Say it ain't so. We know our friends at Dachshund Rescue of North America and all the great dog rescue groups across the country who aided in the efforts of possibly the largest puppy mill bust in history are distraught to see this news. Last year, nearly ONE THOUSAND dogs, mostly Dachshunds, were rescued from the Whispering Oaks Kennel in Parkersburg, West Virginia. Owner Sharon Roberts was not charged in the bust on the condition that she would never breed animals again. Now she has moved to Vincent, Ohio, has an Ohio state kennel license, 68 dogs, and $250,000 in cash at her home.
"I can tell you this. I do not have a breeding facility. People dropped off dogs and gave them to me, but I've never bred them," said Roberts.
If you have purchased a dog from Sharon Roberts in Ohio, or know anyone who has purchased a dog from Sharon Roberts in Ohio, contact authorities. And so the saga continues. Read more at WBNS.
