GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - About half of the dogs taken from what the Humane Society of South Mississippi calls a horrifying puppy mill have been adopted.
WLOX-TV (http://bit.ly/18JITsc ) reports that more than 50 of the 102 small-breed dogs were adopted Saturday.
Pamela Brown says she went to the Humane Society office in Gulfport at 10 p.m. Friday to be first in line Saturday morning.
Humane Society workers warned that people will have to be very patient with the dogs, which range from 8 months to 8 years old and were penned. Spokeswoman Krystyna Szczechowski (shuh-HOW-skee) says they're not housebroken or used to people, and many have heartworms.
Their former owner, 72-year-old James Thornhill, was booked with one count of misdemeanor animal cruelty. He denies mistreating the dogs.
