This week we are joined by Erin Morse, Executive Director of Midwest Animal ResQ, as she tells us about a recent puppy mill bust involving a very high profile breeder of XXL bully breed dogs. This horrific and wildly strange case has many unexpected aspects to it, including the price of the dogs before they landed at a city shelter where willing adopters are now few and far between. From breed discrimination in the rescue community to accepting help from unexpected places, every advocate should hear this story. Listen in and learn what you can do to help Midwest Animal ResQ as they work to find homes for these very deserving and loving dogs.

Investigative reporter Alex Schuman exposes the scheme and an underground part of the industry bringing us the pets we love.
