A Monett dog breeder whose operation was raided June 28th has given up her dogs–73 Beagles, Poodles, American Eskimos, Labs, Spaniels, Papillions, and Griffons.. They’ve been taken to the Missouri Humane Society in St. Louis.
Attorney General Chris Koster had filed the original legal action leading to a restraining order against breeder Linda Brisco. “The consent judgment closes her down. She’s done for six years,” he says.
The action is the first one taken by the state since passage of the new dog breeder’s law adopted by the legislature this spring. The new law is the legislature’s rewrite of Proposition B that was approved by voters last November.
The dogs will be treated at the humane society and put out for adoption.
