Dogs Coming Back to Jones County Kennel
A Jones County kennel accused of being a puppy mill is getting back nearly 60 dogs seized last week. It's exactly what the kennel's owner predicted.
"The dogs will be returned because there is no neglect, said Harold "Buzz" Powell, owner of Thunder Ridge Kennels. "The dogs are well fed, well taken care of and well groomed."
The Jones County Sheriff's Office and a USDA agent seized the dogs last week from the kennel. Animal rights groups accused the kennel of being a puppy mill and abusing its dogs.
Powell denied the claims then and says the dogs' return proves he was right.
