Dogs at New York Puppy Farm Brought in from the Cold

Thanks to a sudden but intense campaign by dog lovers on Facebook, about 40 puppies will be sleeping much warmer and safer tonight. Herbert Weich, the owner of Flat Creek Border Collies puppy farm in Sprakers, N.Y., was charged yesterday with failing to provide adequate shelter from the bitterly cold winter weather for his dogs. The local SPCA took 40 of 66 dogs into custody, and Weich has two weeks to improve his facilities by building 24 insulated kennels. If he complies, the dogs may be returned. Twenty-six dogs are remaining in his custody on the condition that they’re brought in when the outside temperature drops below freezing.
