Missouri Nips Another Dog Breeder

St. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – Another commercial dog breeder is in trouble with the state of Missouri over alleged poor conditions at a breeding facility.  It appears State Attorney General Chris Koster is in the process of a one man battle to erase he state’s reputation as the “puppy mill” capital of the country.

The AG is seeking a temporary restraining order prohibiting the JJ Kennel in Ray County from conducting any commercial dog breeding activity. The suit says Department of Agriculture inspectors found numerous violations of  the Canine Cruelty Prevention Act and  the Missouri Animal Care Facilities Act.  In part, inspectors saw dogs living in unsafe cages amid excessive feces and in need of veterinary care.

Koster’s office reports the operator of JJ Kennel,  repeatedly refused to allow Department of Agriculture inspections of her breeding facility

The  lawsuit says the kennel is run by Jeannine Julian, of Richmond. Through the courts, Koster is forcing the operator to come into compliance with state breeding facility standards.  He is also seeking civil penalties up to $1,000 per violation and pay court costs.  

Koster says this is the third case he has brought under a state dog-breeding law that was revised in April.
