That is heart breaking! 19 of them, it takes time to adopt them all. But why all beagles, was he a breeder? Hope I can do something, but Charlie is a handful.

I feel very sorry for these poor dogs and I hope they will soon find the loving home they deserve.

Having said that, I really don't know how to react to the derigatory statement made by the article regarding the owner: "The man who owned the dogs died, leaving the animals neglected and in need of care."
The statement openly implies a blame on the owner. Yet, I have to admit that I have often wondered when going on a day trip with my husband, leaving most of my dogs home, where they prefer to lay on the sofa rather than being cooked up in a car for hours, what would happened if we were to have a car accident and both die on the road... How long would it take for people to realize that dogs were alone in that home by then without food and water? I am pretty sure that at that time, the dogs would be found hungry, scared, and probably in a dirty home....

I hate the way papers like to spraid the news, going for the general outcry of the public often at the expense of the truth. Not to say that this was the case in this particular case, I don't know. And this is my point exactly: I don't know. And they say the press is there to inform... Anyway, until I can read pure facts, I certainly will not be the one to throw the first stone to this man, and my thanks go to the officer who so kindly it seems managed to bring these poor Beagles to safety.

Cheerio, I understand what you're saying. My daughter was in the TV news business for 5 years and she freely admits that stories are often slanted in ways that will get the public more "riled up." But in this case...I'm sorry, I think there is a blame on the owner. As the firman said in the accompanying video, hoarding cases (if that's what it was) often start out with the owner trying to do good, trying to help, but then it just gets out of hand. Nineteen dogs--that's an awful lot of dogs. And the report said the conditions were filthy inside the house. Of course that may have all happened after the man died. But the report also said that none of the dogs had outside in months. Now that is the owner's fault. Even if he were sick he should have made arrangements for someone to come and take care of the dogs. All those beagles shut up in a house for months on end---that's just not right!
But I don't mean to speak ill of the dead. I'm sure he was a beagle lover or breeder (hopefully both!) and things just got out of hand for him. The BONES website where I found this has an update dated 2/23 which said that many of the beags had already been adopted. I hope they all find good, loving, forever homes.

I've been following this story on the BONES website too. I am just grateful that there is a group of dedicated volunteers like this who were willing to step in and nurse these babies back to health. It looks one is already up for adoption. I hope they all get great homes.
