Yorkshire Terriers Victim of Animal Hoarding
It's just like the show Hoarders, but instead of junk, it's animals. Marion County has seen it's fair share. Earlier this year, the animal shelter saw what they called one of the worst hoarding cases in Marion history. A man had close to 700 animals on his property.
The animal shelter was faced with another case this past month and it may have been the generally high price of the breed that had adopters waiting in line. There were nearly 60 dogs found at Linda Brock's home in Weirsdale. Brock used to breed the Yorkies, but the breeding got out of hand. The dogs were found in makeshift cages, newspapers saturated in urine, and without ample food and water. The Yorkshire Terriers were all spayed or neutered, went up for adoption just yesterday, and they all had homes by this afternoon.
