HEATHER AND HUSBAND WILLIAM WERE ARRESTED 03-05-15!!
Poplar Bluff, MissouriHeather has been observed taking on up to 5 new dogs in the last 4-5 months. Each time she acquires an animal something goes wrong; the dog is too much trouble, doesn’t get along with her kids, landlord won’t allow it, etc. The dogs are then sold.quote from https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.344589482407211.1073741832.335426433323516&type=1
Most recently she took on a Min Pin that she then tried to sell within a couple of weeks time. She claimed the pup, barely weaned, was mean to her children. (this pup was only 10 or so weeks old).
While posting the pup for sale on FB, in various groups, a rescuer stepped and she told them they "needed to come get the dog that night and it might not make it the night." She went on to say, "I called the police department yesterday where I live at and they said to kill him bc (because) animal control wouldn't take him"
In the morning she wrote to the rescuer, "He passed away. He bit my son and my husband yelled at him and he was on the back of my couch and he lunged at my husband and missed him my husband tried to catch him and he missed him and he fell and hit the floor."
The rescuer contacted the Poplar Bluff Animal Control and made a report. After much urging by the rescuer the police finally visited Heather’s home the day after the incident and did indeed find the dead body of the tiny pup.
There is currently an investigation underway, by several agencies, including animal control.
