Jefferson County area Doberman puppy mill. The shelter supervisor later related to us that the puppy mill existed

Upon her discovery she immediately summoned local authorities to request backup. She further related the site
was squalid and involved a total of 31 Dobermans.
Whelping boxes were numerous and readily apparent. The adults were housed, running loose in a gutted mobile
