13 dogs and elderly abuse.http://www.ktla.com/news/landing/ktla-hawthorne-elderly-animal-abuse,0,514427.story
HAWTHORNE (KTLA) -- A Hawthorne couple was arrested Friday after officers found an elderly woman and 13 dogs living in squalor, police said.
This is a person who has been on a large GSD Forum for years, some people tried to point out her previous abuse conviction.
Apparently she managed to con dogs out of breeders and I believe rescue groups, saying she was training the dogs for disabled people.
