Puppy Mill Update

Occasionally, I check back in to see if anything has ever happened to Patricia Adkisson, the lady who sold us Chloe (read here) and who in 2008, was busted for one of the largest puppy mills in TN. I was happy to find this statement on Nashville's news channel 4:

"She ran the state's largest puppy mill; now Patricia Adkisson will spend 10 years in prison for animal cruelty. In June 2008, officials found more than 700 animals living in deplorable conditions at her Hickman County home. After her prison sentence, she will be banned from ever owning another animal or even working with any organizations that deal with animals. Since this case, state lawmakers have passed a law cracking down on puppy mills."

I remember this while we were still living in TN. Upon first glance, I thought it a fitting punishment; but now I'm wondering how she can get 10 yrs and murderers get less time? Was it strictly for financial gain, or is there a psychiatric element of animal hoarding? Hope your dog is OK!
