Indiana Business Named on U.S. Humane Society's Worst Puppy Mills
John E. and Rosanna Raber's business in Loogootee, Indiana was on the list, mostly from underweight puppies.
The listing uses information from USDA inspection records.
The Rabers' report is from a Oct. 5, 2016 inspection.
Inspectors found nine underweight puppies with their ribs showing, two puppies with liquid diarrhea and an adult boxer with open cuts with exposed muscle tissue. None of the animals had been to a veterinarian.
The licensee claimed he had been trying to treat the animals himself. He also said two of the adult boxers had been in a fight, but had only been treated with an herbal "topical treatment."
