Richland County's Humane Agent welcomes a new state law that beefs-up regulation of large-scale dog breeding operations, or so-called "puppy mills".

Missy Houghton recalls the rescue of nearly 300 flea-infested dogs from a kennel in the Shelby area in August of 2012, as the new law requires breeders be licensed.

This law applies to breeders who produce at least nine litters and sixty dogs in a year, but not the small breeders most commonly found in Richland County.

The dog breeder bill was seven years in the works. The number of Ohio breeders it will affect has not been determined.
