#TheList backyard breeders Timothy Davey (aka Timothy Lee O’Reilly), born 20/07/1985, of Ravenscliffe Avenue, Bradford BD10 0JX and Charlotte Mountain, born c. 1986, of Victoria Avenue, Yeadon, Leeds LS19 7AS – banned from keeping animals for just five years after three dogs were found in a shocking state
Charlotte Mountain admitted allowing dogs Gismo, Rino and Bingo to suffer, while partner Timothy Davey, a career criminal with convictions for violence, was found guilty of neglect following a trial.
The bull breed dogs were suffering from severe skin and eye conditions, which saw two of them lose extensive amounts of fur.
RSPCA inspector Nikki Cheetham said: “These dogs were in a shocking state when they came to our attention and could not have looked more different after getting the treatment they needed.
“Gismo had virtually no hair on her body and her skin was red raw from sarcoptic mange. She really was a sad sight. Rino wasn’t much better.”
The dogs came to the RSPCA’s attention in June 2012.
Mountain – 10-week curfew; £100 costs. Banned from keeping animals for five years.
Davey – banned from keeping animals for five years.
Timothy Davey, now calling himself Timmy Lee O’Reilly, continues to operate a highly dubious backyard dog breeding operation, which he calls ‘pittz r us’.
Even though he’s on benefits, Davey is a prolific producer of bull terriers and appears to be raking in the cash.
This is not a man who cares about the fate of the dogs he sells either: and there is more than a hint of links to the dog-fighting world
