Titterton had been operating from her home, a farm in Milwich, and checks revealed it was not licensed to sell pets or breed dogs. The owner of the farm was not involved with the investigation.

Most of the puppies were cockapoos and health problems with dogs from so-called puppy farms is a common occurrence, trading standards said.

Jailed for 18 months.

  1. Incorrect information! no animals were seized from the property, this lady was not sensenced for any animal welfare charges, this case was in relation to fraud not cruelty.

    1. Perhaps you weren’t prosecuted on animal welfare grounds but the BBC News article states: “Up to 39 puppies, many with health problems, were seized from Esther Titterton’s home in Stafford.” so maybe you should’ve been. Regardless you sell puppies bred on puppy farms. You profit from cruelty and misery and that earns you a lifelong entry on our database.

  2. This article is very misleading no animals were seized from the property or rehomed! The case was in relation to fraudulent certificates not animal cruelty. Im a young mum of 2 and would like to get this removed. Its actually fake news that destroys lives please think about that before you publish an untrue statement

    1. I will not be removing it. The fact that you have children is irrelevant to me. You exploit animals and care little for their welfare. You only care about money and that means you will always be a danger.

  3. I dont even live at any of the address mentioned above. THIS ARTICLE IS FAKE NEWS. I will be seeking legal guidance, the bbc have been intouch and are investigating the matter. Unfortunately these tabloids will publish almost anything to sell papers/ articles. The click bait society we live in is a direct cause of the highest suicide and deppression rates known to date . Let that sink in.

  4. The police will be contacted due to you providing incorrect address and private pictures this is bullying and harassment.

    1. Pictures are not “private” if you made them public, which you did. If the street address is “incorrect” then why are you bothered?
