#TheList breeder Jillian Elisabeth Sanford, born c. 1948, of Oaklands Close, Verwood BH31 6NZ – for extreme neglect of eight dogs
Sanford, who breeds whippets and English setters under the name Erinnis, admitted causing unnecessary suffering to an English setter named Star by failing to seek appropriate care for an entrapped claw. She also failed to get veterinary treatment for her seven whippets’ various ailments, which included chronic eye condition and advanced dental disease.
At least one of the dogs was said to be very thin when rescued. The abuse apparently took place over a prolonged period and it took some time for a prosecution case against Sanford to be built.
Sentencing: ordered to pay a total of £1,180 fines, costs and charges. All dogs handed over to the RSPCA. Banned from keeping any animal for five years.
