There was sad news last night as a little puppy recently rescued from appalling conditions in a Co Carlow breeding farm on Monday has sadly passed away.

The young pup named ‘Little Tish’ by her rescuers after she was rescued from horrific conditions on the farm along with 22 other young puppies by members of the Laois Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (LSPCA). The LSPCA say over 150 dogs were been bred on the farm.  Heidi Erasmus a coordinator for the organisation released a statement regarding the tragic passing of little Tish saying: “Her little body could not cope with everything so she passed away this morning.” “She had a litter of three and she went downhill fast. She just didn’t have it in her. “One dog did not have her back feet and another make had tendon damage and they were both being bred. Mrs Erasmus added: “They rescued loads of dogs from the farm. They also took away skeletons and bones.”It’s absolutely horrific.”

Mr Erasmus also said: “They named her Little Tish on Monday when she went into the vets. She was a Labrador cross. She would have been around six to eight weeks at the most. They all had horrible lives. “From the time she was born to the time she died she had a horrible life. Whenever we pick up one dog she just screams, she’s literally terrified.”  “There was faeces stuck to their bodies. They all had diarrhoea, and when we gave them water they were fighting each other for it.” She went onto say: “For me, it is the worst case I’ve come across. One cocker spaniel was completely emaciated, covered in sores and scabs, and completely shook
“Their eyes were rolling back because they weren’t used to daylight, the vet said.”

Meanwhile the Gardai and the ISPCA say they are currently  carrying out investigations.
