Patti Messina — animal cruelty
I am a volunteer at Great Dane Rescue Midwest. We would like to be contacted by anyone who has purchased a dog from Sabras Danes/Patti Messina. We recently rescued, what we were told initially, were 9 great dane puppies. Upon initial inspection, that appeared to be accurate until we were told by our vet that they were 1 to 4 years old and were so severely and chronically malnourished that they would never grow in stature from their puppy heights. they weighed between 18 to 45 pounds at intake. adult great danes are typically anywhere from 120 to 200 pounds. These "puppies'" coats were encrusted with dried feces and urine and filth. This breeder's facility was subsequently searched by county authorities and the couple were arrested and 17 additional danes were seized from them. To assist in our legal efforts, we would like to be contacted by anyone who has purchased a dog from them. Please contact us either through our Facebook page (Great Dane Rescue Midwest) or [protected]@gmail.com or call 312.859.4518 or 815.312.6535. Thank you!
