Liberty is about a 1 year old Lab mix. Liberty was one of the dogs who was rescued from the notorious C.C. Baird Martin Creek Kennels and Patsy's "Pat's Pine Tree Farms" after Baird, Patsy Baird, Jeannette Baird, and Patricia Baird, their agents and employees, successors and assigns, directly or through any corporate or other device, were ordered to cease and desist from violating the Animal Welfare Act and the Regulations and Standards and had to pay the largest penalty in history of $250,000 plus another $250,000 if Baird or his family attempts to be involved with dogs/cats. Baird sold these dogs to research labs all over the United States. Almost all teaching Universities like UAMS in Little Rock use animals in research projects. Some of the dealers are called Class B dealers and have "random source" dogs. Legally, a random source dog is supposed to only be sold by an individual who breeds and is the actually the owner of the dog. Unfortunately, most of these dogs are "Free to Good Home" dogs in the paper, strays and some are actually stolen family pets out of their own backyard.

We have no idea where Liberty came from, who previously owned her or what kind of life she has had. She is a young Lab mix, about 1 year old, sweet and friendly and was saved from being a research lab animal. She is a little shy at this time so would do best in a quiet household. It would be great if some one out there was willing to adopt Liberty and help her re-learn that the world is not so bad a place. She has made huge strides in just the few weeks we have had her. At first she would never come out of her dog house, now she comes over and licks us and is starting to learn to take treats from us. None of the dogs from Baird's place knew how to play with toys or take treats from human hands. This is most likely because they were tortured and abused by people and are having to re-learn that not all people will treat them this way. She will most likely become protective of her new home. She wants to try and play with the other dogs through the fence line. We have not allowed her to run free in the yards yet with the other dogs. She seems to be very loving toawrds smaller dogs and puppies. We all wondered if maybe they used her for breeding and took her puppies away from her.

Thousands upon thousands of dogs passed through CC Baird's property in Williford, Arkansas, but thanks to the efforts of Last Chance for Animals and the USDA that will not happen any more. There are only 4 Class B dealers left in the US. Efforts are being made to change the laws to make it illegal to use "random source" animals. You can read more about this on the DogsOnly World Wide Woof message board and the article "No Free to Good Homes". Liberty's story will hopefully help educate the public about why it is important to microchip your dog and never give dogs away for free, ever! You can come and meet Liberty at the WLR Petco every Sat and Sun on Chenal Parkway across from Target and Home Depot. We will be there from 1-5. Liberty's adoption fee is $75 and covers all of her vetcare to include spay, rabies, heartworm test and preventative, microchipping and payment of 50% of basic training classes.
