Dogs rescued in Wisconsin

Posted: Updated:

More than 40 dogs are being carefully tended to after being rescued from what authorities are calling truly horrific conditions. The dogs are getting used to their new surroundings after spending their entire lives living in a Wisconsin barn with no heat. With the help of an animal rescue group, they're on the road to better lives.

Monica Swank of Lupine Kennels took in 10 males and seven females after their owner turned them over to a Cocker Spaniel rescue group. For now, the dogs call the kennel home and will for the next two weeks before they are ready to find their forever homes.

"I would give them their first bath and haircut," said Swank. "They just jump on you for affection and love and just nuzzle into you. They just want to be held and they just want love."

For more information on the rescued dogs, contact Lupine Kennels through their website. (www.lupinekenels.com)

    There's a big misconception about food vendors at the Minnesota State Fair. Many people think you can set up a booth, work 12 days and make a pile of cash. But it's not that easy. Aside from a lot of hard work, it also takes some luck.
