PRINCE GEORGE (NEWS 1130) – The BC SPCA has rescued a mother dog who was force-fed drugs and alcohol.

Ten newborn puppies were also rescued when the dogs were seized.

The SPCA was called in by a concerned citizen who reported seeing the owner force-feeding the four-year-old German short-haired pointer drugs and alcohol, as well as abusing one of her pups.

A medical exam proved the dog was being abused, with evidence of fractures and past injuries.

A toxicity test did find traces of drugs in her system.

The mother and her two-week-old pups are now all being held at the Prince George SPCA branch.

They will be up for adoption in a number of weeks.
