Dogs from Pender puppy mill to be part of governor's adoption event


By Molly Parker

RALEIGH, NC (StarNews) -- "I'm sold," Gov. Pat McCrory said Wednesday as he snuggled Lexie in his arms on a chilly day outside the Old Capitol in Raleigh.

Lexie looked on with wide eyes but said nothing.

The Pomeranian is one of more than 100 dogs discovered living in deplorable conditions by local officials in October at a Pender County puppy mill, and this Saturday about 30 of the rescued dogs will be available for adoption in the capital city.

McCrory and his wife, Ann, are hosting the Dog Adoption and Humane Awards event from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. at the Executive Mansion that day – a first-time adoption event for the McCrory administration.

I am glad he likes dogs. He certainly does not like humans.
