BROOKLAND, AR (KAIT) -

A Bono man has pressed charges against a kennel employee after he discovered his dog was malnourished when she came home.

According to court documents, Mike McGlaughlin said his dog, Ellie, was sent to the veterinarian twice before she came back home malnourished from obedience school.

The documents state it happened at the Blind Side Retrievers kennel in Brookland.

McGlaughlin said Ellie was under the care of Hulan "Stetson" Adams.

McGlaughlin told Region 8 News Ellie went to the kennel in January as a happy, playful dog weighing 46 lbs.

He claims Adams did not properly care for his dog for the month she was there.

Adams allegedly took Ellie to the vet twice without notifying McGlaughlin. 

McGlaughlin went to the vet to check on Ellie and that is when they told him she was very sick.

He said she lost 21 pounds, was skittish and blood was coming out of her ears.

“He said she was in good hands and that it wasn't much, but when I picked her up it was a lot,” McGlaughlin said. “It was terrifying to see a dog that lost 21 pounds in one month.”

He also said it took Ellie awhile to get back to normal.

“She came home and drank water and then would throw it right up,” McGlaughlin said. “She is doing better now, but she was so dehydrated."

Adams is scheduled to appear in Craighead County District Court on June 7 for the complaint of animal cruelty.

“He needs to be investigated for this,” McGlaughlin said. “I don’t think the young man needs a license to train dogs.”

Region 8 News reached out to Blind Side Retrievers on Wednesday for a comment but did not hear back.
