In this 2011 file photo, Mark Dahlberg, of Fort Myers, nuzzles Sammy, a dog used for breeding by a former local breeder, Arther Perkins, until mid-summer 2011, during an advisory board meeting at the Department of Animal Services in East Naples. Dozens of animal rights advocates packed the Collier County Department of Animal Services Advisory Board meeting to voice their outrage at the department's lack of enforcement over the years on animal hoarders and breeders like Arthur Perkins, a local dog breeder who surrendered 45 dogs to DAS when he foreclosed and was evicted from his home.
