ST. LOUIS — The Humane Society of Missouri says its Animal Cruelty Task Force has rescued 10 critically ill basset hound puppies from a Missouri breeding facility.

The dogs were taken Friday from a facility in Douglas County. Authorities say all 10 dogs are very thin. Some have pneumonia, parasites, ear and eye infections.

Three other puppies in the litter died before the Humane Society's involvement. The Humane Society says it is pushing for prosecution of the operator of the facility.
