Writing on his personal blog, Mr Abraham said of the undercover footage: “I witnessed bitches with huge mammarytumours, corneal ulcers, severe behavioural problems; all allowed tosuffer in the darkness with their food bowls full of faeces and theirwater bowls empty.”
“This wholeepisode made me even more determined to educate the public and makethem aware of what’s happening on the sinister side of our British dogbreeding industry.”
