Animal Protection and Control is investigating a Fort Collins boarding and training facility following a complaint from a Fort Collins family. According to the Coloradoan, Tiffany Brown said her 13-week-old purebred German shepherd puppy, Baron, suffered blunt force trauma and injuries that resulted in the surgical removal of the dog’s eye after boarding at American Dog School over the weekend.

Brown bought Baron from Adel Haus German Shepherds, a breeding facility in Julesburg, as a companion dog for her five children, with the intent of also showing him and enrolling him in service dog training school.

The family had searched for a dog for more than six months and was “more than willing” to pay $2,400 for their dream dog — which included both personality and physical attributes. As the investigation continues there are hopes of finding out
what happened to cause such a severe injury.
