    Among the more than 200 dogs seized from Almost Heaven Kennels, a Pennsylvania breeding operation shut down by state officials last week, was a Portuguese water dog whose rescuers say she was leading a life far different from her counterpart in the White House.
    The Humane Society of the United States says the young Portuguese water dog was seized during the June 23 raid of the puppy mill in Emmaus — an indication that large-scale breeders, as many feared, have begun churning out PWDs in anticipation of a Bo-fueled surge of interest in the breed.
    “When President Obama brought Bo into the White House we were afraid that puppy mills across the country would begin to capitalize on this trendy breed,” said Scotlund Haisley, senior director of Emergency Services for The HSUS. “This little girl, whom we have begun to call Liberty Bell, has led a much different life than the presidential dog. She is one of millions of dogs raised in horrendous conditions in puppy mills every year, and proves that no breed is immune from these cruel mass-breeding facilities.”
    Liberty Bell will be sheltered in the Washington area. She and the other 216 dogs removed from cramped and unsanitary conditions at the kennel have been placed with shelters and rescue groups throughout the rnortheast, and will soon be made available for adoption.
