KENNEWICK: People lining up to adopt rescued puppy mill dogs

Lots of people want to adopt one of the dogs rescued from a Kennewick puppy mill.

The Oregon Humane Society says 50 people lined up Thursday morning at its office in Portland, waiting for a chance to adopt one of the 371 miniature American Eskimo dogs seized from the kennel last week.

The Portland shelter received 95 of the dogs, and is the first in the region to have them available for adoption.
