Gov. John Kasich has signed a bill that cracks down on puppy mills in Ohio. And as Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles reports, he had a little help doing that.

INGLES: Kasich signs puppy-mill bill

The signing ceremony for a bill that sets standards for high-concentration kennels went to the dogs … literally. As Gov. Kasich signed the bill, a bichon named Sammy joined him on the table.

The new law will require registration and vet checks for dogs that are in kennels that produce nine litters or sell 60 or more dogs a year.

It’s a change that Sue Pohler, the owner of a puppy-milled dog, says has been a long time coming for a couple of reasons.

“Part of it was some of the high volume breeders who didn’t want to meet the standards.  Some of it was legitimately conservative members of the Legislature, who were afraid of growing government and more regulations.  But I’m a conservative and sometimes, it’s the right thing to do and you have to pay the price.

The bill will take effect in 30 days.
