The dog breeder who hired a woman to transport her dogs that died after being left in a car claims she didn’t do anything wrong.
Reporter: Do you have anything to say about the death of your dogs?
Rosenow: Yes, that I’m innocent.
Reporter: Why did you hire that woman?
Rosenow: Why did I hire that woman? Because I didn’t have anybody else.
Albuquerque Animal Welfare officers say Annette Rosenow hired Sara Mauter to transport six dogs to Texas last month.
However, the dogs never made it. Mauter allegedly left the dogs to suffocate in a car near Lomas and San Pedro.
Rosenow’s charges, in that case, were dropped.
On Friday, Rosenow was arrested on a warrant for a different case out of Torrance County.
She faces 60 counts and a citation for the charges relating to her dog breeding.
Rosenow was expected to be arraigned in magistrate court for that case Tuesday, but it was reset to Thursday.
