BOISE - From the freezing snow, to a warm foster home, Keith Kellum, foster dad, says Barbie and her five puppies are surviving.

"You can see the mamma," Kellum said. "She's come a long way."

But a photo of an injured and emaciated mother, from just last week, is a reminder of their struggles.

Troy Jackson, Northwest Animal Companions executive director says he rescued the dogs from a rural property in Jefferson County.

The mother still has a long way to go. After the accident, she has a broken left front leg and a broken back hip. Both will need surgery, a slow step-by-step process.

Now Jackson says he could be facing criminal charges.

"I'm comfortable with actually going down and turning myself in," Jackson said. "I actually find it quite humorous, but I'm also offended."
