    It's the story that's never been told on television. The story of Jackie Baucom, the estranged wife of David "Slim" Baucom, the owner of a number successful strip clubs in the Charlotte region. Her husband, most recently, has been tied to the Former Mayor of Charlotte, Patrick Cannon. Cannon pled guilty to corruption charges, and admitted to taking bribes from an area club owner.

Cynthia Braden essentially rescued these bulldogs, after their first owners couldn't keep them anymore. But she says she is fairly certain one or two of her dogs came from a puppy mill. Braden said, "They're not in it for the love of the dogs, so they don't take care of them like they should - they don't feed them, or clean them like they should."

Puppy mills are all across the state, and are usually mass breeders who keep a large number of puppies at once, and sell them for profit. It's usually not the best way to rear a family-friendly dog.

Dog rescue groups have been lobbying outside of the legislative building in Raleigh, hoping lawmakers pass a bill that could shut down puppy mills across the state.

Lawmakers could pass the bill in the short session, discouraging puppy mills and encouraging adopting from shelters or rescues.
