THE RSCPA has performed a mass rescue of almost 100 highly-sought after dogs, including French Bulldogs, Beagles, and Pugs, from a puppy farm in southern NSW.
A tip-off from a member of the public led the RSPCA to the property near Goulburn on Wednesday.
The agency said it acted on a report which detailed serious concern for the welfare of dogs at the property.
