Every time visitors came into the home of Janet Oxlade, they were never allowed to go past the living room. Whether people were there just for a visit or to purchase a puppy from Oxlade, who was a breeder, they were confined to the living room and never invited to see the rest of the home. The living room was kept in fantastic condition, but people started to wonder why Oxlade seemed so afraid to let anyone see the rest of her house.
“We’d had a number of complaints over recent years about this address but never had enough evidence to act on,” Carroll Lamport, an inspector with the RSPCA, said in a press release. “In 2017, local inspectors dealt with a handful of calls and attended the property, but Ms. Oxlade wouldn’t let us in.”
