FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) -- The mother of an 8-year-old boy accused of injuring two puppies with bleach is charged in Fond du Lac County.

The 30-year-old Fond du Lac woman is accused of failing to take action after learning about the injured 6-week-old puppies. The dogs, Tina and Turner, suffered chemical burns to their eyes and mouths. A veterinary exam this week shows the male puppy has permanent lung damage that will make him more susceptible to lung infections.

Action Reporter Media says the mother is charged with felony mistreatment of animals and six misdemeanors. A conviction on all charges carries a maximum sentence of eight years in prison. The puppies are being cared for at a foster home. Fond du Lac Humane Society Shelter Manager Renee Webb says they've received many applications for adoption of the dogs.
