The proposed law is named after Victoria, a German shepherd who was rescued from a Pennsylvania puppy mill after breeding for 10 years.

The dog was paralyzed due to a genetic and neurological disorder called degenerative myelopathy. She passed the same disease on to 150 to 200 puppies she produced at the puppy mill, according to a blog posted at Pasenategop.com.

The bill is sponsored by the state of Pennsylvania Sen. Kirsten Phillips-Hilla Republican representing York County.
