55 dogs, pup­pies seized from home

The Morning Call - - LOCAL NEWS - — The As­so­ci­ated Press

An­i­mal wel­fare au­thor­i­ties say 55 dogs and pup­pies were res­cued from a Pennsylvan­ia home af­ter they re­ceived a call about un­san­i­tary con­di­tions there. The of­fi­cers re­moved 22 cane cor­sos, 16 French bull­dogs, 13 bor­der col­lies, three Pomera­nian-husky mixes and a Dober­man pin­scher from the prop­erty in Lan­caster County.

Of­fi­cials with the Pennsylvan­ia So­ci­ety for the Prevention of Cru­elty to An­i­mals say many of the res­cued dogs were suf­fer­ing from up­per res­pi­ra­tory in­fec­tions and at least one puppy has pneu­mo­nia.

All the pup­pies will be quar­an­tined at the PSPCA in Philadel­phia for at least two weeks as they re­cover.

Julie Klim, CEO of the PSPCA, says “it is a sober­ing re­minder to the public to do their home­work be­fore pur­chas­ing an an­i­mal. This pro­pri­etor mar­keted an­i­mals on a web­site that showed dogs liv­ing in beau­ti­ful en­vi­ron­ments that were not re­motely re­flec­tive” of the ac­tual con­di­tions.
