50 Dogs Seized from Va. Home

June 26, 2010

Animal control officers have seized about 50 dogs from a Bristol home after responding to a call about two stolen Boston terriers. Charges are pending against the owners of the home, who were not identified.

Authorities tell the A.P. that the couple breed peek-a-poos and sell them from their pickup truck around town.

Animal Control officer Deena Bouton says a Mendota man reported his dogs stolen and led authorities to the home, which was covered in urine and feces.

Bouton says 40 adult dogs and eight puppies ran free inside the home, and outside the two Boston terriers and two other dogs were in cages.

Bouton says many of the animals were covered in urine and faces, and some had obvious health problems.While Bristol homeowners are limited to owning four cats, there is no restriction on dogs.
