Dogs removed from home

More than a hundred small dogs have been taken from a Northeast Ohio home where a humane officer says trash and feces were piled around the animals and their cages.

WEWS-TV in Cleveland reports 119 dogs were taken this weekend from the property in Chippewa Lake, about 30 miles southwest of Cleveland. Four of the dogs were dead, and others had bite marks or worms. The Medina County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is treating them and preparing them for adoption.

Humane officer Mary Jo Johnson says a woman who lives in the house had started out trying to be a breeder.

No charges have been filed. Johnson says prosecutors will discuss possible animal cruelty or neglect charges this week.
