18 More Dogs Seized From NW Minnesota Home

ROSEAU, Minn. (AP) — Authorities have seized more dogs from a rural home in northwestern Minnesota.

WDAZ-TV reports 18 more dogs were seized from the rural Roseau home. That brings to 36 the number of small dogs seized from the home by the Roseau County sheriff’s office.

The dogs had matted fur and were covered with feces in a heated garage area. The dogs include dachshunds, Shih Tzus and Shelties.

All of the dogs were taken to the Pennington County Humane Society in Thief River Falls and will be put up for adoption.

Authorities are considering whether to bring charges against the woman who owned the animals.
