APPLEGATE, Ore. (AP) - Oregon Humane Society officials say more than 50 dogs have been removed from a breeding operation in the southern Oregon community of Applegate.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/mqiUzb ) that the breeder is under investigation by a local district attorney because of allegations that the animals were living in unsanitary conditions. The Humane Society says the breeder has been the subject of repeated visits by Jackson County Animal Services. The breeder’s name was not released.

The dogs removed Wednesday included King Charles spaniels, Lhasa Apsos, pugs, schnauzers and other small breeds.

County animal services officers found a lack of bedding, kennels with feces and urine in them, and dogs with feces and urine stains.

The Humane Society transported 41 dogs to its Portland shelter. Jackson County officials are caring for another 10.

The owner also reportedly surrendered 12 birds, including parrots, macaws and cockatoos.
