PELHAM, N.H. (AP) - More than a dozen dogs have been rescued from living in what police say were deplorable conditions inside a New Hampshire home.

Police say ten dogs and eight puppies were taken from the Pelham home on Tuesday. Police had arrived at the residence after an investigation to check on the health and welfare of the dogs.

The seized animals are mostly pit bull mixes and were taken to a veterinary hospital. Police had located a Rottweiler mix that recently gave birth to eight puppies. Police say one dog had to be put down.

Police say the house was “disgusting” and filled with feces and urine. At least 15 more dogs are believed to be unaccounted for.

Police say the owner of the property is expected to be charged with animal cruelty.
