SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Authorities say animal control workers removed 56 toy poodles from a Taylorsville house.

West Valley Animal Services director David Moss tells the Deseret News (https://bit.ly/2cGgp8J) that a constable was serving papers when he discovered the living room and kitchen packed with kennels for the dogs.

He says the dogs are between 2 and 6 years old and were in fairly healthy condition when they were found, but there were so many in a small area that the accumulated feces made for unsanitary conditions.

The animals were taken to a shelter.

Investigators believe the woman who owned the dogs was planning to breed them, but when they didn’t sell she kept the dogs because she liked them.

Moss says the woman was cooperative, but could still be cited for animal cruelty or having too many dogs.
