AUBURNDALE – Dozens of small breed dogs, mostly Yorkshire terriers, Chihuahuas and dachshunds, were seized from a breeder here Tuesday.

The dogs were in various stages of health, ranging from good to dirty with matted hair, authorities said.

Pat’s K-9 Kennels is run by Patricia Cooper, 68, who lives at the 120 Dairy Road address, said Polk County sheriff’s deputies.

About 40 dogs were seized from the kennel around 5 p.m. Tuesday and are to be examined by a veterinarian at the Polk County Animal Control facility in Winter Haven today. Cooper gave up her claim to a majority of the dogs, but all the dogs were taken for examination.

“It appears Ms. Cooper is unable to care for the large amount of dogs on her property,” said sheriff’s spokeswoman Carrie Rodgers in a news release Tuesday night.

Cooper was charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty.
