Deltona, FL – Animal Control officers in Deltona recently confiscated 33 dogs and eight puppies from two separate locations after getting complaints of people selling sick pedigree dogs.

City officials say one resident at 934 Wilmington was breeding and selling sick Yorkshire terriers, Pomeranians, and Yorkie-Pom mixes. The two-month-old puppies were sold for up to $1,000 each. The resident is not a licensed breeder or seller and has been investigated for previous complaints. Additionally, two residents at 2130 Montecito were breeding dogs to be sold. All three are under investigation for cruelty to animals.

After being confiscated, all 41 dogs were brought to the Halifax Humane Society, where they’ll be examined for health issues.
