Over 100 Mistreated Dogs Rescued from Underground Establishment in Brazil

SAO PAULO – Police rescued 116 starving, mistreated Yorkshire and Maltese terriers from a filthy underground establishment in Sao Paulo, Brazil’s largest city, officials reported on Friday.

The dogs were found in an illegal kennel in Ciudad Ademar, a district on Sao Paulo’s south side, which was run by a 56-year-old man, the city’s Public Safety Secretariat said in a statement.

The suspect confessed to police that he sold the dogs online and had them breed among themselves in order to have more puppies to keep his business going.

The complaint was made by a neighbor who informed a police squad of the “constant barking” coming from the house next door.

The dogs were Yorkshire and Maltese terriers, several of which were caged in groups showing signs of mistreatment and “had nothing to eat,” the Public Safety Secretariat said in its note.

The man was arrested and taken to a police station, where a case was opened for the “practice of animal abuse,” though shortly afterwards he was released.
