Anne Arundel County
Senior Animal Control officials cannot remember a hoarding case involving so many dogs.

The County Executive's Office got an anonymous tip about the Pasadena residence Friday. Animal Control got a complaint about the same location in 2006, but the residents weren't charged.

The Executive's Office expects the residents to face a $50 penalty.

"These dogs were not in implorable condition," says Lt. Glenn Shanahan with Anne Arundel Animal Control. "They were neglected but not severely so."

The dogs include poodles, Yorkshire terriers and poodle/yorki mixes -- smaller dogs are generally adopted more quickly, Shanahan says.

He says people report dog hoarding about every six months, but they have never found this many dogs in one residence.

In Anne Arundel County, a home can't have more than four dogs without fancier license.
