Nine chihuahuas and six pit bulls were discovered May 24 by a Gwinnett County animal welfare official, Gwinnett police Cpl. Deon Washington said Thursday. Four of the pit bulls were pregnant and “appeared to be near delivery,” he said.
An animal control officer on patrol observed a “Puppies for sale” sign in front of a home on Williams Drive, Washington said. No one answered a knock on the door, so the officer later observed several dogs in a fenced area in what appeared to be a backyard breeding area.
