SPARTA, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities in White County say they raided a suspected puppy mill that contained 275 to 300 dogs.
A dozen different breeds and some mixed breeds were recovered Wednesday at a home outside Sparta. Police said four dead dogs were found, but other animals did not look terribly malnourished.
No one was arrested. The name of the homeowner was not released.
According to WSMV-TV in Nashville, dogs were in sheds, pens and in the overcrowded yard before being removed from the scene.
