Small dogs seized from home in Hants County

Six small dogs have been seized from a home in Hants County by the SPCA after receiving a tip. 

The SPCA tells CTV Atlantic the dogs were removed from the home Thursday because their coats were badly matted and they were in need of medical care. 

CTV Atlantic reports there were 18 dogs on the property, but only six were seized. 

The owners were allowed to keep twelve dogs and were ordered by officials to provide them with better care. 

The investigation is ongoing.
