19 dogs rescued from basement of run-down mansion in New Jersey

Sixteen German shepherds and three Doberman pinschers were rescued from miserable living conditions at a run-down mansion that served as a puppy factory in New Jersey, officials said.

The dogs, believed to be owned and bred by a squatter at Paterson’s home, were discovered “weak and malnourished” by the city’s Animal Welfare Department and placed in cages, according to the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge.

The animal rescue agency said the house was littered with feces and the cages showed signs of the pooches trying to free themselves from the traps.

The dogs range from young adults to seniors, some of whom need immediate medical attention, RBAR said. The breeder appears to have left with another puppy.

The organization has partnered with West Milford’s Second Chance Pet Adoption League to find homes for the dogs.

The breeder is believed to be a repeat offender, Paterson Cops told RBAR. Officials are conducting a DNA test to determine if dogs may be linked to several other German shepherds rescued in New Jersey and New York over the past year.

“Just a day ago these 19 dogs were living in filth and misery with the sole purpose of breeding. Today, thanks to the rescue, they have a new life,” the organization said.
