    ong> - (AP) Authorities say more than 60 poodles and maltese dogs and puppies have been confiscated from a suspected puppy mill south of Statesville.

    The Humane Society of the United States said Wednesday's raid followed a visit to a home by Iredell County Animal Services Field Operations Supervisor Teri Somnitz, who became concerned about the welfare of the dogs.

    A statement from the Humane Society said officials found the dogs' fur was extremely matted and that they were suffering from a multitude of untreated medical conditions. The agency also said some of the dogs were living in stacked cages that were inflicting injuries,

    Iredell County Sheriff's Office Maj. Darren Campbell said the resident on the property agreed to surrender the animals to the Humane Society. So far, there have been no arrests.
