The number of dogs taken from Tiffini Tobe on the night of January 18 (see story here) and sent to City of Long Beach Animal Care Services (ACS) has been verified as six: three adult females and one male and two female four-month-old puppies. It is undecided as to whether the dogs will be released to the owner’s family or listed for adoption.
Shelter manager Ted Stevens said that the shelter is working on their release status with the city prosecutor and law enforcement officials.
All dogs appear to be in good condition and respond well to humans. Four of them are pictured below in their kennels.
