Denton County site of dog dumping

DENTON, TX

Police were summoned early Tuesday to an area of Flower Mound after residents reported dozens of mixed-breed Maltese dogs running loose. Within an hour, 51 of the dogs had been rounded up. They were in relatively good shape and will now be put up for adoption unless the owner shows up to claim them.

The Dallas Morning news reports that one night earlier, another herd of dogs, this time cocker spaniels, was found in similar circumstances about 20 miles to the north in a rural area near Sanger.
