A man has been arrested after eight dogs were found living in squalid conditions at a home in Sudbury.
Suffolk police's Rural Policing Team, council environmental health officials, the RSPCA and a vet searched a property in Talbot Road yesterday.
Eight dogs – including two puppies – were seized from the home as their basic animal welfare needs were not being met.
The puppies were in need of "urgent" medical attention, Sudbury police said on Facebook.
A Suffolk police spokesman later revealed two of the dogs remain in the care of vets, while the other six are in care at kennels.
A man in his 40s was arrested and released on police bail, pending further enquiries, the spokesman added.
The dogs have each been described as a Bull Terrier mix.

Pictures shared by police on social media showed a dog cage covered in rags in a garden that was wet and muddy.
One dog was pictured sitting on a muddy cushion outside the home.
Police said the incident "underlines the important message to only acquire puppies from reputable breeders" and to rehome dogs in need.
