70? …. 70!
That’s a number not even within reason.
Isn’t there an ordinance in the City of Martinez which limits the number of pets?
Are the residents running a “puppy mill” or a kennel?
Investigations should ensue!

Investigations? By whom? The city government of Martinez? Contra Costa Animal Control?
Good luck.

Can we have a follow-up to see if they are going to be forced to surrender these dogs? I don’t want one, but this is excessive and it seems illegal to have that many dogs. People that have no concern for their neighbors really annoy me.

I used to live on barber lane.i actually just got back from house sitting at my old place for the last month and a half.when I lived there,the number of pets was approx 30.the homeowner does love the animals however if it is in fact about 70..I’m certain that an extreme hoarding situation has developed.

Funny that in an update they said the owner of the house was “holding” them for someone (just like drugs, lol). So, they LIED. But, we all knew that.

Those are high priced dogs. They must been breeding them to sell.

They look like perfect shopping cart dogs to me.

I have Poms now. If they are looking for homes, I would take one or two.
