Facebook has been loud with dog lovers demanding that authorities step in and step up for the dogs kept outside in frigid temperatures at the Flat Creek Border Collie Puppy Farm in New York. reports that after this morning’s preliminary hearing in Montgomery County Court, the local SPCA took in 40 of the 66 dogs from the property, and the owner, Herbert Weich has been charged with failing to provide adequate shelter for the dogs in his care.

Most of the dogs are Border Collies, but reports have also mentioned Shih-Tzus on the property. Several photos and videos have shown the fluffy pooches being kept outside in freezing temperatures, with only plastic barrels as their shelter.

Weich has two weeks to upgrade the dogs’ living conditions. If he does, some of the dogs may be returned to him.
