Rescued shar-peis arrive at Humane Society

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Ten dogs have been saved from neglect after a judge ordered a Goldendale man to hand them over.

Last year, the Oregon Humane Society took 41 shar-peis from the same breeder's home.

Then, last month, their owner, Eric Calvin, pleaded guilty to a felony charge of animal cruelty. He was sentenced to five years probation, fined $2,300 and ordered to give up the 10 dogs.

Vets are examining the dogs. Many will require treatment for skin infections and entropion, an eye condition.

It's unclear when they'll be ready for adoption, but the Humane Society hopes to find homes for all of them.
