A Lehigh County dog breeder and American Kennel Club judge was cited by the state for operating a kennel without a license.
Dog wardens, acting on an anonymous tip, found 69 dogs and puppies on the Coopersburg property of attorney M. J. Cohen on Monday. Records show Cohen also sold 37 puppies since January.
State law requires anyone keeping or transferring more than 25 dogs in a year to have a kennel license.
"Evading the law only creates more problems for people when they are caught," said Jessie Smith, special deputy secretary for the Bureau of Dog Law Enforcement. "The law applies to everyone, regardless of their intention. It is best for those wishing to operate a kennel in Pennsylvania to apply for the appropriate license and continue to stay in compliance."
