According to investigators, the dogs are a top blood line worth thousands of dollars. The sheriff's office confirmed that residents of the Netherlands are claiming to own some of the dogs being bred. Officials say they are investigating the claims.
Greene County Sheriff Greg Seeley said 43-year-old Dawn Verdeschi was charged with one count of Failure to Provide Food and Water. According to officials, many of the animals were in poor condition and additional charges may be filed as the investigation continues.
Authorities say they are still looking for a second subject identified as Christopher Cella, 55, of Durham. He allegedly co-owned the Hervey-Sunside Road home. According to authorities, Cella has ties to the Rockland County area and has an outstanding warrant from Rockland County Family Court.
Anyone with information on Cella's location is encouraged to contact Greene County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Unit at #518-943-3300.
The sheriff's office said Verdeschi is the renter of the Morrison Road home and a co-owner of the Hervey-Sunside Road residence. The owner of the rental property is filing a civil lawsuit for damage to her property.
The sheriff's office is in also the process of trying to adopt one of the dogs to use for their K-9 unit.
