Thomas Ambrosia tells the Press Enterprise newspaper ( http://bit.ly/U4Muq7) in Bloomsburg he wasn't cited after Monday's search by state dog-law officers. Instead, Ambrosia says he has 10 days to reduce the number of dogs to 25.
Having more than 25 dogs requires a kennel license.
Ambrosia and his brother Albert pleaded guilty in August to animal cruelty after 185 Chihuahuas were seized from their home in Benton, a small town 110 miles northwest of Philadelphia.
Most of the dogs found Monday were elderly female Chihuahuas. Thomas Ambrosia says the dogs are well cared for.
Dog-law officers with the state Department of Agriculture have declined to comment on the visit.
