The pint-sized canines were removed from a local residence last month on suspicion of being kept in cruel conditions.

Twenty-four French Bulldogs from a single home are available for adoption this Saturday at the Denver Animal Shelter.

The pint-sized canines were removed from a local residence last month on suspicion of being kept in cruel conditions.

“They’re really cute,” said Kerra Jones, spokeswoman for the Denver Department of Environmental Health. “It is rare for us to have so many breeds, except maybe Chihuahua.

Update: There will be fewer than 24 dogs available as the Frenchie breeders claim ownership of roughly half of the dogs.

The event at the Denver Animal Shelter begins Saturday, August 26th at 11am.

The city charges $ 400 for each dog, which is significantly higher than normal adoption fees due to the extensive medical coverage. This also includes a microchip, a license, vaccinations and the neutering or neutering of the animal.

They should “arrive early and be prepared for longer waiting times than usual,” the staff said.

The French have been operated on and treated for a variety of medical problems, including breathing problems typical of the breed. The medical staff also removed rotten teeth and treated the animals for giardia, worms, serious infections and bite wounds.

The city anticipates strong demand for dogs, which the American Kennel Club ranked sixth most popular in 2016, largely due to their portability and delightful urban nature.

Police said the dogs were found in dire conditions.

The dogs lived in southeast Denver, where a “well-known woman in the French bulldog rescue community” lived, 9News reported. Marleen Puzak faces 12 aggravated animal cruelty crimes and 35 misdemeanor charges related to the case, according to court documents.

The police came to Puzak’s home in early July after receiving calls about the dogs. According to an official’s affidavit, an officer smelled dog urine and feces from a meter outside the house. The conditions were so unsanitary that the officer put on protective clothing before entering, the affidavit says.

Some of the 35 dogs roamed the house while others were in boxes. The official found twelve dead dogs in two freezers, according to the court document.

A total of 35 dogs were confiscated from the apartment, but only 28 will be offered this weekend, according to Jones, including 24 French Bulldogs, one English Bulldog and three Boston Terriers. Adoption fees for non-French people are in the normal range of $ 95 to $ 150, not $ 400.

Three confiscated dogs were euthanized after assessments of their medical and behavioral conditions, while others were sent to other jurisdictions. There were some pugs in the mix too, Jones said.
