One of the dogs seized from Gull Lake.

Authorities seized 64 dogs from the Cherneckis property in mid-July after it was discovered the dogs were caked in dirt and their own feces, had urine burns on their paws, and were being kept in a window-less garage.

One-third of the dogs had to be euthanized.

The property is located bout 90 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg.

The Winnipeg Free Press is not accepting comments on this story for legal reasons.
