BOSTON (CBS) – Eighteen Shar Pei dogs were taken from a hoarding house in Braintree and are now up for adoption at the MSPCA.

Angell’s Law Enforcement and Adoption Center says the dogs were living in filthy conditions and suffering from eye and skin disorders.

The dogs are under-socialized and scared, according to the MSPCA.

Four of the dogs have been spayed and returned to the owner.

One of the dogs was extremely aggressive and unable to be placed up for adoption so the MSPCA humanely euthanized him, they said.

Now, at least three dogs are ready to be adopted and the rest are being readied for adoption as they work with the behavior analysis team.

All of the dogs need surgery to remove part of their eyelids, a common condition in Shar Pei dogs.
