Police raided a home in Wheeling and discovered 72 tiny dogs -- 71 chihuahuas and a papillon -- huddled in knots in various rooms. "There were piles and piles of dogs," said a worker at the shelter that took in the dogs. The homeowners were breeding the dogs, not hoarding them, and will likely be charged with animal cruelty.
