MARFA - We have new information on the story of the dogs being hoarded in Marfa.

The dog owner, John Klusek, was arrested on Friday charges of animal cruelty.

He has since bonded out of jail.

Last month, his neighbors discovered dozens of dogs being hoarded inside his home living in filthy conditions.

Feces covered the floors and neighbors say the pups were living in their own filth and waste.

Even worse, the dogs had apparently been killing each other off in order to survive.

At last check, 13 dogs were rescued and six were still waiting to be picked up.

The dogs are being rehabilitated at a local dog shelter.
