Ogden • A 60-year-old man says he doesn't know how he let his good intention to rescue dogs turn into a hoarding situation that ended with last week's removal of 149 sick and starving Chihuahua dogs from his home in Ogden.
"I don't understand me," Miguel Salgado told the Standard-Examiner (http://bit.ly/XSaEuv ). "I think now: 'Why?'"
Animal services officers and volunteers removed the mixed-breed Chihuahuas from his home and took them to four agencies. Health officials have told Salgado he can't live in the house until it's cleaned out and he will have to replace all his furnishings, including clothes. Until then, he is staying with friends.
