'Neglected' Dogs Rescued From Puppy Farm

A dozen dogs and puppies have been rescued from "horrible and uninhabitable" conditions at a puppy farm in Adelaide's north, police said.

Council animal inspectors saw a dog roaming the area after escaping from a Salisbury property, with neighbours raising the alarm that no one had been at the home for days.

Police attended a property on Friday afternoon where they allegedly found the male and female adult dogs and puppies locked in various rooms inside the premises.

Police allege the dogs were left in "squalid conditions" and had no access to food, water and exercise.

Council workers removed the dogs from the house, with seven puppies later taken to a local vet for treatment.

Police said they are continuing their investigations and it appeared no one was living at the home at the time.
