Twenty-one dogs were removed from a home in west Columbus Thursday morning as part of an arrest in a suspected dogfighting ring.

According to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, 13 pit bulls, seven puppies and one Yorkshire Terrier were taken from the home in the 700 block of Dexter Avenue.

Authorities also found one dead dog and narcotics.

The sheriff’s office said they were originally investigating German Sanchez for drugs when they discovered he was involved in dogfighting.

The dogs were taken by Columbus Humane.
