JAY — A Delaware County man and woman were arrested on animal cruelty complaints Wednesday, five days after authorities seized more than 100 dogs at a puppy mill, and are expected to appear in court today.

Sue Davis, 52, and Randall Dick, 55, are being held in the Delaware County jail without bail.

A sheriff’s deputy found 106 Cocker Spaniels and miniature poodles at a Colcord residence near the Arkansas state line on Friday. Nine dogs had died and some others were chewing on others.

The dogs were crammed into cages and most were walking in 4 to 5 inches of fecal matter or their coats were embedded with fecal matter.
