LIMESTONE COUNTY, TX — The Limestone County Sheriff's Office said they are investigating an animal cruelty case after a social media post when viral. As of Tuesday, all dogs at the location have been surrendered to Heavenly Homes.

A Facebook Live from Brandi N Matthew Solomon showed a dog with a massive scar around it's neck. The video was shared all over Facebook. She also sent 25 News photos of worms in the dog's throw up.

Soloman represents Heavenly Homes.

The Limestone Sheriff's Office said they took the call, and the case is under investigation. The dog with the laceration on its neck was removed from the location on Saturday.

The sheriff's office said they went to the location Wednesday to conduct a follow up and an investigation is underway. Brandi N Matthew Solomon also went live during the follow up.

Limestone County investigators are determining whether or not this is animal cruelty, which has now been deemed a felony under the new Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act signed into law last month.

25 News went by the house and talked to the owner of the dogs.

"i take care of my dogs like i would my children, i don't f****** neglect anything," said the owner.

He said he even took his other dogs to the vet Thursday morning and found no health problem.

"They're my life, bro. I raised them since they was puppies, bottle fed most of them," the owner said.

He admits he may have had more dogs than he could handle, which is why he surrendered two dogs on Wednesday.

"Yeah but now I'm down to four, and that ain't too many. Hell I got four children too. Now you tell me I have too many kids?" the owner continued.

Limestone County Sheriff's are still investigating to see if all dogs need to be removed from the property.

The dogs that were rescued are recovering and will need new homes once they're healthy.
