Jaheim Hoagland, better known as Jaheim, has been arrested after more than a dozen dogs were discovered living in vile conditions at his New Jersey home, with one being euthanized following the bleak disclosure, as indicated by authorities’ report acquired by PEOPLE.
Cops responded to Hoagland’s home Monday morning to investigate a report of a “puppy in distress” and wound up discovering six canines in the carport according to specialists.
“Additional dogs were found inside of separate crates which were partially filled with several inches of water and dog feces,” the examiner said in a news discharge.
Hoagland had already been arrested on an inconsequential matter outside of his home when police discovered nine additional dogs in “varying stages of emaciation” without admittance to “food and water” inside the residence, prosecutors said.
All 14 surviving dogs have since been taken to a local kennel for examination. An investigation is ongoing, as stated by PEOPLE.

Dogs are the most beautiful forgiving loyal creatures to ever grace this earth and u gonna starve 15 of them??? Jaheim deserves the chair.— CERTIFIED BBL GIRL (@MuvaofGotti) September 9, 2021
Jaheim clearly needs professional help because no sane person would have 14 dying dogs in their home, pooping and crying 24/7. The smell alone. I hope he gets that help— . (@_boobasnot) September 9, 2021
Jaheim has already seen his best days, but he really put the nail in the coffin now. Y'all know the pink toes don't play about animals!— ᴅᴏʟʟᴀʀ (@callmedollar) September 10, 2021
