Where in the woof are Paris Hilton's dogs?
That's what the Los Angeles Department of Animal Services is trying to find out.
"I have 17 dogs -- lots," the celebutante told Ellen DeGeneres on her TV show last week. "They all sleep in my bed -- well, not all of them, but I let some of them." She added that the dogs "keep having babies, and I feel bad about giving them away."
When DeGeneres asked Hilton why she didn't get the dogs neutered, she said that they all now were "fixed," but later admitted, "well, two of them weren't."
Paris apparently had no idea that, as well as needing a license to drive a car, she also needs a license to have that many dogs in her L.A. residence.
According to Capt. Wendell Bowers, director of field operations for the L.A. Department of Animal Services: "There is a three cat/three dog limit per house, unless you are a licensed breeder."
After getting complaints from several animal agencies about what Paris said on Ellen's TV show, Capt. Bowers and a Spay/Neuter Task Force rep paid a visit to Hilton's home to check out the situation and serve her with a citation.
"We went to the only known address and the house is under construction," Bowers said. "There were no animals, only some construction workers and a housekeeper. We left the citation with her."
So where are all of Paris' pups? That's what Capt. Bowers is trying to find out.
