An Albemarle County man has his dogs back home after animal patrol seized them. Forty-eight-year-old Eric Fulando Johnson's dogs were found outside in 13-degree weather last week.
Up until Wednesday, the three pit bulls were in the care of the Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA.
According to court documents the judge ruled the dogs had not been abandoned, treated cruelly or denied adequate care.
