Police raided Alexander’s home in February and removed several dogs from his home.
Officers said the dogs were found dirty and matted hair. Most were thin and some were pregnant at the time.
Investigators said they believe Alexander was using the dogs for breeding.
Police said Alexander kept the dogs crated for so long, some developed leg injuries due to lack of movement.
All the dogs have since been adopted out to new homes.
