Hot Dogs!

That's a lot of puppies for one car.

North Texas authorities seized 22 dogs found crammed inside a station wagon with their owner.

SPCA of Texas spokeswoman Maura Davies says the owner locked the car doors and refused to come out when a constable tried to serve her a warrant for the seizure of the dogs early today.

The two puppies and 20 dogs were in the car along with a pot of water, blankets and waste.

SPCA of Texas rescue and investigations supervisor, Courtney Stevens, said in a news release that the car was soaked with urine and covered in feces.

The animals were taken to a shelter and a hearing on their custody is set for Feb. 16 in Denison.

Grayson County constable Michael Putman says the owner does not face charges. She wasn't coherent and the SPCA said it has contacted Adult Protective Services about the woman.

Pottsboro is about 70 miles north of Dallas.
