Dogs Rescued from DMX's House

8/24/2007 6:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

KPNX television in Phoenix is reporting that the Maricopa County, Ariz. Sheriff's Department raided rapper DMX's home this morning in Cave Creek and removed 12 distressed pit bulls.

DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was not home at the time. News 12 is reporting a large cache of weapons was found in the home as well.

DMX has a long rap sheet (pun intended), which includes a guilty plea to animal cruelty charges in 2002.

UPDATE: According to DMX's attorney Murray Richman, it was all about the blazing Arizona heat. Richman claims that someone reported the dogs were at risk because of the extreme temperatures, telling TMZ "Earl has a caretaker, who obviously wasn't taking care. Earl loves those dogs." Richman added that DMX isn't even in Az and hasn't been there for several months because he's off working on a project.

DMX was found guilty of the same exact kind of abuse in 2002. THat time he let 12 Pit Bull puppies down in his NJ basement actually GROW INTO THEIR CAGES. They had to be surgically removed. But, oh yeah, 'he loved them'.

DMX loves dogs the same way a wife beater loves his wife, and a child molester loves children.

I hope this tough AZ Sheriff can throw DMX into prison for a very long time, and there is a huge STUD with a rape stand waiting for DMX. What a cowardly, lying, cruel, ignorant piece of crap he is. Boycott DMX.....he's a disgrace to the human race, just like Vick.
