BOCA RATON, Fla., Dec. 10 (UPI) -- Officials in Palm Beach County, Fla., said 50 dogs were seized from an area dog breeder after he allegedly failed to comply with a judge's order.

James Marinakis of Boca Raton, Fla., allegedly ignored a judge's order to have all of his dogs spayed or neutered, The Palm Beach (Fla.) Post said.

County officials said the order to seize the dogs was given following investigations by animal control officials into Marinakis' attempts to breed mastiffs and Shar-Peis together to create a new breed called Centurion.

Officials allege most of the dogs kept by Marinakis at his 24-acre property had limited human interaction and were primarily used for breeding purposes.

Officials told the Post the seized dogs will be examined to determine if they are suitable for adoption.
