MILWAUKEE - The connection between a dog and its owner can seem like a perfect bond.

But police in Milwaukee are trying to find out why someone would leave a dozen dogs in a vacant home.

The dogs are now with rescue group.

An animal control officer found one of the dogs wandering the neighborhood after it somehow got outside.
