A San Francisco man with a dog-walking business will serve 60 days in jail for animal cruelty, according to reports.

 Abraham Taylor, 36, was convicted on four misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty after police found four "emaciated" dogs at his Hudson Avenue home, according to the San Francisco Appeal online newspaper.
 
During the March 15 raid, Animal Care and Control officers found dogs "malnourished and starved, covered in feces and had scabs and scars on their skin."
 
The dogs had to be carried away because they were so weak. All four have recovered, and "doubled in weight" within a month.
 
Taylor will receive three years' probation, $880 in fines, and is barred for life from adopting animals or working in an animal-themed job, the newspaper reported.
 
Two of the dogs still need new homes. Visit their profiles at Petfinder.com.
