    Residents of an exclusive Miami Beach neighborhood say one of the multimillion dollar homes is being kept in unlivable conditions and is being used as a dog shelter. The house on Hibiscus Island has a history of violations including trash all over the property and bee hives in the trees. A code enforcement officer called conditions not livable, even for the animals. NBC 6's Steve Litz reports. (Published Wednesday, Mar 27, 2013)

    Rodriguez's business partner Jose More said he decided to sell because the buyer, who More wouldn't name, made A-Rod an offer he simply could not refuse. More says Rodriguez also loves the design process and is already planning to buy another home in South Florida with a little more privacy.

    A-Rod is recovering from surgery on his left hip.
