This true story was told to me by a co-worker yesterday. Obviously, he was pegged by someone watching people in the parking lot as a caring person who also had the added bonus of a pick-up truck to easily put the puppies into along with a small child to get attached to the pooches. Luckily, my co-worker is a dog person and because his wife and daughter became immediately smitten with the puppies, he will be keeping them. He already has two chihuahuas. The puppies will grow up to be bigger than chihuahuas because they appear to be Lab mixes.
I am glad the story turned out well for these two puppies especially since my co-worker really is a great guy. But I wonder how many other puppies got dumped that evening by the same people and what will become of them. I hope they all wound up in caring homes.
