Puppies rescued in snowstorm nearly ready for adoption
Muskegon Heights — A dog and her four newborn puppies found abandoned in Muskegon Heights during a snowstorm will soon be ready for adoption.
The Flint Journal reports the terrier mix’s body heat kept her puppies alive in the storm until the dogs were rescued around midnight on Dec. 11 by a staff member with Muskegon-based Pound Buddies.
The dogs were later transferred to the Canine Companions Rescue Center, a nonprofit animal rescue group. Operations manager Erica McCarthy says the dogs are now in a foster home and doing well after their ordeal.
She says the puppies, two females, two males, are healthy and will be available for adoption in a few weeks.
Their mother will be spayed and also put up for adoption once her pups are no longer breast-feeding.
