Fostering in New England!!
Welcome the 'Pittie Puppies' These babies were rescued, by Mrs Mary & Sarah, from the back of an old man's pickup truck in a local shopping center parking lot. There were originally 8 babies crammed into a tiny cage, with a FOR SALE sign, in the blazing summer sun. Mrs Mary and Sarah managed to talk the man out of two of the puppies that looked the smallest and weakest. When they went back, two days later, the took the remaining 3 from him as well.
After arriving at the rescue, all 5 puppies became deathly ill. Unfortunately, the tiniest of them did not survive. One of the surviving 4 already has a home. The three puppies that came to PAWS are Hutch, SJ (aka Junior), and Nelly.
