These Puppies Were Abandoned On The Highway, And He Wants Everyone To Know This Important Fact!

Briggs L. was making a long drive across America’s highways when he and his brother spotted something strange. Two small puppies were near the highway, but there was no other human in sight. The brothers realized that the puppies had been abandoned and left to fend for themselves. They stopped and let the puppies into their car, and the dogs were more than happy to ride with them for the rest of their road trip.

We found them off of Highway 191 and 160. My brother and I were on our way down to Phoenix, Arizona from Colorado to pick up our other younger brother. From what I can tell neither of them were hurt with any life-threatening injuries. But if I had to guess they were extremely on the brink of starvation and I doubt they would have made it much longer…. my brother and I did plan on keeping them but our landlord would not allow it. But I do have a really dear friend of mine who rescues dogs and raises them and she was willing to take both of them in along with her other rescue dog who has now taken them in as her own puppies. I’ll send a picture of the pups with their new mama.

But the good thing is is that I get to see them and take them on Hikes too! So I have something like visiting rights now.

The temperatures there are extremely hot during the day but at this time of year it does get down into the freezing temperatures. When we first got the dogs they were extremely skittish and very scared of loud noises. Most likely because they were fighting off whatever else was out there trying to kill them. But once we pick them up and gave them food and water they fell asleep on both of our laps for the remaining thousand miles of that trip. They refused to get off our laps as they slept.”

What many people don’t realize is that domesticated dogs often die of starvation, dehydration, exposure to the elements, and most often, they are killed by large predators. If you need to part ways with a dog, dropping them off on the side of the road or in the countryside is a sentence for a slow and often painful and frightening death, and he wants everyone to know. The next time you or someone you know needs to give up a dog, taking them to a shelter is much kinder.
