In Boston, New York, 18 Labrador dogs and Labrador-mixed puppies have been dumped in Erie County during the past week. Puppies have been discovered in Buffalo, Boston, Orchard and East Aurora. Some of the puppies were pulled from a vacant house and others were found wandering on the side of the roads.
According to the Facebook page for the Boston NY Dog Control, there may be more stray dogs wandering around. All of the puppies appear to be between four and six months of age, are extremely fearful and have similar facial scarring. A description of the pups is as follows; the mystery continues:
“They all have predominantly lab features. Most have been black, but there are a few yellow and chocolate pups. Most are short haired, a few have slightly longer wavier hair. But they’re all the same age, same condition, same scarring.”
If anyone finds anymore of these pups, please contact the local dog control officers to make sure these puppies all get to safety.
Contact the SPCA’s Animal Cruelty Investigators (875-7360) if you have any additional helpful information.
People interested in adopting one of these puppies, are asked to watch for information at the Buffalo Animal Shelter, Sadie’s Safe Harbor Rescue and possibly other area rescue groups that have volunteered to help these puppies with their vetting, rehabilitation, socialization and love.
