In San Antonio, Texas, another litter of six abandoned puppies arrived at the overcrowded shelter. These lucky little ones were saved “right off the ACO truck late last night,” Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC posted on the organization’s social media page.
“We were called immediately to help. After we said YES to the first four puppies, the shelter told us there were two more. We are at full capacity right now but just watch the video and how could we say no. How? Just look at them.”

By Wednesday, all of the puppies were rushed to the rescue’s San Antonio veterinarian partner. Five of the puppies are suspected of having been from the same litter. The little Boxer mix came in at the same time and seemed to have be protecting the smaller puppies as best he could. All of the pups have been severely neglected; obviously having lived outdoors and fending for themselves.
All have sarcoptic mange which is highly contagious and therefore they will be quarantined for at least a month. They also suffer from anemia, malnutrition and tick diseases.
The puppies all have names and have become the “Zodiac Pups.” They are all male and estimated to be only eight-weeks-old. Welcome Aries (top left), Libra (middle left), Capricorn (bottom left), Scorpio (bottom middle), Sagittarius (top right) and Gemini (bottom right.)
Welcome to the world little ones; you are indeed very lucky. From this day, your lives will count.
