Had it not been for a Good Samaritan who noticed a cardboard diaper box on the side of the road in San Bernardino and stopped to investigate, two tiny puppies would have died. For days the eight-week-old pups sat in feces, urine and filth. They had no water, food or shelter. Who can even imagine anyone having such disrespect for life?


“The man found the puppies and reached out on Facebook when someone told him to contact me,” Faith Easdale, founder of the rescue group Dream Fetchers stated. “Can you imagine how thirsty they were in this heat? Can you imagine how hungry these already starving babies were? Scared and wondering what’s happening? Feeling weak and fading. And a kind person takes you out of that box!”

The puppies had spent at least two days in the box and when rescued were dehydrated and lethargic. They were rushed to the  Camino Pet Hospital.

When the puppies arrived at the hospital, the brindle collapsed from dehydration; he was able to be revived with intravenous fluids. Both are very weak, but reported to be in stable condition. They are also being treated for hook and round worms. It may be premature to guess at their breed, but thus far the majority has leaned towards Boxers.

“I guess at the point someone can do this they really aren’t human anymore,” Faith added. “We all have a battle. We are their only chance. Use your voices and fight the abuse.”

    I am interested in adopting one of these puppies when they are released from the hospital. Who do I contact?

    Another example of the human trash who should be hogtied and dumped in the nearest landfill. Anyone who would do this to innocent puppies has no right to ever take one more breath of air. Thank God there was a good Samaritan who found these tiny beings and got them to a rescue. They are now recovering only because of a kindhearted man and Dream Fetchers who gave them the medical treatment they desperately needed. May these little ones gets the safe loving homes they definitely never had.

    Hey Karma ……….. find the worthless pieces of crap that did this and show them what true fear, thirst and hunger feel like….they deserve no mercy….just as they so callously dumped these poor babies.
    Thank you to all who found, rescued and saved them!!! May God bless you and your families!

    Someone had enough energy to put these 2 pups in a box and couldn’t be man enough to take them to a shelter and say you found them in this box? At that point the shelter may question you about ownership, so lie to them, better that, then doing what you did, you scum. These are sub humans who have no feelings for anyone or anything. Walking zombies who need to be on a desert island with others like themselves.

    Heartless and cruel and then someone human came along and rescued them and took them to other loving humans and these puppies are safe. I wish there was some way of catching these monsters.
    I live in Arkansas, but I would love to foster these two

    Baby pitties? We can venture a good guess who is responsible. Dogfighters!!! If the police cared enough, they could get his fingerprints off the box. I’m sure the prep has a record.
