Dog And Puppies Saved By Animal Control

Four puppies and their mother are now safe after investigators say they found the mother dog near death and her babies struggling to survive in the afternoon's sweltering heat.
Animal Control told Channel 4 they found an extremely emaciated pit bull with the puppies with her. Animal Control said they got a call from someone who saw the dogs suffering in the 100-degree weather.When Animal Control got to the scene, they say the mom and puppies were in the yard, with no water. The puppies are expected to be okay, but the mom had to be rushed in for veterinary care.The dogs owner, Joanne Symore agreed to sign the dogs over to animal control; but said the mother dog has looked like this before."The dog basically looked like a skelton with skin, it's probably the worst body condition an animal can be in before death," Animal Control said.
