Here’s the story of how these three puppies ended up at the Walton County shelter.
“[Walton County Animal Control] picked up three puppies off of Highway 81 going toward Oxford. I was the one who called them in and stayed with them until the officer came. Hannah from Monroe Animal Hospital stopped to help as well. I wanted to give you a little background. When we got there, only one of the males would approach us. We were able to get a leash on him easily, but other two were too skittish. When they saw your officer take him to the truck, they darted into a drainage pipe that they had obviously been living in. We were able to coax one out and your officer got him but the third female was very frightened. She hid in the drainage pipe for over an hour. When she saw an opening, she darted out and took off running. We were able to surround her and get a leash around her and your officer came back and picked her up. All three were very skittish and hard to approach, but after they were caught they did very well and let everyone pet them.” All three are very sweet and are enjoying their kennel and free food with wagging tails!
