Paper Bag Puppies Find Forever Homes

LEXINGTON, Ky (LEX 18) -- Four puppies found abandoned inside a paper sack in the middle of a Lexington street have found their forever homes.

The four Chihuahua-mixes were just a few weeks old when they were dumped in the middle of Race Street.

“Amazingly they were in pretty good shape to be so young and be abandoned in the middle of the street,” said Ashley Hammond with the Lexington Humane Society.

Squirrel, Maggie, Stella, and Bruce Woofus were rescued by Lexington Animal Care and Control. They later fell into the care of the Lexington Humane Society and foster mom Sandy Sanders.

For five weeks, Sanders cared for the puppies to acclimate them to people.

All the while, dozens of families started lining up, hoping to take home one of the 11-week-old puppies.

“It's just heart-warming to see when the community comes together and cares about these guys,” said Hammond.

One by one, Sanders let Maggie, Stella, and Bruce Woofus go to their forever families. She decided, however, that the runt, Squirrel, was already at her forever home.

“This one stole my heart and she will be mine forever,” Sanders said.

Lexington Animal Care and Control told LEX 18 that they still have no leads as to who is responsible for dumping the puppies.

Hundreds of other animals are up for adoption at the Lexington Humane Society. To learn more, click here. To donate to the Lexington Humane Society, click here
