Puppies thrown away in dumpster reunited after quarantine
SAN ANTONIO - Two puppies who were found abandoned in a dumpster in early October are doing well, despite one having to recover from a serious virus.
The puppies, named Crockett and Bowie, were left after a man wanted to drop them off at San Antonio Pets Alive!'s clinic. However, SAPA! does not take drop offs, so referred the man to Animal Care Services.
Instead, the man left them in the dumpster behind the Culebra Meat Market, which is in the same area as the clinic. That's where they were found by SAPA! employees later.
After testing, Crockett was diagnosed with Parvovirus (parvo), an extremely contagious disease for dogs.
Due to the extremity of the virus, Crockett was quarantined from his brother for a few weeks. The two are back together, doing extremely well and happy, according to the clinic. Both have also been tested negative for all worms.
SAPA! says Crockett's hair is growing back, though at a slow rate.
The two are available for adoptions, which you can apply for here.
