Authorities who looked into the case located the rest of the litter, which is now at the animal shelter.READ MORE: Family Of 12-Year-Old Erica Gibson Says Girl Who Accidentally Shot Her Dead In Hazel Crest Had Earlier Posed With Long Gun In Social Media Video
“They are, surprisingly, in pretty good condition, but there are 10 of them total. So, we have a lot of puppies that are four-and-a-half weeks old that are on our care right now,” Schurman says.
She says the four females and six males will be available for adoption by the end of May.
Schurman says after authorities found the rest of the litter, the owners relinquished the puppies and told authorities when they were born — March 27 — and said the litter’s mother is a beagle-Boston terrier mix and the father is a beagle-boxer mix.MORE NEWS: 'I Was Completely Unaware': Brookfield Homeowner On Apartment Complex Looming Large Over Her House, Obstructing Views
