Second Chance Salem wants to be the voice for two Chihuahua-dachshund mix puppies who were thrown out of a moving truck window earlier this week. On Thursday the adorable little canines, although a bit shy from their unsettling adventure, were reported to be settling in comfortably in their Oregon foster home of Second Chance's co-owner Angie Briggs.
The rescue owners have named the blonde pup Thelma and the red-haired cutie Louise in honor of the "wild ride" the less than one-year-old young canines survived.
According to the Statesman Journal.com, Andaesha K'Treva stated she found the two puppies from an ad on Craigslist and was in her car on 17th and Center Street in the northeast part of Salem when someone opened up the passenger door of her car and plucked the puppies away from her. K'Treva was shocked, and could only remember the color of the truck as dark, but followed the vehicle until she saw the driver slow down and throw the dogs out the window. She stopped and picked up the dogs, and because she couldn't keep them, she turned the puppies over to Second Chance Salem.
Both dogs are now being fostered through the rescue, and their adorable Facebook pictures and scary plight have drawn many adoption offers. Although a bit shy, Second Chance Salem stated:
"The person who adopts them is going to have to be familiar with shy dogs and able to let them just come out of their shell with them and not put a lot of pressure on them. They are going to have to be very patient and not expect a lot from them for the first few days.
I am still deciding whether or not they have a healthy bond or not. They have been through a lot together so they look to each other for support, but Thelma, the baby, would be much more confident if her mentor, Louise, wouldn't act so distrustful."
It's very important to find the culprits who so carelessly tossed the tiny canines out of the window of a moving vehicle.
