Seven tiny little neglected poodle and Maltese mixed breed dogs have been left abandoned at a Michigan PetSmart store on Big Beaver Road since April. On Monday, four sickly dogs were found by the pet store staff reports US Today.
No one knows why the person keeps dropping off the dogs at PetSmart; the store doesn't even sell puppies. One dog was left near the trash bin, two others were left in the parking lot, and one pooch had been tossed towards the bar-restaurant across the street.
The dogs, aged two to six-years-old, are in the care and custody of the Animal Welfare Society of Southeastern Michigan.
The dogs are all scared and seem to have no idea what is going on. When found, the dogs were all underweight, terribly matted with urine and feces, and had overgrown nails.
By the lack of care and condition, experts believe these dogs are being dropped off from a local puppy mill where little care is given to the dogs - as their only job is to reproduce.
In May, a young poodle with a tiny puppy stuck in the mother's birth canal was abandoned at the PetSmart. Fortunately, veterinarians were able to save both the mother and puppy; both dogs are living happily ever after now.
