Petified puppies await unknown futures at Odessa Texas Animal Control

Five month old puppies are supposed to be bouncing bundles of endless energy; their tails are furiously wagging, their tongues are trying to kiss each other, and their facial expressions are ones of happiness, yet this unnamed petrified puppy looks terrified and much too afraid to even move.

He and another puppy sit alone in a concrete monument unaware of how cool and refreshing the spring grass would feel beneath their growing paws.

The puppies are listed as Labrador retriever mixes, however many volunteers think they may be mixed with the border collie breeds. (Wow! That makes them smart and sweet.)

These puppies are in desperate need of immediate rescue. They are located at the Odessa Texas Animal Control at 910 W. 42nd Street, Odessa, TX 79762. (Kennel A4)
