Tiny pups dumped in box at bus stop

First published in News

Two adorable puppies are desperately seeking a loving new home after being dumped in a cardboard box near a bus stop.
 

The Staffordshire bull terrier cross puppies, named Snuggle and Puggle, are now in the care of the Blue Cross animal charity, based in St Francis Fields, Northiam.
 

Maria Steel, centre manager, urged kind-hearted animal lovers to come forward to re-home them.
 

She said: “Snuggle and Puggle and their two siblings were far too young to be separated from their mother.
 

“It’s really lucky they were found when they were, or they probably wouldn’t have survived.”
 

A passer-by was making his way to the bus stop in Cranbrook when he spotted a cardboard box which appeared to be moving.
 

When he went for a closer look he discovered four tiny puppies clambering for space and whimpering.
 

The four – who are believed to be brothers and sisters – were dumped without their mother.
 

The man managed to re-home two of the pups but couldn’t find takers for little Snuggle and Puggle.
 

He called Blue Cross for help and the pair are now being cared for by a volunteer foster carer until they are old enough to find permanent new homes.
 

Maria Steel pleaded with those who cannot afford to keep their pets to bring them in rather than dumping them on the streets.
 

She said: “Sadly, unwanted puppies and kittens are becoming more common. If only more people would get their pets neutered, we wouldn’t be faced with the problem of so many pets being given up.
 

“But if you do have pets that you can’t care for, please come to an organisation like Blue Cross for help, rather than abandoning them to fend for themselves.”
 

Snuggle and Puggle will be available for re-homing in the next couple of weeks.

If you are interested then contact the Northiam re-homing centre on 03007771510.

Obviously the actions of a brain dead moron - there's no excuse for this at all - and what of the plight of the mother? She's probably missing her babies terribly.

Obviously some idiot who is too lazy or thinks it would be embarrassing to take the puppies to a rehoming centre. I do hope the poor puppies are not going to be saddled with those names though. They have suffered enough!

I will have one, they are beautiful. I cannot understand people do this, when Raystead is only just up the road.

Probably some backyard breeder unable to sell the poor wee things, heartlessly dumped them. This is a classic example why people should always RESCUE NOT BUY. We all need to bang home the message
that we will never line the pockets of these 'breed for profit' backyard merchants.

I KNEW it was gonna be Staffies before I even clicked on the article. It reads: “Sadly, unwanted puppies and kittens are becoming more common." It SHOULD read, "Sadly, unwanted STAFFY puppies are becoming more common..." That's because this breed attracts the lower level of society who are generally pretty ignorant.... i.e. imbeciles. Neuter the imbeciles, problem solved. In fact that would solve a LOT of problems....
