King Frederick II of Prussia is credited with the following quote - “the only, absolute and best friend a man has, in this selfish world, the only one that will not betray or deny him, is his dog”.

I like to think that most humans would agree with that quote. I say most because someone recently did the unthinkable by abandoning 5 puppies at a New York State rest area along Interstate 684. Now New York State Police Troop K are looking for the individual or individuals' responsible.

On Monday May 6th, according to a post on the New York State Police Facebook page, 6 puppies were found huddled together in a container at a rest area off of Interstate 684 in Bedford, New York. Following an investigation it appears these precious pups have been abandoned and left behind.

Take a look at the puppy picture below and you will see 5 scared little guys (Pitbull mix?) standing in the filth of the container they were placed in. They look wet, tired and weary.

On a brighter side of this story the 5 puppies have received medical attention and are being well cared for until they find their forever homes. A big thanks to Special Needs Animal Rescue & Rehabilitation Northeast (SNARR) and Adopt-a-Dog for their care of the doggos.
