“These puppies were so scared and looking at me,” Johnston said. “They needed help.”
While it’s not entirely clear where the puppies came from, Johnston believes they were born on the streets, but the man wanted to clear them out of the area.
“It’s pretty common here that once puppies get to a certain age, and they start to wander … people don’t want them around anymore,” Johnston said. “Because then they’re getting older and they start to reproduce.”
