A passerby was taken aback to see a suspicious hand, holding a bagful of puppies, peek out of a moving car.
Before the passerby could do anything, the puppies were tossed out to die on the cold freeway in Spring, Texas, while the car drove-off.
The concerned passerby alerted Harris County Animal Cruelty Investigators, and investigator Michael Allan rushed to rescue the puppies.
He was shocked to see eight cold and starving puppies cramped together in a pile.
These innocent babies hadn’t even opened their eyes yet. The puppies were saved from the horrors of the busy freeway, and taken to the hospital.
But sadly, one of them didn’t survive. The other siblings are being bottle-fed, and kept warm in soft blankets.
The puppies will be placed in a temporary foster, till their health stabilizes.
Meanwhile, a cruelty report has been filed, and investigators are on the look-out for the perpetrator of this inhumane act.
Charges of animal cruelty await this sadistic person.
Animal cruelty investigators have urged people to keep an eye out for such cases of animal cruelty or abandonment. Any such incident can be reported at (832) 927-PAWS, or online via Harris County Animal Cruelty Taskforce.

Lucky Elderly Man Is Greeted Every Day By A “Friend” Who Crawls Out Of The Ice:
We’ve all seen some unique and unlikely friendships over the years, but this one here may take the cake!
One day, a starving otter appeared at an elderly man’s door wanting some food. Ever since, Seppo Laamanen, 65, and Iivari the otter have been inseparable best friends.
It all started when Seppo fed worms and fish to the small and malnourished otter who was clearly looking for food.
After that, the friendly animal repaid the kindness by visiting the man at his home in Punkaharju in easter Finland. This was the start of something special.
There’s no way Seppo could’ve ever imagined it’d all lead to this. This adorably unique friendship is one for the ages, and it’s something you have to see to believe.
There’s nothing like the bond between two friends regardless of the species! 🙂
10 Of The “Most Loyal” Dog Breeds On The Planet
Giving love and support to humans is something that some dogs do better than others.
While many dogs love everyone they meet and are willing to take treats or belly rubs from anyone, the pups we found are just the opposite.
These 10 dogs are some of the most loyal breeds on the planet. They are rock steady in their loyalty to their owner no matter what.
When the American Kennel Club (AKC) lists loyalty to describe the temperament of the Akita, you know they mean business. The beautiful double-coated working dog of Japanese ancestry is considered hardwired in protecting those she loves. They should be socialized with other dogs and people from the time they are puppies. Their silly, fun, but dignified personalities round out the loyal Akita.
This working dog is smart, full of energy, and oh so loyal to their family. They get along great with kids and have an innate instinct to protect their pack. He’s a watchdog with a heart of gold who oozes dedication to his owner.

This merry hound is friendly, curious and incredibly loyal. While he doesn’t mind the occasional couch potato time, this spunky pooch is energetic and merry. A fun fact about this hound: the breed standard is for 13 inches and under and another in the 13-15 inch category. No matter how you size him, these adorable dogs just want to cling to you.
