As cold temperatures make their way across Pennsylvania, state police in Smithfield Township saved three dogs from deplorable conditions recently.
Thanks to a tip, police arrived on the scene and found the dogs outside cramped in cages.
The trio of canines were all in poor health with no access to proper shelter in the cold weather. They also had no food nor clean water. On arrival, the dogs were covered in feces.

Despite attempts to find the dogs’ owner, Jodie Simons of Ulster, authorities were not successful. All three dogs were taken to the Bradford County Humane Society for medical attention.
The pups are doing much better now that they have proper care and attention. If it’s too cold for humans to be outside, it’s too cold for dogs to be outside, too.

With cold temperatures and icy surfaces, winter can be a dangerous time for pets. We hope the owner is located in this case and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
More about the rescue mission can be seen in the video below.

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.
