Tiny Hairless Mystery Puppies Rescued

April Livingston | April 24th, 2019

It was a very cold morning in the winter when a man on his way to work came across something unusual. He found six tiny animals who desperately needed his help—and he was happy to come to their rescue. The puppies were very small and completely hairless and huddled in the woods together. They very young and too young to be away from their mother who was nowhere to be found. The puppies skin was chapped and pink and they almost didn’t look like dogs. The man who found them gathered up the puppies and took them to a local shelter in Alabama where the staff was horrified by their condition.

The puppies smelled so terrible that the staff had to wear masks to give them a bath. Each of the puppies had scabies, were very cold, and very malnourished. None of the puppies had fur, so it was nearly impossible to determine their breed. The puppies only weighed five pounds, so they assumed they were a small breed. Some of the staff thought they were cocker spaniel mixes because they had curly fur when they arrived. The shelter posted on Facebook, saying they needed help with medical bills and care for the puppies, so they were brought to the Auburn Veterinary College for treatment for their scabies and each dog was placed in a foster home.

Two homes stepped forward to take in the puppies, each taking three of them into their home. The puppies needed constant care and had medical needs, so these homes were instrumental in their healing process. They received medicated baths and plenty of food and they grew like crazy and their fur returned—but they still didn’t know their breed. They thought perhaps they were Great Pyrenees poodle mixes, so they did a DNA test. The results came back that they were 100% Great Pyrenees. The puppies have grown like crazy—they are all over 100 pounds and will be ready for their forever homes soon!
