MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — After nearly being buried alive at a North Dakota construction site, nine puppies will hopefully find good homes in Minnesota.
Police in Tioga, N. D., confirmed that a man tried to bury the nine puppies last Saturday. After someone there became aware of what was going on, they quickly went searching for the puppies and uncovered them.
The person who found the small dogs then contacted a local dog rescuer, who contacted Prairie Paws in Jamestown, N.D. That shelter notified Tioga Police. Investigators in Tioga said the case has been turned over to the Divide County Sheriff’s Office.
