When Briggs LocHaven and his brother Chris Vanness were driving from Arizona to Colorado late last month, they spotted two puppies left on the road in what the men described as ‘literally the middle of nowhere’. “At first we thought they were prairie dogs, until we got closer and were able to see exactly what they were,” Vanness told The Dodo. “Then we stopped and got out of the car to check on them. They were friendly and severely dehydrated and starving and our hearts just sank. We didn’t have to capture them — they literally jumped in our car.”
He added: “Over the next 24 hours, we continued to feed them in small amounts… After about 10 hours they started to become more active and needing potty breaks.” The pups continued their journey with the men until they reached the final destination. Once they arrived, the brothers contacted their friend who rescues dogs and asked to help the pooches.
“They both have found an amazing home and family with [another] rescue dog! And they get to stay together!” LocHaven wrote in an update. “Makes my heart warm and happy!”
