Teens Rescue Puppies They Found In A Trash Bag - Devastated By What They’re Clinging Onto

Two teenagers in Barbour County, Alabama are being lauded as heroes after rescuing some puppies they found in absolutely grisly conditions. As WSFA reports, the puppies were discovered by the side of the road in a trash bag that contained two deceased dog.

The teens, Hannah Killingsworth and Reid Potthoff, were enjoying a day of four-wheeling in the woods, but their good times would come to an end when they heard a whining sound emanating from the trash bag. They looked inside of the bag and were horrified to find 10 puppies struggling to survive.

“It was pretty scary actually. We didn't know what to do, we called for help," explains Potthoff.

Along with the surviving puppies, the bag also contained a dead female dog and another puppy that didn’t make it. The teens called for help right away, and the surviving puppies are said to be doing well as they are being nursed back to health.

"It's a good feeling to know that you did something right, that you could help something so innocent," Killingsworth said.

Investigators in the area are trying to get to the bottom of who would callously dump the bag full of dogs, and they are asking for the public’s help in tracking down the person responsible.
