Five puppies have been rescued from a house in Rugby.

Pawprints, in partnership with Rugby Borough Council, assisted with an eviction yesterday (Thursday) where a number of dogs were said to be living in poor conditions.

Anita Twigger from Rugby Pawprints said: “As a result of an eviction, Pawprints took five 11 week old Staffordshire Bull Terrier puppies into care.

“They were immediately given veterinary treatment at Animal House vets and were found to be underweight. It is expected that all five pups will make a full recovery with a course of antibiotics and the correct diet.”

The five puppies, four girls and one boy, have been named after the team of vets that were on standby for their arrival – Tom, Sammy-Jo, Nina, Charlie and Harriet.

Pawprints have arranged to have the three adult dogs from the property neutered at no cost to the owner, to prevent more litters occurring.

Anita said: “Thank you again to the temporary dog warden and Rugby Borough Council for their ongoing commitment to the plight of Rugby dogs.

“The puppies will all be rehomed as soon as they are fit and healthy, interested parties should contact us via our website www.pawprintsdogrescue.org – all potential new homes will be subject to home checks and will be asked to attend puppy training classes.”
