Nuedd, an Imgur user, discovered ten abandoned pups in a cardboard box in Alberobello, a small village in southern Italy. Nuedd tried to find their mother, but there was nothing around. However, that’s not even the worst part.
When discovered, it seemed that these poor puppies have been soaked in something. It ended up being their own urine, which is why their coats are stained yellow.
Nuedd then quickly took them to the vet. Unfortunately, two of the 10 puppies died shortly after arrival. One puppy, fortunately, has been adopted. Seven more are still awaiting homes.
Apparently, there is a problem with stray animals in this small, historic village that only has about 11,000 inhabitants. Nuedd laments the fact that she can’t help all the homeless animals she encounters.
“We wish we had a home to shelter all of the animals we meet along the road,” Nuedd wrote on her Imgur account. “All of the abandoned cats and dogs, and the stays [sic] who eat what they can find in the bins.
One day, when we do finally settle down and have a place I know that we’ll take in every animal we can. It’s the least we can do.”
Hopefully these poor puppies will find warm, safe, and dry homes soon.
