Puddles and Cuddles Were Left in a Burning Truck.It was late January when the Mesa Fire Department rescued two Shar-Pei puppies from a car that crashed and caught fire. According to news reports, the crash happened at a QT near McKellips and Country Club Drive just before 11:30 p.m. on January 29. Mesa Police seized the two pups who were then transferred to an overnight clinic prior to coming to the AHS' Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital™. The puppies, both 4-month-old females now named Puddles and Cuddles, have been in AHS’ care since.
Fortunately, both pups just had a couple of minor scabs on their paws, but were being held under protective custody until their court release to AHS. The case is currently ongoing through the Mesa Police Department.UPDATE: Cuddles now lives in Chandler with two other canine siblings and Puddles now resides in Phoenix.
