Puppies left by side of road in Boca

BOCA RATON, FL (WFLX) - They look healthy now, but on Sunday, some Chihuahua pups and their mom and dad were all left in a box on the side of the road in more than 90 degree heat.

A good Samaritan spotted the box and brought it to the Tri County Humane Society. Tri County says the animals were covered in fleas and had parasites.

The good news is the dogs have made a complete turn around and should be up for adoption soon.
