NANAIMO – An emaciated pit bull and her eight neglected puppies, whose teenage owners advertised them for sale on craigslist.org, are recovering at the Nanaimo SPCA.
Some of the underweight, dirty and dehydrated six-week-old pups were only hours from death … The smallest was nearly comatose and not expected to survive. All of the puppies suffered from massive parasite infections and required emergency veterinary care.
The teenagers will not face animal cruelty charges since they were co-operative and remorseful.
