Truck With 113 Puppies Crashes On Autobahn | Care2 Causes

Motorists on Germany’s autobahn got an unexpected look at how young puppies are transported from puppy farms to big cities when 113 of them spilled onto the highway after a crash.

There is no further news about the condition of the puppies or where they were taken. Related Stories: Dog Seized From Abusive R...
