BOSTON (CBS) – The two dozen cairn terriers taken from a home on the South Shore have all been adopted from the MSPCA in Boston.
The owner voluntarily gave the dogs up this past weekend, and the agency’s director of law enforcement said the dogs were found in unhygienic conditions and many of them needed dental work.
Now, all of the pups have been adopted, but there are still plenty of other dogs waiting for their forever homes, though.
Shelter Director Amanda Kennedy says interest in the cairn terrier story has brought more people through their doors.
WBZ NewsRadio 1030′s Kim Tunnicliffe reports.
“We have had spillover interest, just getting more people into our facility to see all of the animals that are here, sometimes people don’t realize what wonderful animals are waiting for homes in adoption centers,” said Kennedy.
One of those animals has been waiting for a new home for quite some time.
“We have Angel, who’s a wonderful pit bull mix, and she has been here the longest, and she’s really what we call an ‘easy keeper.’ She’s gonna settle in really well in somebody’s home,” said Kennedy.
