In Woodstock, Illinois, a five-week-old male Boxer puppy that had reportedly been stuffed inside of a pillowcase secured with duct tape and tossed out on Route 14 one week ago, has nine siblings, and all of the puppies are doing well, reports the NwHeraldNews.
Woodstock the puppy has nine brothers and sisters and all are being cared for in a foster home through Hoof Woof and Meow Animal Rescue in Gilberts after the owner surrendered the puppies to McHenry County Animal Control. Volunteers from the rescue were relieved, since they had been worried about more puppies from the same litter.
On Friday, Woodstock Police Chief Robert Lowen stated a woman from Fox River Grove confessed to having made up the story about finding the puppy; she now faces charges of felonious disorderly conduct charge for allegedly filing or causing the filing of a false police report. According to authorities, Woodstock is a combination of his mother having been beagle and Boston terrier and his father; a beagle and Boxer mix.
The owner of the puppies had previously told police she had been on her way to teach a class at McHenry County College when she spotted the pillowcase on the side of the road and pulled over to find the pup. It had been a cold and rainy night, and so she took the puppy with her to teach a class and later called the Woodstock Police to make a report. Taken to the Hoof Woof and Meow Animal Rescue, Woodstock and his siblings are all named after Charlie Brown characters and are expected to be ready for adoption by the end of May. Meanwhile a GoFundMe account is helping with their expenses. Read the previous story here.
