Four Puppies Found Zipped Up in Suitcase, Left on the Side of the Road for Dead

On Saturday, motorists in Guilford County, North Carolina, passed a suitcase that was thrown on the side of the road.

However, when a car drove by, people inside noticed something strange. The suitcase moved.

They stopped to investigate and soon determined the source of the movement: puppies.

“These four puppies were found in this suitcase on the side of the road with the suitcase all but a small portion of the zippered closure,” Guilford County Animal Services posted on Facebook.

“The Good Sams saw the suitcase move and stopped. They were shocked by what they found and immediately took her to the shelter.

“These puppies are now undergoing medical screening and will hopefully be put up for adoption or rescue soon. Thank you Good Sam’s for saving four lives today!”

The four puppies, all females, are about 10 weeks old and are most likely some type of pit bull/Labrador mix, the animal service told the Miami Herald.

While staff searched for identifying information on the suitcase, they could not find anything that could lead to the person who abandoned the puppies.

The puppies were all given relevant names (Tumi, Samsonite, Stowaway, and Carion) and nicknamed “suitcase sisters,” according to an update from the shelter.

After their rescue and evaluation, staff realized the puppies would need a little extra work socializing before going to permanent homes.

“The plight of puppies abandoned in suitcase on highway draws national attention!” the shelter posted on Tuesday.

“Good Samaritans brought the suitcase filled with puppies to the resource center early Saturday morning. The puppies are doing well but are very undersocialized, our medical team said. They need special attention and affection.

“For this reason, we will only place them in foster care. As soon as they are available we will share this with the public on our website and here on Facebook.”

All four puppies were made available for foster care on Wednesday and they are looking forward to a future that is much brighter than their past.

According to comments on her post, by Wednesday, two of the puppies had found foster homes and only Tumi and Carion stayed.

With a heartbreaking story like theirs, they will no doubt be in a safe home and work their way into the hearts of their future owners in no time.
