KOOTENAI COUNTY, Idaho -

Update: Upon further investigation, the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office has discovered that the puppies found in a pillowcase were actually discovered in Washington. The person who found the puppies brought them across the state line and turned them in to law enforcement in Kootenai County. For that reason, the case was turned over to SCRAPS. Anyone with information on the case should contact Crime Check at 509-456-2233.

Previous coverage:

On July 4, a Kootenai County resident saw someone from a truck throw a pillowcase out of their window on Elder Road near Frost Road. That citizen stopped to investigate and was startled when the pillowcase began to move. The Kootenai County Sheriff's Office says the person opened the case to find two small puppies covered in ticks inside. 

The Sheriff's Office is now trying to find the person or persons responsible and are hoping you can help. 

The witness told the Sheriff's Office the truck was a passenger type truck, possibly black in color and with a diesel engine. 

The Sheriff's Office says the pillowcase was zip-tied closed and once opened, the citizen found the two puppies covered with ticks. One of the puppies had several cuts and appeared to have a broken back leg. 

The Kootenai County Animal Control Officer investigating the incident says the puppies are about 3 months old. Bother are being treated for ticks, possibly ringworm and have been vaccinated. The puppy with the broken leg remains under the care of a veterinarian in hopes that they can save its leg. 

The puppies are brindle in color, possibly a Sheppard mix breed, and there is one boy and one girl. 

At this time, it is unknown if or when they will be available for adoption. 

If anyone has information on the individual(s) responsible for abandoning the puppies, they are asked to contact the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Animal Control Section at (208)446-1300 or by email http://www.kcsheriff.com/anonymous-tip.html
