K9 dog rescue staff members know these pups collectively as ‘the backseat puppies’.
A Waroona ranger found the pups after receiving a tip-off.
When she found them, they were living inside an abandoned vehicle at a caravan park in Waroona.
Dog waste littered the car.
‘I was pretty disturbed, I don’t like things like that,’ the ranger said.
‘I hope they find good homes, I don’t think any animal should live in that state.’
The ranger said she could not live without K9, where the puppies are residing tem-porarily.
‘Ultimately it is the dog’s welfare we have to worry about in cases like this,’ she said.
A K9 representative said the puppies were about eight weeks old and a mix between border collie and staffordshire terrier. Five of them are females.
They are classed as having a ‘clean slate’, so they will need training and puppy classes.
The puppies are $450 to adopt, plus a $7 microchip transfer fee.
