Williamson and the Hinds County sheriff's department were able successfully rescue both puppies before they suffered any life-threatening injuries.
Despite running a fever, the puppies seem healthy, WAPT reported. Animal rescue staff will continue to keep the puppies isolated for a couple of days to keep their stress levels low.
"We think they are a little feral [and] not used to human handling", MARL Director Debra Boswell told the station. However, she said the animals were in fairly good shape considering what they had been through.
