An animal charity has spoken of its disgust at those responsible for dumping two pups at the side of a rural road in County Londonderry.

The German Shepherd puppies were discovered in the Garvagh area by a local woman out walking and were in a pretty bad condition and very scared.

“I don’t know how anyone could have abandoned two wee puppies like that,” Megan O’Kane, who found them, told UTV.

However, now named Megan and Mo, the little pair have had a lot of TLC from their rescuer and from staff at the Dogs’ Trust in Ballymena.

It is hoped that after another month or so, they will be ready to be rehomed.
