TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Six bulldog-mix puppies found in a suitcase next to a trash bin in Ohio now have new homes.
Winners of a lottery to adopt the puppies and their mother picked them up at an animal shelter near Toledo on Tuesday.
The Blade newspaper in Toledo reports that one family chosen to adopt the dogs drove two hours from the Cleveland area to pick out their new pup.
The Toledo Area Humane Society received 132 applications from people wanting to enter a lottery it held to adopt the puppies.
The man accused of abandoning the puppies last month in a Toledo alley has pleaded no contest to abandoning animals and cruelty to animals.
