Community rushes to adopt mom and her pups

By 7:45 a.m. Thursday, the phone was ringing at the Westside Animal Clinic, with people calling to find out about adopting a female dog and her four puppies. Within two hours, all the dogs had been adopted, said employee Rusty McKenna. The plight of Muffy, a Shuh Tzu and poodle mix, and her pups was made public when veterinarian James Hicks called the Times seeking help. The dogs were left at the clinic on Monday by a woman who wanted them cleaned and dipped for fleas. When the woman didn't return for the animals, the clinic staff discovered she had left bogus telephone numbers. Hicks wanted to make certain that all the dogs were adopted by the weekend. "We have probably 50 more people who left their names and numbers in case any of them (the dogs) get brought back," McKenna said.
