Our story begins in March 2014 when someone dropped three puppies off on a rural road. When going to town I barely spotted the puppies out the corner of my eye while passing an intersection of a rural dirt road. While in town I picked up a bag of puppy food, then went back to where I had seen the puppies at. Well, they were nowhere to be seen so I figured someone picked them up. Fast forward a few days when the puppies showed up at a hollow log on the side of the road, which is around 200 yards from where they had originally seen.
The third puppy was not at the log. I found out later the puppy had died near the log.
My cousin put an aluminum pie plate at the log and had been feeding the puppies. Shortly thereafter I started bringing them food also. After what felt like a couple of weeks of feeding the puppies I stopped, picked them up and gave them a home. Their first night here was spent on the deck inside of a deer feeder laid on its side, and with a blanket inside. The pie plate was brought home with them. The first couple of days they were food aggressive with the male driving the female away from the food. The aggression only lasted a couple of days as the bowl was filled with dry puppy food at all times.
