Southfield police have rescued two newborn puppies that were left outside in a tied plastic bag to die.

The beagles were discovered in a bag on the ground tied to a pole outside a home on Nadol, near 9 Mile and Southfield Road.

Southfield Lieutenent Nick Loussia said a quick-thinking resident called the police after seeing the 74-year-old homeowner leave the puppies there.

“They thought they heard kind of yelping sounds from a plastic bag,” said Lt. Loussia.

He commends the resident because he thinks the puppies would have died if they hadn’t called.

The three-day-old beagles were taken to a shelter in Southfield. Lt. Loussia said the puppies are okay.

“There’s no reason in the world to do something this cruel to a couple of little puppies. We do have an animal shelter in the city of Southfield, Almost Home. They always take in unwanted pets for adoption,” said Lt. Loussia.

The owner, whose name hasn’t been released, is being charged with animal cruelty and for having more dogs than permitted by city ordinance.

Lt. Loussia said they removed nine dogs from the home when the city only allows three.
