Volunteers from Save Our Street Dogs (SOSD) were trying to catch some female dogs for sterilisation last week, when they found 2 adorable puppies in the area as well.
On closer inspection however, the volunteers found that the puppies were infested with ticks and fleas of all shapes and sizes.

The puppies are two months old and have been named Linus (black) and Lucy (brown).
