TUCSON - Six, 7-week-old puppies were abandoned in the Tucson desert with no food or water in a cardboard box, Humane Society officials said.
A person found the puppies while geocaching in the area, a release stated.
One of the puppies was dead, while the rest were dehydrated and lethargic. The geocaching man brought all six pups to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, but another died shortly after arrival.
The remaining 4 dogs are recovering and will be ready for adoption after their health is restored.
