  • The fact that they would not let you come in was definitely a huge red flag. This screams puppy mill. I don't know what the laws are in your area but call the police and see what they say and then on Monday call animal control. Take pictures of the pup and I would get him to the vet asap so that the vet can document everything. If he has that many fleas he probably has bumps and I imagine his skin is not in great shape either. Keep an eye on the pup because he could become anemic from the fleas.   He probably has not had his shots but when you get him to the vet you might want to hold off on the vaccines for a week or two because his poor little body is probably on overload because of the condition he is in.  The vet will be able to tell you for sure whether to do in then or wait a little but.  Good luck with the pup.

  • The police are open on Sunday and where I live they have to be called in to get warrents to go inside the house to check out conditions. So go ahead and call them today. There are probably more babies in that condition not to mention the parents.

  • Animal Control . The police are not going to get a warrant for a welfare visit on DOGS on a sunday.
    Call the local animal control file a complaint.
    Your question is really confusing.. they lost a dog you go for a rides? I dont get it.

    You should take every new dog to the vet within 72 hours of getting them
    Good luck

  • The Humane Society in your area. They should come out and see if there are any more puppies there being treated the same way. Good for you if you do report them and save other puppies.

  • Animal control or SPCA

    you can also file a report via 911 or your local sheriffs office, they should be open 24/7 ;)
