Rochester man praised for saving 17 abandoned puppies

A Rochester farmer is being praised for helping save 17 abandoned puppies, the Associated Press reported.
David Distad said he was walking home from visiting his brother Thursday when he noticed several puppies.
He says he saw the young puppies in a culvert, and some were lying on the ground while others were running around.
Upon finding them, he called Paws and Claws Humane Society in Rochester. Rachel Ramin and her manager arrived shortly thereafter, and initially thought the puppies were dead, she told WCCO.
"And we just started wrangling them up, getting down, giving them happy voices, so they weren't scared to come to us, since they didn't know who we were," Ramin said.
The puppies were very thin and hungry, and were brought to the shelter in a car.
The puppies are 2 to 4 months old, and expected to be available for adoption in a week.
Ramin credits Distad for saving the lives of the puppies and finding them when he did.
"It did turn out well. These guys are pretty lucky to be where they're at now," she said.
