BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A pair of Shih Tzus are recovering at the Animal Rescue League of Boston after they were rescued from a flea market in L on Saturday.
An unidentified woman was seen wandering around outside the Lynnway Flea Market trying to sell the Shih Tzus.
Lisa Cutting, owner of Oceanview Kennel in Revere, said the woman was telling people that if she did not sell the dogs, she would kill them.
"So, two different families actually bought two dogs on the same day from the flea market, and it just happened to be they're related," Cutting said. "And the good grace of god, we ended up getting them reunited."
The dogs, ages 2 and 6, were both in need of surgical hernia repairs, and both had matted fur. Neither Shih Tzu had been spayed.
The dogs are doing better now and are expected to be ready for adoption sometime this week at the Animal Rescue League of Boston in the South End.
