Puppy found before it could be mailed to Georgia

Thirty-nine-year-old Stacey Champion attended an administrative hearing today at Minneapolis City Hall to try to reclaim the 4-month-old Schnauzer mix. But authorities denied her request.

Champion was charged with animal cruelty after postal workers discovered the puppy last month in a sealed box with no air holes. Authorities say the puppy likely would have died if shipped. Postal workers discovered the package because it was moving.

At today's hearing, Champion claimed she put air holes and water bottles in the box. She says her son was deprived of his birthday gift.

The Minneapolis Animal Care and Control shelter has cared for the puppy, named Guess, since the incident.

Thank God it was caught in

Thank God it was caught in time and the puppy is Ok. Thats more than I can say for that poor hairless kitten ( certain breed)...who was recently shipped across country in the cargo compartment of the airplane..in fridgid temperatures from one side of the country to the other. It was barely alive by the time it reached its destination and died in less than an hour. No one who even half way cares about animals would do something like that.

What a crazy stunt! I thought for sure that I was going to read she had holes or an oxygen pump of some kind. What did she think was going to happen? Just when you think you have heard it all...!

This is simply a case of mis identification. This is not a person who is crazy or stupid or lacking a brain at all. This is a person who should be irradicated from the gene pool.

I'm surprised the lady's kid is still alive if this is her method of thinking. Hey you--out of the gene pool!!!!
