Two pet dogs found dead in the same car have left the owner’s heartbroken.
Pet Duck has been euthanized, while Pet Gate, who lives with her family in a small, one-story home in the heart of Washington, has not been able to find a new home.
In late April, the owners of a small dog and a cat found dead on the side of the road in a car in the small city of Alexandria, Virginia, had a close encounter with death.
They were on their way home when they were pulled over by police, who found both pets dead, according to The Washington Times.
“The next thing you know, you have the police officer say, ‘We need your dog,’ and the dog’s dead,” Katherine Dunn, the owner of Pet Duck and Pet Gate told the paper.
The dogs had been dead for at least five days, and police said they were still in the process of determining their cause of death.
The dogs were named for the pet owners, a retired police officer and his wife.
The couple told the newspaper that Pet Duck was a “tough, sweet, loving, affectionate dog,” while Pet Dragon was a smaller, “cute” breed of German shepherd.
“I can’t believe this happened to me,” Dunn told the Times.
“I just can’t.
You can’t explain this.
Both dogs have been identified as the owners’ two golden retrievers, the paper reported.
Police said the dogs were not aggressive or aggressive-looking.
