7 animals made their way back to the United States with Alan and Dr. Dawkins, including 2 kittens, 4 puppies, and 1 dog.
A litter of mine puppies was given to us in the town of Cienguita. We didn’t want to put these young puppies back in the mines, so we took the whole litter with us to our next town, Urique. There we found homes for all but one of these puppies. We brought this puppy back to the United States and her adopter drove all the way down to Chattanooga from Rochester, New York. This person had studied a semester in Mexico many years ago and was very excited to have a street dog from Mexico.
