Animal shelter rescues 11 dogs from field

By The Associated Press

MUNCIE — Nearly a dozen dogs have been rounded up and rescued from a field in eastern Indiana.

Some of the dogs had to be pulled Wednesday from a Delaware County drainage pile, the Star Press of Muncie reported.

The Muncie Animal Shelter was called by someone who saw the dogs running in the field. Animal shelter director Ethan Browning said the dogs possibly were abandoned, appeared terrified and were behaving defensively.

Ten of the dogs were chihuahua-type mix breeds. One was a mixed-breed terrier. The dogs were to receive full medical checkups.
