NEWBERG, OR (KPTV) - Yamhill County deputies said a report about five abandoned puppies being found was false.
The Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office posted about the puppies on Facebook on Thursday.
Deputies said they were told four German shepherds and one great Pyrenees were found abandoned Wednesday in rural Newberg.
The puppies were put into the care of Homeward Bound Pets in McMinnville, while deputies investigated the case.
Later Thursday, deputies confirmed the puppies had not been abandoned. They said the person who made that claim turned over the dogs and fabricated a story about finding them.
The sheriff’s office said no criminal act was committed in connection with this case.
The dogs are expected to be available for adoption in the near future.
