Toledo, OH – An Ohio man is in the doghouse after being charged for abandoning six puppies zipped inside suitcase next to a dumpster. Howard Davis, 53, was identified using his name and address from the suitcase luggage tag.

A homeless man reportedly witnessed the dumping of the suitcase and the puppies’ mother.

“I saw a gentleman in a silver pick-up drop something near the dumpster.” said witness Scott Snyder. “When he took off, I see a female dog chasing him.”

Maddie, the puppies’ mother, made her way back to the dumpster and was described as ‘keeping guard of something.’ Snyder approached and reportedly found the suitcase with the 4-week-old English bulldog mix puppies inside.

The Lucas County Dog Warden responded.  Officials said it did not take much time to track Davis down. Howard Davis’ name was on the suitcase luggage tag and Maddie was registered in his name.

“Apparently the gentleman who owned them was moving away, and it appears as though they didn’t fit into the move,” said John Dinon, the Director for the Toledo Area Humane Society.

Davis was charged with two counts of animal abandonment – one for the mother and one for the litter of puppies. Animal abandonment is a second degree misdemeanor punishable by a maximum fine of $1,500 and 180 days in jail.  He has been ordered to appear in court next week.

The Toledo Area Humane Society has reported receiving dozens of calls about the puppies – which is not surprising because they are just a suitcase full of cute as can be seen in this photo and video. The puppies will not be available for adoption for at least another four weeks.

“People need to understand that if you have an animal you can’t care for, bring them to the humane society.” Dinon said. “The animal will get good care, and you won’t be charged with a crime.”
