Dogs Recover After Being Covered in Cactus Needles In Arizona

These pups got into a rather prickly situation.

I know my little puppy loves to explore and sometimes gets into some situations he needs help getting out of. It seems these stray dogs must have gotten into some trouble with a cactus.

The poor stray dogs were found covered in countless cactus needles walking around a woman’s front yard in Mesa, Arizona.

Firefighters tried to help by pulling out some of the needles, but the dogs were clearly in pain. So, the puppies, which are believed to be Chihuahua mixes, were brought to the local vet clinic where they were put under anesthesia to have each needle cactus spine removed.

Thankfully they are pain free now.
