The Oklahoma State Department of Health is searching for a Guthrie woman who was giving away puppies last week at the local Walgreens.
One of the puppies, that was adopted, developed a neurological disease. Health officials want to gather additional information regarding the puppies and whether they might have bitten anyone. Rabies testing at the state’s health laboratory was inconclusive.
The female, who was accompanied by a white male, was giving away chow mix puppies in the parking lot of the store in either a mini van or station wagon on August 17th.
The puppies were between six and nine weeks old and were tan or brown in color.
Public health officials are asking this woman or anyone who may know her to call the state Acute Disease Service’s epidemiologist-on-call at 271-4060 or (800) 234-5963.
