“They looked terrified,” one police officer told BuzzFeed News.
At one point five police cruisers were searching for the black minivan as it passed through Akron, Sgt. Kris Beitzel told BuzzFeed News.
"The puppies were physically OK," Sgt. Beitzel said. "They were very shaken up though. They had urinated all over the inside of the cage. As I reached in to check on them they kept moving back away from me."
"I'm pretty surprised they got as far as they did without being pulled over," Beitzel said. "They'd been on the road for an hour."
