A pair of ‘defenseless’ visually and hearing impaired puppies were thrown out of a car in west London.
Lurcher kids Wendy and Wilson, who are believed to be siblings, were rescued by a witness who said they saw them thrown out of a car window.
Fortunately, the three-month-old puppies were not seriously injured during the incident, but there were signs of neglect with them both severely dehydrated and underweight.

They were taken to the Dogs Trust West London Rehoming Center in Harefield, where they are recovering under the guidance of caregivers.
Richard Moore, center manager at Dogs Trust, said: “This is one of those incidents that is so shocking that one can hardly believe anyone would do such a thing to two defenseless puppies who, in addition to being extremely small, and bad ones also have impaired vision and hearing.
“These puppies were allegedly thrown out of a car window and rescued by a witness who saw what happened.
“They brought them directly to us here at the center, where we immediately had them checked by a veterinarian, who found out that they were fortunately not seriously injured.
“But they were in very poor condition from being dehydrated and severely underweight.
“They were taken to the night’s vets for dehydration and further veterinary treatment.
“It was also discovered that the puppies had been born with a congenital abnormality, leading to each of them having a hearing or vision impairment.”
Both dogs are currently looking for new homes.
Wilson was born deaf, and although he can see quite well at the moment, his vision is likely to deteriorate as he gets older.
He is described as “a bundle of fun and enjoys nothing more than playing and cuddling.”
Wendy was born blind and with a hearing loss, although she can hear some sounds.

Because of their disability, it is important that they find homes with safe gardens and environments that do not change too much.
They ideally need to live with another calm dog that they could learn from.
