Puppy Found Freezing in Plane Cargo Hold at JFK

It wasn't exactly first class -- actually not even coach. Two puppies were found freezing at JFK Airport in the cargo bay of a flight that came from Mexico City. 

Customs and Border Protection officers responded to a call and found one of the little dogs freezing, but clinging to life -- sadly, the other had died. 

The officers administered first aid and warmed the survivor.  A veterinarian who checked later found the puppy playful and doing well.  It was reunited with its owner. 

"No matter how uncommon the call, CBP officers are always willing and ready to assist," said Robert E. Perez, director of field operations for CBP's New York Field Office.
