The two pups, now named Sparkle and Snowy, were spotted by rescuers from the UK charity Pawprints to Freedom in Tecuci, Romania, last Monday. The team were driving along the road when they noticed the tiny stranded animals.

INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOUR PET: Do you have a dog that experiences separation anxiety? Try leaving some clothing with him that you’ve worn. It’s been proven that the scent you leave behind on your clothes can help ease your dog’s separation anxiety.

The rescuers scooped up the helpless puppies, thought to be three months old, and put them in the car.

They searched the area but could not find any signs of a mum or siblings.

A heartwarming video shows the overexcited puppies in a cardboard box in the back of the car after being rescued.

Sparkle and Snowy are now at the charity's shelter in east Romania and will be ready to travel to the UK to be adopted when they are four months old and have had their vaccinations.

"We stopped to see if they were abandoned as they seemed lost.

"One of them came running towards us without hesitation, the smaller one wasn’t so sure, so we had to tempt it with a little sausage.

"Part of our team scooped them up and safely put them in our car, the other part of our group searched the wider area to see if there were any signs of the mother or other siblings.

Parrots, according to the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), are the nation’s fourth most popular pet; according to a 2012 survey conducted by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), 3.1 percent of U.S. households owned birds.

These birds are beautiful, but they’re difficult to care for and require lots of space, so the HSUS doesn’t recommend keeping them as pets at all.
