The pups, who are around five weeks old, were found in the cardboard box on top of a bin the day it was due to be collected after they were heard desperately crying. A rescuer from a shelter run by UK non-profit organisation Dog Desk Animal Action CIC took them back to the centre with her to warm them up and feed them puppy formula.

Train your dog for a lifetime of obedience. Behavior problems are the number one reason dogs are relinquished to animal shelters, the number one reason they don’t find new forever homes, and as a result, the number one reason dogs are euthanized.

There were fears the tiny pups, who have not yet been named, would not survive after they were found on April 21.

But they are building up their strength and will be placed with other puppies at the shelter when they are ready.

Michelle Robertson, director of Dog Desk Animal Action CIC, said: "Nilufer came across the puppies while walking in the town.

"She heard their 'mews' and followed the sound to a cardboard box sitting on top of a bin.

"Inside were two black and white pups, not yet weaned.

Find ways to enrich your pet’s environment. Your dog or cat needs your help to stay mentally stimulated. This is important not only to discourage destructive behavior in younger pets, but also to keep your older pet’s brain sharp.

"She took them back to the clinic, kept them warm and gave them some puppy formula, of course they were both very hungry.

"It’s always a worry whenever pups come in so young with uncertain histories and without mum.

"But as each day passes the concern for their health becomes less as we watch them growing stronger.

Dog Desk Animal Action CIC set up the shelter in Turkey following a crackdown on stray dogs this year.

It has 600 dogs in its care and is looking for people to sponsor them to help with costs.

Use Rubber Gloves to Pick up Stray Dog Hair. Does your dogs hair get everywhere, or is it just me? My favorite method for picking up all that loose hair is using a pair of rubber gloves. You put them on and run you hands over your furniture; it’s amazing how well pet hair clings to rubber gloves.

Ms Robertson said: "Currently we have 600 dogs, all safe from vulnerable situations on the streets.

"For example our last intake came from an area where dogs were being injected with poison.

"Many of our dogs have been shot, run over, orphaned or abandoned by owners without the slightest idea how to fend for themselves."
