GUTHRIE, Oklahoma -- The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) is seeking the public's help to find a woman who was giving away a litter of chow mix puppies in the parking lot of a Guthrie Walgreens last week.

According to health officials, one puppy adopted from the litter developed neurologic disease. Rabies testing at the OSDH Public Health Laboratory was inconclusive.

According to the OSDH, the puppies were being offered for adoption at the Walgreens parking lot at 1621 S. Division Street, in front of the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Guthrie, on August 17.

Officials say the puppies were being distributed by a woman, from an older white minivan or station wagon with rust. The woman was accompanied by a man. The puppies were between six and nine weeks of age and tan-brown in color.

Public health officials are asking this woman, or anyone who may know her to contact the OSDH Acute Disease Service's Epidemiologist-on-Call at (405) 271-4060 or (800) 234-5963 (24/7/365 availability).

Officials say they need to speak with this woman to gather additional information regarding the puppies and whether they might have bitten anyone.
