WONDER, Ore. -- Two people are in the hospital after a rollover crash on Hayes Hill along Redwood Highway, and firefighters say that puppies were missing from the wreck.

Both occupants managed to self-extricate before first responders arrived, according to Rural-Metro Fire.

Four dark Belgian Malinois puppies were also onboard, but one of them died. Another puppy was reunited with a family member, and two are missing.

Firefighters searched the area around the crash site using thermal-imaging equipment but were unable to locate them.

Rural Metro says if anyone sees or comes in contact with the puppies are asked to contact either Josephine County Animal Control or stop by the Rural Metro Fire Station in Wilderville.

Oregon State Police is investigating the cause of the crash.


Note: The puppy pictured is from a stock photo for reference, it is not one of the missing dogs.
