OMAHA, Neb. (CBS/AP) Harry and Sally, two small pugs, didn't just eat the homework, they ate their owner.

That is what Omaha police say they did after their former master committed suicide and left the two dogs locked in the same house without adequate food.

The pugs were found with their former owner earlier this month. Police said an autopsy showed the man had been dead for about two weeks of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Now, the two pugs have found a new home.

An unidentified Indiana couple was selected from more than 250 individuals and families interested in adopting the dogs. The couple has owned pugs for several years and has been looking to rescue more.

The Nebraska Humane Society says Harry and Sally will meet their new owners Tuesday.

Humane Society officials said despite the circumstances, the dogs were unlikely to suffer from any long-term psychological effects.
