Refugee Puppies From Egypt Looking For New Homes In U.S.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) --  Two dogs from Egypt are in need of a good home here.

Robyn Urman, a pet rescuer in Tenafly, N.J., said she received a Facebook message from an animal rescue volunteer in Egypt, who said two puppies, Cleopatra and Cairo, needed new homes.

The volunteer asked if Urman be willing to take the dogs.

Urman agreed and the pooches were on a flight to New York.

Their breeds are a mystery but Urman said they are Egyptian native -- or so that's what's on their paperwork.

When the pups arrived, they were a bit malnourished but are now healthy and are looking for new homes.
