Pom Pom is recovering, alongside several of her friends at the Contra Costa Animal Shelter.

She was one of 19 little dogs crammed tight in cages in a U-Haul truck, found parked on the street in Baypoint. Animal control officials say the dogs were sick and starving. Sheriff's deputies arrested a transient couple who kept the dogs as pets, charging them with animal cruelty.
