PLACITAS, N.M. -- Two dogs left behind by a woman killed in a bizarre crash involving a sheriff's deputy need new permanent homes.


State police say a deputy backed out of the driveway late last month and accidentally ran over 68-year-old Linda Baragiola.

Her family is calling for anyone to take in Baragiola's two dogs that she left behind. A boxer-shepherd mix named Scout and a Chihuahua named Chauncey are both females and are about 7 years old. Baragiola's family says the dogs have been together since they were puppies.

A third dog may already have a happy forever home to go to.

If you would like more information on how to adopt, contact Lindsay Sears at or (505) 720-1818, or Lauren Mansfield at (505) 459-8219 and tell them a little about yourself and your home. 

"This is a heartbreaking situation for the entire family but especially for these poor dogs," Sears said. "They are confused and miss their mom. They are currently being fostered but the family would appreciate any serious considerations for a loving home."
