Nikki Jo Watkins shared the story of the dog she named “Gypsy” with ABC 23 and how she escaped to find the seven puppies she had hidden in a dirt hole and carefully covered with tumbleweeds.  The family took the puppies, who are estimated to be about three-weeks old, and will soon be looking for homes when they are old enough to be adopted.
