A puppy that was reported to have been given away at a Bryan convenience
store has been found in Travis County and has tested negative for rabies.
The Texas Department of State Health Services issued a news release last week
about the missing puppy, which health officials said may have been exposed to
rabies. A joint investigation between the Austin/Travis County Health and Human
Services Department and DSHS resulted in the puppy being found Sunday in Travis
DSHS laboratory tests today showed the puppy did not have rabies.
