Puppies test negative for rabies disease

Ada —

Six out of seven puppies sold recently in Sulphur have tested negative for rabies.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health has finished its investigation into the June 9 sale of seven Bluetick/Walker Coonhound mix puppies at the Bivens Dog Trade flea market, spokeswoman Pamela Williams said Thursday. The puppies were approximately 10 weeks old with black, brown and white markings. A man in his early 50s was selling them for $100 each.

One of the puppies developed rabies-like symptoms on June 12 and later died. A lab test confirmed the presence of rabies. State health officials tested the other six puppies for the disease, but all six tested negative.

None of the buyers was exposed to the disease.

The state health department has located the man who sold the puppies and the four people who bought them, but officials are not releasing the seller’s name,  Williams said.
