What happened to Petty’s dogs?
I’ve gotten this question so many times, I thought it was time to address it.
Originally, it was explained in the novel, but that part was cut. So here’s the explanation for you dog lovers out there.
Dekker called Uncle Curt from Motel 9 and asked him to go with a vet to Saw Pole to round up Sarx and Tesla and rehabilitate them. Uncle Curt of course complied. Once the dogs learned not to attack everyone who wasn’t Petty, they went to live in Wamego with Uncle Curt, Aunt Rita, China Cat Sunflower, and Bob, until Petty had a permanent residence where she could keep them.
