EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - Three dogs in desperate need of a home have a better chance at adoption. 

Turtle, Piper and Jilly were flown in to Eden Prairie for a shelter in Kentucky where they most likely would have been put down. 

Two non-profit organizations, Ruff Start Rescue and Pilots n Paws, helped make this happen and the volunteer pilot  who flew them says they were well-behaved guests. 

"The dogs were really good, they just curled up," said pilot Laura Herman. "The two beagles were in a crate and Jilly was in back and harnessed. THey went to sleep, they were great."

The dogs that arrived are part of a group of eight that came to Ruff Start Rescue in Princeton over the past few weeks. They will soon be up for adoption.
