Two small dogs that police say fed on the body of their owner after he killed himself are headed to Indiana.

The Nebraska Humane Society says the two pugs, named Harry and Sally, will meet their new owners Tuesday.

An unidentified Indiana couple was selected from more than 250 individuals or families interested in adopting the dogs. The couple has owned pugs for several years and has been looking to rescue more.

The pugs were found with their former owner earlier this month. Police said an autopsy showed the man had been dead for about two weeks of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Humane Society officials said despite the circumstances, the dogs were unlikely to suffer from any long-term psychological effects.
