    A woman was reportedly roaming around Lynnway Mart, a flea market in Lynn, trying to sell her two Shih Tzus over the weekend, an activity prohibited by the state of Massachusetts. 

    The dogs, unkempt and unhealthy, were purchased for $90 by two Good Samaritans who sought to rescue the dogs. The Good Samaritans then brought the dogs to a kennel in Revere where the Animal Rescue League of Boston was contacted.

    Both dogs were taken by officials to an ARL shelter in Boston, where they were spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. The facility's medical staff also performed surgical hernia repairs on the Shih Tzus.

    The dogs -- 2- and 6-years-old -- are expected to be put up for adoption soon.
