The dogs were seen dangerously close to traffic and then walking over to the shoulder close to a flooded canal.
An ADOT camera showed two troopers coming up to the dogs and then walking away.
The troopers returned, but one dog went into the canal and another got stuck in a drain.
Animal control workers rescued the pups and took them into custody.
