Who would ever throw a puppy out in the trash?!
Furever Home Rescue is bringing us the story of a tiny puppy from Newport News, Virginia who appears to have clawed her way out of a trash bag. This little Pit Bull was found dragging a Dollar General bag, and it looks like she was trapped inside. She is only six months old and severely malnourished. What kind of a start in life is this for any dog?
Once she had freed herself from the bag, this beautiful girl hid under a car, which was just the right move at the right time, leading to her rescue by Furever Home.
Furever Home Rescue’s Kelly Martin said, “We think she was tied into it with her head out,” which was the only saving grace for this poor pup.
She must have been so terrified and hungry. We are so thankful the car owners found her when they did! What a beautiful little pup — it breaks our hearts that someone could so callously abandon her.
But on to better news! This little girl is currently safe in a foster home where she is loving snuggles and making new friends. And despite being severely underweight, she otherwise seems to have no health problems.
This sweet pup has been reported to Animal Control and will stay on a mandatory stray hold in accordance with the law. Once this has expired and she has been spayed, vaccinated, put on adequate weight, and deemed healthy enough, she will be ready to be adopted. This girl needs a forever home that will show her all the love she has missed out on so far in life. We can’t wait to hear how she’s doing!
Who would ever look at a beautiful pup and decide it is a good idea to tie them up and discard them with the trash? What goes through the minds of these people when they do this? How can they physically bring themselves to take a member of their family and wrap them up in a plastic bag, as though they are nothing?
It is because of stories like these that we have to become a nation of dog adopters. There are too many dogs on our streets and in our shelters in desperate need of a home. Without people like Furever Home Rescue, who knows how many other dogs would be left to fend for themselves? They need our support to keep going!
