Update 12/2/16: According to the shelter, there was an ‘overwhelming’ response to Micro’s situation. He is safe and leaving the shelter soon!

A darling puppy is struggling at Arkansas’ Humane Society of the Delta. According to the shelter, the pup, who is now five-months-old, was discovered under a dumpster when he was several weeks old.

Today, inside of his lonely shelter kennel run, he is sad, and terrified – unsure of what has happened to bring him to a place so unfamiliar and lonely. On Tuesday, the shelter posted a video showing the pup’s heartbreaking sadness, along with a few pleading words to find someone to adopt or rescue him:

This little fella is Micro. He is so sad and lonely. He has had a rough start in his short 5 months of life. He was found under a dumpster alone. Can anyone foster or better yet, ADOPT him?

On Wednesday, the shelter provided a bit more information about Micro:

He is 5 months old . He is not sick or injured . He was found under a dumpster when he was several weeks old . Good loving temperament

Micro should not be locked away – he should be snuggled up with his person, chewing on a toy and learning about what it takes to be an amazing companion. Please help Micro find a new family by taking a moment to share his information. Facebook thread here.
