On June 7, an abandoned puppy was discovered inside of a cardboard box which had been sealed with tape. According to Georgia’s Dalton Police Department, the female puppy was found near the intersection of Needham Drive and Kammi Street by kids who called the authorities for help.

In a press release, the police department provided details about the manner in which the puppy was found, and her current condition:

The puppy was sealed in a box with markings from Doctors Foster And Smith Affordable Quality Pet Care. The puppy is a female white and black dog, most likely a Jack Russell terrier. She appears to be approximately 8 weeks old. Despite being sealed in a box with temperatures in the 80’s, the puppy was healthy and playful once she was freed. The dog was taken by Animal Control and turned over to a local rescue organization. She is safe.

Officers are hoping that someone will recognize the puppy and know who owned her or possibly know who owned the litter from which she came. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to please contact Officer Serena Martin at 706-278-9085, dial 9 and enter extension 240 or email smartin@cityofdalton-ga.gov.

    The box that had a label marked “Doctor Foster and Smith”……..does it exist or made up? These assholes perhaps thought it was funny! Thankful the dog was rescued. Because of people who have abandoned animals left on the side of the road I am now very conscientiousness when driving or walking for a lookout for those that need help! I can recall back in the early 80’s when I found a cat on the side of a busy road. He was very sweet. I scooped him up and brought him to a shelter(at the time I had 5 cats and 2 large dogs). Not knowing about kill shelters at the time. I called too inquire and sadly they told they put him down because of “worms”. Never again did I do that after finding 3 feral kittens.

      It won’t have been the business that has done this. It will be someone who has done business with them, and has used the box for their nefarious deed. It’s just fortunate that the children found the box and pup, and did the right thing. I hope that those children are suitably rewarded for their kindness, and that the person(s) responsible for the cruel act are caught and punished to the full extent of the law.

    Ironic that this sweet puppy was dumped in a box that comes from a website that caters to caring pet parents. Their products are not cheap. I’m assuming they looked for a label on the box. I do really hope they find who did this. Glad the puppy is safe, and seeing how adorable he is, I suspect he’ll be adopted quickly.

    Thanks to the kids who did the right thing and notified authorities about this puppy – they saved a life. Whoever, or rather, WHATEVER hunk of sewer slime did this I truly hope you get it back 100x – there is no reason to ever treat an innocent puppy so damn cruelly – what goes around comes around – it will happen and they so well deserve it. This little dog will get a good safe and loving home –
