Someone abandoned a puppy in a backpack

Someone left a puppy in backpack in the back of a random truck

Someone left a pit bull puppy, stuffed inside of a backpack, in the back of a random truck in Tampa, Florida. Perhaps the person responsible hoped that the pup would find a good home, or maybe they just no longer wanted to be bothered with caring for a pet.

Fortunately, the puppy was discovered by a kind man. According to Thursday’s WFLA News, Jerry Murray, a U.S. Air Force veteran, is the owner of the truck where the pup, dubbed “Zeus,” was found. He told the news agency, “I’m standing here like this and I hear a noise and I look in the back and we meet eyes.”

Zeus was in good hands – Murray was not in the position to keep the abandoned puppy himself (already the owner of several of his own dogs) but his wife found the Second Chance Friends Rescue Group, which was able to take Zeus in.

The rescue group introduced Facebook followers to their new charge on Wednesday:

You guys saw the puppy in a backpack dumped in somebody’s pick up truck??? Well, this kid will never see the inside of a backpack or the bed of a truck again.

Please welcome Zeus to Second Chance!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to the kind people who found him and cared for him and allowed us to rescue him. The world needs more people like you.

Zeus is justifiably uncertain about things thanks to his traumatizing experience, but he is in a foster home and learning that it’s okay to trust. As soon as he gains some much needed confidence, he will be made available for adoption.

    Thank you to the kind people who cared enough to save Zeus – there are not enough of them and way too many cruel abusive maggots posing as human beings. Florida is way up there on the list of a state that is loaded with animal abusers. But Zeus is a lucky one who encountered caring people.
