A puppy is lucky to be alive after someone abandoned her – leaving her chained to a rail car in Wisconsin. According to WQAD, the pup was found by two train engineers who were traveling between Galesburg, Illinois and La Crosse, Wisconsin.
According to the news agency, a dispatcher alerted Allen Au and his coworker Michael Ortega to the troubling situation – a report had been made that a puppy was chained to a rail car in Prairie Du Chien. Sure enough, when the duo arrived to the area, they found the abandoned puppy chained to the train.
Fortunately there is a very happily-ever-after for this abandoned puppy. The engineers freed her from the chain and offered her food, water and most importantly – love. The pup was skinny and “very hungry,” but those days are gone. Michael Ortega has decided to give the abandoned pup a forever home with his family in Bettendorf. Today the puppy is known as Lucky, aka Lulu.
Enjoy your new life Lucky!
