A nine-month-old puppy was discovered by a Broward County Sheriff’s deputy on Tuesday in a dumpster where the frightened pooch was left to die.
Charles Young, a deputy with the county’s K-9 unit, had been driving near Hillsborough Boulevard in Deerfield Beach when he received a tip about the German shepherd and beagle mix inside of a dumpster. When Officer Young pulled up, he saw the soaking wet puppy huddled in the corner lying on top of a pile of garbage.
“Somebody with no feelings, somebody I would not call a human being,” the officer told CbsNews describing whoever abandoned the pup. “He’s just a happy sweet dog, all he wanted to do was play. He’d jump on me and give kisses and just be a happy dog.”
The only lead authorities have is the color of the driver’s car as black or dark blue.
The puppy is now in the care of the Tri-County Animal Rescue in Boca Raton. He is being treated for hookworms and needs to gain weight, but is expected to be available for adoption in a few days. The adorable pooch has been named Oscar. If interested in adopting this boy, please call 561.482.8110.
Many thanks to Officer Young who admits to having nine dogs of his own including his K-9 partner Brady.
