Blind puppy put in trash bag and thrown into creek

Someone put blind puppy into trash bag and threw her into freezing creek

Someone placed a blind and possibly deaf puppy into a trash bag and threw her into a freezing creek in Kentucky. Against all odds, the abandoned pup was spotted by two good Samaritans who made sure that she didn’t die in the icy water.

What is known

On Tuesday, the Scott County Animal Shelter recounted what is known about the cruel situation which could have claimed this adorable puppy’s life:

Today, this wet, freezing little puppy was dropped off by 2 caring men. She appears to be an Australian Shep or a Border Collie. Someone had put her in a trash bag, then they put that bag inside another bag with 3 large rocks and dumped it in the creek in Sadieville on 32 and Boyers Chapel Rd.

The men spotted the puppy after she managed to wiggle her head out of the bags. The shelter wrote:

When the men spotted her, one waded into the freezing water and rescued her. The creek is partially frozen over and the bag was wedged under some ice, so it had most likely been tossed over. We rushed her to the vet and we are praying she makes it!

Update on the abandoned puppy’s condition

A few hours after the puppy was taken in, the shelter updated Facebook followers with her latest condition:

The puppy just got back to the shelter, and after getting her belly full, she’s taking a nap. We think she’s going to make a full recovery, her prognosis is good!😊 She has a congenital defect of her eyes. We will keep her under watch for several days to be sure. Currently, we do not need a foster home, or a rescue and the puppy is not available for adoption. Watch for updates on our FB.

Information needed

The shelter staff is hopeful that someone will have information about whoever is responsible for this act of cruelty. Anyone with a tip is asked to call 502-863-7897.

    My Grandfather and his 5 siblings with their parents moved from Kentucky to Northern Colorado in 1902 and my grandpa often told me he Never had any desire to go back to Greenup Ky. because of the harshness of the area… he died at 86 and was buried in Colorado. After seeing so Many, Many stories of the cruelness, torture, maiming, butchering, of animals, of every breed, It appears not much has changed in the last 125 years… throw in the Meth, Cocaine, and moonshine, and the circle is complete… Sad to Say !!!! Even if they ever find out Who did this Nothing will be done

    God help me for saying this but I have no use for people that do things like this. I have had a blind dog and I’ve got one who’s partially blind now. I’ve also got a rescued deaf and brain damaged little girl (due to abuse). I wouldn’t trade them for anything in the world. As a matter of fact I’d take care of them before most humans I know. They can take the fucking people that do things like this and throw them in a wood chipper or trash compactor for all I care.

    I agree with Gizmos Mom and everything she said about what should be done to these vile monsters who did this. They don’t deserve to live another day for what they’ve done

    Obviously whoever did this has NO regard for an innocent life. There is a special place in Hell for this POS and a special place in Heaven for the men who rescued the pup. If they ever do find who did this, I hope they will suffer some sort of punishment and not the proverbial slap on the wrist!

    Glad that this precious little treasure was saved. Hope she can be rehomed into a wonderful furever home where she will be treated as a beloved family member.
