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.
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.
