A dog, discarded like unwanted trash, is lucky to be alive in Jefferson County, Missouri. As reported by Fox 2 News, someone abandoned the dog, who was bound in duct tape, during freezing temperatures.
On Thursday, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office reached out to the public for help:
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Do you recognize this dog? He was dumped in a ditch last weekend near Old Highway M and Schneider Road. He was cold, starving and may have had a concussion.
A deputy found him while on patrol and took the dog to an animal hospital. “Jimmy,” as he’s become known, is doing much better now.

Fortunately, Jimmy is doing much better after being rescued from the cold ditch. The sheriff’s office wrote:
“Jimmy” is doing much better. This is a look at him at the animal hospital where he’s being treated.
We want to get him back to his owners. Right now he is NOT available for adoption.
