A tiny Yorkie was found on Thursday morning in the 1800 block of North Taylor Street in North Philadelphia. She had been left for dead when discovered by a Good Samaritan who heard a faint whimpering while walking by.

The dog, named Pringles has suffered severe head trauma and is being treated and cared for by the Pennsylvania SPCA.

“While our medical team works to help her recover, our officers have identified Pringles’ owners, and are following leads to uncover the circumstances leading to Pringles’ injuries and just how she ended up in the trashcan,” the organization posted on their Facebook page.

Pringles remains in critical condition. The Director of Public Relations for the Pennsylvania SPCA, Gillian Kocher stated there was no excuse for leaving the ailing pooch in a trashcan.

“No matter how she sustained the injury that she had, instead of seeking treatment or help, she was placed in a trash can like a piece of trash.”

Anyone with information about Pringles is asked to contact the Pennsylvania SPCA’s Cruelty Hotline at 866.601.SPCA. Be the voice for Pringles and help her find justice. She deserves better.

    If I lived in the area, I would foster her in a heartbeat……. That poor, precious treasure…… my instinct is to want to snuggle her and reassure her that the world is “OK”……
