A tiny puppy, not even weighing in at two pounds, died shortly after being found discarded in the trash. Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue, in Nashville, Tennessee, posted photos of the ailing pup on March 12, explaining how he was found:

AND HERE WE GO AGAIN… more inexcusable abuse. Look at this picture closely. Tossed away like the surrounding garbage is a tiny puppy, one pound nine ounces. A Good Samaritan spotted him, rushed him to MACC and MACC called us.

The puppy was rushed to a veterinarian and found to have a low body temperature and showed signs of pneumonia. Despite veterinary intervention, the pup could not be saved.

The rescue group provided a heartbreaking update to Facebook followers, writing:

This tiny angel, whom we did our best to save, got his wings this afternoon. After his initial exam, fluids, meds and getting his body temp up to normal, seizures began and neurological issues became worse. His tiny body was suffering, and we had to let him go. I am thankful Savannah, our foster coordinator was with him and held him as he took his last breath. His short little life is a tragedy in itself, but the heartless way he was tossed in a dumpster to die a slow death is absolutely unforgivable. We don’t know how long he was there before being discovered, but how frightened he must have been. His little body( under his fluffy coat) was skeletal. I just have no words except, we tried. We fell in love just the few hours he was in our care. He is being cremated and his tiny box of ashes will come to our farm. He deserves that respect.
Baby, I am so very sorry.
Rest In Peace..

    Thank you very much for trying so hard for this precious little treasure. Whilst I am very sad he passed away, I am very grateful that he knew love in his final hours. He didn’t die alone, afraid, in pain and unloved…….

    Precious little treasure, I know that you are absolutely in Heaven. Please look for MacKitty and join his wonderful snuggle buddies group and RIP amongst loving friends.

    Whoever abandoned this precious little treasure in a dumpster has earned themselves a reserved spot in the hottest part of Hell to burn forever for their cruelty.
