Two days before Christmas, a tiny puppy was saved thanks to a good Samaritan and her service dog, who happened to hear a faint, albeit life-saving, whimper. The Humane Society of Louisiana has taken in the abandoned puppy, who had been left to fend for himself in a box dropped in an alleyway.

The story of his abandonment, and rescue, was recounted to the Humane Society of Louisiana’s Facebook followers:

We’re calling the rescue of Baby Yoda our Christmas miracle! On December 23rd, a pet owner was out for a stroll with their service dog in the small town of Bogalusa, in Washington Parish, when they heard a slight whimper. The service dog followed the sound to a cardboard box that contained a tiny dog, curled up and struggling to survive.

The pup, dubbed Yoda, was taken to the Bogalulsa Animal Control where it was discovered that he was suffering from a parasite infestation, malnourished, dehydrated, and infected from ant bites on his belly, in addition to being partially deaf.

Despite his laundry list of maladies, his rescuers are choosing to focus on the positive. The animal welfare agency that has taken him under its wing writes:

Baby Yoda would likely have died in a cardboard box in an alleyway. Instead, against all odds, he was rescued and will get all the love and care he needs this holiday season!

If you would like to make a donation towards Yoda’s care, you can do so at the Humane Society of Louisiana Facebook page, or on their website.
