When taking a bag of trash to a nearby receptacle, we typically just throw the bag into the garbage can or dumpster without really thinking about it. It’s just a daily activity that typically is not very memorable. But recently a Good Samaritan was doing just that: taking a bag of trash to the dumpster. But they looked inside the dumpster before throwing their bag inside and it was so great they did. When they glanced in they saw the most awful thing. Someone had thrown a very tiny and injured puppy into the dumpster, located in the state of Kansas.
The little puppy was terrified and huddled in the middle of some trash and was quite confused by his predicament. He is so lucky someone found him just in the nick of time. The individual who found the puppy took him out of the dumpster and brought him to someone who could help the little pup. The dog went to Unleashed Pet Rescue and Adoption and they staff there could not believe what had happened. They posted the little puppy’s story on Facebook and said:
“There is NO EXCUSE to treat an animal this way and it absolutely disgusts us to think someone could do this. We as humans can do better.”
The staff there named the puppy Minimus and figured he was around two months old. He wasn’t in the best condition, but they were confident he would make a full recovery from his ordeal. His body was covered in open puncture wounds and they weren’t sure what happened to him. He went to the vet where he was treated for his wounds and he is expected to make a full recovery. Despite all he went through, he was so happy to be with his rescuers, snuggling up to them and falling asleep. He is now living with a foster family while he recovers and will be ready for adoption soon!
