Trash crew finds puppy left in a trash bag--one man knew it was meant to be

Recently, members of a clean-up crew discovered a dog abandoned in the trash… and one of them went above-and-beyond to give him a great new life.

According to a Facebook post from the Missouri Department of Conservation, a crew from a Tiered Community were scouting locations for a clean-up on March 19, when they came across something unexpected in the trash.

One crew member was particularly struck by the abandoned pup--Coordinator Brian Waldrop.

“I was just down on my knees, picked it up, and fell instantly in love,” Brian said.

It was the first time he had come across a dog in a trash pile. While their meeting was unexpected and unusual, Brian knew it was meant to be and agreed to take the puppy home himself for good! He gave the dog a wash when they got home: the dog’s initial yellow coloring faded away to reveal a beautiful white coat.

While some have suggested garbage-themed names like “Hefty,” he has been calling him “Dude.”

It was heartbreaking that anyone would leave a dog for dead like this, but a miracle he was discovered in time.
