Trash crew finds tiny puppy abandoned in garbage bag — one man sees him and knows it’s meant to be

Every now and then, animals find their way into our lives unexpectedly, and we believe it’s destiny.

A dog left behind in the garbage was found by a clean-up crew, and one of them went the extra mile to provide him with a wonderful new life.

A crew made up of Missouri Stream Teams, Beyond Housing, and citizens from a Tiered Community found something unexpected in the trash while scouting locations for a clean-up on March 19, as per a Facebook post by the Missouri Department of Conservation.

It was truly heartbreaking to see a small puppy left behind in the garbage, tied up inside a black plastic bag. It’s hard to believe that someone would abandon a dog like this, but luckily, he was found just in time.

Brian Waldrop, the Stream Team Coordinator, was especially moved by the abandoned puppy.

Brian remembered telling FOX 2 St. Louis, “I was on my knees, grabbed it, and instantly fell in love.”

Brian stumbled upon a dog in a garbage heap for the very first time. Despite the unexpected and peculiar encounter, he felt a deep connection and decided to adopt the puppy as his own.

When they arrived home, he mentioned washing the dog, which resulted in the dog’s yellow fur fading away to expose a lovely white coat.

Brian exclaimed, “He has such an amazing personality and he is really gentle.”

Brian informed FOX 2 that he had not yet chosen a name for the dog. Although a few people have proposed names related to garbage, such as “Hefty,” Brian has been referring to the dog as “Dude.”

It’s truly sad that someone would leave a puppy behind like this, but we’re relieved that everything turned out well and he found a wonderful, caring new family! We appreciate Brian for giving this little one a home!
