When one dog was found by a passerby, abandoned and shivering cold, he had not only been dumped but his mouth had been taped shut with electrical tape, giving him no chance of survival.
But the universe had other plans for this little pup.
Bob Hoelter, of Griffith, Indiana, was taking a night time walk to the store when he heard a strange noise.
He realized it was a whimper and looked around to see where it was coming from.
“I was looking at the water and the land, but I don’t see anything, but I hear it,” Bob told The Dodo. “I walked back to land and I walked around and looked around.”
As he shone his flashlight under a bridge where he thought the noise was coming from, he was met with an upsetting sight.
He spotted a tiny, scared puppy with its mouth sealed with back electrical tape.
