While one Texas plumber was on his way to a job one morning last week, a strange figure in a ditch near the road caught his attention as he drove by.
Carlos Carrillo, a plumber from Shoreline Plumbing, had no idea what he had just seen but decided to go back and check it out to be safe. “We didn’t know he was dog at first,” Carrillo said. “We reversed and saw him.” Once they got closer, they realized the figure was actually a dog that had been tied and taped up and left to die in the ditch.
The dog had clearly been mistreated but was incredibly trusting and affectionate with his rescuer. “He seemed OK,” said Carrillo. “He was very loving and liked the attention. He was probably just there for a day or so.” Carrillo and his coworker brought the sweet dog straight to Peewee’s Pet Adoption, a local no-kill shelter, and he was thrilled to finally be safe. “Look at that face. He knows he was saved!”
Once examined, the team discovered the dog had heartworms but was otherwise healthy, and while he’ll need treatment, they’re already looking to find him a forever home. “His tail won’t stop wagging,” a spokesperson at the shelter said. “He’s such a sweetheart.”
