From Trash to Treasure: The Miraculous Rescue of a Puppy Abandoned in a Garbage Bag

Thor the Chihuahua is everything you’d expect from an 8-week-old puppy: he’s curious, loves to eat, and especially enjoys cuddle time and playing with his new foster sister.

But just last week, his life was completely different.

Last Tuesday night, animal control officers in Dickinson, Texas, responded to a call about a garbage bag lying on the side of the road — and it looked like something was moving inside.

When they opened it up, tiny, 3-pound Thor looked up at them. He was completely covered in fleas and blood. His right eye was dislocated from its socket and he was shivering from the cold. Even though he was wearing a collar and seemed to have had an owner at one point, it was obvious someone had dumped him there.

“We had no idea if he would survive the surgery to remove his eye,” Kristin Smith, a vet tech from the clinic, told The Dodo. “Luckily, he pulled through and everything went better than expected.”

“The shelter has already been stretched thin with so many pet surrenders this holiday season, so I knew it would be better for him to recover in a home,” Smith said.

It didn’t take long before she noticed just how desperate for love the little dog was. At any given moment, Thor is on his foster mom’s trail — waiting for her to sit down so he can cuddle up with her.

Despite his rocky start in life, Thor is recovering well from his surgery and under treatment for multiple parasites. Since he is so young, he’s adapting to life with one eye quickly and it doesn’t seem to faze him, Smith said. The stitches across his eyelid will be removed within the next few weeks and he’ll continue receiving his puppy vaccines as he gets older.

“Thor is sleeping soundly tonight with not a care in the world,” Smith said. “He really is the perfect little puppy.”
