Someone deserves a hefty tip!
A pizza delivery man in Orlando, Florida, went beyond the call of duty this weekend when he helped an injured puppy he saw while delivering a pie.
WKMG News 6 reports that Central Florida authorities were notified on Sunday about the injured pooch, who apparently resided at the home where the man made a delivery.
When Animal Services responded to the call, the owner surrendered the puppy to them. The owner claimed that his dog had sustained the wound on her left front leg from another dog in the neighborhood. An investigation is pending, the report said.
Now renamed Pupperoni, it’s still unclear whether the dog’s infected leg will need to be amputated, since it was left untreated for far too long.
“Despite her injuries, Pupperoni is still a friendly, outgoing pup seeking companionship and attention,” said Dil Luther, division manager of Orange County Animal Services. “We cannot stress enough the importance of reporting animal abuse and neglect as these victims cannot speak for themselves.”
Local news stories about the dog delivered good news on Tuesday: Orange County Animal Services announced on Facebook that the dog was leaving the shelter and headed for Passion 4 Pits Rescue in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The group is currently collecting funds to pay for Pupperoni’s medical care, to donate, click here.
