A tiny Chihuahua puppy with broken front legs was found abandoned in a dumpster in a Santa Rosa Junior College parking lot last Tuesday. An employee at the college spotted the pup and took it to a nearby animal hospital, where it was treated for its injuries in style: with two magenta-colored casts.

According to a release from the Santa Rosa Junior College Police Department, the person responsible for the puppy’s injuries — and disposing it in the dumpster — is still unknown.

The Chihuahua, who didn’t have an ID microchip or any tags identifying it, is now in custody of Sonoma County Animal Services.

“We all must work together in keeping our pets and our community safe,” the police statement read.

We hope the Chihuahua heals and finds a loving forever home soon.
