This little pup owes everything to Poppy.
The days old puppy now named Autumn was laying in a “rubbish pile” in a “derelict” part of Dublin when a smart little dog named Poppy, who was on a walk with her owner, “refused to return when called,” a Facebook post by the Dublin SPCA said on Wednesday.
“Poppy’s owner had to walk over to see what Poppy was sniffing when she discovered little Autumn just lying there in the rubbish,” said the post, which was shared over 200 times.
The adorable pup, who can be seen snoozing peacefully in the accompanying Facebook photo, was clearly left for dead and the SPCA has deemed her survival something special.
“We have no idea why this little pup was abandoned in the way she was but we know it is a miracle she is alive as the place she was left is an empty almost derelict site well away from the public where rubbish is dumped in a corner,” the message said.
Autumn never has to worry about being discarded again. She’ll go to an experienced foster home and “hopefully will grow up to be a happy healthy dog all thanks to Poppy and her vigilant owner,” the SPCA said.
