Adams County, Ohio – Last week, a family taking out their trash discovered a dog who was thrown away in a dumpster. As reported by WKRC News, the Chihuahua was in a trash bag and the good Samaritans who found him say that they could see him breathing inside of the plastic bag.
Ashley Nesbitt tells the news agency:
“That was probably one of the harder parts, not only seeing the dog in distress, but seeing that they placed this poor animal inside of a bag with other trash, like he was nothing.”
The discarded dog, Ollie, belongs to Nick Stewart, who claims that he tripped over his pet while moving and thought that the dog died. Stewart said:
“I understand I didn’t handle it the correct way. Like I said, I used poor judgment. Just in the moment, I wasn’t thinking clearly.”
