A Puppy Christmas Miracle: Poodle Found In Recycling Center Saved Moments Before Death

A tiny poodle-mix puppy miraculously survived being tied into a trash bag, thrown into a dumpster with construction materials and hauled many miles along with the debris, before recycling center workers spied movement on the conveyor belt and plucked her from certain death. According to this story featured on Dog Time Media, the puppy (approximately 10 weeks old) had several bite wounds on her neck that probably occurred before she was thrown in the trash.

"Gem" is now resting comfortably in the care of animal control workers and is expected to make a complete recovery. Meanwhile, the two workers who helped save the puppy's life are being hailed as heroes and donations and requests to adopt the lucky dog are pouring in. "It's a miracle dog, " one of the rescuers said. "There's no other words to describe it."

We'd love to hear what you think about this incredible rescue story...and about the nightmarish animal cruelty that likely preceded it. Let us know!

Love ya lots♥

I don't know how anyone could be so heartless. The person responsible should have some very bad karma.
