While out doing police work one day, a group of officers heard whimpers and cries coming from a hole among the grass and sticks.
When they went to investigate, they discovered a shocking sight: a newborn puppy buried six inches underground, covered by a mound of dirt. This poor baby was just 7-days-old, and so young and tiny that he couldn’t even open his eyes yet.
Police in Williston, Florida immediately unburied the pup and rushed him to the Levy Animal Center to recover. Vets said he would have died within hours if he wasn’t rescued.
The newborn was given the name Tucker and began bottle-feeding to great success.
There, he also found his new home — a veterinarian technician at Levy adopted Tucker soon after his arrival!
I can’t imagine who could ever do this to Tucker, but I’m so happy this precious angel got his second chance, and never gave up.
