It was a heartbreaking scene. Someone saw a family dog being abandoned behind a Goodwill store in Atlanta, Georgia. The dog was thrown into a dumpster with his dog bed and left behind. Even worse, the eyewitness is said to have seen two children crying in the car, watching as their pet was discarded!
The 3-year-old Pit Bull, dubbed Broham, when he was first found, was rescued from inside the dumpster by Fulton County Animal Services, who took him to the shelter.
“Someone spotted the person who dumped him, and there were two kids crying in the car! Heartbreaking,” Shelter Angels Pit Bull Rescue posted on Facebook. “[Broham] has lived with kids before and at the shelter he tries to play with the other dogs through the fence.”
Two Tailz Rescue pulled Broham from the shelter and renamed him Emmett.
“On his Freedom Ride, Emmett was very uncertain and unsure at first…..BUT THEN…it’s like he knew he was SAFE!!!” Two Tailz described Emmett’s reaction.
“Look at that indelible, contagious smile on his face!”
The resilient dog was taken to their rescue and Two Tailz detailed what will happen next.
“He is evidence in the case that the authorities are pursuing to find the people who dumped him in the dumpster with his dog bed behind a shopping center in Atlanta, GA. They are actively and aggressively pursing some leads in this case,” Two Tailz explained on Facebook. “Until the investigation is complete, we cannot get him neutered or microchipped…we cannot do anything that permanently alters him.”
In the meantime, Emmett was fully vetted and his health appears OK except for a hurt front paw. “From first assessment, the vet believes this is an old injury that never received medical attention, tried to heal, and ultimately, atrophied,” they said.
The rescue found a temporary foster family for Emmett, and then began looking for a forever home.
