Woman Taken Aback After Finding The Tiniest Pup Crying Inside Freezing Trash Can

An employee was starting her day at the Georgia Welcome Center early one morning when she saw a garbage bag lying next to a trash can. She bent down to put the bag into the bin but something stopped her. She heard a tiny pained cry. Upon looking inside the can, she found a Chihuahua weighing not more than 6 pounds looking up at her.

The staffer then quickly lifted the pup out of the can and took her inside. She wasn’t sure what she was going to do with the dog, but she didn’t have time because her supervisor would be arriving any minute. So, she called a coworker who had previously volunteered with Hart County Animal Rescue for suggestions.

The dog was named Carolina and brought to the vet who kept her for overnight observation. “She was wet, cold, hungry and scared to death,” Judy Partain, director of Hart County Animal Rescue, said.
The area had just had a week of freezing rain, it could only be a miracle for the dog to survive. But she did.

She was not microchipped and because there were no video cameras in the area, her owners could not be tracked down. Neither could the rescuers know why she was abandoned in the trash can like that.
“She could have been barking in the car and get on someone’s nerves. We’ll never know,” Partain said. “All we know is that she’ll never have to go through that again.”
“This is one of those situations where you’re just like, ‘How in the world did this happen,’” Partain added. “‘Why did somebody put this precious dog out?’”

The rescue picked Carolina up the next morning and took her to Partain’s home to recuperate. She is doing great there. Everyone was surprised by how much puppy energy Carolina had. She wouldn’t tire from running and playing with Partain’s other three foster dogs. She also enjoys snuggling up with her rescuers and taking naps under bed covers.
“The little dog is just amazing,” Partain said. “She is sweet and smart and last night she found the toys, and went and got I don’t know how many and buried them in my bedroom.”

Now, Carolina is the leader of the rescue dog pack at Partain’s house.
“I had one other little one who didn’t like her, but she’s bound and determined to be friends with that dog,” Partain explained. “It’s like she’s been here forever. From the minute we got her, it was like she had just been with me forever. She’s just amazing.”
Carolina’s story reached hundreds of people and has touched the hearts of everyone. A lot of queries have been coming in with regards to giving her a loving home. She has more than eighty pending applications. Partain has received more than 300 texts and calls.
“It’s unreal,” Partain said. “People from Maine, Texas, everywhere are willing to drive here to get this poor dog.”

Carolina has now been spayed and will be ready to go to her forever home. The rescue wishes that she finds the most loving family. They also encourage more people to open their doors and hearts for stray dogs.
“It breaks your heart,” Partain said. “We’re excited for all the attention she’s getting, but it’s so sad when we have 40 others sitting here with stories as bad or worse than hers. But that’s what we love. We love to take the ones that nobody else wants.”
