WORKER SAVES DOG FROM DUMPSTER AT THE LAST MINUTE – A Chihuahua…

WORKER SAVES DOG FROM DUMPSTER AT THE LAST MINUTE – A Chihuahua was abandoned in a dumpster and was noticed at the last moment by a sanitation worker. 

A Chihuahua, nicknamed Hopper, who had apparently been thrown away in a dumpster was noticed by a sanitation worker just before he would have been crushed by a trash compactor. Steve Shelafoe was driving the garbage truck and noticed something laying on top of the garbage. It started moving and it turned out to be a Chihuahua! Hopper was rescued and is now being cared for by Valley of the Sun Dog Rescue in Arizona. Read more from Fox 10 News:

“At first I thought he was just a stuffed animal, because he wasn’t really moving, and then as I stopped it then he jumped up on top and started walking around,” said Steve Shelafoe. With no tags or identification, Steve says he nicknamed the dog Hopper, after the part of the truck he was found in. But this pup is really lucky. “If he didn’t get on top of the trash like he did, he would have been sucked underneath, and that wouldn’t have been no good for him,” said Shelafoe.

Hopper has been through some tough times but now he has a chance to live out his life in a great home. Click here for the full story and  here for more about Valley of the Sun Dog Rescue (photos from their Facebook page).
