One of the shitty things about living in a rural area is that people like to come out here and dump things. Furniture, trash, you name it. If someone in an urban area is too lazy to pay to have their rubbish removed, they come out to where I live and dump it out in someone’s field or in the ditch off the side of a road.

Too often to count, what people dump out here are dogs.

This poor girl was dump out in our area and was trying to stay warm in about 5-10 degree F weather in the field behind ours. My mom and I took some dog food out there to try and coax her into the pick up, but she was so terrified that she’d bark anytime I’d move. I did get her to eat the food, but my mom wouldn’t let me get too close to her because she thought I’d get bit. Which I knew wouldn’t happen because if you’ve had dogs as long as I have you can tell between an aggressive bark and a scared bark. She started aggressive, with her hackles up, but once she started eating it just turned into a scared bark. Eventually, we got a guy driving by to stop and help us. When he got out of his pick up, his dog bailed out the window, and that broke the ice. He picked her up and put her into our pick up (mentioned that she felt like she might be pregnant) and we went to find a nearby shelter that was open. Luckily, after about 2 hours, I was able to track a shelter down that was not only open but was willing to take her despite her being dumped out of their county. Thank you so much to the ladies at the Adams County Animal Shelter for taking her in and answering their phones.

She was so terrified every time we had to stop, like she thought we were going to throw her out the door. She was just the sweetest dog and I wish we could have kept her. I hope someone takes her in and cares for her.

And I hope whoever dumped her out on the side of a road in below freezing temps gets the same treatment in Hell. People are terrible.
