A few months back, a ten-week-old Pit Bull puppy was found locked up in a plastic container and left for dead on the side of a road in Columbia, Maryland. He was emaciated, missing fur, sitting in his own filth, and covered in wounds.
Jill Eberhart and her son, Thomas, saw the bin on the side of the road and checked to see what it was. As soon as they realized it was a puppy, they immediately gave him some water and called animal control for help.
Now named Eddy, this little pup has been under the care of animal control and animal handler Taylor Hawkins, who took him home every night and made sure he got the proper medication.
If he hadn’t been found when he was, his ending would’ve gone the other way. Without food, water, and with only a little room to breathe, this pup definitely wouldn’t have survived much longer. Thankfully, his fate took a turn for the better and he was rescued just in time.
As the days went on, Eddy got stronger and healthier. He is also much happier! Oftentimes, he’d wake Hawkins up in the middle of the night, wanting to play. He’s like a whole new puppy now, with a new lease on life!
And the best news of all? Eddy has since been adopted into a loving family! He’s had a rough life thus far, but now he has much better years to come. He’ll always be loved and well-cared for, and he won’t ever have to worry about being neglected, hurt, or abandoned ever again. He’s come a long way since he was found in that bin, and his transformation is absolutely incredible. He looks like a whole new puppy!
