It was supposed to be just an ordinary commute to work for plumber Carlos Carillo and his colleague when they saw something unexpected in a ditch off the country road. While heading out to a job in Robstown, Texas, the two Shoreline Plumbing employees noticed an unusual figure in a ditch off the country road they were on. They weren’t sure what it was they had just seen, but fortunately, they decided to stop to have a closer look.
They quickly discovered the dog was in desperate need of help; he’d been .ᴛ.ɪᴇᴅ up with ᴛᴜʙɪɴɢ, and his mouth was .ᴅ.ᴜᴄᴛ-ᴛᴀᴘᴇᴅ shut.
“We didn’t know he was a dog at first,” Carrillo, an employee of Shoreline Plumbing in Texas, told. “We reversed and saw him.” The doggie’s mouth was taped shut and he’d been .ᴛ.ɪᴇᴅ up with tubing. He was clearly left there to .ᴅ.ɪᴇ
Carillo and his friend rushed to cut the pooch free. “He seemed OK,” said Carrillo. “He was very loving and liked the attention. He was probably just there for a day or so.”
Afterward, the two plumbers loaded the dog into their vehicle and headed to Peewee’s Pet Adoption, a nearby no-kill shelter. Despite all he’d been through, the dog was full of gratitude for the people who had stopped to help him.
“Look at that face,” said Carrillo. “He knows he was saved!”
The person who so heartlessly left the dog to die wasn’t found, but at least thanks to the plumbers, the dog got a second chance at life. The dog couldn’t be happier to be alive and is on the look for a loving forever home now
