This is a story of a good Samaritan that was truly at the right place at the right time.
In Kentucky, Malissa Sergent Lewis was happened to take a shortcut on her way to work. She began to drive toward a black trash bag in the middle of the road, and as she neared it, she was astonished to realize that it was moving!
“I saw this trash bag in the road, and I thought to myself, ‘Did I just see that bag move?’ The closer I got, I realized it was moving,” she explained in a story by the Dodo. “I could hardly wrap my mind around that. Something was alive in that bag, and I just knew I had to get whatever it was out.”
Not only that, but the pooch had a collar on, making it seem that he’d had an owner at some point. This pup had intentionally been bagged and d.u.m.p.e.d.
Lewis took the pup home, and posted a picture of him on social media, in case anyone claimed him–perhaps the pup had been stolen.
Unsurprisingly, no one responded. So, this little guy was named Hefty and became a happy, healthy member of the Lewis family!
We’re so glad to hear this kind woman decided to stop and investigate this trash bag. It was meant to be, because Hefty is now in his forever home!
