The sad dog in this plastic tub was discovered on the side of the road in Columbia, Maryland, and the cover was removed before the photograph was shot.
The pit bull puppy was barely ten weeks old when he was abandoned. Jill Eberhart and her son, Thomas, noticed the large container by the side of the road and, happily, opted to investigate what was inside.
I can’t picture their reaction when they saw the starving dog curled up inside.
Jill and Thomas offered the dog some water as they waited for animal control.
Taylor Hawkins, an animal control and animal handler, named the puppy Eddy and is caring for him.
Eddy became stronger by the day—look at him today!
He no longer resembles the miserable creature we saw cowering in that plastic container!
Oh, those saggy ears!
The finest part of Eddy’s story is that he was adopted! The inquiry into what happened to Eddy on the side of the road is ongoing.
The callous person(s) who carried out this obligation must be identified and punished.
Concerned, law-abiding residents with information on the perpetrators are requested to contact Howard County Animal Control at 410.313.2780.
