Beaten Dog Survives Spending Night in Trash Can

A woman went to throw her garbage on Christmas Day and found a matted dog inside the trash bin.The pet was hardly breathing, whining and crying out for help.

On Christmas Eve, Pillo a dog from Córdoba, Spain, was abandoned inside a trash container. His previous and unknown owner wanted nothing more with this dog. The pet was matted, beaten and starved. Whoever had him decided that Christmas Eve was the perfect night to toss the dog in a garbage bin and leave him there to die. Fortunately, the dog was discovered and saved.



A woman went to throw her garbage on Christmas Day inside the same bin where Pillo was left. When she opened the container, she found the matted dog,  hardly breathing, whining and crying out for help.

The woman immediately called animal rescuers (La Guarida) and they came to the dog’s aid.

Veterinarians from Hospital Veterinario Puente Genil stated that Pillo was almost starved to death. The dog also suffered from chronic anemia but fortunately, after five days of intensive care at the animal clinic, the dog started to show signs of improvement.

The pet is eating on his own and with each passing day he gets stronger. He is in a foster home and once he is completely healthy he will be available for adoption. La Guarida is thrilled with the hundreds of people interested in adopting Pillo, they hope the miracle dog will find his loving forever home soon. Rescuers encourage those willing to adopt, to consider saving the lives of the other 200 dogs they have in their shelter.

  13. God bless this lady that found this baby. So glad he is doing better. God bless him also and find it the perfect loving home.

  14. I am so sick of all the evil people…I think they should be shot on the spot — I’m talking the sub-human scums, not the blessed animals!

  15. Wtf, they need to beat and starve the asshole who did this and then dump him in a deep hole and leave him there! I’m glad this angel is ok now.

  16. That is diabolical. What evil swine could do that to a dog? What gets me is he was probably dumped so they could have a puppy! Then when this next one is too big the same will happen. I hope this person gets caught somehow or other but the main thing is the poor dog and I hope he is ok now.

  17. OMG there are just some bastards out there that deserve some of their own treatment, nothing less than what they have inflicted on poor animals.
