When 12-year-old Malory Steiner, of Royalton, New York, saw a garbage bag thrown out a car window she didn’t know what to think, but when she saw the bag move, she knew something was wrong. Thanks to this attentive and responsible young woman, Teddy the senior Pug was saved and is getting medical help.

Steiner told WKBW “the bag started walking down the road’ and started to rip around the dog’s neck. As soon as she realized there was a pet in the bag, the girl called her family and with their help, the discarded sick and injured dog was rescued off the streets.

Teddy was taken to a local rescue where he was examined. Now thanks to Buffalo Pug & Small Breed Rescue, Inc., the senior dog cruelly abandoned by his previous owners is getting the help he needs.

The aging dog has a broken tail and suffers from eye, ear and skin infections. When found he was underweight and rescuers feared he also suffered from organ failure due to his old age and advanced state of neglect. The pet is currently in foster care and thanks to the new loving environment and proper care, Teddy is recovering and has gained weight. Veterinarians continue to run labs to determine any other health issue the dog might have.

Buffalo Pug & Small Breed Rescue hopes to find Teddy a home where he can spend the rest of his golden years surrounded by love.

Authorities are investigating and hope to find the person(s) who tossed Teddy from the car.

To learn more about him you can contact rescuers on their website, or Facebook page.

  1. You have got to be the most repulsive and worthless sh!t on earth to do something this cruel. These despicable people will get what’s coming to them, sooner or later. Poor little thing. I hope he recovers soon.

      • At least a rape victim can do something about it. At least murderers are usually driven by rage or mental illness. This, on the other hand, is uncomprehensible on any level. Pets are defenseless, especially the ones that are old and sick. And as to the kind of human being that it takes to do either one of these things, there is no difference.

      • Killers and other criminals like rapists or child abusers often start with dogs or cats and then “graduate” to humans. It’s all the same sin of hate, jealousy, destruction, and vengeance in the criminals’ minds.

      • You must be ‘bored’. There are a lot of horrors, just because you despise one type of atrocity does not mean you discount others. I rate a lot of horrors done in the name of relgion and patriotism in the same boat. But humans create their own shame and pain.

    • Ceci, I couldn’t agree more. In fact, nothing else needs to be said in addition to your comment except perhaps replies in agreement and admiration for the good deeds done in rescuing this poor dog.

  2. It breaks my heart every time I read about pets being treated like garbage, whether or not an actual trash bag is involved. Please, people, if you don’t know how to care for your pet or can no longer afford to, there HAVE to be better options than this! In fact, there are plently. Pets are NOT garbage, even if they are old or sick. And if they look ugly, it is not their fault. It is YOUR fault, because you wouldn’t care for them properly. You, the one who has done this, are the real garbage here. And one day, when YOU are old and sick, I hope that you’re abandoned by your family, dumped on the street like the garbage that you are. I hope that you feel exactly like this poor dog felt when you dumped him. You DESERVE it. He didn’t.

  3. There should be a special place in hell reserved for people who can do this to their dog… or any animal. In a million years, no one will ever be able to explain or rationalize behaviour like this to me.
