Abandoned Pit Bull found inside a dumpster on a plantation – NBC 6 South Florida

An emaciated dog was found abandoned in a dumpster in Plantation on Tuesday, according to Plantation police.

The pup was found abandoned in a crate at the Spectra Apartments complex located at 4540 Northwest 10th Place.

The tiny black pit bull with white markings was found in a crate and taken to Mutty Paws Rescue in West Palm Beach where he is currently being treated. When Mutty Paws first got the pup, he was in bad shape.

“Dr. Kaddish said someone hadn’t fed him for at least a week or two. They immediately put him on an IV. He probably had pancreatitis trying everything he could put his mouth on. “said Ashley Miller of Mutty Paws Rescue.

Mutty Paws Rescue named the pit bull Mooshu and they said he is now on the road to recovery.

The rescue said it will take some time before he is 100 per cent, but once he is released the rescue will seek a foster home for Mooshu.

“This morning he was still struggling to stand up, but he was much better and already this afternoon he’s walking around the vet’s office and giving everyone love,” Miller said.

The only thing left with the pit bull when he was found was a silver bowl with water. Police continue to search for clues to find the owners of the dog.

The neighbors who live in the complex were stunned to hear what happened.

“I just think it’s very inhumane. I believe respect is due to everyone, including animals, so seeing this situation is really disheartening,” a neighbor said.

The public is urged to contact the Plantation Police Department at (954) 797-2100 for any information regarding this incident.
