Puppy found in breeder’s trash can, left to die due to medical defects — now he’s getting a second chance

A puppy abandoned by a breeder in the trash was saved from certain death until, by some miracle, he was located and given another shot.

A broker noticed a “sickly, lethargic” French bulldog puppy that was fighting for its life last month while visiting a breeder to purchase puppies, according to a post from Mac’s Mission, a nonprofit canine rescue organization with headquarters in Jackson, Missouri.

The dog had an umbilical hernia and a heart murmur. It is believed the breeder intentionally threw this puppy away due to these health problems, discarding their “faulty product” and leaving the puppy to die.

Realizing the puppy was near-death, the broker picked him up from the trash and got him help at a nearby rescue, and later reported the breeder. He was then transferred to Mac’s Mission, who brought him to their vet.

They reported that the dog, now named Oscar, had a severe upper respiratory infection, low blood sugar and a high white blood cell count, and was extremely malnourished. They put him on antibiotics, and hoped he would pull through.

“How does one drop a failing sick puppy into a trashcan? How? Just how? I have no words after today on humanity’s audacity and cruelty,” the rescue wrote.

Now in good hands, Oscar’s personality began to shine through. But his recovery hit a roadblock when his health worsened: rescue founder Rochelle Steffen told Newsweek that his heart murmur went from grade 2 to grade 4/5 out of 6.

But they haven’t lost faith, and have been counting on their supporters to help them with the rising medical bills. “Our sole focus of the rescue is taking on extreme medical cases and special needs,” Steffen said.

“To think about him sitting in a trashcan wasting away alone and terrified makes my blood boil and makes me want to fight even harder to save the lost causes like sweet little Oscarr. Our team is all in on Oscar and whatever he needs to feel loved and to be happy.”

In recent updates, Mac’s Mission said that he would be going to an overnight foster, and that he would be seeing a cardiologist to figure out a course of action for his heart defect.

It’s truly heartbreaking that poor Oscar was thrown in the trash and left for dead, but we’re glad he’s in good hands and hope he continues to overcome his medical issues.
