Jan 2, 2019

When a woman in Kentucky was running late for work, she decided to take a shortcut through a back road, but saw a bag on the side of the road … moving. She knew she had to open it up, and was shocked upon seeing what was inside.

In August 2016, Malissa Sergent Lewis was a little late for work and took a shortcut through a quiet back road, where she found a trash bag. Speaking to The Dodo, she said, “I saw this trash bag in the road, and I thought to myself, ‘Did I just see that bag move?’ The closer I got, I realized it was moving. I could hardly wrap my mind around that. Something was alive in that bag, and I just knew I had to get whatever it was out.”

Lewis took a video of the moving bag as she drove closer.

“The bag was tied off in a knot, so I carefully tore a corner and looked inside,” she recalled. “It was a puppy. And he sure was glad to see me. As soon as I opened it up, and he saw light, he just started wagging his tail. He knew he was OK. I couldn’t believe it.”

Though the puppy had a collar, Lewis couldn’t identify it as there was no tag, so she took him with her to an elementary school where she works.

“I just put him in my lap and drove to school. I couldn’t just leave him in the car, so I brought him in with me. The principal saw me and said, ‘You have a dog!’ I said, ‘It’s a long story,’” she said.

Her son took the dog home after she called him to pick the puppy up, and the mother and son later brought the dog, which was named Hefty by the family, to a vet for a checkup.

“We got him his shots. He seems happy and healthy,” she said.

To find a puppy in a bag, Lewis said, “Who could do something like that to any animal? I don’t care who you are; everybody loves puppies. It’s a real coldhearted person to put an animal, any animal, in a garbage bag and dump it on the side of the road. They had bad, bad intentions doing that.”

The family is also happy to adopt the puppy. Lewis said, “We all love the puppy. He’s going to be loved, and have a good home with us. I’m just glad I was in the right place at the right time to save him. That’s what it was.”
