Abandoned in a huge plastic garbage bin laid across the streets of Tampa Bay, Florida, a Yorkshire Terrier and her pups were left out in the freezing cold by their former owner. Passerbys called Animal Control to step in and bring both the mother and her litter to warmth and safety once they spotted her. She had protected her newly-born pups from the cold by using her body as a weather shield.
The Animal Control Department found the remaining 3 puppies in a nearby wooden shed not far from the garbage bin itself. Tampa police are still investigating the culprit behind this incident.
