Woman pulls over to find out what’s inside a trash bag walking down the road

Malissa Sergent Lewis works at an elementary school in Kentucky. And one morning, she happened to take an alternate route to work. Little did she know the trip would change her life forever.

Malissa Sergent Lewis decided to take the backroads to work one morning when she spotted the unthinkable.

She was shocked to see a trash bag walking down the road. She pulled out her cellphone to record it and decided to help, no matter what it was inside.

The bag started to walk toward Malissa as the mystery animal sensed someone nearby. Knowing it could be a very dangerous animal, she opened the bag to look inside.

Her heart sank when she saw an adorable puppy. He started wagging his tail immediately as if he knew he was going to be saved. She took to Facebook to say, “If this is your puppy, let me know. If you are the scoundrel who put it in a garbage bag and tossed it on the side of the road… you’re a sicko.”

The puppy had a collar but no identification, so she took him to work. When she got home that night, she took the puppy to the vet for an examination.

The vet said he was no more than eight weeks old but that he was completely healthy!

Malissa decided to keep the puppy and named him Hefty. Needless to say, her sons were pretty thrilled with their new dog! 🙂

Meanwhile, the Sheriff’s department and animal control are involved in an investigation to find out who committed this horrific act. Who could do such a thing?

But the playful and loving puppy is safe, healthy and in his forever home. What a happy ending! 🙂

  1. How can anyone one do such a horrible thing to this baby????? I hope the officers will catch the criminal. Perhaps, the criminal should be put in a bag and dumped in a middle of nowhere without food and drink!

  2. People need to be punished for such acts! Animals have 4 legs, but they are souls and they feel too. There was no need to do that to that puppy. Thank God he was saved and now he lives where he is loved.

  3. Thank you Malissa, you are an angel! He is so beautiful, you are our hero. We all wish there were more people like you in this world!
    And for the person who threw this dog on the highway, karma will come back to you in trifold.

  4. Firstly, why dump the poor thing?! If you’re not willing to look after an animal for life, don’t get one in the first place! Secondly, you have to be all kinds of messed up to put it in a plastic bag and dump it…..the poor thing could have suffocated! Thank god someone came along in time to rescue the gorgeous thing!!
