Garbage Man Finds 10-Week-Old Puppy In Bag On Side Of Road

Aaron Kinsel is a truck driver working for the Rumpke Waste & Recycling and something caught his eye one morning as he gathered trash bins on the side of the road.

Driving a route outside of Cincinnati in Colerain Township, Aaron found a backpack discarded on the side of the road and something was moving in it. When he walked over to investigate, he found a 10-week-old puppy inside the bag and pulled it out.

Aaron said that he was “meant to find her,” according to the Animal Rescue Site.

The pup was taken to a veterinarian and discovered to be a female boxer suffering from dehydration and a broken leg. She needed expensive surgery or her leg would be amputated and at this point, Rumpke decided to pay the vet bills to have her properly taken care of. The waste company was honored to make her a member of the team and Aaron named her Tipper.

After speaking with the veterinarians, they advised them to amputate her leg to prevent future issues that could be the side effect of a surgery to save the leg. Rumpke ultimately decided to take the professional’s advice and shared an update about Tipper on Twitter.

Tipper is expected to make a full recovery and, hopefully, live a long and happy life with Aaron and Rumpke.
