The Indiana Department of Transportation’s litter crews were cleaning an Indiana highway when they discovered an unexpected, but adorable discovery. While picking up rubbish, members came upon a little puppy that was alone on the side of the road.
They snapped a few pictures with the friendly pup before bringing him to safety.
The photographs were uploaded on the Indiana Department of Transportation’s Facebook page, and one of the crew members stated he brought the puppy home and will have him scanned for a microchip as soon as possible.
It’s unclear whether the puppy belonged to someone and was abandoned, or if it was born a stray. He would not have lasted much longer on the side of the road without food or water, so he is now safe and out of harm’s way. If the puppy does not have a microchip and no owner can be traced, it will be put up for adoption or adopted by a member of the team!
