Puppy Found Dumped In Partly Frozen Creek Expected To Be Okay

SCOTT COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) – A puppy rescued from a partly frozen creek is expected to make a full recovery.

Scott County Animal Shelter officials say the dog, now called Chapel, had been placed in the bag and then that bag was stuffed inside another.  Then, someone dumped her in a creek bed alongside Highway 32.

Two good samaritans found the dog struggling to keep her head above water. One waded into the freezing creek and rescued her.

Shelter officials took Chapel to the vet and she is expected to be okay.  She is both blind and deaf and they hypothesize that is why she may have been thrown into the creek.

The group has been inundated with adoption requests, but now say they are working with a group that specializes in special needs animals and pairs them with homes.
