Police are still seeking out the person responsible for leaving the dog, and are asking anyone who may have information to come forward. The dog, meanwhile, is now under the care of Santa Fe Animal Shelter and Humane Society, and is said to be doing well.
"She is social and loves people. I was actually hanging out with her today," Murad Kirdar, the shelter's public relations officer, told The Dodo. "We still do not know if she is pregnant — too early to tell. [But] the safety of the dog was not the person's main concern."
