Michelle Murray reached out on Tampa Bay Lost and Found Pets page on Facebook to see if anyone had information about the puppy. She also called Bill Gray, founder of Second Chance Friends, Inc. in Hillsborough County, and he responded right away.
Gray says the Murrays are heroes. “I’m not even sure I would have noticed something in the back of my truck,” Gray tells The Dodo. His rescue took in three dogs a week ago — each dog had been dumped on the side of the road.
“Jerry and Michelle could have done that, too, but instead brought this terrified puppy to us in the middle of a rainstorm to keep him safe,” he says. Gray’s wife Lisa named the puppy Zues. The couple can’t understand who would do this and why. Local authorities are looking to see if street cameras caught anything on video.
