Last week, a man was driving past a landfill near Puerto Peñasco, Mexico, when he spotted an old tire close to the road. Something was moving inside, so he stopped to have a closer look. When he approached the tire, he found an old, skinny dog with dirty, matted fur.
The man contacted Claudia Ortega, manager for a vet hospital run by Compassion Without Borders (CWOB), an organization that rescues street dogs and cats in Mexico, and Ortega quickly went out to the site. When she arrived, the dog was still curled up inside the tire.
