Since the little dog had no name or home, rescue workers named her Jan, after JanSport, the brand of bag in which she was found. And as word of her strange rescue spread throughout the organization, Jan soon became the most popular dog at the MSPCA.
No one could understand why such an adorable little dog would be left for dead under a bush. And a veterinary exam revealed that, other than age-related dental issues and minor hearing loss, Jan was surprisingly healthy.
“She’s really a sweet little pup,” Halpin said. “Usually when you come across animals who have been abandoned in such a way, it’s because there’s an obvious injury or illness … and this is just a total head-scratcher.”
