The 18-month-old dog, later named Penny, was clearly very sick and desperately in need of help. She was laying at the edge of the trash pile covered in mud, unable to move, and could barely even lift her head to greet her rescuers. The men immediately contacted the RSPCA, which rushed out to rescue Penny as quickly as possible.
“She wasn’t visible from the road and I hate to think what could have happened to her if they hadn’t broken down in the area and stumbled across her,” Rebecca Benson, an inspector with the RSPCA, said in a press release. “She must have had a guardian angel looking out for her.”
