TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The public was outraged when this story was posted on social media. This poor pup was found by a Good Samaritan inside a box that was taped shut, near Catalina Highway and Tres Lomas over the weekend.
The dog was rushed to the Pima Animal Care Center by the person who found him and has since been pulled by local shelter Lil Bit of Love.
According to reports the dog is in rough shape and the shelter staff is doing all they can for the pup to nurse it back to health.
Lil Bit of Love is asking that people not ask about the pup's adoption status yet, as they will be concentrating on his getting better.
