A cute puppy named Ollie was left to die in the cold when his owners moved houses and decided to leave him by the roadside with their trash.

This little stray dog’s life was saved when Terri Looby, a volunteer from the Detroit Animal Welfare Group (DAWG), received a call about a cute dog, who was wandering around in the freezing winter of the American Midwest. Knowing that the subzero temperatures were clearly a risk to Ollie’s life, the animal shelter worker knew she had to act fast to save his life.

The dog rescuers fed Ollie and took him to the vet. It turned out that he had a broken femur, so they scheduled an operation for him.

Currently, Ollie is enjoying the good life and waiting to be the best family pet for someone. “[Ollie] has been full of love and kisses since he has been rescued,” Terri told Bored Panda. Meanwhile, the animal shelter staff added: “[He] has been an adorable, happy, tail-wagging puppy who just wants a family to love him and not toss him out like he is trash.”
