Dog Abandoned in Trash Can, Rescued

CREATED Jun. 28, 2013

Omaha, NE - The Nebraska Humane Society is caring for a little dog that was rescued Friday morning.

A man was at a car wash near 72nd and Maple. He said he was throwing out some garbage when he saw a trash bag moving, and then heard a whimper.  He untied the bag immediately and found a black terrier mix.

The man took the dog to the Nebraska Humane Society.  They say the dog would not have survived being stuffed in a trash can in Friday's heat.  They named him Little Eddie, because they think his under bite makes him look like Eddie Muenster.
